Protocol YY-20394-001 is a phase I open-label, first in human, dose escalation study to assess the tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and efficacy of YY-20394 in patients with relapse or refractory B cell malignant hematological tumor.
This is a two-part study comprised of a dose escalation part and a dose expansion part.

In the dose escalation part single patient cohorts will be dosed until a single related toxicity of Grade ≥ 3 or a Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) is observed. If this occurs, the study will switch to a conventional oncology 3+3 design (3 patients per dose cohort, with the potential to add an additional 3 patients if toxicity is observed) and escalation will continue until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is reached and a recommended Phase II (RP2D) dose is determined. Once the MTD is established a separate dose expansion part will enroll up total additional 12 patients at the RP2D.

In this clinical trial, YY-20394 is given orally once daily. A treatment cycle is defined as 28 days. YY-20394 was given until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal from the study. The protocol was initiated with a single-patient cohort, treated with oral YY-20394 20 mg once daily (QD). Subsequent cohorts used a 3+3 design and evaluated doses of 40-320mg QD. Adverse events (AEs) were graded by NCI-CTCAE v4.0. Efficacy was assessed according to IWG-NHL and CLL consensus response criteria.

Drug YY-20394

YY-20394 is a new type of PI3K-δ selective inhibitor which differs structurally from idelalisib and its analogs, showing high potency against PI3Kδ, but with markedly improved selectivity (>1,000-fold selectivity for PI3K-δ versus PI3Kγ). This higher selectivity for PI3Kδ may decrease the risk of serious infection seen with idelalisib and especially with duvelisib due to strong immune suppression.Preclinical evaluation has demonstrated improved efficacy and safety for YY-20394 compared to idelalisib.

YY-20394 Experimental

YY-20394 is a selective inhibitor of the delta isoform of phosphatidylinositol 3- kinase (PI3Kδ). YY-20394 for clinical use is presented as a sterile tablets at 20 mg, or 100 mg doses. The drug product is intended for oral administration.Preset cohorts of 3-6 subjects will be enrolled sequentially at doses of 20, 40, 80, 140, 200, 260 and 320 mg/day.
