Brief Summary:
This study aims at exploring the activity of a frontline approach based on dasatinib plus steroids administration as induction treatment, followed by the infusion of Blinatumomab, in adult Ph+ ALL.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Drug: Dasatinib Drug: Blinatumomab Phase 2

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: D-ALBA Front-Line Sequential Treatment of Adult Philadelphia Chromosome Positive (Ph+) Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) Patients With Dasatinib and the Bispecific Monoclonal Antibody Blinatumomab
Actual Study Start Date : May 31, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment

Adult Ph+ ALL (≥18 years old, with no upper age limit) patients will begin treatment with Dasatinib, 140 mg/day, from day 1 to day +84. Prednisone (PDN) will be administered from day -6 to day +0 (during which the presence of the BCR/ABL1 alteration will be established), at escalating doses up to 60 mg/m2; PDN will be continued up to day +24 and progressively tapered up to day +31.

HLA typing will be performed immediately after the diagnosis for eligible patients.

MRD will be evaluated by RT-PCR at fixed time points (days +22, +45, +57) during the induction and at day +85, the latter for molecular response evaluation.

Drug: Dasatinib
Adult Ph+ ALL (≥18 years old, with no upper age limit) patients will begin treatment with Dasatinib, 140 mg/day, from day 1 to day +84.

Drug: Blinatumomab

Upon induction:

patients in CHR will receive Blinatumomab at a dose of 15 µg/m²/day as continuous intravenous infusion (CIVI) at a constant flow rate for four weeks, followed by a two-week infusion-free interval, defined as one treatment cycle. At least 2 cycles should be administered, up to a maximum of 5 cycles, if deemed necessary.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients who achieve Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) negativity upon treatment [ Time Frame: After 11 months from study entry ]
    In particular, after 2 cycles of blinatumomab. Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) negativity is intended as Complete Molecular Remission (CMR)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients completing the 2 cycles of blinatumomab and alive in first complete hematologic remission (CHR) [ Time Frame: From day +85 at 12 months ]
  2. Number of patients at Complete Molecular Response (CMR) [ Time Frame: At day +22, +45, +57 and +85 from study entry ]
  3. Number of months of the CMR [ Time Frame: At 12 and 24 months ]
  4. Number of patients in Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: At 12 and 24 months ]
  5. Number of grade >3 adverse events [ Time Frame: At 12 and 24 months ]
