study started
estimated completion:



In the phase Ib, the primary purpose is to establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)(s)/recommended phase ll dose (RP2D) and schedule of LEE011 and MEK162 orally administered combination. Once the MTD(s)/RP2D have been determined for each tested schedule, additional patients will be enrolled in the phase II portion of the study at the RP2D on the chosen schedule in order to assess the anti-tumor activity of the combination in addition to continued evaluation of safety.

Official Title

A Phase Ib/II, Multicenter, Open Label, Study of LEE011 in Combination With MEK162 in Adult Patients With NRAS Mutant Melanoma


Locally Advanced or Metastatic NRAS Mutant Melanoma Melanoma

  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥ 9 g/dL.
  • Platelets ≥ 75 x 109/L without transfusions within 21 days before 1st treatment.
  • PT/INR and aPTT ≤ 1.5 ULN.
  • Serum creatinine ≤1.5 ULN.
  • Serum total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN).
  • AST and ALT ≤ 3 x ULN, except in patients with tumor involvement of the liver who must have AST and ALT ≤ 5 x ULN.

You CAN'T join if...

  • Patients who are currently receiving treatment with agents that are known to cause QTc prolongation in humans.
  • Patients who have neuromuscular disorders that are associated with elevated CK (e.g.,inflammatory myopathies, muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy) or elevated baseline CK levels (≥ Grade 2)
  • Patients who are currently receiving treatment with agents that are metabolized predominantly through CYP3A4 and that have a narrow therapeutic window.
  • Patients with concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled concurrent medical conditions that could compromise participation in the study (i.e. uncontrolled diabetes mellitus,clinically significant pulmonary disease, clinically significant neurological disorder, active or uncontrolled infection).
  • History or current evidence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or current risk factors for RVO (e.g. uncontrolled glaucoma or ocular hypertension, history of hyperviscosity or hypercoagulability syndromes).
