Protocol: OSU-15095

Full Title

A Randomized, Multicenter, Open-Label, Non-Inferiority, Phase III Study of ACP-196 Versus Ibrutinib in Previously Treated Subjects with High Risk Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia


This study is designed to evaluate PFS endpoint for acalabrutinib vs ibrutinib in previously

treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
