  Purpose

This study will enroll adult de novo Ph+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients (≥18 years, ≤60 years). Induction treatment will consist of 12 weeks of Dasatinib oral administration (140 mg QD). Patients will initiate treatment with steroids 7 days prior to starting Dasatinib and will continue up to day 31. Patients will continue treatment with Dasatinib up to day 84, except for disease progression, intolerable toxicity, or withdrawal from study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective of the trial is to estimate the feasibility of a total therapy strategy in de novo adult Ph positive ALL. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary endpoint is the rate of patients alive in CHR who have completed the trial treatment according to the therapeutic strategy;


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The median value of the minimum of PCR levels achieved in each patient during the Dasatinib treatment within day +85, whenever achieved from the start of the Dasatinib. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The rate of patients who become PCR negative after Dasatinib induction. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Out of patients who become PCR negative after induction, the rate of patients who remain persistently negative during maintenance treatment with Dasatinib (without chemotherapy or allogeneic transplant). [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The median value of the minimum of PCR levels achieved in each patient after an allogeneic transplant or Clofarabine-Cyclophosphamide treatment as consolidation therapy. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The rate of patients alive in CHR who have completed the maintenance program with Dasatinib after an allogeneic transplant or two cycles of Clofarabine-Cyclophosphamide as consolidation therapy. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Disease free survival estimation starting from the date of evaluation of CHR. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Cumulative incidence of relapse estimation starting from the date of evaluation of CHR. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival estimation starting from date of inclusion. [ Time Frame: at 42 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

This study will enroll adult de novo Ph+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients (≥18 years, ≤60 years). Induction treatment will consist of 12 weeks of Dasatinib oral administration (140 mg QD). Patients will initiate treatment with steroids 7 days prior to starting Dasatinib and will continue up to day 31. Patients will continue treatment with Dasatinib up to day 84, except for disease progression, intolerable toxicity, or withdrawal from study.

Thereafter:

  • patients in hematological and molecular CR will receive a post-remissional treatment consisting of Dasatinib alone for a 6 months period
  • patients in hematological CR with persistence of molecular disease will be allografted or, if not eligible or a donor is not available, treated with 2 cycles of a Clofarabine-Cyclophosphamide schedule.

After allograft:

  • MRD negative patients (i.e. in CHR and PCR negative) will receive a 6 months Dasatinib maintenance treatment;
  • MRD positive patients (i.e. in CHR and PCR positive) will receive Dasatinib as maintenance treatment until relapse or progression.

Patients not transplanted and treated with Clofarabine/Cyclophosphamide will also receive Dasatinib as maintenance treatment until relapse or progression.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with de novo Ph+ and/or BCR/ABL+ ALL.
  • Age ≥18 years old ≤60 years.
  • No prior treatment with any anti-leukemic drugs with the exception of steroids for no more than 14 days (including the 7-day pretreatment already scheduled in the protocol).
  • WHO performance status ≤2.
  • No evidence of central nervous system (CNS) leukemia.
  • Normal serum level of potassium, total calcium corrected for serum albumin magnesium and phosphorus, or correctable with supplements.
  • ALT and AST ≤2.5 x ULN or ≤5.0 x ULN if considered due to leukemia.
  • Alkaline phosphatase ≤2.5 x ULN unless considered to leukemia.
  • Serum bilirubin ≤2 x ULN.
  • Serum creatinine ≤3 x ULN.
  • Serum amylase ≤1.5 x ULN and serum lipase ≤1.5 x ULN.
  • Normal cardiac function.
  • Written informed consent prior to any study procedures being performed. In addition, patients must be thoroughly informed about all aspects of the study, including the study visit schedule and required evaluations and all regulatory requirements for informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Impaired cardiac function, including any one of the following:

    • LVEF <45% as determined by MUGA scan or echocardiogram.
    • Complete left bundle branch block.
    • Use of a cardiac pacemaker.
    • ST depression of >1mm in 2 or more leads and/or T wave inversions in 2 or more contiguous leads.
    • Congenital long QT syndrome.
    • History of or presence of significant ventricular or atrial arrhythmia.
    • Clinically significant resting bradycardia (<50 beats per minute).
    • QTc >450 msec on screening ECG (using the QTcF formula).
    • Right bundle branch block plus left anterior hemiblock, bifascicular block.
    • Myocardial infarction within 3 months prior to starting Dasatinib.
    • Angina pectoris.
    • Other clinically significant heart disease (e.g., congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, history of labile hypertension, or history of poor compliance with an antihypertensive regimen).
  • Impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of Dasatinib (e.g., ulcerative diseases, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, or small bowel resection).
  • Use of therapeutic warfarin.
  • Acute or chronic liver or renal disease considered unrelated to leukemia.
  • Other concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical conditions (e.g., uncontrolled diabetes) that could cause unacceptable safety risks or compromise compliance with the protocol.

The medications listed in "Appendix H" have the potential to prolong the QT interval.
  • Patients who have received any antileukemic agents and treatments including steroids. for more than 14 days including 7 days pretreatment that is part of the protocol.

Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 48 hrs prior to administration of Dasatinib. Post-menopausal women must be amenorrhoeic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential.

  • Non compliant to oral medication patients.
  • Significant pleural effusion on baseline chest X-Ray (CXR) or pericardial effusion on baseline echocardiogram.
