This Phase 1, multicenter, open-label, dose escalation and expansion study is designed to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and preliminary clinical activity of FHD-609 given intravenously in subjects with advanced synovial sarcoma.


This study is an ascending multiple dose clinical trial with expansion arms. It is primarily intended to evaluate the safety and tolerability of FHD-609 when administered intravenously to subjects with advanced synovial sarcoma. The Dose Escalation Phase will allow for the determination of the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) and/or maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in subjects with advanced synovial sarcoma. This study will also evaluate the PK/PD profiles of multiple dose administration of FHD-609.

The Dose Expansion Phase will allow a more robust evaluation of the safety profile of FHD-609, including toxicities that may occur less frequently, and an assessment of anti-tumor activity. The data from this study in subjects with advanced synovial sarcoma, including safety, tolerability, PK/PD findings, and anti-tumor activity, will form the basis for subsequent clinical development of FHD-609.

in the Dose Escalation Phase and in Arm 2 of the Dose Expansion Phase
Subject must have measurable disease by RECIST v1.1, defined as at least one lesion
that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be
recorded) as ≥ 10 mm with calipers and/or CT scan. Measurable lesions cannot have

understand and be willing to sign an informed consent and, when applicable, subject

dose delays, interruptions, and/or reductions

LVEF of ≥ 40% by ECHO. Other methods of evaluating LVEF may be performed
according to institutional practice
Corrected QT interval (QTc) using Fridericia's formula (QTcF) < 470 msec
Subject must have adequate hepatic function as evidenced by
Serum total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN) (≤ 3.0 × ULN for
subjects with Gilbert's syndrome)
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 3.0 × ULN (≤
0 × ULN if liver metastases are present)
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) ≤ 3.0 × ULN (≤ 5.0 × ULN if liver metastases are
present and/or known bone disease is present)
No known portal vein thrombosis
Subject must have adequate renal function as evidenced by
• Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ≥ 50 mL/min (based on a contemporary, widely
accepted, and clinically applicable equation that estimates glomerular filtration rate
or a measure of glomerular filtration rate (e.g. Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology
Collaboration CKD-EPI)
Subject must have adequate hematologic function as evidenced by
Hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL (Red blood cell [RBC] transfusions to achieve this level will
be permitted up to 7 days prior to start of study drug and complete blood count
[CBC] criteria for eligibility are confirmed within 24 hours of first study
White blood cells (WBCs) ≥ 2.0 × 109/L
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.0 × 109/L
Platelets > 50 × 109/L (Transfusions to achieve this level will be allowed up to
hours prior to start of study drug.)
Subject must have adequate coagulation function as evidenced by
• International normalized ratio (INR) ≤ 1.5 or prothrombin time (PT) ≤ 1.5 × ULN and
partial thromboplastin time (PTT) ≤ 1.5 × ULN if not receiving anticoagulation
Note: For subjects on anticoagulants, exceptions to these parameters are allowed if
they are within the intended or expected range for their therapeutic use. Participants
must have no history of clinically significant active bleeding (within 14 days of
first dose of study drug) or pathological condition that carries high risk of bleeding
(for example, tumor involving major vessels or known esophageal varices)
