Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Leukaemia, Lymphoblastic Drug: chlorambucil, tablets Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This study is an open-label, single arm, phase II study of chlorambucil in subjects with previously untreated CLL.

The primary objective is to evaluate the response to chlorambucil in Japanese subjects with previously untreated CLL.

Secondary objectives are to evaluate efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of chlorambucil in Japanese subjects.

Chlorambucil is an effective and well-tolerated chemotherapeutic agent currently approved for treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in the United States of America (US), European Union (EU) and other countries globally but not in Japan. Other more aggressive treatment options such as a combination of fludarabine (F) and cyclophosphamide are available, but are associated with significantly greater toxicities. The addition of ofatumumab to chlorambucil offers potentially a more effective therapy, with limited additional toxicity.

Study OMB110911 has been conducted mainly in the US and EU to evaluate progression-free survival (PFS) and overall response (OR) in subjects with previously untreated CLL with ofatumumab in combination with chlorambucil versus (vs.) chlorambucil monotherapy.

The objective of this study is to evaluate overall response of chlorambucil in Japanese subjects with previously untreated CLL.

Par. who were alive and had not progressed at the time of analysis or if a progression event or death occurred after extensive lost-to-follow-up time or if new anti-cancer therapy was started were censored at the date of the last visit with adequate assessment.

  3. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment until death (up to Week 61.1) ]
    Overall survival is defined as time from the start of treatment until death due to any cause. Participants who had not died were censored at the date of last contact.

  4. Time to Response, as Assessed by the IRC [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment until the first response (CR/PR) (up to Week 61.1) ]
    Time to response is defined as time from the start of treatment until the first response (CR/PR). Time to Response analyses was restricted to the subgroup of the population who experienced an overall response (CR/ nPR/CRi/PR) during the study. CR (all the criteria at least 2 months after last treatment): no lymphadenopathy (Ly) > 1.5 cm/ hepatomegaly/ splenomegaly/ constitutional symptoms; neutrophils >1500 per microliter (µL), platelets (PL) >100,000/µL, hemoglobin (Hb) >11 grams/deciliter (g/dL), lymphocytes (LC) <4000/µL, bone marrow (BM) sample must be normocellular for age, <30% LC, no lymphoid nodule.

  6. Time to Next Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) Therapy [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment until the first administration of the next CLL treatment (up to Week 61.1) ]
    Time to next CLL therapy is defined as the time from start of treatment until the first administration of the next CLL treatment other than chlorambucil administrations scheduled in this study. Time to next CLL therapy was restricted to the subgroup of the population who receive a next CLL therapy after experiencing disease progression.

    ECOG PS is a scale to assess disease progression, extent to which disease affects the daily living abilities and determines appropriate treatment and prognosis. It is scored on a scale of 0 to 5 as, 0 (fully active), 1 (restricted in physically strenuous activity but ambulatory and able to carry out work of a light or sedentary nature), 2 (ambulatory and capable of all self cares but unable to carry out any work activities, Up and about > 50% of waking hours), 3 (capable of only limited self cares, confined to bed or chair > 50% of waking hours), 4 (completely disabled, cannot carry on any self cares, totally confined to bed or chair), 5 (death). Improvement is defined as decrease from baseline by at least one step on the ECOG performance status scale (yes/no). Baseline was last pre-dose assessment performed on Cycle 1 Day 1(C1 D1). When C1 D1 was missing, the last assessment performed prior to pre-dose C1 D1 was used. It was performed on Day 1 of each cycle and follow-up (FU).

  8. Number of Participants With no B-symptoms and With at Least One B-symptom Over Time [ Time Frame: Baseline, C2-D29, C3-D57, C4-D85, C5-D113, C6-D141, C7-D169, C8-D197, C9-D225, FU 1-PDFU 1, FU 85-PDFU 85, and FU 169-PDFU 169 ]
    The number of participants with no B-symptoms (no night sweat, no weight loss, no fever and no extreme fatigue) and the number of participants with at least one of the B-symptoms are summarized by assessment time. The presence of the B-symptoms was assessed at Baseline, Day 1 of each treatment cycle and follow-up (FU). Baseline was the last pre-dose assessment performed at C1 D1.

  9. Number of Participants With Any Adverse Events (AE) or Serious Adverse Events (SAE) [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment up to Week 61.1 ]
    An AE is defined as any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. A SAE is any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose results in death, is life-threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect or is associated with protocol specified liver injury and impaired liver function or is any protocol specific AEs.

Non-hematologic AEs were graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.03 (NCI CTCAE V4.03): Grade 0, none; Grade 1, mild; Grade 2, moderate; Grade 3, severe or medically significant; Grade 4, life-threatening consequences; Grade 5, death related to AE

  11. Number of Participants With at Least One Grade 3/Grade 4 Adverse Event of Infection or Myelosuppression (Anemia, Neutropenia, and Thrombocytopenia) [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment up to Week 61.1 ]
    Number of participants with a Grade 3 or Grade 4 adverse event of infection or myelosuppression (anemia, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia) are presented. Myelosuppression is defined as the decrease in the ability of the bone marrow to produce blood cells. AEs were graded according to NCI common terminology criteria for adverse events (CTCAE) grade, version 3.0 (1, mild; 2, moderate; 3, severe; 4, life-threatening/disabling; 5, death).

  12. Change From Baseline in the Immunoglobulin(Ig) Antibodies IgA, IgG, and IgM [ Time Frame: Baseline, FU 1-PDFU 1, FU 85-PDFU 85, and FU 169-PDFU 169 ]
    Immunoglobulins, or antibodies, are large proteins used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign particles such as bacteria and viruses. Their normal blood levels indicate proper immune status. Low levels indicate immuno-suppression. IgA, IgG, and IgM were measured in the blood samples of the participants.Peripheral samples were collected for the analysis of IgA, IgG, and IgM at Baseline and 28 days after Day 1 of the last treatment cycle (FU 1-PDFU 1) for all participants, and 168 days after day of FU 1-PDFU 1 for participants with CR, PR, and SD. Baseline was the last pre-dose assessment performed on Cycle 1-Day 1. The the last assessment performed prior to pre-dose Cycle 1-Day 1 was used if Cycle 1-Day 1 was missing. Change from Baseline was calculated as the post-Baseline value minus the Baseline value.

  13. Number of Participants With Positive Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment up to Week 61.1 ]
    MRD refers to the small number of leukemic cells that remain in the participant during treatment or after treatment at the time the participant achieved a confirmed CR and in whom bone marrow test was performed. A bone marrow sample was examined by flow cytometry (Cluster of differentiation [CD]5, CD19, CD20, and CD23). MRD positive is defined as more than one CLL cell per 10000 leukocytes.
