  1. SUB-TYPE OF MDS: Patients with MDS or CMML who have relapsed from or are refractory to previous therapy
  2. SEVERITY OF MDS: Intermediate, High or Very High Risk
  3. NAME OF DRUG: KRT-232
  4. Aims and benefits: This Phase Ib/2 study that investigates the safety and effectiveness of KRT-232 when taken alone and in combination with Low-dose Cytarabine or Decitabine in patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) including AML secondary to myeloproliferative disorders.
  5. Primary outcome: To determine the recommended dose of KRT-232 as well as its safety and tolerability. KRT-232 targets MDM2 thus preventing it from inhibiting p53. P53 has a role in arresting the tumour cell cycle and in promoting programmed death of tumour cells.
  6. Secondary outcome: To determine response rates.

  1. Basic inclusion criteria:
    • Patients with relapsed/refractory AML or AML secondary to myeloproliferative neoplasm.
  2. Basic exclusion criteria:
    • Patients who are TP53 mutation positive.
    • Prior treatment with an MDM2 antagonist therapy.
    • Stem cell transplant within 3 months or active graft versus host disease.
    • CNS involvement with AML.
  3. Trial sites/locations and name of physician in charge of trial (none are currently recruiting):
