The purpose of this trial is to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, biologic activity, and pharmacokinetics of AMN107 in six groups of patients with one of the following conditions:

Relapsed/refractory Ph+ Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) (arm 1)

Group A - Imatinib failure only (arms 2, 3 and 4)

  • imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML - Chronic Phase (CP)
  • imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML - Accelerated Phase (AP)
  • imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML - Blast Crisis (BC)

Group B - Imatinib and other TKI failure (arms 2, 3 and 4)

  • imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML - Chronic Phase (CP)
  • imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML - Accelerated Phase (AP)
  • imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML - Blast Crisis (BC)

Hypereosinophilic syndrome/chronic eosinophilic leukemia (HES/CEL) (arm 5)

Systemic mastocytosis (Sm) (arm 6)

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (Philadelphia Chromosome Positive) Hypereosinophilic Syndrome Systemic Mastocytosis Drug: Nilotinib Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase IA/II Multicenter, Dose-escalation Study of Oral AMN107 on a Continuous Daily Dosing Schedule in Adult Patients With Imatinib-resistant/Intolerant CML in Chronic or Accelerated Phase or Blast Crisis, Relapsed/Refractory Ph+ ALL, and Other Hematologic Malignancies.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • • To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) of AMN107 as a single agent when administered as an oral once-daily and twice daily dose to adult patients with imatinib-resistant CML (phase l) [ Time Frame: study duration ]
  • • To characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of AMN107 in serum and, where samples are available, in tumor cells and normal hematopoietic cells. (phase l) [ Time Frame: duration of study ]
  • • To evaluate the efficacy and safety of AMN107 in patients with imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML-BC, imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML-AP and imatinib-resistant or intolerant CML-CP. (phase ll) [ Time Frame: duration of study ]
  • • To evaluate safety and preliminary anticancer activity of AMN107 in relapsed/refractory patients with Ph+ ALL, HES/CEL and SM. (phase ll) [ Time Frame: duration of study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess changes during and after therapy in malignant cells taken from the bone marrow and/or blood.(phase ll) [ Time Frame: study duration ]
  • To evaluate the population pharmacokinetics of AMN107 (all arms of the study) (phase ll) [ Time Frame: study duration ]
  • To examine whether individual genetic variation in genes relating to drug metabolism, CML and the drug pathway confer differential response to AMN107 (phase ll) [ Time Frame: study duration ]
  • To identify gene expression patterns in tumor cells that are associated with treatment response to AMN107 or that correlate with the severity or progression of CML. (phase ll) [ Time Frame: study duration ]

Inclusion Criteria:

Main inclusion criteria include:
