Acute Myeloid Leukemia Clinical Trial

Decitabine and Midostaurin in Treating Older Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Summary

This phase 2 study evaluates the sequential combination of decitabine then midostaurin for the treatment of newly-diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in older patients.

Full Description

Treatment with decitabine, a cytidine analog, then midostaurin, a multi-target protein kinase inhibitor (PKI), may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Newly-diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) per the World Health Organization [WHO] 2008 classification [except t (15; 17)], including:

De novo AML
Secondary AML
Secondary AML arising from previously-diagnosed myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) treated with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) methyltransferase inhibitor (DNMTi) (ie, decitabine or azacitidine)
FLT3-ITD mutation confirmed in bone marrow aspirate
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤ 2
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
Serum bilirubin ≤ 2.5 ULN
Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 mg/dL and/or creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min
Ejection fraction ≥ 50% by echocardiogram
Unwillingness or inability to receive conventional chemotherapy
Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
Ability to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements
Life expectancy > 2 months

Exclusion Criteria:

Receiving concomitant treatment with other anti-neoplastic agents (EXCEPTION: hydroxyurea). Prior treatment with DNMTi therapy (ie, decitabine or azacitidine) for MDS is allowed
Received anti-neoplastic treatment within 4 weeks prior to enrollment (EXCEPTION: hydroxyurea)
Received any surgical procedure, excluding central venous catheter placement or other minor procedures (eg, skin biopsy) within 14 days of study day 1
Received any investigational agent within 4 weeks prior to enrollment
Previous or current history of a myeloproliferative disease
Known active central nervous system (CNS) malignancy
Any other known disease (except carcinoma in-situ), concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical condition which could compromise participation in the study (eg, uncontrolled diabetes; cardiovascular disease including congestive heart failure; myocardial infarction within 6 months with poorly controlled hypertension; chronic renal disease; active uncontrolled infection)
Active opportunistic infection or treatment for opportunistic infection within 4 weeks of first day of study drug dosing
Known confirmed diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or active viral hepatitis
Known impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of midostaurin
History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to midostaurin and/or decitabine

Impaired cardiac function including any of the following:

Screening electrocardiogram (ECG) with a corrected QT interval (QTc) > 450 msec
Bradycardia defined as heart rate (HR) < 50 beats per minute (bpm)
Right bundle branch block + left anterior hemiblock (bifascicular block)
Patients with myocardial infarction or unstable angina < 3 months prior to starting study drug
Congestive heart failure (CHF) New York (NY) Heart Association class 3 or 4
Inability to swallow or absorb drug
Other medical or psychiatric illness or organ dysfunction or laboratory abnormality which in the opinion of the investigator would compromise the patient's safety or interfere with data interpretation
Unwillingness or inability to comply with the protocol
Pregnant
nursing (lactating)

Women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, UNLESS they are using highly effective methods of contraception during dosing and for 3 months after midostaurin medication; highly effective contraception methods as follows:

Total abstinence, when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject [periodic abstinence (eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception]
Female sterilization (surgical bilateral oophorectomy with or without hysterectomy; or tubal ligation at least six weeks before taking study treatment). In case of oophorectomy alone, reproductive status must be confirmed by follow-up hormone level assessment
Male sterilization, at least 6 months prior to screening (for female subjects on the study, the vasectomized male partner should be the sole partner for that subject)

Combination of any two of the following (a+b or a+c, or b+c):

Use of oral, injected or implanted hormonal methods of contraception or other forms of hormonal contraception that have comparable efficacy (failure rate < 1%), eg, hormone vaginal ring or transdermal hormone contraception. For oral contraception, women should have been stable on the same pill for a minimum of 3 months before taking study treatment
Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)
Barrier methods of contraception: Condom or Occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/vaginal suppository
