MSK 17-031 (AML, MDS)

A Biomarker-Directed Phase 2 Trial of SY-1425, a Selective Retinoic Acid Receptor Alpha Agonist, in Adult Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) or Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)

The purpose of this study is to determine the activity of SY-1425 in relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients, relapsed/refractory higher-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients (SY-1425 administered as a monotherapy or in combination with daratumumab), newly diagnosed treatment naïve AML patients who are unlikely to tolerate standard intensive chemotherapy (SY-1425 administered as a monotherapy or in combination with azacitidine), or lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients (SY-1425 administered as a monotherapy) who are positive for a RARA biomarker.

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. Patients must be at least 18 years of age.
  2. Patients must have
    • Relapsed and/or refractory non-APL AML that has failed to achieve a complete remission (CR) or partial remission (PR) following standard induction therapy, or has relapsed after any duration of CR or PR i. Patients must have measurable disease with bone marrow blasts ≥5%at screening.
    • Relapsed and/or refractory higher-risk MDS (High / Very High Risk, as defined by the Revised International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS-R)) that has failed to achieve a CR or PR, or any hematologic improvement (HI, per IWG 2006 criteria) after standard therapy with hypomethylating agents (e.g., azacitidine, decitabine), or has relapsed after any duration of CR or PR or HI i. Patients must have measurable disease with bone marrow blasts >5% at screening.
    • Newly diagnosed, treatment-naïve non-APL AML in patients who, at the time of study entry are unlikely to tolerate standard intensive chemotherapy due to age, performance status, or comorbidities based on at least one of the following criteria (Ferrara et al, 2013): i. Age ≥ 75 years old.

This study is for patients age 18 and older.
