A Study of ASTX030 (Cedazuridine in Combination With Azacitidine) in MDS, CMML, or AML

Multiple Cancer Types

Study ASTX030-01 is designed to move efficiently from Phase 1 to Phase 3. Phase 1 consists of
an open-label Dose Escalation Stage (Stage A) using multiple cohorts at escalating dose
levels of oral cedazuridine and azacitidine (only one study drug will be escalated at a time)
followed by a Dose Expansion Stage (Stage B) of ASTX030. Phase 2 is a randomized open-label
crossover study to compare oral ASTX030 to subcutaneous (SC) azacitidine. Phase 3 is a
randomized open-label crossover study comparing the final oral ASTX030 dose to SC
azacitidine. The duration of the study is expected to be approximately 48 months.

Decitabine and Cedazuridine in Combination with Venetoclax for the Treatment of Patients who have Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia after Donor Stem Cell Transplant


This phase II trial tests how well decitabine and cedazuridine (DEC-C) works in combination with venetoclax in treating acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in patients whose AML has come back after a period of improvement (relapse) after a donor stem cell transplant. Cedazuridine is in a class of medications called cytidine deaminase inhibitors. It prevents the breakdown of decitabine, making it more available in the body so that decitabine will have a greater effect. Decitabine is in a class of medications called hypomethylation agents. It works by helping the bone marrow produce normal blood cells and by killing abnormal cells in the bone marrow. Venetoclax is in a class of medications called B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) inhibitors. It may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking Bcl-2, a protein needed for cancer cell survival. Giving DEC-C in combination with venetoclax may kill more cancer cells in patients with relapsed AML.
