Brief Title  ICMJE Study of Venetoclax in Combination With Decitabine in Subjects With Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Official Title  ICMJE Phase 1 Study of Venetoclax in Combination With Decitabine 10-Day Regimen in Subjects With Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Brief Summary The main purpose of this study is to learn about the safety and tolerability of an experimental drug, Venetoclax, when it is given along with Decitabine in subjects diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 1
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: Decitabine

    Decitabine will be administered intravenously at a dose of 20mg per day for 10 days during Cycle 1 (28 day cycle)

    Decitabine will be administered intravenously at a dose of 20mg per day for 10 days of Cycle 2 (28 day cycle).

    Decitabine will be administered intravenously at a dose of 20mg per day for 5 days of each 28 day maintenance cycle

  • Drug: Venetoclax
    Venetoclax administered orally on days 1-21 of cycle 1, cycle 2 and maintenance (28 day cycles). Dose levels will be assigned at time of enrollment anywhere from 100mg-400mg. Dose escalation will follow the 3+3 study design.
Study Arms  ICMJE Experimental: Treatment

Cycle 1 of Treatment will be Decitabine days 1-10 plus Venetoclax ramp up on days 1-3 followed by Venetoclax target dose on days 4-21

Cycle 2 of Treatment will be Decitabine days 1-10 plus Venetcolax target dose days 1-21

During maintenance Decitabine on days 1-5 plus Venetoclax days 1-21

  • Drug: Decitabine
  • Drug: Venetoclax
