Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is a rapidly progressing hematologic malignancy that most frequently develops in older adults. FLT3 mutations occur in approximately 30% of AML patients and are associated with aggressive disease, higher relapse rates and worse survival. Despite the approval of FLT3 inhibitors midostaurin and gilteritinib that improve the treatment of FLT3 positive patients, the prognosis of patients with relapsed or refractory disease is poor.
NMS-03592088 is a novel, potent inhibitor of FLT3, KIT and CSF1R, all relevant targets in AML. NMS-03592088 showed superior preclinical activity compared with approved FLT3 inhibitors in different FLT3-driven models. In addition, NMS-03592088 is active on FLT3 gatekeeper mutation F691L causing resistance to first generation FLT3 inhibitors.
MKIA-088-001 is a Phase I/II study of NMS-03592088 administered as single agent in relapsed or refractory AML and CMML patients. The trial is currently open for enrollment.
