Brief Summary:
MDS/AML with MRD and impending relapse after allogeneic stem cell transplantation and/or conventional chemotherapy

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Myeloid Leukemia in Remission Myelodysplastic Syndromes Minimal Residual Disease Drug: Pevonedistat Drug: Azacitidine Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Experimental arm: pevonedistat in combination with azacitidine Control arm: azacitidine alone

With the following modifications:

  • Patients on the azacitidine arm and still MRD+ at 3 months but without hematological relapse can cross over to the combination arm
  • Cross over into the combination arm is possible any time up to 9 months of study treatment if initially responding patients (at 3 months) on AZA monotherapy become MRD positive again
  • Maximum treatment duration of 1 year
  • Patients receive pevonedistat at 20 mg/m2 i.v. (d1,3,5, q4w); azacitidine is given at a standard dose of 75 mg/m² i.v. or s.c. (d1-7 or 1-5,8,9, q4w)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measurable residual disease (MRD) status after 3 months of treatment [ Time Frame: 3 months after start of treatment ]

    To show that pevonedistat and azacitidine are more effective compared to azacitidine alone with regard to achievement of MRD negativity after 3 months of treatment.

    MRD assessment is carried out as determination of the NPM1mut status or as CD34/CD117 chimerism analysis.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 25 months ]
    To describe and compare outcome measures between two strategies: pevonedistat and azacitidine in combination versus azacitidine alone with cross over option.

  2. Relapse Free Survival [ Time Frame: Time from randomization until hematological relapse or death from any cause (whichever comes first), assessed up to 25 Months. ]
    To describe and compare outcome measures between two strategies: pevonedistat and azacitidine in combination versus azacitidine alone with cross over option.

  3. Impact of treatment assessed by using the validated questionnaires EORTC QLQ-C30. [ Time Frame: Time from randomization until hematological relapse or death from any cause (whichever comes first) ]
    To describe and compare outcome measures between two strategies: pevonedistat and azacitidine in combination versus azacitidine alone with cross over option.

  4. Impact of treatment assessed by using the validated questionnaires EQ-5D-5L. [ Time Frame: Time from randomization until hematological relapse or death from any cause (whichever comes first), assessed up to 25 months. ]
    To describe and compare outcome measures between two strategies: pevonedistat and azacitidine in combination versus azacitidine alone with cross over option.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • AML or MDS
  • continuing first CR after conventional intensive chemotherapy OR continuing CR after alloSCT
  • Confirmed MRD positivity (assessed by central lab) as defined by:

    • NPM1mut status >1% in peripheral blood or bone marrow in NPM1 mutated patients at diagnosis or
    • Patients after allogeneic transplantation, who were NPM1 unmutated at diagnosis and have a blood or marrow CD34/CD117 chimerism <80%

Exclusion Criteria:

Compliance with major study procedures

  • Patient does not accept bone marrow sampling during screening, primary end point visit and after the treatment.
  • Patient does not accept several blood sampling during screening, treatment (up to bi-daily) and after the treatment.

Safety

  • Inadequate organ function as defined in the list below:

    • White blood cell (WBC) count > 50 Gpt/L before administration of pevonedistat on Cycle 1 Day 1
    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 1.5 Gpt/L
    • Platelets < 100 Gpt/L
    • Albumin < 2.7 g/dL
    • Creatinine clearance < 30 mL/min (Cockcroft und Gault formula)
    • Total bilirubin > 1.5xupper limit of normal (ULN) except in patients with Gilbert's syndrome. Patients with Gilbert's syndrome may be enrolled if direct bilirubin > 1.5x ULN of the direct bilirubin.
