This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals )
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00471497
First received: May 7, 2007
Last updated: June 27, 2017
Last verified: June 2017
  Purpose
In this study, the efficacy and safety of two nilotinib doses, 300 mg twice daily and 400 mg twice daily, will be compared with imatinib 400 mg once daily in newly diagnosed patients with Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in the chronic phase (CML-CP).

Condition Intervention Phase
Myelogenous Leukemia, Chronic Drug: nilotinib Drug: imatinib Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III Multi-center, Open-label, Randomized Study of Imatinib Versus Nilotinib in Adult Patients With Newly Diagnosed Philadelphia Chromosome Positive (Ph+) Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in Chronic Phase (CML-CP)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Molecular Response Rate (MMR) at 12 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 months ]
    Rate of MMR is defined as <= 0.1% BCR-ABL/ABL ratio by international scale (IS), measured by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RQ-PCR) which corresponds to a ≥ 3 log reduction of BCR-ABL transcript from standardized baseline. BCR-ABL = fusion gene from BCR (breakpoint cluster region gene/BCR gene product) and ABL (Abelson protooncogene)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of Durable MMR at 24 Months. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 24 months ]
  • Rate Reduction in BCR-ABL Transcript Levels in Nilotinib Treatment Arms With Imatinib at 12 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 months ]
  • Rate of Complete Cytogenetic Response (CCyR) in Nilotinib Treatment Arms With Imatinib at 12 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 months ]

Enrollment: 846
Actual Study Start Date: July 31, 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 15, 2018
Primary Completion Date: September 2, 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
