Research Study Summary

A clinical research study of AG-120, Azacitidine and AG-221 for the treatment of Leukemia, Myeloid, Acute

Research Study Title

A Phase 1b/2 Open-label, Randomized Study of 2 Combinations of Isocitrate Dehydrogenase (IDH) Mutant Targeted Therapies Plus Azacitidine: Oral AG-120 Plus Subcutaneous Azacitidine and Oral AG-221 Plus SC Azacitidine in Subjects With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia Harboring an IDH1 or an IDH2 Mutation, Respectively, Who Are Not Candidates to Receive Intensive Induction Chemotherapy


This Phase 1b/2 study is an open-label, randomized, multicenter trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of oral AG-120 + Subcutaneous (SC) azacitidine and oral AG-221 + SC azacitidine in subjects with newly diagnosed AML with an IDH1 or an IDH2 mutation, respectively. The study population consists of subjects who are not candidates to receive intensive Inductive chemotherapy (IC). The study comprises a Phase 1b dose-finding and AG-120 expansion stage and a Phase 2 randomized stage.

All ages 18 Years and up

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects must satisfy the following criteria to be enrolled in the study:

  1. Subject is ≥ 18 years of age the time of signing the informed consent form (ICF).

  2. Subject must understand and voluntarily sign an ICF prior to any study-related assessments/procedures being conducted.

  3. Subject is willing and able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.

  4. Subject has newly diagnosed, primary (ie, de novo) or secondary (progression of MDS or myeloproliferative neoplasms [MPN], or therapy-related) AML according to the WHO classification with ≥ 20% leukemic blasts in the bone marrow: -Have an Isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) or Isocitrate dehydrogenase 2 (IDH2) gene mutation (R132, R140, or R172)

  5. IDH mutational status will be assessed locally; for sites without local testing capabilities, a referral lab will be identified.

  6. By the investigator's assessment who are not candidates to receive intensive Inductive chemotherapy (IC).

  7. Subject has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1 or 2.

  8. Subject has adequate organ function defined as:

  9. Serum aspartate aminotransferase/serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (AST/SGOT) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT) ≤ 3 x ULN, unless considered due to leukemic organ involvement.

  10. Serum total bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN. Higher levels are acceptable if these can be attributed to ineffective erythropoiesis, 3 times the upper limit of normal for Gilbert's syndrome (eg, a gene mutation in UGT1A1), or leukemic organ involvement.

  11. Serum creatinine < 2 x ULN or creatinine clearance > 30 mL/min based on the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) glomerular filtration rate (GFR):

GFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) = 175 × (Scr)-1.154 × (Age)-0.203 × (0.742 if female) × (1.212 if African American)

  1. Agree to serial bone marrow aspirate/biopsies.

  2. Females of childbearing potential (FCBP)* may participate, providing they meet the following conditions:

  3. Agree to practice true abstinence ** from sexual intercourse or to use highly effective contraceptive methods (eg, combined [containing estrogen and progestogen] or progestogen only associated with inhibition of ovulation, oral, injectable, intravaginal, patch, or implantable hormonal contraceptive; bilateral tubal occlusion; intra-uterine device; intrauterine hormone-releasing system; or male partner sterilization [note that a vasectomized partner is a highly effective birth control method provided that partner is the sole sexual partner of the FCBP trial participant and that a vasectomized partner has received medical assessment of the surgical success]) at screening and throughout the study, and for at least 4 months following the last study treatment; and

  4. Have a negative serum β-subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) pregnancy test (sensitivity of at least 25 mIU/mL) at screening; and

  5. Have a negative serum or urine (investigator's discretion under local regulations) β-hCG pregnancy test (sensitivity of at least 25 mIU/mL) within 72 hours prior to the start of study treatment in the Treatment Period (note that the screening serum pregnancy test can be used as the test prior to the start of study treatment in the Treatment Period if it is performed within the 72-hour timeframe).

  6. Male subjects must agree to practice true abstinence from sexual intercourse or agree to the use of highly effective contraceptive methods (as described above) with non-pregnant female partners of child bearing potential at screening and throughout the course of the study and should avoid conception with their partners during the course of the study and for at least 4 months following the last study treatment (6 months following last dose of azacitidine in Canada). Furthermore, the male subject must agree to use a condom while treated with azacitidine and for at least 4 months following the last azacitidine dose.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The presence of any of the following will exclude a subject from enrollment:

  • Subject is suspected or proven to have acute promyelocytic leukemia based on morphology, immunophenotype, molecular assay, or karyotype.

  • Subject has AML secondary to chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML).

  • Subject has received a targeted agent against an Isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) or Isocitrate dehydrogenase 2 (IDH2) mutation.

  • Subject has received prior systemic anticancer therapy, HSCT, or radiotherapy for AML.

Note: Hydroxyurea is allowed prior to enrollment for the control of peripheral leukemic blasts in subjects with leukocytosis. (however, hydroxyurea should not be given within 72 hours prior to and after administration of azacitidine). For subjects with secondary AML (eg, MDS or MPN) treatment for prior cancer is not exclusionary; full treatment information will be collected within the CRF. The use of all trans retinoic acid (ATRA) for suspected APL is not exclusionary provided it is discontinued prior to initiation of treatment in the protocol.

  20. Female subject who is pregnant or lactating.

  21. Subject has any significant medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from participating in the study.
