16. Interruption of imatinib therapy for a cumulative period in excess of 21 days in the preceding 3 months;
17. Major toxicity on imatinib in past 3 months;
18. History of non compliance, or other inability to grant informed consent;
19. Past or present history of alcohol abuse, use of illicit drugs, or severe psychiatric disorders, including depression;
20. Known hypersensitivity to any interferon preparation;
21. Autoimmune hepatitis or a history of autoimmune disease;
22. Pre existing thyroid disease unless it can be controlled with conventional treatment;

- InterventionsPatients will be treated with nilotinib 300 mg BID at the beginning of the study to establish the tolerability before adding PegIFN. Combination treatment will be continued until Month 12, which is followed by monotherapy phase of nilotinib 300 mg BID for 12 months.
- Primary outcome1. The proportion of patients with confirmed MR4.0 IS at Month 12;

3. The presence and frequency of BCR-ABL-, WT1, Prame- or PR1-specific cytotoxic T-cells as measured by flow cytometry using tetramer technique;
4. The cytotoxic capacity of lymphocytes, as measured by killing activity of NK cells, IFN production by and granzyme B staining of T cells after stimulation, all performed pre- and post treatment;
5. Plasma cytokine profiles, as measured by the Luminex multiplex array system pre- and post-treatment;
6. Phosphoproteomic profiles pre- and post-treatment;
7. The frequency of residual leukemic stem cells, as detected by flow cytometry using phospho-CRKL activity as a read-out of BCR-ABL activity.

- Brief summaryStudy phase: Phase II.

Patient population:
Patients with suboptimal molecular response or stable detectable molecular residual disease after ≥2 years of treatment with imatinib (i.e. BCR ABL level between 0.01% and 1% IS).

Study objective:
To assess the effect of switching CML patients, who have been treated with imatinib 2 years and who have stable detectable molecular residual disease between 0.01-1.0% (IS), to the combination of Nilotinib and PegIFN, in terms of the proportion of patients who achieve confirmed MR4.0.

Study design:
Single arm, open label, multicenter study to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of nilotinib 300 mg BID, alone and in combination with PegIFN 25 - 40 g/week in patients not in CMR. Patients will be treated with nilotinib 300 mg BID at the beginning of the study to establish the tolerability before adding PegIFN. Combination treatment will be continued until Month 12, which is followed by monotherapy phase of nilotinib 300 mg BID. Overall study duration for the individual patient is 24 months.
