To determine if the addition of midostaurin (PKC412) to Standard of Care (SOC) therapy reduces relapse in FLT3-ITD mutated AML patients receiving an allogenetic hematopoietic stem cell transplant,

Official Title

A Phase II, Randomized Trial of Standard of Care, With or Without Midostaruin to Prevent Relapse Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With FLT3-ITD Mutated Acute Myeloid Leukemia


Acute Myeloid Leukemia AML FLT3-ITD midostaurin PKC412 allogeneic hematopoeitic stem cell tranplant SCT HSCT CR1 Leukemia Leukemia, Myeloid Leukemia, Myeloid, Acute Staurosporine Midostaurin (PKC412) Standard of Care

  • Patients must have a documented FLT3 ITD mutation, determined by local laboratory for eligibility (historical tissue will be requested for central analysis confirmation)
  • Patients who have undergone allogeneic HSCT in CR1 from a matched related or matched unrelated donor. All of the following criteria must also be met:

HLA typing to include available 8/8 or 7/8 allele HLA matched donor (at A,B,C, DRB1) Single allelic mismatch allowed • Patients who received a conditioning regimen which included one of the following: Busulfan/Fludarabine (Bu/Flu) Busulfan (16 mg/kg PO or 12.8 mg/kg IV)Fludarabine (120-180 mg/m2) Fludarabine / Melphalan (Flu/Mel) Fludarabine (120-180 mg/m2)Melphalan (≤ 150 mg/m2) Busulfan/Cyclophosphamide (Bu/Cy) Busulfan (16 mg/kg PO or 12.8 mg/kg IV) Cyclophosphamide (120 mg/kg) Cyclophosphamide/Total Body Irradiation (Cy/TBI)Cyclophosphamide (120 mg/kg) TBI (1200-1420 cGy)

• Recovery of counts by day 42 and able to start midostaurin by day 60 post-HSCT (first dose of midostaurin to start no earlier than 28 days post-HSCT); ANC >1000µL, platelets≥20,000 without platelet transfusion

  • Patients with any pulmonary infiltrate including those suspected to be of infectious origin (unless resolves to ≤ Grade 1 within screening timeframe)
  • Patient requires treatment with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors or moderate or strong CYP3A4 inducers other than those required for GVH or infection prophylaxis or treatment

Pregnant or nursing (lactating) women, or women of child-bearing potential, must use highly effective methods of contraception during dosing and for 30 days after treatment completion
