Brief Summary:

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if giving the drug venetoclax with ibrutinib can help to control the disease in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL). The safety of this combination treatment will also be studied.

This is an investigational study. Ibrutinib is FDA approved and commercially available for the treatment of CLL/SLL. Venetoclax is FDA approved for some patients with CLL whose disease has come back after 1 or more previous treatments. The use of venetoclax in combination with ibrutinib is considered investigational.

The study doctor can describe how the study drugs are designed to work.

Up to 45 participants will be enrolled in this study. All will take part at MD Anderson.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must have a diagnosis of CLL/CLL and EITHER Have high-risk cytogenetic features or molecular features, defined as: del(17p), del(11q), mutated TP53, complex metaphase karyotype (defined as >/=3 unrelated chromosomal abnormalities, present in at least 2 metaphases on conventional, stimulated cytogenetic analysis) OR Have developed a BTK or PLCG2 mutation, detected by sequencing and have not developed disease progression during ibrutinib therapy as defined by IWCLL criteria (Appendix 1) OR B2M has not normalized after 1y ibrutinib therapy or is elevated at the screening *** Note: some patients treated with ibrutinib may no longer have detectable FISH, karyotypic or molecular abnormalities after 12 months of therapy. These patients will be eligible if they fulfill the above criteria on a bone marrow biopsy or peripheral blood specimen taken within the 3 months prior to starting ibrutinib or at some time during their ibrutinib therapy and analyzed at a CLIA-accredited laboratory.
  2. Patients must have received at least 12 months of ibrutinib therapy and have measurable CLL by at least one of the following: Absolute monoclonal lymphocyte count > 4000/microL; OR - Measurable lymph nodes with at least one node >1.5 cm in diameter on CT; OR - Bone marrow with >/= 30% lymphocytes on aspirate differential; OR - Detectable CLL cells using a standardized flow cytometry assay for minimal residual disease
  3. Age 18 years or older.
  4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status </=2.
  5. Patients must have adequate renal and hepatic function: i) Serum bilirubin </=1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or </=3 x ULN for patients with Gilbert's disease ii) Serum creatinine clearance of >/= 50ml/min (calculated or measured) iv) ALT and AST </=3.0 x ULN, unless clearly due to disease involvement.
  6. Adequate bone marrow function: i) Platelet count of greater than 20,000/µl, with no platelet transfusion in prior 2 weeks ii) ANC >/=500/µl in the absence of growth factor support unless due to compromised bone marrow production from CLL, indicated by >/=80% CLL in marrow. iii) Hemoglobin >/=8mg/dL.
  7. INR <1.5
  8. Adequate cardiac function, as assessed by: - Absence of uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia. - Echocardiogram demonstrating LVEF >/=35%. - NYHA functional class </=2.
  9. Ability to provide informed consent and adhere to the required follow-up.
  10. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine beta human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) pregnancy test result within 7 days prior to the first dose of study drugs and must agree to use use both a highly effective method of birth control (eg, implants, injectables, combined oral contraceptives, some intrauterine devices [IUDs], complete abstinence, or sterilized partner) and a barrier method (eg., condoms, vaginal ring, sponge, etc) during the period of therapy and for 30 days after the last dose of study drug. Women of non- childbearing potential are those who are postmenopausal (defined as absence of menses for >/=1 year) or who have had a bilateral tubal ligation or hysterectomy. Men who have partners of childbearing potential must agree to use effective contraception, defined above, during the study and for 30 days following the last dose of study drug.
  11. Patients or their legally authorized representative must provide written informed consent.

  9. Active hepatitis C, defined by the detection of hepatitis C RNA in plasma by PCR.
  10. Active, uncontrolled autoimmune phenomenon (autoimmune hemolytic anemia or immune thrombocytopenia) requiring steroid therapy >20mg prednisone daily or equivalent, within 7 days of starting venetoclax.
