Interim data from 45 evaluable patients in an open-label, dose-escalation U.S. and French Phase I trial showed that once-daily doses of oral AG-221 up to 200 mg and twice-daily doses of oral AG-221 up to 150 mg led to an overall response rate (ORR) of 56%, including 6 complete responses, 4 complete responses with incomplete platelet recovery (CRp), 4 marrow complete responses (mCR), 1 complete response with incomplete hematologic recovery (CRi) and 10 partial responses.
