Brief Summary:
This is a nonrandomized study of ruxolitinib in combination with a standard multi-agent chemotherapy regimen for the treatment of B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Part 1 of the study will optimize the dose of study drug (ruxolitinib) in combination with the chemotherapy regimen. Part 2 will evaluate the efficacy of combination chemotherapy and ruxolitinib at the recommended dose determined in Part 1.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Leukemia Drug: Ruxolitinib Drug: Asparaginase Erwinia Chrysanthemi Drug: Cyclophosphamide Drug: Cytarabine Drug: Dexamethasone Drug: Doxorubicin Drug: Leucovorin Calcium Drug: Mercaptopurine Drug: Methotrexate Drug: Pegaspargase Drug: Prednisone Drug: Thioguanine Drug: Vincristine Sulfate Phase 2

Expanded Access : An investigational treatment associated with this study is available outside the clinical trial.   More info ...

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 170 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2 Study of the JAK1/JAK2 Inhibitor Ruxolitinib With Chemotherapy in Children With De Novo High-Risk CRLF2-Rearranged and/or JAK Pathway-Mutant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Study Start Date : August 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date : February 2024
Estimated Study Completion Date : May 2024


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ruxolitinib in combination with chemotherapy Drug: Ruxolitinib
In Part 1, ruxolitinib will be administered at a protocol-defined starting dose in combination with chemotherapy, with dose escalation and de-escalation following the rolling 6 study design. The established recommended starting dose will be taken forward into Part 2.
Other Name: INCB018424

Drug: Asparaginase Erwinia Chrysanthemi
Drug: Cyclophosphamide
Drug: Cytarabine
Drug: Dexamethasone
Drug: Doxorubicin
Drug: Leucovorin Calcium
Drug: Mercaptopurine
Drug: Methotrexate

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1: Safety/tolerability of ruxolitinib in combination with chemotherapy as measured by adverse events (AEs), vital signs, clinical laboratory tests, and echocardiograms [ Time Frame: Part 1: AEs assessed from screening through up to 30 days after the last dose of study drug, expected to be 26 months (females) or 38 months (males) ]
  2. Part 2: Efficacy of ruxolitinib in combination with chemotherapy as measured by Event-free survival, defined as the percentage of patients alive without relapse, progression, or death at 3 years from study Day 1 [ Time Frame: Part 2: assessed at 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of the combination treatment for subjects beginning treatment at the recommended dose for Part 2, as assessed by AEs, vital signs, clinical laboratory tests, and echocardiograms [ Time Frame: AEs assessed from screening through up to 30 days after the last dose of study treatment, expected to be 26 months (females) or 38 months (males) ]
