Oncology Pipeline

For more than 50 years, Lilly has been dedicated to delivering life-changing medicines and support to people living with cancer and those who care for them. Lilly is determined to build on this heritage and continue making life better for all those affected by cancer around the world. In 2019 Lilly created Loxo Oncology at Lilly, with the goal of rapidly delivering impactful new medicines for people with cancer. Our approach centers on creating new medicines that work in early clinical development and will matter to patients.

    • Active graft vs host disease
    • Cytopenias from incomplete blood cell count recovery posttransplant or CAR-T therapy
    • Need for anticytokine therapy for toxicity from CAR-T therapy; residual symptoms of neurotoxicity grade >1 from CAR-T therapy
    • Ongoing immunosuppressive therapy
  • Known HIV positive, regardless of cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) count. Unknown or negative status eligible
  • Inability to take necessary uric acid lowering agents (ie, allopurinol, rasburicase, or febuxostat)
  • Concurrent anticancer therapy or treatment with strong cytochrome P450 3A4 inhibitors or inducers that can include antifungals
  • Use of ≥20 mg prednisone QD or equivalent dose of steroid per day, within 7 days of start of study treatment. Patients may not be on any dose of prednisone intended for antineoplastic use
  • Vaccination with a live vaccine within 28 days prior to start of study therapy
  • Major surgery within 4 weeks of planned start of study
  • Prolonged QT interval corrected using Fridericia’s formula (QTcF) >470 ms
  • Clinically significant cardiovascular disease
  • Female patient who is pregnant or lactating
  • Active second malignancy which may preclude assessment of dose-limiting toxicities
  • Clinically significant active malabsorption syndrome including surgical resection of small intestine or other condition likely to affect gastrointestinal absorption of the orally administered study drugs
  • Active hepatitis B or C
  • Evidence of other clinically significant uncontrolled condition(s) (eg, uncontrolled systemic infection [viral, bacterial, or fungal] or other clinically significant active disease process)
  • Active uncontrolled autoimmune cytopenia
  • Additional exclusion criteria for patients with AL amyloidosis (part 1: Dose Expansion)
    • Previous or current diagnosis of symptomatic MM
    • Heart failure that, in the opinion of the Investigator, is on the basis of ischemic heart disease
    • Supine systolic blood pressure <90 mmHg, or symptomatic orthostatic hypotension in the absence of volume depletion
    • N-terminal pro hormone natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) >8500 ng/L (or BNP >700 ng/L if NT-proBNP is not available by local or central testing)
  • Additional exclusion criteria for patients enrolled to part 2: LOXO-338 + pirtobrutinib
    • Prior progression or intolerance to pirtobrutinib
    • Patients requiring therapeutic anticoagulation with warfarin
    • Known hypersensitivity to any component or excipient of pirtobrutinib
    • In patients with history of myocardial infarction or congestive heart failure, documented left ventricular ejection fraction by any method of ≤45% in the 12 months prior to planned start of study treatment
    • History of uncontrolled or symptomatic arrhythmias including grade ≥3 arrhythmia on a prior BTK inhibitor
    • History of major bleeding on a prior BTK inhibitor
    • Current treatment with strong P-gp inhibitors
*
This clinical trial is being conducted in the United States.
LOXO-338 is administered PO.
Pirtobrutinib is administered PO.
§
An additional primary outcome measure for part 1 (Dose Expansion) was to determine the effect of LOXO-338 on response rates, as measured by the appropriate disease specified response criteria as appropriate to tumor type.
