Brief Summary:
Phase 1 will evaluate the safety and tolerability at different dose levels of repotrectinib in pediatric and young adult subjects with advanced or metastatic malignancies harboring anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), receptor tyrosine kinase encoded by the gene ROS1 (ROS1), or neurotrophic receptor kinase genes encoding TRK kinase family (NTRK1-3) alterations to estimate the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) or Maximum Administered Dose (MAD) and select the Pediatric Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Locally Advanced Solid Tumors Metastatic Solid Tumors Lymphoma Primary CNS Tumors Drug: Oral repotrectinib (TPX-0005) Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Enrollment of subjects into Phase 1 will proceed concurrently by age as follows:

• Subjects 4 to <12 years old will initially be enrolled in the Phase 1 part to determine the pediatric RP2D for this age group.

Phase 1:

Approximately 12 pediatric subjects with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors, including a primary central nervous system (CNS) tumor, or anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), with disease progression or who are non-responsive or intolerant to available therapies and for which no standard or available curative therapy exists.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Within 28 days of the first repotrectinib dose ]
    Define the dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) (Phase 1)

  2. Pediatric Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Within 28 days of the last patient dosed in escalation ]
    To determine the pediatric RP2D (Phase 1)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate (ORR) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Approximately three years ]
    To determine the overall response rate (ORR) by Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) (Phase 1)

  2. Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Approximately three years ]
    To determine the CBR of repotrectinib (TPX-0005) (Phase 1)

  3. Time to response (TTR) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Approximately three years ]
    To determine the TTR of reprotrectinib (TPX-005) (Phase 1)

  4. Duration of response (DOR) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Approximately three years ]
    To determine the DOR of repotrectinib (TPX-0005) (Phase 1)

  5. Intracranial objective response rate (IC-ORR) (Phase 1) [ Time Frame: Approximately three years ]
    To determine the IC-ORR of repotrectinib (TPX-005) (Phase 1)

  6. Maximum concentration of repotrectinib in plasma (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose on Day 1 and Day 15 in Cycle 1 (each cycle is 28 days) ]
    To determine the Cmax

  7. Area under the concentration versus time curve of repotrectinib in plasma (AUC) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose on Day 1 and Day 15 in Cycle 1 (each cycle is 28 days) ]
    To determine the AUC

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Documented genetic ALK, ROS1, or NTRK1-3 alteration (point mutation, fusion, amplification) as identified by local testing in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) laboratory in the US or equivalently accredited diagnostic lab outside the United States (US) is required.
  2. Age 4 to <12 years.
  3. Capability to swallow capsules intact (without chewing, crushing, or opening).
  4. Prior cytotoxic chemotherapy is allowed.
  5. Prior immunotherapy is allowed.
  6. Resolution of all acute toxic effects (excluding alopecia) of any prior anti-cancer therapy to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) Version 4.03 Grade less than or equal to 1.
  7. All subjects must have measurable disease by RECIST v1.1 or Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology Criteria (RANO) criteria at time of enrollment.
  8. Subjects with a primary CNS tumor or CNS metastases must be neurologically stable on a stable or decreasing dose of steroids for at least 14 days prior to enrollment.

    • Any clinically important abnormalities in rhythm, conduction, or morphology of resting ECG (e.g., complete left bundle branch block, third degree heart block, second degree heart block, PR interval > 250 msec)
    • Any factors that increase the risk of QTc prolongation or risk of arrhythmic events such as heart failure, congenital long QT syndrome, family history of long QT syndrome, or any concomitant medication known to prolong the QT interval
  6. Peripheral neuropathy of CTCAE ≥grade 2.
  7. Subjects being treated with or anticipating the need for treatment with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers.
