Study Description

Brief summary:

A Phase 3, multicenter, open-label, randomized study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of fedratinib compared to best available therapy (BAT) in subjects with DIPSS (Dynamic International Prognostic Scoring System)-intermediate or high-risk primary myelofibrosis (PMF), post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis (post-PV MF), or post-essential thrombocythemia myelofibrosis (post-ET MF) and previously treated with ruxolitinib. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the percentage of subjects with at least 35% spleen volume reduction in the fedratinib and the BAT arms.

  • Condition or Disease:Primary Myelofibrosis
    Post-Polycythemia Vera
  • Intervention/Treatment: Drug: FEDRATINIB
    Drug: Best Available Therapy (BAT)
  • Phase: Phase 3
Detailed Description

This Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, two-arm, open-label study will include subjects with intermediate or high-risk (as per the DIPSS score) primary myelofibrosis (PMF), postpolycythemia vera myelofibrosis (post-PV MF), or post-essential thrombocythemia myelofibrosis (post-ET MF). This study will be conducted in compliance with International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) Good Clinical Practices (GCPs). Study design includes: - A 28-day Screening Period - 2:1 Randomization to fedratinib or best available therapy (BAT) - Stratification at Randomization according to: - Spleen size by palpation: < 15 cm below left costal margin (LCM) versus ≥ 15 cm below LCM - Platelets ≥ 50 to < 100 x 109/L versus platelets ≥ 100 x 109/L - Refractory or relapsed to ruxolitinib treatment versus intolerant to ruxolitinib treatment - Study Treatment Period (time on study drug plus 30 days after last dose) - Subjects are allowed to crossover from BAT to the fedratinib arm after the Cycle 6 response assessment or before the Cycle 6 response assessment in the event of a confirmed progression of splenomegaly by MRI/CT scan - A Survival Follow-up Period for progression and survival

Arms and interventions
Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Fedratinib 400mg/day
Will include up to 128 subjects receiving fedratinib 400 mg self-administered Investigational Product (IP) on an outpatient basis, once daily preferably together with food during an evening meal at the same time each day in consecutive 4-week (28-day) cycles.
A potent and selective inhibitor of JAK2 kinase activity
Active Comparator: Best Available Therapy (BAT)
Best-available Investigator-selected therapy included a number of available compounds to treat MF and/or its symptoms and was chosen by the investigator for each subject. Therapy changed at different times during the treatment period. No investigational agents (e.g. not approved for the treatment of any indication) were allowed. BAT also included the choice of no treatment.
