Trial Information

A Phase II Study of BMS-354825 in Subjects With Accelerated Phase Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Resistant to or Intolerant of Imatinib Mesylate

Inclusion Criteria:

- Subjects with Philadelphia chromosome positive (PH+) or the fused gene BCR/ABL
positive (BCR/ABL+) accelerated phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) whose disease
has primary or acquired hematologic resistance to imatinib mesylate or who are
intolerant of imatinib mesylate.

- Subjects must have had prior exposure to imatinib. However, imatinib mesylate does
not need to be their most recent CML treatment prior to coming on this study.

- Men and women, 18 years of age or older.

- Adequate hepatic function.

- Adequate renal function.

- Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be using an adequate method of
contraception to avoid pregnancy throughout the study and for a period of least 1
month before and at least 3 months after the study in such a manner that the risk of
pregnancy is minimized.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

- Subjects who are eligible and willing to undergo transplantation during the screening

- A serious uncontrolled medical disorder or active infection that would impair the
ability of the subjects to receive protocol therapy.

- Uncontrolled or significant cardiovascular disease.

- Medications that increase bleeding risk.

- Medications that change heart rhythms.

- Dementia or altered mental status that would prohibit the understanding or rendering
of informed consent.

- History of significant bleeding disorder unrelated to CML.

- Concurrent incurable malignancy other than CML.

- Evidence of organ dysfunction or digestive dysfunction that would prevent
administration of study therapy.

- Prior therapy with dasatinib (BMS-354825).

- Prisoners or subjects who are compulsorily detained (involuntarily incarcerated) for
treatment of either a psychiatric or physical (e.g., infectious disease) illness must
not be enrolled into this study.

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Major and Overall Hematologic Response (MaHR and OHR)

Outcome Description:

MaHR=best confirmed response of complete hematologic response (CHR) or No Evidence of Leukemia (NEL). OHR=best confirmed response of MaHR or minor hematologic response (MiHR). Confirmed hematologic response=response confirmed ≥4 weeks after first documented event with no concomitant use of anagrelide or hydroxyurea. Maintaining a response=no 2 consecutive records of nonresponse at assessment. Criteria for CHR and NEL specified in Outcome Measure 2 and criteria for MiHR in Outcome Measure 4.

Outcome Time Frame:

Baseline (within 72 hours of therapy start); Cycle 1/Day 1; Weekly during treatment; at end of treatment
