Brief Summary:

This is an open-label, nonrandomized phase 2 trial to assess the efficacy of cobimetinib in RAS pathway activated CMML.

All eligible patients will be treated daily with cobimetinib in 28-day cycles. Cobimetinib will be administered for three weeks followed by a one week break prior to the start of the following cycle. Patients will remain on study therapy until treatment discontinuation criteria is met.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia (CMML) Drug: Cobimetinib Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label, nonrandomized phase 2 trial to assess the efficacy of cobimetinib in RAS pathway activated CMML. Two cohorts of patients will be accrued using Simon's two-stage design (Simon, 1989) for both cohorts. Cohort 1 will enroll nine newly diagnosed patients in the first stage and if four or more responses are observed five additional patients will be enrolled in the second stage. Cohort 2 will enroll six HMA refractory patients in the first stage and if one or more responses are observed then nine additional patients will be enrolled in the second stage.

All eligible patients will be treated daily with cobimetinib in 28-day cycles. Cobimetinib will be administered consecutively for three weeks followed by a one week break prior to the start of the following cycle. Patients will remain on study therapy until treatment discontinuation criteria is met.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment: all patients
Cobimetinib is taken on a 28-day cycle. Each dose consists of three 20 mg tablets (60 mg) and should be taken once daily for 21 consecutive days (Days 1 to 21-treatment period); followed by a 7-day break (Days 22 to 28-treatment break). Each subsequent cobimetinib treatment cycle should start after a 7-day treatment break has elapsed.
Drug: Cobimetinib
Cobimetinib is taken on a 28-day cycle. Each dose consists of three 20 mg tablets (60 mg) and should be taken once daily for 21 consecutive days (Days 1 to 21-treatment period); followed by a 7-day break (Days 22 to 28-treatment break). Each subsequent cobimetinib treatment cycle should start after a 7-day treatment break has elapsed.




Primary Outcome Measures :

Overall response rate defined as the proportion of patients achieving complete remission, complete cytogenetic remission, partial remission, marrow response, and clinical benefit according to the 2015 MDS/MPN-IWG criteria [ Time Frame: From 1st dose of study medication to decision to end treatment or up to 12 months of treatment, whichever came first ]
    assess the efficacy of cobimetinib in patients with newly diagnosed and HMA- refractory chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency of adverse events characterized by seriousness, severity (CTCAEv5.0), duration and relationship to study therapy. [ Time Frame: Until decision to end treatment or up to 12 months of treatment, whichever came first ]
    assess the safety of cobimetinib treatment in CMML

  2. Proportion of patients achieving complete response complete response (CR) + partial response (PR) [ Time Frame: Until decision to end treatment or up to 12 months of treatment, whichever came first ]
    Assessment of complete response (CR) + partial response (PR) rate (defined by 2015 MDS/MPN-IWG criteria)

  3. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: up to 36 months after the start of therapy, the time of progression, initiation of alternative treatment or death, whichever came first ]
    Assessment of long-term efficacy

  4. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Study anticipated to be 60 months. ]
    Assessment of long-term efficacy

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female subject aged ≥ 18 years.
  • Newly diagnosed or hypomethylating agent (HMA) refractory chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML -0/-1/-2; 2016 WHO classification) with RAS pathway activation as determined by standard of care hematopoietic cell sequencing results on peripheral blood or bone marrow demonstrating NRAS, KRAS, PTPN11, FLT3, CBL, JAK2, BRAF or NF1 mutations at variant allele frequency ≥ 5%. BMBx, NGS, FISH, and cytogenetics should be done at the primary trial site within 21 days prior to C1D1. The FLT3-ITD PCR allelic ration must be ≥ 0.05 on testing done on screening biopsy (NOTE: cannot quantitate FLT3-ITD VAF by NGS, must be a separate PCR test).
  • ECOG Performance Status ≤ 3.
  • Adequate organ function as defined as:

    • Hepatic:

      • Total Bilirubin ≤ 1.5x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN)
      • Unless elevation is related to Gilbert's syndrome, hemolysis, or thought to be due to leukemic hepatic involvement.
      • AST(SGOT)/ALT(SGPT) ≤ 3 × institutional ULN ----Unless elevation is related to leukemic hepatic involvement.
    • Renal:

      ---Serum creatinine ≤ 2x ULN

    • OR

      • Estimated creatinine clearance ≥ 30 mL/min by Cockcroft-Gault formula:
