Summary

RATIONALE: Panobinostat and imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of panobinostat when given together with imatinib in treating patients with previously treated chronic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase I Dose Escalation Study of LBH589 in Combination With Imatinib Mesylate for Patients With Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in Cytogenetic Remission With Residual Disease Detectable by Q-PCR

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Maximum tolerated dose of histone deacetylase inhibitor LBH589 in combination with imatinib mesylate

Safety and tolerability of histone deacetylase inhibitor LBH589 in combination with imatinib mesylate

Secondary outcome:

Effect of treatment with histone deacetylase inhibitor LBH589 in combination with imatinib mesylate on cytogenetic response status and BCR-Abl levels

Effect of treatment with histone deacetylase inhibitor LBH589 in combination with imatinib mesylate on residual BCR-Abl positive primitive progenitors

Detailed description: OBJECTIVES: Primary

- To determine the safety and tolerability of LBH589 given in combination with imatinib

mesylate in CML patients who are in Major Cytogenetic Remission (MCR) with residual BCR-ABL positive cells after at least 1 year of daily imatinib mesylate treatment.

- To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicity of LBH589

given in combination with imatinib mesylate in CML patients. Secondary

- To study the effect of LBH589 given in combination with imatinib mesylate on

cytogenetic response status and BCR-ABL levels in CML patients in major cytogenetic remission on imatinib mesylate treatment. Tertiary

- To study the effect of LBH589 given in combination with imatinib mesylate on residual

BCR-ABL positive primitive progenitors in CML patients in major cytogenetic remission on imatinib mesylate treatment. OUTLINE: This is dose-escalation study of panobinostat. Patients receive oral panobinostat once daily on days 1, 3 and 5; 8, 10, and 12; 15, 17, and 19; and 22, 24, and 26. Patients also receive oral imatinib mesylate once daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 21 or 28 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 1 month and then every 3 months for up to 1 year.
