Study Description

Brief Summary

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of venetoclax in combination with azacitidine to improve Relapse Free Survival (RFS) in AML patients compared to Best Supportive Care (BSC) when given as maintenance therapy following allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT).

This study will have 2 parts: Part 1 (Dose Confirmation), which may include participants who are greater than or equal to 18 years old; Part 2 (Randomization) which may include participants who are greater than or equal to 12 years old. During Part 1, recommended Phase 3 dose of venetoclax in combination with azacitidine will be determined and during Part 2, the efficacy and safety of venetoclax with azacitidine (Part 2 Arm A) will be compared with BSC (Part 2 Arm B).

Arms and Interventions

Experimental: Part 1: Venetoclax + Azacitidine (AZA) + Best Supportive Care

Participants will be administered various doses and dose regiments of venetoclax and AZA. Venetoclax will be administered once daily (QD) (Days 1-28) for up to 24 cycles, AZA QD on Days 1-5 of each 28-day cycle for up to 6 cycles and best supportive care (BSC) for 24 cycles (each cycle = 28 days)

Drug: Venetoclax
Tablet; Oral
Other Names:
  • ABT-199
  • GDC-0199
  • Drug: Azacitidine
    Subcutaneous (SC) or intravenous (IV) injection

    Other: Best Supportive Care (BSC)
    BSC is the best supportive care, without AML directed therapy, determined per the investigator and institutional guidelines.

    Experimental: Part 2: Arm A - Venetoclax + Azacitidine (AZA) + BSC

    Participants will be administered with venetoclax and AZA at a dose level determined in Part 1 in addition to best supportive care (when required). Venetoclax will be administered once daily (QD) (Days 1-28) for up to 24 cycles, AZA QD on Days 1-5 of each 28-day cycle for up to 6 cycles and best supportive care (BSC) for 24 cycles (each cycle = 28 days).

    Drug: Venetoclax
    Tablet; Oral
    Other Names:
  • ABT-199
  • GDC-0199
  • Drug: Azacitidine
    Subcutaneous (SC) or intravenous (IV) injection

    Other: Best Supportive Care (BSC)
    BSC is the best supportive care, without AML directed therapy, determined per the investigator and institutional guidelines.

    Experimental: Part 2: Arm B - Best Supportive Care (BSC)

    Participants will receive treatment as prescribed by their physician according to the BSC for up to 24 cycles (1 cycle = 28 days)

    Other: Best Supportive Care (BSC)
    BSC is the best supportive care, without AML directed therapy, determined per the investigator and institutional guidelines.

    Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Number of Participants With Dose-Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) Following Administration of Venetoclax and Azacitidine (Part 1) [Upto the first treatment cycle (28 days)]

      DLTs are any of the hematologic, nonhematologic toxicities, adverse events (AEs) occurring following administration of venetoclax and AZA as described in the protocol and evaluated by the Investigator and the sponsor.

    2. Relapse-Free Survival (RFS) (Part 2) [Up to 39 months after the first participant is randomized]

      RFS is defined as the number of days from randomization to the date of relapse or the date of death from any cause, whichever comes first.

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Overall Survival (OS) (Part 2) [Up to 45 months after the first participant is randomized]

      OS is defined as the number of days from the date of randomization to the date of death from any cause.

    2. Graft-versus-Host Disease (GvHD)-free, Relapse Free Survival (GRFS) (Part 2) [Up to 39 months after the first participant is randomized]

      GRFS is defined as number of days from the date of randomization to occurrence of disease relapse OR occurrence or worsening of GvHD OR death from any cause.

    3. Time to Deterioration in Global Health Status (GHS)/Quality of Life (QoL) in Adult Participants (Part 2) [Up to 39 months after the first participant is randomized]

      Time to deterioration defined as number of days from randomization to either deterioration of >= 5 points based on the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) version 3 or death due to any cause.

    4. Graft-versus-Host Disease (GvHD) rate (Part 2) [Up to 39 months after the first participant is randomized]

      GvHD rate is defined as grade 2 or higher for acute graft-versus-host disease (aGvHD) and moderate/severe for chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGvHD) assessed by investigator

    5. Change From Randomization in Fatigue in Adult Participants (Part 2) [Up to 39 months after the first participant is randomized]

      Fatigue is measured as Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) using Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Cancer Fatigue SF 7a.

    6. Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) Response Rate in Participants With MRD >= 10^-3 at Randomization (Part 2) [Up to 39 months after the first participant is randomized]

      MRD conversion rate is defined as percentage of participants who convert to MRD < 10^-3 after initiation of treatment.
