Protocol is designed to evaluate a niclosamide dose escalation scale in combination with cytarabine as a therapeutic modality for pediatric subjects with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.

Lead Sponsor:

Intervention(s):

  • Drug: Niclosamide

Phase:

Phase 1

   the presence of refractory disease after ≥ 2 cycles of chemotherapy must be documented
   by bone marrow (BM) examination demonstrating > 5% blasts in the BM not attributable
   to another cause. Administration of hydroxyurea 10 to 20 mg/kg/day PO (maximum 1000 mg
   PO BID) to control high WBC count is permitted.

   - Age ≥ 2 and ≤ 25 years

   - Body surface area (BSA) ≤ 2.10 m2, calculated per the Mostellar formula

   - Must be able to tolerate po or ng medications.

   - Performance status:

   - Subject age

   ≤ 16 years old: Lansky score ≥ 50 > 16 years old: Karnofsky score ≥ 50%

   - Life expectancy of greater than 4 weeks

   - Platelets ≥ 10,000/mm3 (for subjects with platelets < 10,000/mm3 at baseline, platelet
   transfusion support is allowed)

   - Serum creatinine ≤ 2.0 mg/dL or estimated creatinine clearance ≥ 30 mL/min (Cockcroft
   Gault) within 14 days prior to treatment initiation

   - Total bilirubin ≤ 2.0 x Institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) within 14 days prior
   to treatment initiation, unless the elevation is due primarily to elevated
   unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia secondary to Gilbert's syndrome or hemolysis or non
   hepatic origin, and not to liver dysfunction

   - SGOT (AST) ≤ 3.0 x ULN and SGPT (ALT) ≤ 3.0 x ULN within 14 days prior to treatment
   initiation

   - Females of reproductive potential (WOCBP) must have a negative pregnancy test within
   14 days prior to study treatment.

   - WOCBP must agree to use adequate contraception (eg, hormonal or barrier methods of
   birth control; abstinence; sterilized partner) for the duration of study participation

   - Men only: Men must agree to use adequate contraception (eg, hormonal or barrier
   methods of birth control; abstinence; sterilized partner) prior to the study treatment
   (from date of consent), for the duration of study participation, and 30 days after
   completion of niclosamide administration

   - Ability to understand the purpose and risks of the study and the willingness to sign a
   written informed consent document containing an authorization to use protected health
   information (in accordance with national and local subject privacy regulations

Exclusion Criteria:

   - Received anticancer therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy, or
   investigational therapy) within 2 weeks prior to starting study treatment.
   Administration of hydroxyurea 10 to 20 mg/kg/day PO (maximum 1000 mg PO BID) to
   control high WBC is permitted.

   - Receiving any other investigational agents.

   - Unresolved toxicities due to prior anticancer therapy, defined as not having resolved
   to Grade 0 or 1 (by CTCAE version 5 criteria), unless otherwise defined in the
   inclusion/exclusion criteria with the exception of alopecia

   - Acute promyelocytic leukemia (French American British Class M3 AML)

   - Known active central nervous system (CNS) leukemia; subjects can enroll on study if
   CNS disease can be cleared with intrathecal chemotherapy, in the judgement of the
   treating physician

   - Prior bone marrow transplant presenting with active uncontrolled graft versus host
   disease (GvHD)

   - Known congenital bleeding disorders, including but not limited to hemophilia

   - Known active uncontrolled systemic infection

   - Malabsorption syndrome, disease significantly affecting gastrointestinal function, or
   resection of the stomach or small bowel, uncontrolled symptomatic inflammatory bowel
   disease or ulcerative colitis, or partial or complete bowel obstruction, at the time
   of study entry

   - Inability to receive administration of niclosamide in the available formulation(s)

   - Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, uncontrolled active
   infection, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with
   study requirements
