- Included patients:
- Active sites:
8(of 20)12 sites are pending
A prospective, multicenter, phase-II trial of venetoclax plus acalabrutinib in patients who have relapsed after first line venetoclax + anti-CD20 mAb treatment for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL or SLL)
- Prospective Phase II study
- Monitoring Type:
- Site Evaluation Visit
- To evaluate efficacy of acalabrutinib/venetoclax (AV) in terms of uMRD response in BM after 26 cycles of treatment in patients with CLL previously treated with venetoclax and anti-CD20 mAb.
- To evaluate the efficacy of AV.
- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of AV.
- To evaluate prognostic parameters for efficacy
- To evaluate value of different techniques for MRD testing.
- To evaluate the impact on immunological function of AV.
- To evaluate grading for hematological toxicity according to International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (IWCLL)19 by assessing lab values.
- To evaluate quality of life (QoL) with AV.
- To asses impact on venetoclax pharmacokinetics (PK) in combination with acalabrutinib
- Inclusion Criteria:
- Documented CLL or SLL requiring treatment according to IWCLL criteria (appendix A) after at least (clinical) partial response as best response after the following initial study treatment: venetoclax-rituximab in HOVON 140/GAIA or venetoclax-obinutuzumab in HOVON 139/GIVE or HOVON 140/GAIA;
- WHO/ECOG performance status 0-3 (appendix C), stage 3 only if attributable to CLL
- Age at least 18 years;
- Adequate BM function defined as:
- Hemoglobin >5 mmol/l or Hb > 8 g/dL
- Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >0.75 x 109/L (750/μL), unless directly attributable to CLL infiltration of the BM, proven by BM biopsy
- Platelet count >30 x 109/L (30,000/μL) without transfusion and irrespective whether it is attributable to CLL infiltration in the BM;
- Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) (MDRD) or estimated creatinine clearance (CrCl ≥ 30ml/min (Cockcroft-Gault appendix E); Please note: in case eGFR or CrCl is <50ml/min the patient needs to be considered high risk for TLS
- Adequate liver function as indicated:
- Serum aspartate transaminase (ASAT) and alanine transaminase (ALAT) ≤ 3.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN);
- Bilirubin ≤1.5 x ULN (unless bilirubin rise is due to Gilbert's syndrome or of nonhepatic origin);
- Prothrombin time (PT)/International normal ratio (INR) <1.5 x ULN and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) <1.5 x ULN;
- Negative serological testing for hepatitis B virus (HBV) (Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) negative and hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc) negative) and hepatitis C virus (hepatitis C antibody). Subjects who are positive for anti-HBc or hepatitis C antibody may be included if they have a negative PCR within 6 weeks before enrollment. Those who are PCR positive will be excluded; Please note: For patients positive for anti-HBc HBV-DNA PCR has to be repeated every month until 12 months after last dose of study treatment.
- Patient is able and willing to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements;
- Patient is capable of giving informed consent;
- Written informed consent.
- Exclusion Criteria:

- Patient with a history of confirmed progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML);
- Malignancies other than CLL currently requiring systemic therapy or not treated in curative intention or showing signs of progression after curative treatment;
- Known allergy to xanthine oxidase inhibitors and/or rasburicase;
- History of drug-specific hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis to any study drug (including active product or excipient components);
- Active bleeding or history of bleeding diathesis (e.g. hemophilia or von Willebrand disease);
- Active fungal, bacterial, and/or viral infection that requires systemic therapy; Please note: active controlled as well as chronic/recurrent infections are at risk of reactivation/infection during treatment;
- Concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical condition (e.g. uncontrolled: infection, auto-immune hemolysis, immune thrombocytopenia, diabetes, hypertension, hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism etc.);
- Patient known to be HIV-positive;
- Patient requiring treatment with a strong cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A inhibitor/inducer (see appendix J) or anticoagulant therapy with warfarin or phenoprocoumon or other vitamin K antagonists; Please note: Patients being treated with DOACs apixaban, edoxaban or rivaroxaban can be included, but must be properly informed about the potential risk of bleeding under treatment with acalabrutinib. (see appendix J)
