Adding Ruxolitinib to a Combination of Dasatinib Plus Dexamethasone in Remission Induction Therapy in Newly Diagnosed Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Patients Aged 40 Years or Older

NCT02494882

Description:

The purpose of this study is to test the safety of a new combination of three oral drugs in Ph+ ALL. These drugs are dexamethasone, dasatinib, and ruxolitinib. All three drugs have been studied before in humans. This is a phase I study in which ruxolitinib dose will start low for the first patient together with dexamethasone plus dasatinib. If this dose does not cause a bad side effect, the ruxolitinib dose will slowly be made higher as new patients take part in the study. This will help the investigators find the right dose of ruxolitinib to give together with dexamethasone and dasatinib that will be used in future studies
