chorionic gonadotrophin (β-hCG) pregnancy test at screening and negative urine
pregnancy test at Cycle 1 Day 1 prior to the first dose of study drug.

7. The patient is capable of understanding and complying with the protocol and has signed
the informed consent document. A signed informed consent form must be obtained before
any study-specific procedures are performed.
8. At least 1 measurable lesion according to modified RECIST Version 1.1 (non-nodal
lesions must be ≥1.0 cm in the long axis or ≥double the slide thickness in the long
axis) within 21 days prior to the first dose of study drug.
9. Adequate organ function and bone marrow reserve as indicated by the following
laboratory assessments performed at screening.
- Absolute neutrophil count ≥1000/uL
- Hemoglobin ≥8 g/dL
- Platelet count ≥75,000/uL
- Total bilirubin ≤1.5 x the upper limit of normal (ULN)
- Aspartate transaminase or alanine transaminase ≤3 x ULN (≤5x ULN in the presence
of hepatic metastases)
- Serum creatinine ≤1.5 x ULN or creatinine clearance ≥50 mL/min based on either
urine collection or Cockcroft Gault estimation.
- Prothrombin time (PT) or international normalized ratio (INR) or partial
thromboplastin time ≤1.5 x ULN. Patients on a stable, maintenance regimen of
anticoagulant therapy for at least 30 days prior to study drug administration may
have PT/INR measurements >1.5 x ULN if, in the opinion of the Investigator, the
patient is suitable for the study. An adequate rationale must be provided to the
Sponsor prior to randomization.
10. Resolution of all toxicities from prior therapy to ≤Grade 1 (or baseline) within 1
week prior to the first dose of study drug (excluding alopecia and ≤Grade 3 clinically
asymptomatic lipase, amylase, and creatine phosphokinase laboratory abnormalities).
1. Treatment with anticancer therapy, including investigational therapy, or
investigational procedures within 14 days or 5 x the half-life (whichever is longer)
prior to the first dose of study drug. For prior biological therapies, eg, monoclonal
antibodies with a half-life longer than 3 days, the interval must be at least 28 days
prior to the first dose of study drug.
2. Prior treatment with DCC-2618
3. Prior or concurrent malignancy whose natural history or treatment have the potential
to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of DCC-2618. Patients receiving
adjuvant cancer treatment are not eligible if those medications are potentially active
against GIST or excluded per protocol.
4. Patient has known active central nervous system metastases.
5. New York Heart Association class II - IV heart disease, active ischemia or any other
uncontrolled cardiac condition such as angina pectoris, clinically significant cardiac
arrhythmia requiring therapy, uncontrolled hypertension or congestive heart failure.
6. Arterial thrombotic or embolic events such as cerebrovascular accident (including
ischemic attacks) or hemoptysis within 6 months before the first dose of study drug.
7. Venous thrombotic events (eg, deep vein thrombosis) or pulmonary arterial events (eg,
pulmonary embolism) within 3 months before the first dose of study drug. Patients with
venous thrombotic events ≥3 months before the first dose of study drug on stable
anticoagulation therapy are eligible.
8. 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) demonstrating QT interval corrected by Fridericia's
formula >450 ms in males or >470 ms in females at screening or history of long QT
interval corrected syndrome.
9. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <50% at screening.
10. Use of proton-pump inhibitors within 4 days prior to the first dose of study drug.
Other medications that increase gastric pH, ie, histamine H2 receptor antagonists and
antacids may be taken provided they are not administered within 2 hours before or
after administration of study drug.
11. Use of strong or moderate inhibitors and inducers of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4,
including certain herbal medications (eg, St. John's Wort) and consumption of
grapefruit or grapefruit juice within 14 days or 5 x the half-life (whichever is
longer) prior to the first dose of study drug.
12. Use of known substrates or inhibitors of breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP)
transporters within 14 days or 5 x the half-life (whichever is longer) prior to the
first dose of study drug.
13. Major surgeries (eg, abdominal laparotomy) within 4 weeks of the first dose of study
drug. Following major surgeries, >4 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug, all
surgical wounds must be healed and free of infection or dehiscence.
14. Any other clinically significant comorbidities, such as uncontrolled pulmonary
disease, active infection, or any other condition, which in the judgment of the
Investigator, could compromise compliance with the protocol, interfere with
interpretation of the study results, or predispose the patient to safety risks.
15. Known human immunodeficiency virus or hepatitis C infection only if the patient is
taking medications that are excluded per protocol, active hepatitis B, or active
hepatitis C infection.
16. If female, the patient is pregnant or lactating.
17. Known allergy or hypersensitivity to any component of the investigational drug
product. Patients with a history of Stevens-Johnson syndrome on a prior TKI are
18. Gastrointestinal abnormalities including but not limited to:
- inability to take oral medication
- malabsorption syndromes
- requirement for intravenous alimentation
19. Any active bleeding excluding hemorrhoidal or gum bleeding.
