Study Title

Phase 1 / 2 Multicenter Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Preliminary Efficacy of APL-101 in Subjects with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with c-Met EXON 14 Skip Mutations and c-Met Dysregulation Advanced Solid Tumors


The primary Phase 1 purpose of this study is to assess overall safety and tolerability and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of APL-101. The Phase 2 portion will assess efficacy of the dose determined in Phase 1 in individuals with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with c-Met EXON 14 Skip Mutations and c-Met Dysregulation Advanced Solid Tumors


Phase I Primary Objective To assess overall safety and tolerability, determine the dose limiting toxicities (DLTs), and identify the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D). Phase II Primary Objective: To assess efficacy by overall response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DOR) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1. or relevant evaluation criteria per tumor type. Phase I/II Secondary Objectives: To assess incidence of serious adverse events (SAEs) and adverse events (AEs) by relationship and severity grade. To determine the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of orally administered APL-101. To assess efficacy by clinical benefit rate (CBR: CR + P R + S D ≥ 4 cycles), time to progression (TTP), progression free survival (PFS), per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1 (or relevant evaluation criteria per tumor type) and overall survival (OS). Phase I/II Exploratory Objectives: To evaluate potential pharmacodynamic (PD) biomarkers of APL-101 and its correlation to the PK profile. To evaluate relationship of relevant biomarkers, including c-Met protein expression, amplification, and/or mutations to clinical response.

Inclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Able to understand and comply with study procedures, understand the risks involved, and provide written informed consent.
  • For Phase 1, histologically and / or cytological confirmed unresectable or metastatic solid malignancy, refractory to standard therapies with no more than three prior lines of therapy.
  • For Phase 2, five cohorts will be enrolled: Cohort A-1: NSCLC EXON 14 skip mutation (c-Met naïve) for first line treatment, Cohort A-2: NSCLC EXON 14 skip mutation (c-Met naïve) pretreated patients with no more than 3 lines of prior therapy, Cohort B: NSCLC EXON 14 skip mutation (c-Met experienced; radiographic progression on prior c-Met inhibitor), Cohort C: basket of tumor types with c-Met high level amplification (NSCLC EXON 14 skip mutation excluded), Cohort D: basket of tumor type with c-Met fusions.
  • Local/archival result (tissue and/or plasma) of a positive c-Met dysregulation is required
  • Measurable disease according to RECIST v1.1. (or relevant criteria per tumor type).
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-1.
  • For all prior anticancer treatment, including radiotherapy, chemotherapy or targeted agents or hormonal therapy, a duration of more than 30 days or 5 half-lives of the targeted/hormonal agents used, whichever is shorter, must have elapsed, and any encountered toxicity must have resolved to levels meeting all the other eligibility criteria prior to the first dose of study treatment.
  • No planned major surgery within 4 weeks of first dose of APL-101
  • Other criteria apply

  • Exclusion Criteria

    Exclusion Criteria:

  • Hypersensitivity to APL-101, excipients of the drug product, or other components of the study treatment regimen.
  • Known mutation/gene rearrangement of EGFR (except for Cohort C), ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK, KRAS, and BRAF.
  • Unstable angina or myocardial infarction within 1 year prior to first dose of APL-101, or symptomatic or unstable arrhythmia requiring medical therapy, or history of congenital prolonged QT syndrome or whose corrected QT interval by Fridericia formula (QTcF) at screening is prolonged (> 450 msec based on the average of 3 measurements) or concurrent treatment with any medication that prolongs QT interval.
  • Unable to swallow orally administered medication whole. Impairment of gastrointestinal function or gastrointestinal disease that may significantly alter drug absorption (e.g., Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, active inflammatory bowel disease, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or malabsorption syndrome).
  • Women who are breastfeeding
  • Other exclusions apply
