childbearing potential must use appropriate precautions to avoid pregnancy, defined as
of non-childbearing potential (ie, postmenopausal or permanently sterilized) or using
highly effective contraception with low user-dependency, for at least 3 months after
the last dose of study drug. A woman is postmenopausal if it is more than 12 months
since her last menstruation, without an alternative medical cause. Accepted methods of
permanent sterilization methods are hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy and/or
bilateral oophorectomy. Accepted methods of highly effective contraception with low

trial participant and that the vasectomized partner has received medical
assessment of the surgical success.
- Oral hormonal contraceptives are NOT permitted.
- Clinically relevant toxicity from prior systemic anticancer therapies or radiotherapy
that in the opinion of the Investigator has not resolved to Grade 1 or less prior to
- Any major surgery within 4 weeks prior to randomization. If subject received major
surgery including (curative or palliative surgery), they must have recovered
adequately from the toxicity and/or complications from the intervention prior to
- Treatment with the following prior to randomization:
- Concurrent treatment with other anticancer therapy including other chemotherapy,
immunotherapy, radiotherapy, chemo-embolization, targeted therapy, an
investigational agent or the non-approved use of a drug or device within 28 days
before the first dose of study drug.
- Hormonal anticancer therapies within 7 days of the first dose of study drug.
- Systemic, inhaled, or prescription strength topical corticosteroids within 21
days of the first dose of study drug. Short courses (≤ 5 days) for
non-cancer-related reasons are allowed if clinically required (such as
prophylaxis for CT).
- Received radiation to more than 25% of marrow-bearing areas.
- Toxicities of prior therapies (except alopecia) that have not resolved to National
Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) v5.0 ≤
- Requirement for treatment with chronic or frequently used oral corticosteroids for
medical conditions or illnesses (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, immunosuppression after
- History of severe hypersensitivity or severe reaction to either study drug.
- Peripheral neuropathy from any cause > Grade 1.
- Pregnant or lactating patients or patients expecting to conceive children within the
projected duration of the trial, starting with screening visit through 90 days after
the last dose of trial treatment.
- Human immunodeficiency virus or current chronic/active infection with hepatitis C
virus or hepatitis B virus, including:
- Patients with chronic or active hepatitis B as diagnosed by serologic tests are
excluded from the study. In equivocal cases, hepatitis B or C polymerase chain
reaction may be performed and must be negative for enrollment.
- Patient has a clinically significant uncontrolled condition(s) or which in the opinion
of the Investigator may confound the results of the trial or interfere with the
patient's participation, including but not limited to:
- Unstable angina pectoris, angioplasty, cardiac stenting, or myocardial infarction
6 months before study entry.
- Uncontrolled hypertension (sustained systolic blood pressure > 150 mmHg or
diastolic pressure > 100 mmHg despite optimal management). Patients will be
considered eligible if hypertension is treated and controlled during Screening.
- Active infection that requires parenteral antibiotics.
- Bowel obstruction or gastric outlet obstruction.
- Has known psychiatric or substance abuse disorders that would interfere with
cooperation with the requirements of the trial.

Adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancers or non-muscle invasive urothelial cancer
or other tumors curatively treated with no evidence of disease are permissible.
- Drugs with a narrow therapeutic ratio that are highly dependent on CYP3A for clearance
should be avoided. Caution should be exercised when co-administering known inhibitors
of CYP3A with relacorilant. Medicines/food known to strongly inhibit CYP3A should be
