    a. Subjects must have disease that has relapsed or is refractory to 2 or more prior regimens and in need of treatment due to progressive disease

  • Presence of measurable disease defined per the 2008 International workshop on CLL guidelines, or by 2014 Lugano criteria for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (does not apply for AML subjects)
  • Adequate hematologic parameters unless clearly due to the disease under study
  • Adequate renal and hepatic function, per laboratory reference range at screening

Exclusion Criteria:

  • For CLL subjects: only known histological transformation to an aggressive lymphoma
  • For AML subjects:

    1. Acute promyelocytic leukemia
    2. Peripheral blast count > 25 × 10 9/L
  • Known central nervous system involvement
  • Significant cardiovascular disease
  • Significant screening ECG abnormalities
  • Subjects who require warfarin, anti-cancer therapeutics or investigational agents
  • Evidence of an ongoing systemic bacterial, fungal, or viral infection (including upper respiratory tract infections) at the time of start of voruciclib therapy
  • Receipt of an allogeneic transplant within 6 months or an autologous transplant within the preceding 3 months; evidence of ongoing graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)
  • Prior therapy with a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK9) inhibitor
  • Ongoing immunosuppressive treatment at the time of the start of voruciclib therapy, including systemic or enteric corticosteroids except as follows:

    1. Prior to the start of voruciclib therapy, subjects may be using systemic corticosteroids (≤20 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent), topical, or inhaled corticosteroids
    2. During study therapy, subjects may use systemic, topical, or enteric corticosteroids, if needed
