      Trial Summary

      This is an open-label, single-arm study of idasanutlin monotherapy in participants with hydroxyurea (HU)-resistant/intolerant Polycythemia vera (PV). The study will include two phases: initial phase and expansion phase. The initial phase will assess the safety and efficacy of idasanutlin monotherapy in ruxolitinib naïve and ruxolitinib-resistant or intolerant patients, respectively. If the initial phase shows promising results for ruxolitinib-resistant or intolerant patients, an expansion phase will be opened to further characterize the efficacy of idasanutlin.

      ≥ 18 Years Age
      No Healthy Volunteers
      Inclusion Criteria
      • Documentation that the participant has met the revised 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) criteria for the diagnosis of polycythemia vera (PV)
      • Hematocrit at screening and at initiation of idasanutlin greater than (>)40%
      • Phlebotomy-dependent participants with splenomegaly by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT) imaging (greater than or equal to [≥]450 cubic centimeters [cm^3]) or without splenomegaly (less than [<]450 cm^3 or prior splenectomy)
      • Resistance to/intolerance to hydroxyurea according to modified European Leukemia Net (ELN) criteria
      • For participants in the ruxolitinib intolerant or resistant group, in addition to previous hydroxyurea intolerance/resistance: Therapy-resistant PV after at least 6 months of treatment with ruxolitinib, as defined in the protocol; Ruxolitinib intolerance, as defined in the protocol; and Documentation of adverse events likely caused by ruxolitinib (assessment of attending physician) and that are of a severity that preclude further treatment with ruxolitinib (as per judgment of the attending physician and the patient)
      • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 1
      • Participants must be willing to submit the blood sampling and bone marrow sampling for the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic analyses and exploratory biomarkers
      • Adequate hepatic and renal function
      • Ability and willingness to comply with the study protocol procedures, including clinical outcome assessment measures
      • For women of childbearing potential: agreement to use contraceptive methods that result in a failure rate of less than (<)1% per year during the treatment period and for at least 6 weeks after the last dose of idasanutlin
      • For men: Agreement to use contraceptive measures, and agreement to refrain from donating sperm during the treatment period and for at least 90 days after the last dose of idasanutlin
      Exclusion Criteria
      • Meets the criteria for post-PV myelofibrosis as defined by the International Working Group-Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Research and Treatment (IWG-MRT)

      • Participants who must receive CYP2C8 inhibitors, substrates and inducers, strong CYP3A4 inducers, or OATP1B1/3 substrates while on study. These must be discontinued 7 days (inhibitors and substrates) or 14 days (inducers) prior to start of study medication
      • Previously treated with murine double minute 2 (MDM2) antagonist therapies or receiving interferon-alpha, anagrelide, or ruxolitinib within 28 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is shorter), or hydroxyurea within 1 day, or receiving any other cytoreductive or investigational agents within 28 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is shorter) of initial dose. Aspirin is permitted per treatment guidelines for PV unless medically contraindicated
      • Patients with evidence of electrolyte imbalance such as hypokalemia, hyperkalemia, hypocalcemia, hypercalcemia, hypomagnesemia, and hypermagnesemia of Grade >1 intensity, as per the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE), version 4.0, prior to dosing on Cycle 1 Day 1. Treatment for correction of electrolyte imbalances is permitted to meet eligibility
      • Neutrophil count <1.5 × 10^9/Liter (L) prior to dosing on Cycle 1 Day 1
      • Platelet count less than or equal to (≤)150 × 10^9/L prior to dosing on Cycle 1 Day 1

Concurrent malignancy exceptions include: Curatively treated carcinoma in situ of the cervix, good-prognosis ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast, basal- or squamous-cell skin cancer, Stage I melanoma, or low-grade, early-stage localized prostate cancer. Any previously treated early-stage non-hematological malignancy that has been in remission for at least 2 years is also permitted.
      • Patients with active gastrointestinal conditions (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulosis associated colitis, and Behçet's disease)
