VK-2019-001 is a 1/2a trial of the oral EBNA-1 targeting agent VK-2019 in patients with EBV-positive recurrent or metastatic NPC to determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D), as well as to evaluate the PK profile of VK-2019.


This is a Phase 1/2a, open-label, multicenter, first-in-human trial to evaluate the safety and tolerability, PK, PD, and preliminary efficacy of VK-2019 in patients with EBV-positive NPC.

This trial is divided into three parts: Phase 1 Dose Escalation, Phase 1 Dose Expansion, and Phase 2s Dose Expansion.

The objectives of the dose escalation part are to determine the safety, tolerability, MTD, recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), and to evaluate the anti-tumor activity of orally administered VK-2019 monotherapy. Additional objectives are to determine the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of VK-2019.

VK-2019 will be dosed once daily (QD).
