Abstract 1659


FLT3-internal tandem duplication (ITD) mutations occur in ∼25% of NDx AML pts and are associated with shorter response duration to standard chemotherapy (SC), higher relapse rate, and lower overall survival (OS) vs non–FLT3-ITD AML. Unlike the multi-kinase inhibitor, midostaurin, Quizartinib (Q), an oral, highly potent FLT3 inhibitor, has greater selectivity for FLT3. Early clinical studies of Q combined with SC demonstrated high clinical activity in NDx FLT3-ITD AML pts. This is an ongoing phase 3 trial of Q vs placebo (P) added to induction (IND) and consolidation (CON) chemotherapy and as maintenance therapy in NDx FLT3-ITD AML pts.

Trial design

Pts age 18-75 years with NDx FLT3-ITD AML and ECOG PS 0-2 are eligible. Key exclusion criteria: any prior treatment (including Q or any FLT3 inhibitors), investigational drug or device ≤30 days (d), immunotherapy ≤2 weeks, history of central nervous system leukemia, significant cardiovascular disease, QTcF >450 msec, active liver disease. Pts are randomized 1:1 to Q 40 mg (equivalent to 35.4 mg free base) or P administered with IND and CON chemotherapy (≤4 cycles high-dose cytarabine ± hematopoietic stem cell transplant) then as maintenance (Q 30 mg titrated to 60 mg, ≤12 28-d cycles; or P). In IND cycle 1, pts receive cytarabine 100 (or 200 mg/m2/d per updated protocol) for 7 d + anthracycline (daunorubicin 60 mg/m2/d or idarubicin 12 mg/m2/d) on days 1-3 (7 + 3). Starting day 8 of each IND and day 6 of each CON cycle, pts receive 14 d of daily Q 40 mg or P. On the second IND cycle, pts receive the 7 + 3 protocol, or investigators may substitute 5 + 2 d of cytarabine and anthracycline, per institutional standards, with Q or P starting on day 8 or day 6, respectively. The primary endpoint is event-free survival based on centrally adjudicated response assessment using local morphology results. Secondary endpoints are OS, CR, CRc (CR + CRi per latest IWG definitions). Enrollment is underway at 167 sites with a target enrollment of 536 pts at 275 sites worldwide.
