Pomalidomide in Patients With Myeloproliferative Neoplasms in Fibrotic Stage
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||University of Ulm|
|Start date||December 2009|
|End date||December 2016|
|Trial size||95 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00949364, MPN-SG 01-09|
This is a phase II, multi-center study of pomalidomide in adult patients with PMF, SMF, and unclassifiable MPN showing at least grade 1 bone marrow fibrosis and requiring therapy. All patients will receive per oral pomalidomide on a daily basis.
First cohort (Before Amendment No. 1 ID 1-41):
Treatment starts with a phase of pomalidomide therapy with 2 mg per day. Individual dose reduction as outlined in the safety section is allowed. If no response was achieved (no complete remission (CR), partial response (PR), clinical improvement (CI) and no progressive disease according to the IWG-MRT criteria) after 3 months, prednisolone is added in a starting dose of 30 mg per day. In the absence of progressive disease, at least 6 months of treatment with pomalidomide is intended. In patients without disease progression after 6 months and those with response to treatment are intended to receive pomalidomide for at least 12 months. Additional antiproliferative treatment with hydroxyurea for leukocytosis (>20 x 109/l) and/or thrombocytosis (>750 x 109/l) and/or symptomatic splenomegaly in a starting dose of 2g/day with individual dose adjustment is allowed.
Second cohort (After Amendment No. 1 ID > 41):
To evaluate the relative impact of prednisolone to the objective response rate, a randomization has been integrated into the study concept. The addition of prednisolone is up-front randomized for the start of prednisolone either after 3 or 6 cycles of treatment with pomalidomide as single agent if no response occurred during this period. This results in the following treatment arms:
Treatment Arm A) Pomalidomide 0.5 mg per day + additional prednisolone at start of cycle 4 (day 85), in case no response was achieved until end of cycle 3.
Treatment Arm B) Pomalidomide 0.5 mg per day + additional prednisolone at start of cycle 7 (day 169), if no response was achieved until end of cycle 6.
Treatment for all patients starts with pomalidomide as single agent at a dose of 0.5mg per day. The addition of prednisolone will be initiated as randomized either at start of cycle 4 or start of cycle 7 (starting dose 30 mg per day). In the absence of progressive disease, at least 12 cycles of treatment with pomalidomide are intended.
Additional antiproliferative treatment with hydroxyurea for leukocytosis (>20 x 109/l) and/or thrombocytosis (>750 x 109/l) and/or symptomatic splenomegaly in a starting dose of 2g/day with individual dose adjustment is allowed.

Objective disease response, as defined by the IWG-MRT criteria for response in MF patients extended by the criterion RBC-transfusion independence (TI)
time frame: one year
Overall safety profile of pomalidomide characterized by type, frequency, severity, timing and relatedness of adverse events (AEs) and laboratory abnormalities observed during treatment
time frame: one year
time frame: three years
time frame: three years
time frame: three years
Male or female participants at least 50 years old.
- Age ≥50 years at the time of voluntarily signing an IRB/IEC-approved informed consent
- Diagnosis of Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN) either de novo myelofibrosis according to WHO criteria (PMF) , secondary myelofibrosis (post-PV MF and post-ET MF according to the IWG-MRT consensus terminology)  or unclassifiable MPN with biopsy proven myelofibrosis
- Anemia with hemoglobin level of <10 g/dl or transfusion-dependent anemia and/or thrombocytopenia <50 /nl or transfusion-dependent thrombocytopenia and/or neutropenia <1.0 /nl
- Splenomegaly (>11 cm diameter) and/or leukoerythroblastosis
- Adequate organ function, i.e. ALT and/or AST <3 x upper limit of normal (ULN), total bilirubin <3 x ULN, and serum creatinine <2 mg/dl
- Subject must be willing to receive transfusion of blood products
- ECOG performance status < 3
- Female subjects with non-childbearing potential:
- Agree to have a pregnancy test at baseline
- Male subjects:
- Agree to use condoms throughout study drug therapy, during any dose interruption and for four weeks after cessation of study therapy if their partner is of childbearing potential and has no contraception.
- Agree not to donate semen during study drug therapy and for four weeks after end of study drug therapy.
- All Subjects:
- Will be counseled about potential teratogenic risks of the study medication.
- Agree to abstain from donating blood while taking study drug therapy and for one week following discontinuation of study drug therapy.
- Agree not to share study medication with another person and to return all unused study drug to the investigator
- No more than a 12-weeks-supply of study drug will be dispensed at a time.
- Females of childbearing potentials°, pregnant or breast feeding females

- Peripheral neuropathy >grade 1 CTC
- No consent for registration, storage and processing of the individual disease-characteristics and course as well as information of the family physician about study participation.
- Presence of any medical/psychiatric condition or laboratory abnormalities which may limit full compliance with the study, increase the risk associated with study participation or study drug administration, or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the Investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study
- Drug or alcohol abuse within the last 6 months
- Patients with a "currently active" second malignancy other than nonmelanoma skin cancers. Patients are not considered to have a "currently active" malignancy if they have completed therapy and are considered by their physician to be at less than 30% risk of relapse within one year. Criteria for women of non-childbearing potential: A female patient or a female partner of a male patient is considered to have childbearing potential unless she meets at least one of the following criteria:
- Age ≥ 50 years and naturally amenorrhoeic for ≥ 1 year. Amenorrhoea following cancer therapy does not rule out childbearing potential
- Premature ovarian failure confirmed by a specialist gynecologist
