A Study of ACP-196 (Acalabrutinib) in Subjects With Relapsed/Refractory CLL and Intolerant of Ibrutinib Therapy

This trial is studying an investigational drug called ACP-196 (acalabrutinib). The study drug, ACP-196 (acalabrutinib), is a type of drug that blocks proteins inside cells that help cells live and grow. It is possible that the study drug may kill the cancer cells or stop them from growing. The purposes of this study are to find out if the study drug will slow or stop CLL from getting worse and whether the study drug causes side effects.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

   resection of the stomach, extensive small bowel resection that is likely to affect
   absorption, symptomatic inflammatory bowel disease, partial or complete bowel
   obstruction, or gastric restrictions and bariatric surgery, such as gastric bypass.

   7. Evidence of active Richter's transformation or any evidence of disease progression on
   ibrutinib therapy or any BTK inhibitor.

   8. CNS involvement by CLL or related Richter's transformation.

   9. Known history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), serologic status reflecting
   active hepatitis B or C infection, or any uncontrolled active systemic infection.

10. Uncontrolled autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) or idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura

11. History of stroke or intracranial hemorrhage within 2 months before the first dose of
   study drug.

12. History of bleeding diathesis.

13. Presence of a gastrointestinal ulcer diagnosed by endoscopy within 3 months before

14. Major surgical procedure within 28 days of first dose of study drug.

15. Requires treatment with a strong CYP3A inhibitor
