Early Intervention With Acalabrutinib in Patients With High Risk CLL

NCT04660045

Description:

This study evaluates the effectiveness of acalabrutinib treatment in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) deemed at high risk for Richter's Transformation (RT). This is a single arm study. Enrolled patients will initiate therapy with acalabrutinib and will dose continuously. While on study, subjects will be monitored monthly for the first 3 months, then every three months thereafter until disease progression, discontinuation due to toxicity, death, or study completion.

Purpose

This study evaluates the effectiveness of acalabrutinib treatment in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) deemed at high risk for Richter's Transformation (RT). This is a single arm study. Enrolled patients will initiate therapy with acalabrutinib and will dose continuously. While on study, subjects will be monitored monthly for the first 3 months, then every three months thereafter until disease progression, discontinuation due to toxicity, death, or study completion.

Detailed Description

      This is a multi-center, single arm, Phase II clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness
      of acalabrutinib treatment within 6 months of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) diagnosis
      for patients with CLL deemed at high risk for Richter's Transformation (RT).

             non-hematologic malignancy if more than 5 years earlier are eligible.

          -  Subject with a history of malignancy except for non-melanoma skin cancers. Subjects
             treated with curative intent via methods of local resection and or locally targeted
             anticancer treatment and are free of malignancy for at least 5 years from treatment
             end will be allowed to enroll.
