Early Access Program (EAP) for Ibrutinib in Participants With Relapsed or Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to provide early access to Ibrutinib treatment for participants with relapsed or refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and collect additional safety data while the medication is not commercially available.
Condition or disease
B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Drug: PCI-32765 (Ibrutinib)
This is an open-label (all people know the identity of the intervention), multi-center (when more than one hospital or medical school team work on a medical research study) early access program (EAP) study. The study will be conducted in 2 phases: a Screening Phase (approximately 30 days prior to administration of first dose) and a Program Drug Phase (Day 1 up to 30 Days after last dose of study drug). Enrolled participants will receive 420 milligram (mg) oral ibrutinib once daily on a 28-day cycle until disease progression, occurrence of unacceptable toxicity, no longer achieving clinical benefit, or the end of program. Treatment will be continuous (without interruption) and self-administered. Disease evaluations will be conducted according to local standard of care as clinically indicated. Participant's safety will be monitored throughout the study. All enrolled and on-going participants in the program will continue to receive ibrutinib by the EAP until marketing approval or 6 months after this date.
