Latest ALLG clinical trial recruiting for CML
A new clinical trial run by the Australasian Leukaemia & Lymphoma Group* (ALLG) is currently open to eligible people with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML).
CML13 – leading doctors, Dr David Yeung and Professor Tim Hughes
The CML13 trial is evaluating the most appropriate treatments for CML patients and the purpose of this important clinical Phase II trial is to evaluate the efficacy of asciminib in newly diagnosed patients with chronic phase CML.
Asciminib (previously known as ABL001) is a novel allosteric inhibitor of BCR-ABL that has demonstrated good tolerance and efficacy in CML patients who are resistant or intolerant to the currently available tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) drugs.
This trial is open to recruitment at the following sites:
Victoria – Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
New South Wales – Concord Hospital
South Australia – Royal Adelaide Hospital.
More locations to open over coming months.
For more information on this and other current clinical trials in CML, visit the ALLG website, or speak to your treating haematologist.
