A Phase 3 Randomized Trial of Inotuzumab Ozogamicin (NSC#: 772518) for Newly Diagnosed High-Risk B-ALL; Risk-Adapted Post-Induction Therapy for High-Risk B-ALL, Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia, and Disseminated B-LLy
- Study HIC#:2000026862
- Last Updated:07/15/2021
This phase III trial studies whether inotuzumab ozogamicin added to post-induction chemotherapy for patients with High-Risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL) improves outcomes. This trial also studies the outcomes of patients with mixed phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL), and B-lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LLy) when treated with ALL therapy without inotuzumab ozogamicin. Inotuzumab ozogamicin is a monoclonal antibody, called inotuzumab, linked to a type of chemotherapy called calicheamicin. Inotuzumab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers calicheamicin to kill them. Other drugs used in the chemotherapy regimen, such as cyclophosphamide, cytarabine, dexamethasone, doxorubicin, daunorubicin, methotrexate, leucovorin, mercaptopurine, prednisone, thioguanine, vincristine, and pegaspargase work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. This trial will also study the outcomes of patients with mixed phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL) and disseminated B lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LLy) when treated with high-risk ALL chemotherapy.
The overall goal of this study is to understand if adding inotuzumab ozogamicin to standard of care chemotherapy maintains or improves outcomes in High Risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (HR B-ALL). The first part of the study includes the first two phases of therapy: Induction and Consolidation. This part will collect information on the leukemia, as well as the effects of the initial treatment, in order to classify patients into post-consolidation treatment groups. On the second part of this study, patients will receive the remainder of the chemotherapy cycles (interim maintenance I, delayed intensification, interim maintenance II, maintenance), with some patients randomized to receive inotuzumab. Other aims of this study include investigating whether treating both males and females with the same duration of chemotherapy maintains outcomes for males who have previously been treated for an additional year compared to girls, as well as to evaluate the best ways to help patients adhere to oral chemotherapy regimens. Finally, this study will be the first to track the outcomes of subjects with disseminated B-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B LLy) or Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia (MPAL) when treated with B-ALL chemotherapy.

Trial Purpose and Description
Primary Outcome Measures :
- Improvement in 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) after adding 2 blocks of inotuzumab ozogamicin (InO) to Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster (mBFM) chemotherapy in children and young adults with High-Risk (HR) B-ALL [ Time Frame: From end of consolidation (EOC) to first event (relapse, second malignant neoplasm, remission death) or date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ]Power calculations are based on detecting an improvement in post consolidation DFS with the addition of InO to standard therapy for high risk (HR) B-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). All survival time analyses assume a Weibull distribution with shape parameter of 0.6 (based on historical data). Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and standard errors and confidence intervals estimated by the method of Peto. Estimation of treatment effect will be done using intent-to-treat (ITT) analysis based on randomized group.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
- 5-year DFS for favorable risk subset of NCI HR B-ALL (HR favorable) when treated with mBFM chemotherapy with a single high-dose methotrexate (HD MTX) Interim Maintenance (IM) phase and treatment duration of 2 years from the start of IM regardless of sex [ Time Frame: From EOC to first event (relapse, second malignant neoplasm, remission death) or date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ]Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and standard errors and confidence intervals estimated by the method of Peto. Estimation of treatment effect will be done using ITT analysis based on randomized group.
- Incidence of adverse events for the integration of inotuzumab ozogamicin into the mBFM chemotherapy backbone in HR B-ALL [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Graded per National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.0. Will be monitored and reported.
- 5-year event-free survival (EFS) for patients with mixed phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL) receiving mBFM HR B-ALL therapy that includes a second IM phase with Capizzi escalating intravenous MTX without leucovorin rescue plus pegaspargase (C-MTX) [ Time Frame: From study entry to first event (induction failure, Induction death, end of induction (EOI) minimal residual disease (MRD) >= 5%, EOC MRD >= 0.01%, relapse, second malignancy, remission death) or date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ]Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and standard errors and confidence intervals estimated by the method of Peto. Estimation of treatment effect will be done using ITT analysis based on randomized group.
- 5-year EFS for patients with disseminated (Murphy stage III-IV) B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LLy) receiving mBFM HR B-ALL therapy that includes a second IM phase with C-MTX [ Time Frame: From study entry to first event (progressive disease, induction death, relapse, second malignancy, remission death) or date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ]Will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and standard errors and confidence intervals estimated by the method of Peto. Estimation of treatment effect will be done using ITT analysis based on randomized group.
Other Outcome Measures:
- Therapy administered to patients with MPAL who come off protocol therapy due to poor disease response to ALL therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Will be described.
- Disease response in patients with MPAL who come off protocol therapy due to poor disease response to ALL therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Will be described.
- Survival outcomes of patients with MPAL who come off protocol therapy due to poor disease response to ALL therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Will be described.
- Prevalence and significance of minimal marrow disease (MMD) at diagnosis and bone marrow MRD in disseminated B-LLy [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Percentages with MMD at induction and MRD positivity at end of Induction will be described.
- Impact of proposed adherence-enhancing interventions, intervention package as used in ACCL1033 versus (vs.) intensified intervention package vs. patient/parent-established intervention package, on adherence to oral 6 mercaptopurine [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]The main analyses will use mixed models including random effects to account for the multiple sites and longitudinal observations within patients. Will examine unadjusted associations of the primary outcome (MEMS-based adherence rate) with demographic, clinical and sociodemographic variables for the entire cohort (across 3 intervention arms). Those patient-level factors associated with the outcome will be included in the main model as fixed effects to improve the precision of the estimates. The basic model for adherence will include time and mean adherence during the baseline pre-intervention period and treatment group. It will also include interactions between time and both baseline adherence and intervention group to allow for intervention-specific trends and normal changes in adherence over time.
- B-ALL and MPAL patients must be enrolled on APEC14B1 and consented to eligibility studies (Part A) prior to treatment and enrollment on AALL1732. Note that central confirmation of MPAL diagnosis must occur within 7 business days after enrollment for MPAL patients. If not performed within this time frame, patients will be taken off protocol.
- APEC14B1 is not a requirement for B-LLy patients but for institutional compliance every patient should be offered participation in APEC14B1. B LLy patients may directly enroll on AALL1732 and MUST submit eligibility studies as outlined.
- White blood cell count (WBC) criteria for patients with B-ALL (within 7 days prior to the start of protocol-directed systemic therapy):
- Age 1-9.99 years: WBC >= 50,000/uL

- Age 1-9.99 years: WBC < 50,000/uL with:
- Testicular leukemia
- CNS leukemia (CNS3)
- Steroid pretreatment.
- White blood cell count (WBC) criteria for patients with MPAL (within 7 days prior to the start of protocol-directed systemic therapy):
- Age 1-24.99 years: any WBC.
- Patient has newly diagnosed B-ALL or MPAL (by World Health Organization [WHO] 2016 criteria) with > 25% blasts on a bone marrow (BM) aspirate;
