A phase 1/2, first-in-human, open-label study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, and efficacy of the novel ALK inhibitor TPX-0131 in pretreated subjects with ALK+ advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The study consists of two portions: 1) Phase 1 dose escalation, and 2) Phase 2 efficacy evaluation.

Official Title

A Phase 1/2 Study of TPX-0131, A Novel Oral ALK Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor in Subjects With ALK+ Advanced or Metastatic NSCLC


Phase 1 Dose Escalation: To evaluate the overall safety profile, efficacy of TPX-0131 in pretreated subjects with ALK+ advanced or metastatic NSCLC. Phase 2 Efficacy Evaluation: To determine the safety and anti-tumor efficacy of TPX-0131 in defined cohorts of subjects with advanced or metastatic ALK+ NSCLC.
