Brief Summary:
This first-in-human (FIH) dose-escalation and dose-validation/expansion study will assess ziftomenib, a menin-MLL(KMT2A) inhibitor, in patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) as part of Phase 1. In Phase 2, assessment of ziftomenib will continue in patients with NPM1-m AML.

Detailed Description:

This Phase 1/2, first-in-human (FIH), open-label, dose-escalation and dose-validation/expansion study will assess ziftomenib, a menin-MLL(KMT2A) inhibitor, in patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

The dose-escalation part of the study (Phase 1a) will determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) and/or the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D).

The dose-validation/expansion part of the study (Phase 1b) will determine the safety, tolerability, and minimal biologically effective dose of ziftomenib in dosing cohorts which have demonstrated early biological activity and have been determined to be safe in the dose-escalation phase.

The Phase 2 portion of the study will determine the safety, tolerability, and anti-leukemia activity of ziftomenib in patients with NPM1-m AML.

  2. Phase 1a: Tmax [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 and Cycle 2. Each cycle is 28 days. ]
    Time to observed maximum plasma concentration of ziftomenib and/or its metabolites

  3. Phase 1a: AUC(0-last) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 and Cycle 2. Each cycle is 28 days. ]
    Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to time of last measurable concentration of ziftomenib and/or its metabolites

  4. Phase 1a: Cmax [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 and Cycle 2. Each cycle is 28 days. ]
    Maximum plasma concentration of ziftomenib and/or its metabolites

  5. Phases 1a, 1b, and 2: Composite definition of complete remission (CR) and complete remission with partial hematologic recovery (CRh) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months following discontinuation of treatment ]
    To assess the CR (CR+CRh) rate

  6. Phases 1a, 1b, and 2: Complete response (CR) with and without minimal residual disease (MRD) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months following discontinuation of treatment ]
    To assess the CR rate with and without MRD

  7. Phases 1a, 1b, and 2: Duration of remission (DOR) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months following discontinuation of treatment ]
    To assess the DOR

  8. Phases 1a, 1b, and 2: Transfusion independence (TI) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months following discontinuation of treatment ]
    To assess transfusion independence

  9. Phases 1a, 1b, and 2: Event-free survival (EFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months following discontinuation of treatment ]
    To assess event-free survival

  10. Phases 1a, 1b, and 2: Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months following discontinuation of treatment ]
    To assess overall survival
