Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

The proposal is to re-treat patients with a minimum of two years with nilotinib 2x300 mg/d resulting in total of at least three years TKI treatment who show recurrent disease after unsuccessful first or second stop after TKI treatment in or outside the EURO-SKI study. If MR4 or better is re-achieved and maintained for at least one year and MR4.5 or better is re-achieved and maintained for at least 6 months, patients will be eligible for a second stop attempt within this study. For MR4, three consecutive PCRs with MR4 or deeper should be measured within one year and for MR4.5, two PCRs during 6 months should demonstrate a MR4.5. Patients who exhibited hematological relapse after the first stop attempt will not be eligible for a second stop attempt within this study. After inclusion, 3 monthly monitoring will be performed under nilotinib treatment within the trial. Patients fulfilling the criteria mentioned above will then enter the screening phase. After verification of MR4.5, TKI treatment will be stopped and patients followed in the same manner as described in EURO-SKI (monthly PCRs for 6 months, 6-weekly PCRs 7-12 months after stopping, thereafter 3-monthly). If MMR is lost (BCR-ABL >0.1% (IS)), TKI treatment will once again be restarted; here the same TKI (nilotinib) is recommended. It is assumed that after failure of first (or second) stop a switch to treatment with 2GTKI may increase the chance of stopping a second (or third) time [Legros et al. Blood 2012; Rea et al. Blood 2014] It is expected that the rate of a successful second (or third) stop at 12 and 36 months is more than 25%.
Experimental: TKI-stop, pre-treatment with nilotinib
Treatment after unsuccessful 1st or 2nd discontinuation at least two year with nilotinib (300 mg/bid). In total, retreatment with TKI for at least 3 years before entering screening for stopping phase is warranted. Clinical monitoring every 3 months during this 2 years. Patients who re-achieved and maintained MR4 for at least 12 months and MR4.5 for at least 6 months can enter screening phase for TFR .If MR4.5 is confirmed by an validated laboratory, patient may enter stopping phase of the study. Patient not fulfilling these criteria can be screened again every 3 months until month 48. After TKI-stop hematological monitoring and quantitative PCR of BCR/ABL1 (month 1-6 after stopping: monthly; month 7-12 after stopping: every 1.5 months, thereafter once every three months, for 3 years in total. Relapse is defined as BCR-ABL1 > 0.1% on IS at a single time point (loss of MMR) In case of relapse restart of TKI. In general, the same TKI (nilotinib) as before second stop is recommended
Other: - TKI discontinuation
2nd or 3rd TKI stop after pre-treatment with nilotinib.
Drug: - nilotinib
Pre-treatment with nilotinib 300 mg/bid for 2 years
