Transcriptomic profiles of chronic lymphocytic leukemia before and after frontline therapy: 5-year results from the randomized CLL14 study

CLL14 (NCT02242942) is a multinational, open-label Phase III study designed to compare venetoclax-obinutuzumab (Ven-Obi) versus chlorambucil-obinutuzumab (Clb-Obi) in previously untreated patients with CLL and co-existing conditions. Between Aug 7, 2015, and Aug 4, 2016, 432 patients were enrolled and randomly assigned to receive either venetoclax plus obinutuzumab (Ven-Obi, n=216) or chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab (Clb-Obi, n=216). In both study arms, patients received fixed-duration treatment of overall 12 cycles, each cycle 28 days long, and entered subsequent post-treatment surveillance. Peripheral blood samples were collected before the start of therapy, as well as every 3-6 months during and after therapy, including at the time of disease progression. The primary endpoint of the study was progression-free survival, secondary endpoints included overall response rate, minimal residual disease response, and overall survival. The primary read-out was conducted after a median follow-up of 28.1 months, when the primary endpoint was met with 30 primary end-point events (disease progression or death) in the Ven-Obi arm and 77 in the Clb-Obi arm (hazard ratio, 0.35; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.23 to 0.53;P<0.001). Follow-up is ongoing until 9 years after the last patient enrollment. In an exploratory analysis, bulk RNAseq was conducted with CD19-enriched blood from patients before start of therapy (418 patients) and at first relapse (44 patients).
