Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and clinical activity of AG-636, an oral Dihydroorotate Dehydrogenase (DHODH) inhibitor, in subjects with advanced lymphoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphoma Drug: AG-636 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this Phase 1, multicenter, open-label study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of AG-636 and characterize its dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) when given by mouth to subjects with advanced lymphoma that is refractory to standard treatment. During the dose escalation part of the study successive cohorts of subjects will be treated with increasing doses of AG-636 in order to determine its maximum tolerated dose (MTD). Subsequently, in the dose expansion part of the study, additional subjects will be treated at the MTD in order to confirm that dose's safety, tolerability, PK and PD, and to provide an opportunity to detect anti-lymphoma activity. The dose expansion part of the study will support the selection of a dose for future clinical studies (a recommended Phase 2 dose [RP2D]).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AG-636
AG-636 dosed orally.
Drug: AG-636
AG-636 will be administered orally intermittently in 28-day cycles.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The frequency of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) associated with AG-636 administration during the first cycle (first 28 days) of treatment. [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days, on average ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Characterize the Safety and Tolerability of AG-636 (number of treatment-related Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks, on average ]
    As determined by the number of treatment-related Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events

  2. Characterize the Pharmacodynamics of AG-636 [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks, on average ]
    Measured by changes from baseline in circulating upstream metabolites

  3. Pharmacokinetics of AG-636 in plasma [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks, on average ]
    Determined by the plasma concentration versus time profile of AG-636

  4. Clinical activity of AG-636 in Lymphoma [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks, on average ]
    Assessed by either the Lugano criteria for lymphoma or the 2011 International Society for Cutaneous Lymphomas (ISCL)/United States Cutaneous Lymphoma Consortium (USCLC)/ European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) criteria for mycosis fungoides (MF)/Sézary syndrome (SS)

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Be ≥18 years of age.
  2. Have a pathologically confirmed diagnosis of a non-Hodgkin or Hodgkin lymphoma that has progressed in spite of prior treatment, and for whom additional effective (curative or life-prolonging) standard therapy is not available. The lymphomas included in this study must fall within one of the following 2017 World Health Organization categories:

    1. Mature B-cell neoplasms (excluding plasma cell neoplasms, heavy chain disease, and primary central nervous system [CNS] lymphoma)
    2. Mature T- and NK-cell neoplasms
    3. Hodgkin lymphomas
    4. Immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorders
  3. In the case of subjects who have lymphoma for which high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (HD-ASCT) is considered a standard curative therapy, eligibility for this study requires that the subject's disease has relapsed after HD-ASCT, that the subject is not eligible for HD-ASCT, or that the subject has refused HD-ASCT.
  4. Have disease that can be clinically evaluated for improvement or progression. In the dose expansion phase of the study, subjects must have disease that is measurable (as defined by either the Lugano criteria for lymphoma or the 2011 ISCL/USCLC/EORTC criteria for MF/SS).
  5. Have an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤2.
  6. Have an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1,000/uL.
  7. Have a platelet count ≥75,000/uL.
  8. Have a serum total bilirubin level ≤1.5×ULN (upper limit of normal) in the absence of Gilbert syndrome. Subjects with Gilbert syndrome must have a serum total bilirubin level ≤1.5× their baseline value.
  9. Have alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) levels ≤3.0×ULN, unless due to underlying hematologic malignancy. If ALT/AST elevations are determined to be due to involvement by the underlying hematologic malignancy, subjects must have ALT/AST levels <5.0× the ULN.(Note: There are no specific requirements for alkaline phosphatase [ALP].)
  10. Have a creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≥ 30 mL/min (either measured or estimated by the Cockcroft-Gault formula). (Cockcroft-Gault formula for estimated creatinine clearance [eCrCl]: eCrCl = [140 - Age] × Weight [kg] × [0.85 if Female] / [72 × serum creatinine (mg/dL)]).
  11. Be fully recovered from major surgery and from the acute toxic effects of prior chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Residual chronic toxicities of prior therapy, eg, alopecia, Grade ≤2 peripheral neuropathy, are allowed.
  12. If female with reproductive potential, must have a negative serum pregnancy test prior to the start of study therapy. Females of reproductive potential, as well as fertile men and their female partners of reproductive potential, must agree to use 2 effective forms of contraception.
  13. Able to understand and have provided written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Have a primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma.
  2. Have lymphomatous involvement of the CNS that is symptomatic or requires therapy. However, subjects who have completed treatment for lymphoma involving the CNS and have no further evidence of disease in the CNS may be enrolled in this study.
