least 1 month prior to screening and agreement to use such a method during study
participation and for an additional 3 months after the end of treatment
15. For males of reproductive potential: use of condoms or other methods to ensure
effective contraception with partner and for an additional 1 month after the end of
treatment administration. A condom is required to be used also by vasectomized men as
well as during intercourse with a male partner to prevent delivery of the drug via
16. Agreement to adhere to Lifestyle Considerations throughout study duration.
17. Participants who received chemotherapy must have recovered (Common Terminology
Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] Grade ≤1) from the acute effects of chemotherapy
except for residual alopecia or Grade 2 peripheral neuropathy prior to Day 1. A
washout period of at least 21 days is required between last chemotherapy dose and Day
1 (provided the patient did not receive radiotherapy).
18. Participants who received radiotherapy must have completed and fully recovered from
the acute effects of radiotherapy. A washout period of at least 14 days is required
between end of radiotherapy and Day 1.

alter the absorption of oral infigratinib (e.g., ulcerative diseases, uncontrolled
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, small bowel resection).

time of initiating study treatment), fungal infection, or detectable viral infection
(such as known human immunodeficiency virus positivity or with known active hepatitis
B or C [for example, hepatitis B surface antigen positive]. Screening is not required
4. Have a history and/or current evidence of extensive tissue calcification including,
but not limited to, the soft tissue, kidneys, intestine, myocardium, vascular system,

ECG, a total of 3 ECGs separated by at least 5 minutes should be performed. If
the average of these 3 consecutive results for QTcF is ≤470 msec, the participant
meets eligibility in this regard.
