Brief Summary:
YL-13027-001 is a phase I open-label, first in human, dose escalation study which investigate the tolerability, safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) and efficacy of YL-13027 in subjects with advanced stage solid tumors.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Solid Tumors Drug: YL-13027 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a open-label, single-center, dose-escalation, phase I study of YL-13027 comprised of a dose escalation part and a dose expansion part in subjects with advanced stage solid tumors. The study will investigate the tolerability, safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) and efficacy of YL-13027, and will define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of YL-13027 using an accelerated titration test and 3+3 design. a dose expansion part will identify the recommended phase 2 dose. YL-13027 is an orally bioavailable small molecule that inhibits protein serine/threonine kinase of activin receptor-like kinase 5 (ALK5) and blocks intracellular signaling of TGF-β by inhibiting the phosphorylation of ALK5 substrates. In this clinical trial, YL-13027 is given orally daily. A treatment cycle is defined as 28 days. Adverse events (AEs) were graded by NCI-CTCAE V5.0. Efficacy was evaluated according to RECIST V1.1.

Official Title: First in Human Dose Escalation Study of YL-13027 Monotherapy in Subjects With Advanced Stage Solid Tumors
Actual Study Start Date : March 19, 2019
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 30, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 30, 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: YL-13027
YL-13027 tablets will be given daily for 28 days in 28-day cycles until there appears evidence of progressive disease, intolerable toxicity, or the subject discontinues from the study treatment for other reasons.
Drug: YL-13027
Daily doses by oral administration on each day of each 28 day cycle. Starting dose is 60mg, with escalation to 360mg, and subsequent dose escalation using a modified Fibonacci algorithm.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose limited toxicities evaluated with NCI-CTC AE v5.0 [ Time Frame: within 28 days after the first dose ]
    Incidence of dose limited toxicities and associated dose of YL-13027

  2. Adverse events evaluated by NCI CTCAE v5.0 [ Time Frame: from the first dose to within 30 days after the last dose ]
    Incidence of adverse events and associated dose of YL-13027

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Plasma concentration of YL-13027 [ Time Frame: within 56 days after the first dose ]
    This composite endpoint will measure the plasma concentration of YL-13027

  2. Objective response rate [ Time Frame: within 30 days after the last dose ]
    the proportion of subjects who have a Complete Response or Partial Response

  3. Disease control rate [ Time Frame: within 30 days after the last dose ]
    the proportion of subjects who have a Complete Response or Partial Response
