Study title

DANTE (CAMN107AIT15) = A study of full treatment-free remission in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia treated with nilotinib

Scientific title

A Phase II, Single-arm, Multicenter Study of Full Treatment-free Remission in Patients With Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in Chronic Phase Treated With Nilotinib in First-line Therapy Who Have Achieved a Sustained, Deep Molecular Response for at Least 1 Year (EudraCT 2018-002898-21, ClinicalTrials.gov NCT03874858)

Indication and most important inclusion criteria

This study includes male or female patients 18 years and older with CML in chronic phase who have been receiving first line treatment with nilotinib at 300 mg twice daily for at least 3 calendar years. At study entry, an ongoing treatment at a dose of ≥400 mg per day is allowed.

Patients can be considered for inclusion if they have had sustained molecular remission (MR4 or better with BCR-ABL results of no more than 0.01% on the international scale (IS) in the last 4 real time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RQ-PCR) tests which were done at least 3 months but no more than 6 months apart.

To be eligible for inclusion, patients must also have acceptable laboratory values at screening and Eastern Co-Operative Oncology Group (ECOG) status of 0, 1 or 2.

Additional criteria may apply.

Short description of intervention

This study is will evaluate the rate of full treatment-free molecular remission at week 96 in CML-CP patients treated with nilotinib at half the standard dose (300 mg once daily) during a consolidation period of 12 months, followed by complete therapy cessation.

The study consists of 4 phases: screening, 48-week nilotinib consolidation phase, 96-week treatment-free remission (TFR) phase and follow up phase.

Patient who lose MMR at any time during the study will be restarted on nilotinib treatment at 300 mg twice daily.
