Study of Nilotinib as First Line Treatment in Philadelphia Chromosome Positive(Ph+) Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in Chronic Phase (CML-CP)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals ) Identifier:
First received: January 4, 2011
Last updated: April 20, 2017
Last verified: April 2017
This study is designed to investigate the molecular and cytogenetic effects and safety profile of nilotinib in the treatment of early chronic phase of Ph+ CML among different risk groups of patients and to compare patients with high Socal risk score with patients having intermediate and low Socal risk score.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia
Drug: Tasigna
Phase 2

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

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of major molecular response (MMR) by 12 months and comparison of major molecular response (MMR) rates by 12 months between high sokal risk patients and low&intermediate sokal risk patients [ Time Frame: 3 monthly intervals until 12 month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) by 6 and 12 months [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
  • Rate of molecular response at 3 monthly basis [ Time Frame: 3 monthly intervals ]
  • Rate of hematologic response [ Time Frame: 3 monthly intervals ]
  • Number of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: Every visit ]
  • Time and duration of major molecular response (MMR) [ Time Frame: 3 monthly intervals ]

Enrollment: 112
Actual Study Start Date: January 25, 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 31, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 31, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Nilotinib Drug: Tasigna


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0, 1, or 2
  • First cytogenetic diagnosis of CML-CP with cytogenetic confirmation of Philadelphia chromosome of (9;22) translocations within 6 months. Standard conventional cytogenetic analysis must be performed.
  • Previously untreated for CML, except for hydroxyurea and/or anagrelide (except imatinib treatment for max. 31 days long)
  • Adequate end organ function with following laboratory criteria: total bilirubin < 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN); alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) < 2.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN); creatinine < 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN); serum amylase and lipase ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN); alkaline phosphatase ≤ 2.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) unless considered tumor related
  • Serum potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus levels are equal or above the lower limit of normal prior to the first dose of study medication

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitor(s) prior to study (in emergent cases where the patient requires disease management while awaiting study start, commercial supplies of imatinib at any dose may be prescribed to the patient but for no longer than 31 days in duration)
  • Known cytopathologically confirmed Central Nervous System CNS infiltration
  • Impaired cardiac function
  • Severe or uncontrolled medical conditions (i.e. uncontrolled diabetes, active or uncontrolled infection)
  • Acute or chronic liver, pancreatic or severe renal disease considered unrelated to disease
  • Patients with another primary malignancy except if the other primary malignancy is neither currently clinically significant or requiring active intervention
  • History of significant congenital or acquired bleeding disorder unrelated to cancer
  • Previous radiotherapy to ≥25% of the bone marrow
  • Impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of study drug (e.g., ulcerative disease, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, small bowel resection, or gastric bypass surgery)
  • Use of therapeutic coumarin derivatives (i.e. warfarin, acenocoumarol, phenprocoumon)
  • Patients actively receiving therapy with strong Cytochrome P450 3A4 isoenzyme (CYP3A4) inhibitors (e.g, erythromycin, ketoconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole, clarithromycin, telithromycin, ritonavir, mibefradil)
  • Patients actively receiving therapy with medications that have the potential to prolong the QT interval and the treatment cannot be either discontinued or switched to a different medication prior to starting study drug
