Details and patient eligibility


This is an open-label, multicenter, first-in-human phase I/II study which is composed of 3 parts: phase I dose escalation, phase I dose extension and phase II. HH2853 will be administered orally on a continuous BID schedule on a continuous 28-day treatment cycle.

Full description

Phase I:

Phase I dose escalation The accelerated titration (ATD) incorporated with Bayesian Optimal Interval design (BOIN) will be used to assess the DLT, safety, tolerability, MTD and furthermore, to establish the RP2D. DLT assessment is only applicable to phase I dose escalation.

Eligible patients will be enrolled in the ascending dose until MTD/RP2D is established.

Phase I dose extension During the dose escalation phase, a dose extension with additional patients will be included in order to further evaluate the tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy at doses that have been evaluated as safe. The number of patients to be enrolled in each dose extension cohort is up to 15, but the final number of dose level can be determined and the final patient number at each dose level can be adjusted slightly based on available safety, efficacy, PK, and PD data upon agreement from sponsor and investigators (e.g. safety evaluation meeting). For phase I dose extension, approximately 30 patients will be enrolled based on initial estimate, but the final total number of patients will depend on the number of dose levels extended and patient number at each dose level.

The total number of patients is estimated to be approximately 60 patients for phase I dose escalation and dose extension, but the final total number of patients will depend upon the number of dose cohorts to reach MTD/RP2D, and patient number at each dose level.

Phase II(China Only):

Phase II is planned after the completion of phase I. Up to approximately 193 patients will be enrolled as outlined below:

Cohort 1: Relapsed/Refractory FL (n≈56) Cohort 2: Epithelioid sarcoma (n≈77) Cohort 3: Relapsed/Refractory PTCL, other relapsed/refractory Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas with EZH2 mutation, or advanced solid tumors with specific genetic alterations, including EZH2 mutation, INI1 deficiency, BAP1 deficiency, ARID1A mutation, or/and SMARCA4 mutation (n≈60)

  1. Histologically or cytologically documented advanced recurrent or metastatic solid tumor.

  3. Patients must have disease not amenable to surgery, radiation, or combined modality therapy with curative intent. One of the following criteria should be met.

Patients must experience at least one prior standard therapy. Disease progression occurred on or after last line of therapy, or intolerant to last line of therapy (maximum ≤3 lines, Patients without treatment options available known to provide clinical benefit are also eligible upon agreement from investigator and sponsor) There is no approved therapy, or for which standard therapy is unsuitable or refused by patients after being fully informed.

  1. Confirmed by local histology or cytology

HH2853 administered on a BID schedule in continuous 28-day treatment cycles
Experimental group
HH2853 is supplied as tables with dosage strength of 25mg and 200mg. HH2853 Tablet will be administered orally on a continuous twice daily (BID) schedule, on a flat scale of mg and not individually adjusted by weight or body surface area. A treatment cycle is defined as 28 days for the purposes of scheduling procedures and evaluations. All patients will be treated with HH2853 orally on a continuous BID schedule, beginning on Cycle 1 Day 1. But patients in accelerated titration (ATD) part should be administered a single dose on the first day in order to evaluate the PK of a single dose administration. Dosing is twice daily from the second day thereafter.
