Brief Summary:
This is a global, Phase 3b, multicenter, open-label, single-arm study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of acalabrutinib 100 mg bid in approximately 600 participants with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Participants will be enrolled into 4 cohorts: treatment-naive (TN), relapsed/refractory (R/R), prior Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitor (BTKi) therapy, and concomitant vitamin K antagonists. Participants will remain on study treatment until completion of 48 cycles (28 days per cycle), disease progression, toxicity requiring discontinuation, withdrawal of consent, lost to follow-up, death, or study termination by the sponsor whichever occurs first. The duration of the study will be approximately 72 months from the first participant enrolled. This duration includes an estimated 24-month recruitment time and an assumed 48 cycles of study treatment (28 days per cycle); additional study time will be accrued during the follow-up period for those participants remaining on study treatment after completion of 48 cycles (the amount of time will vary by participant).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Drug: Acalabrutinib Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 3b, multicenter, open-label, single-arm study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of acalabrutinib 100 mg bid in approximately 600 participants with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Participants will be enrolled into 4 cohorts: treatment-naive (TN) (minimum of 300 participants), relapsed/refractory (R/R) (approximately 200 participants), prior bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitor (BTKi) therapy (up to 70 participants), and concomitant vitamin K antagonists (up to 30 participants). Ten participants will initially be enrolled in the concomitant vitamin K antagonist cohort in a staggered enrollment. Participants enrolled in this cohort will be monitored for adverse events (AEs) and laboratory assessments, including prothrombin time/ international normalized ratio (PT/INR). If >8 of the 10 participants enrolled demonstrate no clinically meaningful major hemorrhage as assessed in the first 6 months by a safety monitoring committee including internal and external members, up to an additional 20 participants with concomitant vitamin K antagonist therapy will be enrolled. If participants do not complete 6 months of study treatment for any reason other than clinically meaningful major hemorrhage, they may be replaced by another participant. Assessment of response and progression will be conducted by the investigator in accordance with the International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (IWCLL) 2018 criteria. Overall response assessments will be based on evaluation of physical examinations, recording of symptoms, radiologic evaluations, and hematologic evaluations. Study treatment (acalabrutinib 100 mg bid) will be administered until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, 48 cycles of study treatment, withdrawal of consent, loss to follow-up, death, or study termination by the sponsor, whichever comes first (each cycle is 28 days). In-clinic visits will occur every cycle for the first 6 cycles, and then every 3 cycles for the next 6 cycles. After 12 cycles "in-clinic visits" will occur every 6 cycles. Safety follow up visits will occur approximately 30 days from the last dose of study treatment. If a participant continues to derive benefit from treatment at the end of 48 cycles, they will continue to be provided with study treatment. This may include, but not be limited to, transition to a long-term extension trial, continuous supply in this trial (for eg in countries where regulatory approval is not obtained, or drug is not reimbursed) or switching to commercial drug as permitted by local regulations. Participants who remain in the trial after the completion of 48 cycles will be followed for disease progression, description of all subsequently administered anticancer therapies, and IWCLL indication for initiation of subsequent anticancer therapies q24w via standard practice until transition to regulatory approved off-study acalabrutinib, withdrawal of consent, lost to follow-up, death, or study termination by the sponsor. Participants who switch to off-study acalabrutinib will be considered as having completed the study and therefore will not have any additional study assessments, including the disease follow-up period. The duration of the study will be approximately 72 months from the first participant enrolled. This duration includes an estimated 24-month recruitment time and an assumed 48 cycles of study treatment (28 days per cycle).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: From screening to safety follow-up period (approximately 30 days from last dose) ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of acalabrutinib monotherapy in participants with TN or R/R CLL.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 1 year after initial dose of study drug ]
    To evaluate the investigator-assessed ORR in participants receiving acalabrutinib monotherapy.

  2. Duration of response (DOR) [ Time Frame: The time from the first objective response to the time of documented disease progression or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first within the time period to complete up to 48 cycles of treatment (each cycle is 28 days) ]
    To evaluate the investigator-assessed DOR in participants receiving acalabrutinib monotherapy.

  3. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: The interval from the start of study treatment to completion of 48 cycles (each cycle is 28 days) or the earlier of the first documentation of disease progression or death from any cause ]
    To evaluate the investigator-assessed PFS in participants receiving acalabrutinib monotherapy.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of participants with Adverse events [ Time Frame: From screening to safety follow-up period (approximately 30 days from last dose) ]
    To evaluate safety and tolerability of acalabrutinib monotherapy in participants with concomitant vitamin K antagonist.

  2. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 48 Cycles (each cycle is 28 days) or as long as participant remains on the study (maximum up to 1 year) ]
    To evaluate OS in participants receiving acalabrutinib monotherapy.

  3. Time to next treatment [ Time Frame: From the start of study treatment to safety follow-up period (approximately 30 days from last dose) ]
    To evaluate the investigator-assessed event-free survival (EFS).

  4. European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Core 30 (EORTC-QLQ-C30) [ Time Frame: Up to 48 cycles (each cycle is 28 days) ]
    To evaluate participant-reported symptoms and health-related quality of life following treatment with acalabrutinib monotherapy. EORTC QLQ-C30 scale scores range from 0 to 100. A higher score represents a higher ("better") level of functioning, or a higher ("worse") level of symptoms.

  5. Patient-Reported Outcomes version of the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (PRO-CTCAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 48 cycles (each cycle is 28 days) ]
    To evaluate participant-reported symptoms following treatment with acalabrutinib monotherapy using PRO-CTCAE. Patient-reported outcomes (PROs), an umbrella term referring to all outcomes and symptoms, are directly reported by the participant. Around 81 symptoms of the CTCAE v4 have been identified to be amenable to participant reporting. These symptoms have been converted to participant terms (e.g., CTCAE term "myalgia" converted to "aching muscles"). For several symptoms, like fatigue and pain, additional questions are asked about symptom frequency (never to almost constantly), severity (none to very severe, and interference with usual activities (not at all to very much). For this study, the following items are considered relevant and will be assessed: headache, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, rash, muscle pain, nose bleed, heart palpitations, bruising, joint pain, and constipation.
