877-DF-TRIAL (877-338-7425)

Condition(s):Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia


Principal Investigator:Treon, Steven

Trial Description:
The primary objective of the study is to establish a pharmacologically active dose of mavorixafor in combination with ibrutinib based on pooled safety, clinical response, pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) data to select the recommended dose for a randomized registrations trial.

Eligibility Requirements:
- Participants must be able to sign informed consent
- Participants must have a clinicopathological diagnosis of WM and must meet the criteria for treatment using consensus panel criteria from the Second International Workshop on Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia
- Participant' WM must have confirmed MYD88L265P and CXCR4WHIM mutations
- Participants must have measurable disease, defined as the presence of serum IgM with a minimum IgM level of greater than or equal to (≥) 2 * the upper limit of normal (ULN)
- Participants may be treatment naïve or have received up to 3 prior treatment regimens for WM
- Participants must have an ECOG performance status of 0 or 1
- Participants must meet the following organ and bone marrow requirements:
i) Absolute neutrophil count greater than (>) 1,000/microliter (μL) ii) Platelet count ≥50,000/μL (platelet transfusion-independent) iii) Hgb ≥8 grams/deciliter (gm/dL) iv) Aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase less than or equal to (≤) 2.5 * the ULN and serum total bilirubin ≤1.5 * the ULN, unless secondary to known Gilbert's Syndrome or hepatic infiltration by WM, in which case the total bilirubin must be ≤3 * the ULN and direct bilirubin ≤1.5 × the ULN v) Serum lipase ≤1.5 * the ULN vi) Serum creatinine ≤2 * the ULN or a creatinine clearance of ≥30 milliliters (ml)/minute based on the Cockcroft-Gault equation
- Women of child-bearing potential (WOCBP) must have a negative pregnancy test
- WOCBP who are heterosexually active and male participants with female sexual partners of childbearing potential must agree to use an effective method of contraception (for example; oral contraceptives, double-barrier methods such as a condom and a diaphragm, intrauterine device) during the study and for 4 weeks after the last dose of study medication, or to abstain from sexual intercourse for this time; a woman not of childbearing potential is one who has undergone a bilateral oophorectomy or who is postmenopausal, defined as the absence of menstrual periods for 12 consecutive months
- Participants must be willing and capable of complying with the requirements of the study
Exclusion Criteria:
- Participants with symptomatic hyperviscosity syndrome; participants who undergo plasmapheresis for hyperviscosity may be considered for enrollment once IgM level is under 4,000 mg/dl
- Participants who have known hypersensitivity to mavorixafor or any of its components or to ibrutinib
- Participants who have previously received a CXCR4 inhibitor or a BTK inhibitor
- Participants who are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Participants with an infection requiring intravenous antibiotics or hospitalization at the scheduled time of the first administration of protocol therapy
- Participants with glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) >6.5%
- Participants with central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma; participants with suspected CNS lymphoma should undergo appropriate diagnostic studies (magnetic resonance imaging, lumbar puncture) before enrollment to determine if CNS lymphoma is present
- Participants with ongoing acute clinical AEs of National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for AEs (NCI CTCAE) Grade >1 resulting from prior cancer therapies or participants receive prior chemotherapy within 2 weeks of initial dosing or prior autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto-HSCT) within 6 weeks of initial dosing
- Participants with a history of, or positive serologies for, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection (participants with HBsAb positivity due to a hepatitis B virus [HBV] vaccination are eligible)
- Participants who have had within the past 6 months, the occurrence or persistence of one or more of the following medical conditions that could not be controlled with usual medical care (for example; required emergency care or hospitalization): hypertension, diabetes, unstable angina, seizure disorder, or myocardial infarction
- Participants with clinically significant cardiac disease, including congestive heart failure consistent with New York Heart Association Class 3 or 4; uncontrolled hypertension, clinically significant angina, clinically significant arrythmias including a history of atrial fibrillationin the last 2 years, corrected QT interval using Fridericia formula of >470 milliseconds (msec) or a history of prolonged QT syndrome
- Participants who have had within the past 6 months the occurrence of one or more of the following events: cerebrovascular accident, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, hemorrhage (NCI CTCAE Grade 3 or Grade 4), or chronic liver disease (meeting criteria for Child-Pugh Class B or C)
- Participants with prior organ transplantation (prior auto-HSCT are eligible)
- Participants who have an uncontrolled bleeding disorder or require an anticoagulant at the time of study treatment
- Participants with active autoimmune disease requiring systemic steroid administration
- Participants with active second malignancies. (except: malignancies that were treated curatively and have not recurred within 2 years prior to study treatment; completely resected basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers; any non-hematological malignancy considered to be indolent and that has never required therapy; and completely resected carcinoma in situ of any type)
- Participants who have received an investigational agent within 5 half-lives of the agent; if the half-life of the agent is unknown, patients must wait 4 weeks
- Participants who require strong or moderate inhibitors or inducers of CYP3A4 and potent P-gp inhibitors
- Participants who require medications which are classified as sensitive CYP2D6 substrates
- Participant who have received in the 2 weeks preceding the first dose of protocol treatment, any of the following agents:
i) Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor ii) Systemic corticosteroids in a dose of >10 mg equivalent of prednisone daily; topical, ophthalmic, intranasal, and inhalational corticosteroids are permitted iii) Any other immunomodulating agents, including but not limited to interferon alpha, interleukin (IL)-2, mycophenolate, antibodies to tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, soluble TNF receptors, Janus kinase inhibitors, or IL-23 antagonists
- Participants with any other medical, personal, social, or psychiatric condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may potentially compromise the safety or compliance of the participant or precludes the participant's participation in the study
