Acute Myeloid Leukemia Clinical Trial
A Phase I/II Dose Escalation and Expansion Study of BST-236 Plus Venetoclax in Patients With Unfit Newly Diagnosed AML
An open label multi centre study to assess the safety and efficacy of BST-236 in combination with venetoclax in adult patients unfit for standard therapy with newly diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Part 1 of the study will define the maximal tolerate dose of the combination treatment, while part 2 will expend the chosen dose, to assesses efficacy and safety of this combination.
All patients will receive 2 induction courses with both BST-236 and venetoclax, responding patients will then be followed with up to 3 maintenance courses with BST-236 alone. Patients will be followed for 1 year in the study and additional 1 year in post study follow-up
