Intravenous Administration of RGI-2001 in Patient Undergoing Allogenic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (AHSCT)

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT01379209


The clinical trial is a Phase 1/2a, open-label, multi-center, dose-escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile of RGI-2001 in patients undergoing AHSCT, with radiation or non-radiation myeloablative preparative treatment. The study will be separated into two parts; a dose escalation phase to assess safety, followed by a large expansion phase to further evaluate the pharmacologic effects of either a Maximum Tolerated Dose, Maximum Feasible Dose or optimal pharmacologically active dose of RGI-2001. The initial dose escalation safety portion of the study (Part 1) will include higher risk patients and limit the unrelated donor transplants. After safety is established in part 1 of the study, the second portion of the study will expand the enrollment criteria and allow transplantation by either related or unrelated donors. This study will endeavor to identify the dose range at which RGI-2001 has an acceptable safety profile, at which biologic activity is observed, and to guide possible dose levels to utilize in later phase studies based on biological activity.

   Aplastic anemia (AA)

   3. Male or female, age ≥18 years of age

   4. Reasonable expectation of survival for at least 3 months, if the transplant procedure
   is successful

   5. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) status of 0-2 or Karnofsky Performance
   Status (KPS) of > 60

   6. Transplant Donor

      1. Part 1 (Phase 1: Dose Escalation Phase):

      Unrelated transplant donor with no more than 1 HLA allele or antigen mismatch,
      defined as loci A, B, C and DR (note: DQ is excluded)

      2. Part 2 (Phase 2a: Expansion Phase):Related or unrelated transplant donor, with no
      more than 1 HLA allele or antigen mismatch, defined as loci A, B, C and DR (note:
      DQ is excluded).

   7. Source of the allograft

      1. Part 1 (Phase 1: Dose Escalation Phase):Unmodified (non-manipulated) bone marrow,
      or mobilized peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant, using G-CSF as the
      mobilizing agent.

      2. Part 2: (Phase 2a: Expansion Phase) Unmodified (non-manipulated) bone marrow, or
      mobilized peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant, using G-CSF as the
      mobilizing agent.

   8. Anti-graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) prophylaxis:

   A calcineurin inhibitor [either tacrolimus (FK506) or cyclosporin A)], in combination
   with either methotrexate (MTX), mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) or sirolimus (RAPA) all at
   doses as per the institutional protocols
