The maximum tolerated dose of SAR245409 (voxtalisib), a pan-class I phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor, was determined in a phase 1 dose-escalation study in advanced solid tumors. We report safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics and preliminary efficacy of SAR245409 capsules 50 mg twice daily in an expansion cohort of 16 patients with relapsed/refractory lymphoma. The most common treatment-related adverse events (AEs) were nausea (31.3%) and diarrhea (25.0%). The most common grade 3/4 treatment-related AE was increased alanine aminotransferase (12.5%). PK results were consistent with solid tumors, confirming a relatively short steady-state half-life (mean 4.61 h). Among 12 evaluable patients, one complete response and two partial responses were achieved in patients with and without PI3K/mTOR pathway alterations. In a patient with mantle cell lymphoma achieving PR, SAR245409 was associated with significant inhibition of PI3K/mTOR and extracellular signal-related kinase (ERK) pathways. Preliminary efficacy warrants further evaluation of SAR245409 in lymphoma.
