Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Open-Label, Single Arm, Phase 3b, Multi-Center Study Evaluating the Efficacy of Venetoclax (ABT 199) in Relapsed/Refractory Subjects With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
Actual Study Start Date : June 22, 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 10, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : April 3, 2022


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Venetoclax

Venetoclax will be administered orally once daily (QD) beginning with a dose-titration phase. The initial venetoclax dose is 20 mg QD. After 1 week of treatment at 20 mg QD, the dose will be escalated to 50 mg QD followed by subsequent increases, each after 1 week, to 100 mg QD, 200 mg QD and the maximum dose of 400 mg QD. Participants may continue to receive venetoclax for up to 2 years provided they continue to tolerate the drug, have no evidence of disease progression (based on investigator's assessment), do not have unacceptable toxicity, and do not meet any of the criteria for discontinuation.

In countries where venetoclax is not commercially available, participants who continue to derive benefit after 2 years of treatment may be able to extend their treatment for up to 2 additional years, determined on a case by case basis.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Remission Rate in Participants Not Previously Treated With BCRi Therapy [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]

    Complete remission rate is defined as the percentage of participants achieving a complete remission (CR) or complete remission with incomplete marrow recovery (CRi) as their best response assessed by the investigator based on 2008 Modified International Workshop for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia National Cancer Institute-Working Group (IWCLL NCI-WG) criteria.

    CR required all of the following:

    • Peripheral blood lymphocytes <4000/μL
    • Absence of lymphadenopathy by physical examination and computed tomography scan
    • No hepatomegaly or splenomegaly by physical examination
    • Absence of disease or constitutional symptoms (unexplained fevers >38°C, drenching night sweats, >10% weight loss in last 6 months)
    • Blood counts above the following:

      • Neutrophils >1500/μL
      • Platelets >100,000/μL
      • Hemoglobin >110 g/L
    • Bone marrow at least normocellular for age, <30% lymphocytes

    CRi was defined as participants with CR who had persistent cytopenia unrelated to CLL but related to drug toxicity.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Remission Rate in Participants Previously Treated With BCRi Therapy [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]

    Complete remission rate is defined as the percentage of participants achieving a complete remission (CR) or complete remission with incomplete marrow recovery (CRi) as their best response assessed by the investigator based on 2008 Modified International Workshop for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia National Cancer Institute-Working Group (IWCLL NCI-WG) criteria.

    CR required all of the following:

    • Peripheral blood lymphocytes <4000/μL
    • Absence of lymphadenopathy by physical examination and computed tomography scan
    • No hepatomegaly or splenomegaly by physical examination
    • Absence of disease or constitutional symptoms (unexplained fevers >38°C, drenching night sweats, >10% weight loss in last 6 months)
    • Blood counts above the following:

      • Neutrophils >1500/μL
      • Platelets >100,000/μL
      • Hemoglobin >110 g/L
    • Bone marrow at least normocellular for age, <30% lymphocytes

    CRi was defined as participants with CR who had persistent cytopenia unrelated to CLL but related to drug toxicity.


  2. Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]

    Overall response rate was defined as the percentage of participants with an overall best response of CR, CRi, nodular partial remission (nPR), or confirmed partial remission (PR) based on the 2008 Modified IWCLL NCI-WG criteria as assessed by investigator.

    CR and CRi are defined above. nPR is defined as participants with CR but for whom bone marrow nodules could be identified histologically.

    For PR at least 2 of the following must be met:

    • ≥ 50% decrease in peripheral blood lymphocyte count from the pretreatment baseline value
    • ≥ 50% reduction in lymphadenopathy
    • ≥ 50% reduction in the size of the liver and/or spleen (if abnormal prior to therapy) and at least one of the following criteria must be met:
    • Neutrophils > 1,500/μL or ≥ 50% improvement over baseline
    • Platelets > 100,000/μL or ≥ 50% improvement over baseline
    • Hemoglobin > 11.0 g/dL or ≥ 50% improvement over baseline without transfusions or exogenous growth factors.

    PR must be confirmed at least 7 weeks later.


  3. Duration of Overall Response (DoR) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]
    Duration of response is defined as the time from the date of first response (CR, CRi, nPR, or PR) to the earliest date that progressive disease (PD) is objectively documented (radiographic or clinical) or death. Duration of response was analyzed by Kaplan-Meier (K-M) methodology. If a participant was still responding their data was censored at the date of the last available disease assessment prior to the data cutoff date.

  4. Time to Progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]
    Time to progression is defined as the time from the date of first dose of venetoclax to the date of earliest PD (radiographic or clinical). Participants who did not experience disease progression were censored at the date of the last available disease assessment prior to the data cutoff date; participants with no post-baseline disease assessments were censored at the first dose date plus 1 day. Time to progression was estimated using Kaplan-Meier methodology.

  5. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]
    Progression-free survival (PFS) was defined as the time from the date of first dose of venetoclax to the date of earliest PD (radiographic or clinical) or death. Participants who did not experience disease progression or death were censored at the date of the last available disease assessment prior to the data cutoff date; participants with no post-baseline tumor assessment or clinical assessment for progression, were censored at the date of first dose plus 1 day. Progression-free survival was analyzed by Kaplan-Meier methodology.

  6. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]
    Overall survival (time to death) will be defined as the number of days from the first dose date of venetoclax to the date of death. If a participant had not died their data were censored at the date when they were last known to be alive prior to the cutoff date. Overall survival was analyzed using Kaplan-Meier methodology.

  7. Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy - Leukemia Questionnaire (FACT-Leu) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 108 ]
    The FACT-Leu is a 44-item, leukemia-specific questionnaire designed to assess patient health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and leukemia-specific symptoms.

  8. Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy - Fatigue Scale (FACIT-F) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 108 ]
    The FACIT-F questionnaire measures fatigue and its effect on functioning and daily activities. The FACIT-F has 13 items answered on a 5-point rating scale based on a 7-day recall period.

  9. EuroQoL 5 Dimension 5 Level Questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 108 ]
    Five items in the EQ-5D-5L questionnaire (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety/depression) are rated on 5 levels of severity.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) Negativity Rate [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug until the last participant completed Week 48 assessments (data cut-off date 30 June 2019); overall median time on follow-up was 23.2 months. ]
    The MRD negativity rate is defined as the percentage of participants who had MRD negative status with less than one CLL cell per 10,000 leukocytes (< 10-⁴) in peripheral blood and bone marrow. MRD was evaluated using next-generation sequencing. Per protocol, peripheral blood MRD assessments were to be collected from all participants at Week 24 and Week 48 and at the time the bone marrow assessment for confirmation of CR/CRi, and bone marrow (BM) MRD assessments were to be collected for participants undergoing a bone marrow procedure for confirmation of CR/CRi. Participants with no blood or BM MRD assessments were included in the calculation of MRD negativity rate as not having MRD negative status.
