Enrollment: 2
Study Start Date: November 2013
Study Completion Date: December 2013
Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: AZD6738
Patients will receive a single dose on day 1 followed by ongoing multiple dosing until MTD or MFD is reached.
Drug: Administration of AZD6738
An oral formulation of AZD6738 will be used. The starting dose of 20 mg BD will be escalated to reach a maximum tolerated dose in patients as defined by dose-limiting toxicity. A '3 week on, 1 week off' schedule, as deemed optimal in modelling of data from non-clinical studies, will be used initially

Detailed Description:

In this first time in patient study, AZD6738 will be administered to patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), prolymphocytic leukaemia (PLL) or B cell lymphomas, primarily to determine the safety and tolerability of AZD6738. Pharmacokinetics of AZD6738 and potential biological activity will also be investigated.

An oral formulation of AZD6738 will be used. The starting dose of 20 mg twice daily (BD) will be escalated to reach a maximum tolerated dose in patients as defined by dose-limiting toxicity. A '3 week on, 1 week off' schedule, as deemed optimal in modelling of data from non-clinical studies, will be used initially.

Following the dose escalation phase of the study, additional patients with prospectively identified 11q-deleted or ATM deficient relapsed/refractory CLL will be enrolled to a dose expansion phase to explore further the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and biological activity at selected dose(s)/schedule(s).
