NCT02571036 : A Safety, Tolerability and PK Study of DCC-2618 in Patients With Advanced Malignancies
PhasePhase 1
AgesMin: 18 Years Max: N/A
Inclusion Criteria (Escalation and Expansion Phases)

Patients must meet the following criteria to be eligible to enroll in the study:

1. Patients must have histologically confirmed solid tumors or hematologic malignancies.
Eligible patients include the following:

a) GIST patients must have a KIT and PDGFRA mutation and must have progressed on or
had an intolerability to at least 1 line of systemic anticancer therapy: i. Patients
with a pre-existing resistance mutation to an approved line of therapy are eligible.
For example, imatinib resistant mutations including KIT Exon 17 and PDGFRA D842V.

b) SM patients must have a confirmed diagnosis (confirmed by a central independent
pathologist) of advanced SM according to 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) criteria
for SM and must have documented KIT mutant disease. SM patients must also have a
normal karyotype.

Advanced SM includes: ASM, SM-AHN, wherein the AHN does not require immediate
alternative therapy, such as acute myeloid leukemia. AHNs that are eligible include:
low grade myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with a high SM burden who require treatment
for SM only, myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), MDS/MPN, and HES/CEL], and MCL i.
Patients with advanced SM must present with at least 1 eligible C-Finding (organ
damage) as outlined in Table 3 of the 2013 International Working
Group-Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Research and Treatment (IWG-MRT) & European
Competence Network on Mastocytosis (ECNM) consensus response criteria (Appendix 10.5);
please see below for MCL exception) (#iii).

ii. Patients with imatinib-sensitive KIT mutations must have progressed on or were
intolerant to a tryosine kinase inhibitor.

iii. Patients with histopathologically-confirmed MCL without a C-finding are eligible.

iv. Patients with symptomatic SSM are eligible. By definition, SSM patients must have
at least 2 B-findings, and clinically significant symptom burden (eg, flushing,
diarrhea, etc.) despite maximal treatment with approved agents to treat mediator
symptoms, such as antihistamines and cromolyn sodium. Patients must have a normal

v. Patients with hematologic malignancies featuring clonal expansion of eosinophils
driven by genomic alterations of KIT or PDGFR (eg, HES or CEL) must have a diagnosis
confirmed by a central independent pathologist and are eligible if they have
progressed on or are intolerant of imatinib therapy. Patients with de novo imatinib
resistant mutations, such as but not limited to KIT D816V or PDGFRA D842V, are
eligible without prior imatinib therapy.

c) Malignant glioma patients with genomic alterations potentially conferring
sensitivity to DCC-2618 including, but not limited to, amplification and/or mutations
of PDGFRA and/or KIT.

i. Patients must not require use of enzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs. ii. Patients
that require steroids must be on a stable dose for 2 weeks prior to the first dose of
study drug.

d) Other solid tumor patients that have alterations in genes encoding kinases that are
targets of DCC-2618. This includes KIT, PDGFR (A or B), TIE2, CSF1R, and VEGFR2.
Patients must have received approved treatments known to provide clinical benefit
prior to study entry.

e) If signs or symptoms suggest CNS metastases, a brain MRI must be performed to
confirm absence of CNS disease within 1 week prior to receiving study drug.

2. Patients with known CNS metastases may participate provided that:

1. they are stable (ie, without evidence of progression by magnetic resonance
imaging [MRI]) for at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose study drug (patients
with active disease may be eligible following discussion between the Investigator
and the Sponsor),

2. all neurologic symptoms have been stable for 2 weeks prior to the first dose of
study drug,

3. patients must not require use of enzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs,

4. patients that require steroids must be on a stable dose for 2 weeks prior to the
first dose of study drug.

3. Patients with solid tumors (with the exception of glial tumors and tumors that are
anatomically inaccessible) must have an archival tumor biopsy sample as long as no
anticancer therapy was administered since the sample was collected; otherwise, a
current biopsy is required. In the case of glial tumors and anatomically inaccessible
tumors, the most recent archival tissue is required.

4. Male or female patients =18 years of age.

5. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) of =2.

6. Female patients of childbearing potential must have a negative serum beta-human
chorionic gonadotropin (ß-hCG) pregnancy test within 28 days prior to the start of
study drug. For clinical sites in the UK, pregnancy testing must occur within 7 days
prior to the start of study drug.

7. Patients of reproductive potential must agree to follow the contraception requirements
outlined in Section 6.8.11.

8. The patient is capable of understanding and complying with the protocol and has signed
the informed consent document. A signed informed consent form must be obtained before
any study-specific procedures are performed. Standard procedures performed as part of
the practice of medicine prior to consent (eg, imaging, physical exam) can be used to
determine eligibility if completed within 28 days prior to the initial dose of study

9. Patients with solid tumors must have at least 1 measurable lesion according to RECIST
Version 1.1 (non-nodal lesions must be =1.0 cm in the long axis or =double the slice
thickness in the long axis; nodal lesions must be =1.5 cm in the short axis) or
Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology Criteria (RANO).

a) A non-brain lesion in a previously irradiated area is eligible to be considered as
measurable disease as long as there is objective evidence of progression of the lesion
before study enrollment.

10. Adequate organ function and bone marrow function as indicated by the following central
laboratory screening assessments performed within 14 days prior to the first dose of
study drug. Local laboratory values obtained after screening and prior to Cycle 1 Day
1 dosing that do not meet the criteria below must be discussed with the Sponsor:

1. Solid Tumor Patients: Bone Marrow Function: Absolute neutrophil count (ANC)
=1500/µL; hemoglobin =9 g/dL; platelet count =75,000/µL.

2. All Patients:

i. Hepatic Function: Serum direct bilirubin =1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN)
(=3 × ULN if this elevation is solely due to ASM/MCL); aspartate transaminase
(AST)/alanine transaminase (ALT), =3 × ULN (=5 × ULN in the presence of hepatic
metastases or if this elevation is solely due to ASM/MCL).

ii. Renal Function: Serum creatinine =2.0 × ULN or creatinine clearance =50 mL/min
based either on urine collection or Cockcroft Gault estimation.

iii. Coagulation Profile: Prothrombin time (PT) - international normalized ratio
(INR)/partial thromboplastin time (PTT) =1.5 × ULN. Patients on a stable, maintenance
regimen of anticoagulant therapy for at least 30 days prior to study drug
administration may have PT/INR measurements >1.5 × ULN if, in the opinion of the
Investigator, the patient is suitable for the study. An adequate rationale must be
provided to the Sponsor prior to enrollment.

c) SM patients with one or more inadequate organ function laboratory value may be
eligible if both the Investigator and Sponsor deem it to be disease-related and the
abnormality qualifies as a C-Finding (see Appendix 10.5).

11. Resolution of all toxicities from prior therapy to =Grade 1 (or baseline) within 1
week prior to the first dose of study drug (excluding alopecia and =Grade 3 clinically
asymptomatic lipase, amylase, and creatine phosphokinase laboratory abnormalities).
