Geron Corporation, declared the dosing of the first patient in a Phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate imetelstat in patients with myelofibrosis (MF). This clinical trial, also referred to as the IMbarkTM study, is being conducted by Janssen Biotech, Inc. (Janssen), under the terms of the exclusive worldwide imetelstat license and partnership agreement between the companies.

The purpose of the Phase 2 clinical trial is to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of two dose levels of single-agent imetelstat in patients with MF. The trial is designed to enroll about 200 patients (about 100 patients per dosing arm) with DIPSS intermediate-2 or high risk MF who have relapsed after or are refractory to Janus Kinase (JAK) inhibitor treatment. At the time of enrollment, patients must have measurable splenomegaly and symptoms of MF. Patients will be assigned randomly on a blinded basis on a 1:1 ratio to one of two dosing arms – 9.4 mg/kg every three weeks or 4.7 mg/kg every three weeks. Dose reductions for adverse events are allowed and will follow protocol-specified algorithms. An interim review of data from the trial is planned after about 20 patients per arm have been randomized and followed for at least 12 weeks, in order to assess the adequacy of one or both of the initial dosing arms. As a result of this interim review, one or both dosing arms could continue as planned, be stopped or modified, or alternative doses could be selected.

Secondary efficacy endpoints comprise the number of patients achieving complete remission (CR) or partial remission (PR), clinical improvement (CI), and anemia, spleen and symptom responses as assessed using the modified 2013 International Working Group-Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Research and Treatment (IWG-MRT) criteria. These secondary endpoints will be assessed at the time of the primary efficacy analysis. Exploratory endpoints comprise cytogenetic and molecular responses, in addition to leukemia-free survival.

Safety outcomes will be monitored throughout the trial and will comprise improved data collection and reporting for adverse events of interest, counting hepatobiliary-associated laboratory findings and hepatic adverse events.

Geron Corporation, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, focuses on the development of telomerase inhibitor, imetelstat, for treating hematologic myeloid malignancies.
