|- Brief summary||Background of the study:|
With current therapy, progression free survival of CLL in patients unfit for FCR is around 2 years. Venetoclax treatment,
especially when initially combined with an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (mAb) has high efficacy and in contrast to
kinase inhibitors, has the potency to result in MRD-negative disease status, which possibly allows drug discontinuation.
Obinutuzumab has the potency to debulk and therefore when used prior to venetoclax might efficiently prevent the
occurrence of tumor lysis tyndrome (TLS).
A prospective, multicenter, open-label, randomized phase -II trial.
First-line patients with CLL and unfit for FCR-like regimens.
After pre-induction with obinutuzumab, patients will receive induction treatment with obinutuzumab and/or venetoclax followed by 1 year maintenance with venetoclax (arm A) or MRD guided maintenance with venetoclax (Arm B)
Primary study parameters/outcome of the study
MRD negative bone marrow after maximum 24 cycles of (planned) venetoclax and no progression according to IWCLL criteria at any earlier timepoint.
