Study Start Date
Primary Completion Date
Resource links provided by the National Library of Medicine
Safety evaluation assessed by dose limiting toxicity within first cycle of 28 day treatment and AEs within 3 cycles [ Time Frame: every first 28 days ]
Pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of single and multiple doses [ Time Frame: day 1 and 15 of cycle 1,day 6, 8, 10, 12, 22 and 28 of cycle 1, day 15 of cycle 2 ]
Secondary Outcome Measures
Anti-leukemic activity within 3 cycles of 28 days treatment [ Time Frame: Day 28 cycle 1, 2 and 3, at the time of disease progression, and at the time of study completion ]
Bone marrow and/or blood assessments to detect the presence of Bcr-Abl transcript and mutational analysis of Bcr-Abl before, during and after therapy. [ Time Frame: Day 28 cycle 1, 2 and 3, at the time of disease progression, and at the time of study comp ]

Impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of AMN107 (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 tumor (e.g., hepatitis, cirrhosis, renal insufficiency, etc.)
Other concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical conditions (e.g., uncontrolled diabetes, active or uncontrolled infection) that could cause unacceptable safety risks or compromise compliance with the protocol
Treatment with any hematopoietic colony-stimulating growth factors (e.g., G-CSF) ≤ 1 week prior to starting study drug.
Patients who are currently receiving treatment with any of the medications listed in (cf. Post-text suppl. 5) that cannot be either discontinued or switched to a different medication prior to starting study drug. The medications listed in (cf. Post-text suppl. 5) have the potential to prolong the Q-T interval.
Patients who have received chemotherapy ≤ 1 week or who are within 5 half-lives of their last dose chemotherapy (6 weeks for nitrosurea or mitomycin-C) prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy. Hydroxyurea is permitted at the investigator's discretion prior to enrollment.
Patients who have received Glivec® ≤ 1 week or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.
Patients who have received immunotherapy ≤ 1 week prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.
Patients who have received any investigational drug (excluding STI571/Glivec) ≤ 4 weeks or investigational cytotoxic agent within 1 week (or who are within 5 half-lives of a previous investigational cytotoxic agent) prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.
Patients who have received wide field radiotherapy ≤ 4 week or limited field radiation for palliation ≤ 2 week prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.
Patients who have undergone major surgery ≤ 2 weeks prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.
Patients who are pregnant or breast feeding, or adults of reproductive potential not employing an effective method of birth control. (Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 48 hrs prior to administration of AMN107). Post-menopausal women must be amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential. Male and female patients must agree to employ an effective barrier method of birth control throughout the study and for up to 3 months following discontinuation of study drug
Known diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (HIV testing is not mandatory)
Patients with a history of another primary malignancy that is currently clinically significant or currently requires active intervention.
Patients unwilling or unable to comply with the protocol
Other protocol-defined inclusion and exclusion criteria may apply.
