ArmIntervention/Treatment
Experimental: Nilotinib

Drug: Nilotinib
Other Names:
  • AMN107
  • Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Safety evaluation assessed by dose limiting toxicity within first cycle of 28 day treatment and AEs within 3 cycles [every first 28 days]

    2. Pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of single and multiple doses [day 1 and 15 of cycle 1,day 6, 8, 10, 12, 22 and 28 of cycle 1, day 15 of cycle 2]

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Anti-leukemic activity within 3 cycles of 28 days treatment [Day 28 cycle 1, 2 and 3, at the time of disease progression, and at the time of study completion]

    2. Bone marrow and/or blood assessments to detect the presence of Bcr-Abl transcript and mutational analysis of Bcr-Abl before, during and after therapy. [Day 28 cycle 1, 2 and 3, at the time of disease progression, and at the time of study comp]

    Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
    No
    Inclusion Criteria:
    • Diagnosed as Ph+ ALL who are either relapsed after or refractory to standard therapy

    • Diagnosed as CML in blast crisis or accelerated phase or chronic phase who are resistant or intolerant to imatinib

    • Performance status is normal or ambulatory and capable of all self-care Exclusion Criteria

    • A history of significant or serious uncontrolled cardiovascular disease

    • Impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of nilotinib

    • Patients who are pregnant or breast feeding, or adults of reproductive potential not employing an effective method of birth control

    Exclusion Criteria:
    • Cytopathologically confirmed CNS infiltration NB: in absence of suspicion of CNS involvement, lumbar puncture is not required

    • Impaired cardiac function, including any one of the following

    • LVEF < 45% as determined by echocardiogram

    • Complete left bundle branch block

    • Use of a cardiac pacemaker

    • ST depression of > 1mm in 2 or more leads and/or T-wave inversions in 2 or more contiguous leads

    • Congenital long QT syndrome

    • History of or presence of significant ventricular or atrial tachyarrhythmias

    • Clinically significant resting bradycardia (< 50 beats per minute)

    • QTc > 480 msec on screening ECG (using the QTcF formula)

    • Right bundle branch block plus left anterior hemiblock, bifascicular block

    • Myocardial infarction within 3 months prior to starting AMN107

    • Uncontrolled angina pectoris

    • Other clinically significant heart disease (e.g., congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, history of labile hypertension, or history of poor compliance with an antihypertensive regimen)

    • Impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of AMN107 (e.g. ulcerative diseases, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, or small bowel resection)

    • Use of therapeutic warfarin

    • Acute or chronic liver or renal disease considered unrelated to tumor (e.g., hepatitis, cirrhosis, renal insufficiency, etc.)

    • Other concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical conditions (e.g., uncontrolled diabetes, active or uncontrolled infection) that could cause unacceptable safety risks or compromise compliance with the protocol

    • Treatment with any hematopoietic colony-stimulating growth factors (e.g., G-CSF) ≤ 1 week prior to starting study drug.

    • Patients who are currently receiving treatment with any of the medications listed in (cf. Post-text suppl. 5) that cannot be either discontinued or switched to a different medication prior to starting study drug. The medications listed in (cf. Post-text suppl. 5) have the potential to prolong the Q-T interval.

    • Patients who have received chemotherapy ≤ 1 week or who are within 5 half-lives of their last dose chemotherapy (6 weeks for nitrosurea or mitomycin-C) prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy. Hydroxyurea is permitted at the investigator's discretion prior to enrollment.

    • Patients who have received Glivec® ≤ 1 week or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.

    • Patients who have received immunotherapy ≤ 1 week prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.

    • Patients who have received any investigational drug (excluding STI571/Glivec) ≤ 4 weeks or investigational cytotoxic agent within 1 week (or who are within 5 half-lives of a previous investigational cytotoxic agent) prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.

    • Patients who have received wide field radiotherapy ≤ 4 week or limited field radiation for palliation ≤ 2 week prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.

    • Patients who have undergone major surgery ≤ 2 weeks prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy.

    • Patients who are pregnant or breast feeding, or adults of reproductive potential not employing an effective method of birth control. (Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 48 hrs prior to administration of AMN107). Post-menopausal women must be amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential. Male and female patients must agree to employ an effective barrier method of birth control throughout the study and for up to 3 months following discontinuation of study drug

    • Known diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (HIV testing is not mandatory)

    • Patients with a history of another primary malignancy that is currently clinically significant or currently requires active intervention.

    • Patients unwilling or unable to comply with the protocol

    Other protocol-defined inclusion and exclusion criteria may apply.
