Direct-to-Patient Trials: How IRT Plays an Important Role in Bellerophon's Direct-to-Patient Trials

As the industry strengthens its focus on patient centricity, Direct-to-Patient clinical trials have emerged as a popular trial design that have the potential to increase patient recruitment and retention. IRT plays a crucial role in the success of a Direct-to-Patient trial. Because drug supplies are being managed and shipped from distribution facilities directly to patients’ homes, a sponsor must have a high-quality system in place to accurately track the chain of custody, ensure patient-blinding and handle other logistical challenges.

The multi-centre, non-randomised, open-label trial will be conducted in two parts and will include newly-diagnosed FLT3-ITD AML patients who are unfit for intensive chemotherapy.

Part one of the study (dose escalation) will investigate the safety and tolerability of the drug combination to establish the dosing schedule, maximum tolerated dose and recommended dose for expansion.

The trial’s second part (dose expansion) will validate the safety and tolerability at the recommended dose for expansion of the study drug combination. This phase will also identify a recommended Phase II dose.

“We also are exploring the potential of the combination of quizartinib and milademetan in patients with newly-diagnosed FLT3-ITD AML who are unfit for intensive chemotherapy.”

Primary endpoint of the trial is safety, while its secondary endpoints include pharmacokinetics and preliminary efficacy.

Daiichi Sankyo aims to enrol around 110 patients in the US, Europe and Japan.

Daiichi Sankyo Oncology research and development vice-president Arnaud Lesegretain said: “We have initiated this combination study of quizartinib and milademetan in order to determine the safety and tolerability of the combination and if the addition of the MDM2 inhibitor milademetan may potentially further improve the outcomes of patients with relapsed / refractory FLT3-ITD AML beyond what has been previously reported with single agent quizartinib.

“In this study, we also are exploring the potential of the combination of quizartinib and milademetan in patients with newly-diagnosed FLT3-ITD AML who are unfit for intensive chemotherapy.”

Quizartinib is a FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) inhibitor, while milademetan is a mouse double minute 2 homolog (MDM2) inhibitor.
