Brief Summary:
This is a phase IIIb, multi-centre, single-arm, open-label, prospective study investigating the efficacy and safety of nilotinib as the first-line treatment for the adult patients with newly diagnosed chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML-CP) in China. Nilotinib 300 mg BID will be provided in this study. The assessment for the primary efficacy endpoint will be performed at 18 months and the rate of patients obtaining MR4.5 will be measured at this time point. Secondary endpoints include the complete hematologic response(CHR) and the rates of major molecular reactions (MMR) by 3, 6, 9,12,18 and 24 months; event free survival (EFS); overall survival (OS).

Nilotinib (Tasigna ®), capsules of 150 mg

Nilotinib 2 capsules of 150 mg, orally, twice daily

Primary Outcome Measures :

  3. Rate of CCyR (complete cytogenetic responses: bone marrow Philadelphie positive at 0 % on at least 20 metaphases) at 3, 6, 9, 12, 24 months of nilotinib. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  4. Event-free survival [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Survival since randomization without any event defined as loss of CHR, loss of PCyR or CCyR, death from any cause, progression towards accelerated phase or blast crisis.

  5. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Survival without death from any cause
