The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of HQP1351 in patients with chronic
myeloid leukemia in chronic phase (CML-CP) who are resistant and/or intolerant to first- and
second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors. The efficacy of HQP1351 is determined by
evaluating the subjects' event free survival (EFS).
This is a phase 2, randomized, open label, pivotal study to evaluate the efficacy and safety
of HQP1351 in CML CP patients who are resistant and/or intolerant to first- and
second-generation TKIs in China. A total of 141 CML CP patients will be included in this
study. After screening, eligible subjects will be randomized by 2:1 ratio to enter HQP1351
therapy cohort and best available therapy (BAT) cohort. When the subjects in the two cohorts
reach EFS assessment, they can crossover to contralateral cohort if the investigator and
Sponsor think they could be clinically benefited. During treatment, each subject will be
assessed regularly for hematological, cytogenetic and molecular responses. At the same time,
safety information also will be evaluated.
1. Male or non-pregnant, non-lactating female patients who are 18 years of age or older.
2. CML-CP patients with positive Ph chromosome or BCR-ABL fusion genes.
3. Resistance and intolerance of first- and second-generation TKIs: defined as resistance
or intolerance to imatinib, nilotinib, and dasatinib.
4. Ability to understand and willingness to sign a written informed consent form. The
consent form must be signed by the patient prior to any study specific procedures.

- Platelet count ≥ 75×10^9/L.
- Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5×upper limit of normal (ULN) or 24 hours calculated
creatinine clearance ≥ 50mL/min when serum creatinine >1.5×ULN.
- Serum albumin ≥ 3.0 g/dL.

- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 x ULN.
- Amylase≤1.5×ULN. Lipase≤1.5×ULN.
8. Cardiac function index: ejection fraction (EF) > 50%, pulmonary arterial systolic
pressure (PASP) ≤50 mmHg.
9. QT interval corrected on electrocardiogram (ECG) evaluation: QTc≤450ms in males or
≤470ms in females.
10. Males and females of childbearing potential and their partners voluntarily take
contraceptive measures that the researchers believe are effective within 120 days from
the signing of the informed consent to the last use of the research drug, or confirm
that sterilization has been performed (at least one month before screening).
11. Willingness and ability to comply with study procedures and follow-up examination.
1. Received cytotoxic chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 28 days prior to the first
administration, interferon or cytarabine or antitumor effect Chinese herbal medicine
or Chinese patent medicine within 14 days prior to the first administration, or
targeted BCR-ABL1 TKI within 7 days prior to the first administration, or hydroxyurea
or anagrelide within 24 hours after the first administration, or adverse events
(except alopecia) caused by previous treatment and have not recovered.
2. The patients who received any other investigating drugs within 14 days prior to first
3. For patients with CML-CP, if they have progressed to AP or BP, they cannot be enrolled
after treatment with CML-CP.
4. Patients who are currently receiving treatment with a medication that has the
potential to interact with research drug.
5. Have previously been treated with ponatinib or HQP1351 (or drugs of similar
6. Absorption disorder syndrome or other diseases affecting oral drug absorption.
7. Have any history of heart or vascular disease, such as hypertension (systolic blood
pressure (HBP) > 140mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure > 90mmHg), or take
medications that are known to cause QT interval prolongation. The patients with well
controlled HBP can be included.
8. Pulmonary systolic pressure (PSP) of echocardiography is more than 50 mmHg, or there
is clinical symptom related to pulmonary hypertension.
9. Have a history of serious cardiovascular diseases during the previous treatment of
chronic myeloid leukemia with TKI, including myocardial infarction, unstable angina
pectoris, severe arrhythmia and congestive heart failure.
10. Underwent autologous or allogeneic stem cell transplant.
11. CML-CP patient currently diagnosed as Complete cytogenetic response (CCyR).
12. Have diseases with abnormal bleeding and coagulation function, or have a bleeding
disorder unrelated to CML within 3 months before first dose of study drug.
13. Underwent major surgery (except minor surgical procedures, such as placement or bone
marrow biopsy) with 14 days prior to the first dose of study drug.
14. Require concurrent treatment with immunosuppressive agents, other than corticosteroids
prescribed for a short course of therapy (It is defined as a daily dose of
corticosteroids less than 30 mg prednisone or the same amount of other corticosteroids
within 7 days).
15. Have active nervous system (CNS) disease as evidence by cytology or pathology. In the
absence of clinical CNS disease, lumbar puncture is not required.
16. History of another primary malignancies.
17. Active symptomatic infection.
18. Known to be allergic to study drug ingredients or their analogues.

the safety of the research drug.
