  2. Presence of FLT3-ITD and/or D835 mutation(s)
  3. Subjects must be primary refractory or relapsed to 1st line intensive treatment for AML or refractory or relapsed after second line of treatment for AML
  4. Age ≥ 18 years and ≤ 75 years
  5. Adequate hepatic function
  6. Adequate renal functions
  7. ECOG performance status ≤ 3

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Known clinically active central nervous system(CNS) leukemia
  2. Severe liver disease
  3. Known, active infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV)
