This medicine is experimental. Because of that, the effectiveness has not been established and not all risks are known before starting the clinical trial. Furthermore, you may experience side effects from the clinical trial treatment. People who are in the study may choose to stop at any time.
This is a clinical study for adult patients who have recently been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia or AML. AML, is a type of cancer. It is when bone marrow makes white blood cells that are not normal. These are called leukemia cells. Some patients with AML have a mutation, or change, in the FLT3 gene. This gene helps leukemia cells make a protein called FLT3. This protein causes the leukemia cells to grow faster.
For patients with AML who cannot receive standard chemotherapy, azacitidine (also known as Vidaza®) is a current treatment option. This clinical study is testing an experimental medicine called ASP2215, also known as gilteritinib. Gilteritinib works by stopping the leukemia cells from making the FLT3 protein. This can help stop the leukemia cells from growing faster.
This study will compare three different treatments. Patients are assigned to one of these three groups by chance: an experimental medicine gilteritinib, a different medicine called azacitidine, also known as Vidaza® or both medicines (azacitidine and gilteritinib) together.
The clinical study will help show which treatment helps patients live longer.
