Standard of Care +/- Midostaurin to Prevent Relapse Post Stem Cell Transplant in Patients With FLT3-ITD Mutated AML (RADIUS)

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)
Verified March 2017 by Novartis
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals ) Identifier:
First received: March 25, 2013
Last updated: March 21, 2017
Last verified: March 2017
To determine if the addition of midostaurin (PKC412) to Standard of Care (SOC) therapy reduces relapse in FLT3-ITD mutated AML patients receiving an allogenetic hematopoietic stem cell transplant,

Condition Intervention Phase
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Drug: Midostaurin (PKC412)
Other: Standard of Care
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Phase II, Randomized Trial of Standard of Care, With or Without Midostaruin to Prevent Relapse Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With FLT3-ITD Mutated Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Relapse Free Survival (RFS) [ Time Frame: 18 months from date of transplant ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease Free Survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: for at least 24 months from date of transplant or study completion ]
  • Non-Relapse Mortality (NRM) [ Time Frame: for at least 24 months from date of transplant or study completion ]
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: for at least 24 months from date of transplant or study completion ]
  • FLT3-ITD mutation status centrally in archived material from diagnosis (if available) including mutant:wild type ratio [ Time Frame: upto 24 months from date of transplannt or at study completion ]
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The assessment of safety will be based mainly on the frequency of Adverse Events (AEs), on the number of laboratory values summarized by CTCAE grades and non-relapse mortality(NRM). The assessment of tolerability will be based on whether midostaurin can be administered at a daily dose of 50mg twice daily at least 80% of the time to 50% or more of patients during the first 100 days after allogeneic HSCT

  • Plasma Pharmacokinetics (PK) of midostaurin and the metabolites: CGP62221 and CGP52421: Pre-dose levels [ Time Frame: Pre-dose on days 1 and 15 of Cycle 1, on day 1 of Cycles 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 ]
    Pre-dose levels (Cmin) will be directly determined from raw plasma concentration-time data (units ng/ml)

  • Plasma Pharmacokinetics (PK) of midostaurin and the metabolites: CGP62221 and CGP52421: Pre-dose levels [ Time Frame: Pre-dose collection two weeks following initiation of strong CYP3A4 inhibitors ]
    Pre-dose levels (Cmin) will be directly determined from raw plasma concentration-time data (units ng/ml)

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Actual Study Start Date: February 6, 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 31, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 31, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Standard of Care (SOC) with Midostaurin
Patients will receive standard of care in the post SCT setting in addition to Midostaurin 50mg twice a day for 12 months (cycles).
Drug: Midostaurin (PKC412)
Midostaurin (PKC412) 50mg twice a day for 28 days of each cycle. Patients will be treated for 12 cycles.
Other Name: PKC412, Midostaurin
Active Comparator: Standard of Care (SOC)
Patients will receive standard of care alone in the post SCT setting
Other: Standard of Care
Standard of Care is not defined per protocol. The investigator will prescribe based on the commonly used medications given in the post SCT setting.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years   (Adult)

  • Patients must have a documented FLT3 ITD mutation, determined by local laboratory for eligibility (historical tissue will be requested for central analysis confirmation)
  • Patients who have undergone allogeneic HSCT in CR1 from a matched related or matched unrelated donor. All of the following criteria must also be met:

HLA typing to include available 8/8 or 7/8 allele HLA matched donor (at A,B,C, DRB1) Single allelic mismatch allowed • Patients who received a conditioning regimen which included one of the following: Busulfan/Fludarabine (Bu/Flu) Busulfan (16 mg/kg PO or 12.8 mg/kg IV) Fludarabine (120-180 mg/m2) Fludarabine / Melphalan (Flu/Mel) Fludarabine (120-180 mg/m2) Melphalan (≤ 150 mg/m2) Busulfan/Cyclophosphamide (Bu/Cy) Busulfan (16 mg/kg PO or 12.8 mg/kg IV) Cyclophosphamide (120 mg/kg) Cyclophosphamide/Total Body Irradiation (Cy/TBI) Cyclophosphamide (120 mg/kg) TBI (1200-1420 cGy)
