AIM4CML (CABL001AUS04) = Asciminib monotherapy for patients with CML-CP with and without T315I mutation

Scientific title

Other trial ID


What is the purpose of the study

This is a study of the safety and efficacy asciminib in CML-CP patients without T315I mutation who have been treated with at least 2 prior TKIs and CML-CP patients with the T315I mutation who have been treated with at least 1 prior TKI.

What will happen during the study

The study consists of three periods: screening and baseline for up to 21 days, treatment with asciminib tablets for up to 72 weeks and a safety follow up period for 30 days.

Patients with CML-CP without T315I mutation will be randomly assigned to either group A or B. Patients with the T315I mutation will be enrolled in group C. During the treatment period, group A will receive aciminib 40 mg twice a day, group B will receive 80 mg once a day and group C will receive 200 mg twice a day.

Key inclusion criteria

This study includes male or female patients who:

  • are aged 18 years or older
  • have been diagnosed with CML in chronic phase (CML-CP)
  • meet the laboratory values specified in the study protocol
  • have an Eastern Co-Operative Oncology Group (ECOG) status of 0, 1 or 2
  • have had mutation analysis testing performed 6 months before study entry
  • have shown failure (as adapted from the 2020 ELN Recommendations) or are intolant to the most recent TKI therapy at the time of screening

Patients without the T315I mutation will have received at least 2 tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI)
Patients with the T315I mutation will have received 1TKI before study entry.

Key exclusion criteria

This study does not include patients who:

  • have a known second chronic phase of CML after previous progression to advanced phase (AP) or blast crisis (BC)
  • have undergone hematopeietic stem cell transplantation
