This study is a dose escalation, and cohort expansion study in subjects with advanced cancer for which no standard therapy exists. Subjects must have received prior treatment for cancer that has not worked, or has stopped working.

Official Title

A Phase 1/2, Open-Label, Uncontrolled, Multiple Dose Escalation, Cohort Expansion Study To Evaluate The Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics And Preliminary Efficacy Of Asn002 In Relapsed/Refractory Lymphoma, Myelofibrosis, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, And Advanced Solid Tumors


The study will be conducted in two parts. Part A is a dose escalation study to determine a safe and tolerable dose of ASN002 for subjects with relapsed or refractory lymphoma, or advanced solid tumors. Part A will also characterize the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ASN002 through blood sampling. Subjects in Part B will enroll subjects with four types of lymphoma Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL), Follicular Lymphoma (FL), Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) and Peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). Additional groups of subjects with Myelofibrosis (MF) and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) will be enrolled. Subjects will be treated with the highest safe and tolerable dose determined in Part A of the study to determine preliminary efficacy. Subjects may continue to receive ASN002 for up to 1 year in the absence of severe side effects or disease progression.

  • Have received prior treatment with monoclonal antibodies within 6 weeks of first dose of Day 1;
  • Have had major surgery within 30 days prior to the start of Day 1;
  • Received any investigational treatment within 4 weeks prior to the start of study medication;
  • Have had an infection requiring the use of parenteral antibiotics within 14 days prior to the start of Day 1;
  • Have known central nervous system metastasis or Central Nervous System lymphoma;
  • Is receiving high dose corticosteroids (>10 mg prednisone daily or equivalent);
  • Has known bleeding diathesis that would be a safety risk;
  • Has a history of other malignancy within the 3 years prior to screening, except adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or carcinoma in-situ;
  • Has difficulty swallowing medications, or known history of malabsorption syndrome;
  • Has a serious concurrent medical condition, such as: congestive heart failure New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV or uncontrolled hypertension at screening,12-Lead electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities considered by the investigator to be clinically significant including myocardial infarction, angioplasty, or cardiac stent placement within the last 6 months, HIV infection, known Hepatitis B or C infection.Subjects at high risk for Hepatitis B or C infection should have serology testing to rule out infection, a medical condition requiring the therapeutic use of anticoagulants.
  • Known hypersensitivity to ASN002 or its excipients;
  • Prior participation, i.e., receipt of study medication, in this study;
  • Any condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, would impair the subject's ability to comply with study procedures;
