Article Title: Duvelisib, an oral dual PI3K-δ,γ inhibitor, shows clinical and pharmacodynamic activity in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic lymphoma in a phase 1 study
Abstract: Duvelisib (IPI-145), an oral, dual inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)- and -, was evaluated in a Phase 1 study in advanced hematologic malignancies, which included expansion cohorts in relapsed/refractory (RR) chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) and treatment-naive (TN) CLL. Per protocol, TN patients were at least 65years old or had a del(17p)/TP53 mutation. Duvelisib was administered twice daily (BID) in 28-daycycles at doses of 8-75mg in RR patients (n=55) and 25mg in TN patients (n=18.) Diarrhea was the most common nonhematologic AE (TN 78%, RR 47%); transaminase elevations the most frequent lab-abnormality AE (TN 33.3%, RR 30.9%); and neutropenia the most common grade 3 AE (RR 44%, TN 33%). The overall response rates were 56.4% for RR patients (1.8% CR, 54.5% PR) and 83.3% for TN patients (all PRs); median response duration was 21.0 months in RR patients but was not reached for TN patients. Based upon phase 1 efficacy, pharmacodynamics, and safety, duvelisib 25mg BID was selected for further investigation in a phase 3 study in RR CLL/SLL.
