Having a large clinical trial portfolio means giving patients treatment options often not available anywhere else, and years before they become the standard of care.

    Primary Endpoints & Objectives
    • PET/CT CR/Peripheral blood MRD negative rate

    Secondary Endpoints
    • Progressionfree survival at 36 months
    • Toxicity rates (incidence of Grade 3/4 infections, renal and neurologic toxicities, cumulative dose of cytarabine & acalabrutinib, dose reduction, and treatment discontinuation due to toxicity)
    • Objective response rate (ORR)
    • Overall survival at 36 months
    • Mobilization failure rate (defined as a yield less than 2x10^6 CD34+ stem cells/kg with a maximum of 4 courses of apheresis)
    • To compare PET/CT negative rate between the three arms
    • To evaluate the association between baseline PET quantitative assessment (qPET) and MRD status at EOT
    • To evaluate the association between the change of qPET parameters from baseline to EOT and MRD, and compare this association across all 3 arms
    • To determine the incremental prognostic value of baseline qPET to standard risk markers (MIPI) in predicting MRD status at EOT
    • To determine the prognostic value of baseline, interim and EOT PET in predicting PFS
