The primary Phase 1 purpose of this study is to assess overall safety and tolerability and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of APL-101. The Phase 2 portion will assess efficacy of the dose determined in phase 1 in individuals with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with c-Met EXON 14 skip mutations and c-Met Dysregulation Advance Solid Tumors

Official Title

Phase 1 / 2 Multicenter Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Preliminary Efficacy of APL-101 in Subjects With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer With c-Met EXON 14 Skip Mutations and c-Met Dysregulation Advance Solid Tumors


This is a Phase 1, multi-center, open-label, 2-part study with a Dose Escalation Segment and Dose and Disease Expansion Cohorts study of APL-101, a c-MET inhibitor, to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) and dose limiting toxicities for APL-101, and to obtain preliminary efficacy and target engagement data, in subjects with NSCLC and advanced malignancies with c-Met dysregulation.

c-MET dysregulation will be determined from historical results by molecular pre-screening evaluations to determine eligibility of enrollment for both the Dose Escalation Segment and Dose and Disease Expansion Cohorts. However, in the Dose and Disease Expansion Cohorts, the c-MET historical results will be confirmed by a central laboratory retrospectively, but will not be a determinant for study entry.

Dose escalation will occur until a protocol defined dose limited toxicity (DLT) occurs and a tentative maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined.

Once dose is determined, three cohort groups will be further evaluated: Cohort A: EXON 14 NSCLC (c-Met naïve), Cohort B: EXON 14 NSCLC (c-Met experienced; progressed on prior c-Met inhibitor), Cohort C: basket of tumor types with c-Met dysregulation (amplification or mutation or fusions)
