Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Clinical Trial
Ibrutinib in Treating Minimal Residual Disease in Patients With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia After Front-Line Therapy
This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well ibrutinib works in treating patients with leukemia-cll/" >chronic lymphocytic leukemia who responded to initial treatment used to reduce a cancer (front-line therapy) but have residual disease. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
I. Determine the rate of minimal residual disease (MRD)-negative responses (in both blood and bone marrow) at any time during treatment with ibrutinib maintenance.
I. Median time to achieve MRD- (negative) status (in blood and in bone marrow) after initiation of ibrutinib maintenance treatment.
II. Toxicity profile of ibrutinib as maintenance therapy after frontline induction.
III. Durability of the MRD- state (determined from the time of first documentation of MRD- until the first documentation of MRD+ (positive) (or last date shown to be MRD- for a censor).
IV. Determine the number of patients who improve their remission category (i.e., upgrade clinical response achieved after the induction such as from partial response [PR] to complete response [CR]) after initiating the maintenance therapy.
V. Time to requirement of next therapy for patients who achieve confirmed MRD- vs. those who remain MRD+ disease at 48 weeks (end of 12 cycles).
VI. Progression free survival (as determined by the International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia [IWCLL] criteria) among patients who achieve confirmed MRD- vs. those who remain MRD+ disease at 48 weeks (end of 12 cycles).
I. To conduct correlative studies for further understanding of the mechanism of antitumor activity of ibrutinib in eradication of the MRD.
II. Determine the impact of ibrutinib on depression and anxiety symptoms to better understand toxicity profile of ibrutinib maintenance.
III. Determine impact of social support or lack thereof on mood symptoms in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients receiving maintenance treatment.
Patients receive ibrutinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks* for up to 36 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Note: *The last course may last up to 56 days to accommodate the study drug discontinuation visit.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3-6 months for up to 2 years.

Able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements including willing to provide blood, baseline bone marrow aspirate, and control deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples for correlative research purposes
Diagnosis of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL), confirmed by flow cytometry and as per the criteria outlined by the IWCLL/Hallek December 2008
Prior frontline therapy for B-CLL must have been discontinued >= 56 days but =< 365 days prior to registration; NOTE: Patients on supportive care therapy due to use of specific induction regimen such as antibiotics may continue on those treatments at the discretion of the treating physician
Patient must have completed a frontline induction therapy (minimum of 2 treatment cycles); NOTE: Standard therapies/therapeutic agents are defined as those listed in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for treatment of CLL; also, patients who received induction regimen as part of a clinical trial and is not necessarily mentioned in the NCCN guidelines, will also be eligible as long as the patient has completed at least 2 treatment cycles of induction regimen, achieved a clinical response (PR or CR) and is able to meet all other criteria for the study; however, patients who have previously received ibrutinib or have been randomized to ibrutinib containing arms in a clinical trial will not be eligible for this study
Patients must have a sustained clinical response (PR, nodular PR [nPR], complete clinical response [CCR], CR with incomplete marrow recovery [CRi], CR) with documented residual disease (>= 1 CLL cell per 10,000 leukocytes or >= 0.01% MRD) either in the blood, bone marrow or a lymph node >= 3.5 cm by any available techniques
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1 or 2 at registration
Absolute neutrophil count >= 1000/mm^3
Platelet count >= 30,000/mm^3
Serum creatinine =< 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
Total bilirubin =< 1.5 mg/dL or direct bilirubin =< 1.0 mg/dL for patients with Gilbert's syndrome
Serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) (aspartate aminotransferase [AST]) and serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT) (alanine aminotransferase [ALT]) =< 3.5 x ULN
Negative pregnancy test done =< 7 days prior to registration, for women of childbearing potential only
Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form
Since this study involves an investigational agent whose genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects on the developing fetus and newborn are unknown, any of the following will deem the subject ineligible for the study:
Men or women of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate contraception
Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study or confounds the ability to interpret data from the study
Use of any other experimental drug or therapy =< 28 days prior to registration on this study; NOTE: Patients on low dose prednisone (=< 10 mg) for treatment of conditions other than CLL are eligible
Patients who have received more than 1 prior therapy; NOTE: Prior therapy is defined as any single agent or combination regimen that is included as treatment for symptomatic CLL; treatment(s) given prior to the symptomatic phase of the disease (preventive strategy) will not be considered as prior induction therapy; for the purpose of a particular therapy/regimen to be counted towards the number of prior treatments a patient must have received at least 2 cycles of the induction regimen e.g., a patient who change their treatment regimen after only 1 cycle (due to toxicity or any other reason) will not be considered to have "2" prior therapies
Patients who have progressive disease or relapse (as defined by the IWCLL criteria) at or any time before registration on this study
Patients with history of any other cancer (except non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in-situ of the cervix, unless in complete remission and off therapy for that disease for > 3 years)
Patients who are already MRD- (both in the blood and the bone marrow) after frontline therapy and have lymph nodes < 3.5 cm
Concomitant use of warfarin or other vitamin K antagonists
Requires treatment with a strong cytochrome P450 modulators (cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily A [CYP3A] inhibitor and/or CYP3A inducers)
Currently active, clinically significant hepatic impairment Child-Pugh class B or C according to the Child Pugh classification
Major surgery =< 4 weeks prior to registration
Patients who have active infectious hepatitis
Patients with other diseases that in the opinion of the treating physician pose a higher risk for treatment with ibrutinib therapy including active human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and bleeding disorders
