Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2b, open-label, multicenter, global study assessing the safety and efficacy of ABT-263 in subjects with B-cell CLL who have failed at least one prior fludarabine-containing regimen.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Drug: ABT-263 Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 150 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2b Monotherapy Study of ABT-263 in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory B-Cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Study Start Date : March 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2012

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1 Drug: ABT-263

Continuous dosing until disease progression using one of the following formulations:

25 mg/mL oral solution OR 50 mg/mL oral solution OR 2.0 grams/bottle powder for oral solution of 25 mg/mL when mixed OR 2.0 grams/bottle powder for oral solution of 50 mg/mL when mixed

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the safety of ABT-263 by evaluating study drug exposure, adverse events, serious adverse events, all deaths, as well as changes in laboratory determinations and vital sign parameters. [ Time Frame: monthly (at a minimum) ]
  2. Assess the objective response rate (partial response [PR] and confirmed complete response [CR]) of B-cell CLL subjects treated with ABT-263. [ Time Frame: Every 3 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the effects of ABT-263 on duration of overall response, PFS and overall survival in subjects with B-cell CLL. [ Time Frame: Every 3 months ]
  2. Assess the effects of ABT-263 on time to response, 12-month survival rate, time to disease progression (TTP), and disease control rate in subjects with B-cell CLL . [ Time Frame: Every 3 months ]
  3. Investigate the effects of ABT-263 on quality of life (FACT-Leu and EQ-5D), ECOG performance status, and biomarkers in subject with B-cell CLL. [ Time Frame: Every 3 months ]

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • >= 18 yrs of age, have B-cell CLL, failed at least 1 prior fludarabine-containing regimen.
  • Refractory to 1 fludarabine-containing regimen is defined as failure to achieve at least PR to the last fludarabine-containing regimen received, or disease progression while receiving the last fludarabine-containing regimen, or disease progression in responders (i.e., achieved a PR or CR) within 6 mos of the last cycle of the last fludarabine-containing regimen received (e.g., fludarabine monotherapy, FR, or FC) or in responders (i.e., achieved a PR or CR ) within 24 mos of the last cycle of FCR.
  • Intolerant to fludarabine is defined as discontinuation of therapy within 2 cycles due to side effects/toxicity from the last fludarabine-containing regimen.
  • ECOG score of <=1.
  • Adequate coagulation, renal, & hepatic function at Screening as follows:
