Brief Summary:

The main objective of this trial is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of BI 836826 in combination with venetoclax on the basis of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs incidence rate during the MTD evaluation period of the combination treatment and to determine the recommended Phase II dose (RP2D) of the combination.

Other objectives are to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of BI 836826 in combination with venetoclax and to further determine the safety, as well as to evaluate the efficacy of the combination by means of the Complete Response (CR) rate and Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) negativity rate.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) based on the number of patients with dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) in the MTD evaluation period [ Time Frame: up to 28 days ]

  2. Complete response (CR) defined by investigator's assessment based on response assessment at imaging time points, analysed by complete response rate [ Time Frame: up to 36 months ]
  3. Minimal residual disease (MRD) negativity based on blood and analysed by MRD negativity rate [ Time Frame: up to 36 months ]
  4. Minimal residual disease (MRD) negativity based on bone marrow and analysed by MRD negativity rate [ Time Frame: up to 36 months ]
