Nilotinib vs Imatinib in Adult Patients With Philadelphia (Ph+) Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in Chronic Phase (CML-CP) (ENEST)
In this study, the efficacy and safety of nilotinib 400 mg twice daily, will be compared with imatinib 400 mg twice daily in patients with a suboptimal response to imatinib for their Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in the chronic phase (CML-CP).

|Official Title:||A Phase III Randomized, Open- Label Multi-center Study of Nilotinib Versus Imatinib in Adult Patients With Ph+ Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in Chronic Phase (CML-CP) Who Have a Suboptimal Cytogenetic Response (CyR) on Imatinib|
- Complete Cytogenetic Response Rate(CCyR) in Patients Who Had a Suboptimal Cytogenetic Response on Imatinib [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Due to early termination of the trial, the number of patients was too small and imbalanced and therefore analysis was not performed.
- Durable Complete Cytogenetic Response Rate [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Due to early termination of the trial, the number of patients was too small and imbalanced and therefore analysis was not performed.

|Experimental: Nilotinib (AMN107)||
Drug: Nilotinib (AMN107)
Administered orally as a single agent on a continuous daily schedule of 400 mg bid (2 x 200 mg twice daily) without food. Once cycle comprised of 28 days.
|Active Comparator: Imatinib||
Administered orally as a single agent on a continuous daily schedule given 400 mg bid (twice daily) with food. One cycle comprised of 28 days.
This trial was to evaluate the CCyR rate at 12 months of nilotinib therapy when compared to imatinib treatment in patients with suboptimal response to imatinib. The patients were stratified by prior duration of initial imatinib treatment, and were randomized to receive either 400 mg/twice daily of continuous nilotinib or imatinib treatment. The first stratum patients were treated with imatinib = 6 to < 12 months and having at least a minimal cytogenetic, but no partial cytogenetic response; and the second stratum patients were treated with imatinib = 12 months to < 18 months and having partial cytogenetic response (PCyR), but no CCyR.
