Trial Information

A Phase I/II Study of Eltrombopag in Elderly Patients With AML


Primary Objectives (Phase I Portion): 1). To determine the safety and tolerability of
eltrombopag in elderly subjects with AML 2). To determine the maximally tolerated initial
starting dose of eltrombopag for elderly subjects with AML Primary Objectives (Phase II
portion): 1). To better define the safety and tolerability of eltrombopag in elderly
patients with AML at the maximally tolerated starting dose Page 9 of 18 determined in Phase
I portion of study. 2). To determine the incidence of peripheral platelet count improvement
(using baseline and response parameters as defined below) for subjects with disease related
thrombocytopenia. Secondary Objectives (Phase I and II): 1). To preliminarily determine the
efficacy (using AML response criteria as defined below) of eltrombopag in elderly subjects
with AML.

2). To perform ex-vivo analyses using subject AML samples and stock eltrombopag to 1) assess
leukemic proliferative capacity and 2) investigate potential eltrombopag induced cytoxic
mechanisms for leukemic cell death. 3). To perform pharmacodynamic assessments of drug
activity in leukemic cells using subject samples collected at various time points before and
during drug exposure. 4). To preliminarily correlate pharmacodynamic findings with clinical
response.


Inclusion Criteria:



- A diagnosis of non-M3 AML which is either: a). Relapsed after standard chemotherapy
or transplant;
