Study title

Treatment-free Remission Accomplished With Dasatinib in Patients With CML (TRAD) [Canada]

Scientific title

Treatment-free Remission Accomplished With Dasatinib in Patients With CML (TRAD) (ClinicalTrials.gov No. NCT02268370)

Indication and most important inclusion criteria

This study includes patients who:
- have chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase
- have been treated with first line imatinib for at least 3 years
- are in deep molecular remission (MR4.5) at study entry
- are at least 18 years old
- have an Eastern Co-Operative Group (ECOG) status of 0, 1 or 2
- have adequate kidney and liver function

Short description of intervention

This trial will evaluate how safe and effective it will be for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) to discontinue first line treatment with imatinib.

Study participants will stop taking imatinib if they have reached deep molecular response after at least 3 years of treatment. They will then be monitored for up to 2.5 years to see if they remain well without any treatment at all. Patients who have a relapse will be given dasatinib for up to 2 years. Patients who achieve a response and maintain a response on dasatinib will have the option of discontinuing dasatinib.
