Who can take part

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:


  1. Diagnosis of relapsed or refractory CLL that meets published diagnostic criteria (International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia [IWCLL] Hallek 2008) and supported/documented by medical records
  2. Subjects must be Relapse/Refractory high risk CLL and have exhausted other therapeutic options according to local/regional standard of care
  3. Must have received ≥1 prior therapy for treatment of their disease.


  1. A diagnosis of ataxia telangiectasia
  2. Any prior exposure to an ATR inhibitor or known hypersensitivity to an excipient of the product.
  3. Known history of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
  4. A life-threatening illness, medical condition or organ system dysfunction which, in the investigator's opinion, could compromise the subject's safety, interfere with the absorption or metabolism of ACP-196 (acalabrutinib) and/or Ceralasertib
  5. Significant cardiovascular disease such as uncontrolled or symptomatic arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or myocardial infarction within 6 months of screening, or any Class 3 or 4 cardiac disease as defined by the New York Heart Association Functional Classification, or corrected QT interval (QTc) > 480 msec.
  6. Malabsorption syndrome, disease significantly affecting gastrointestinal function, or resection of the stomach or small bowel or ulcerative colitis, symptomatic inflammatory bowel disease, or partial or complete bowel obstruction.
  7. Requirement of treatment with proton-pump inhibitors (e.g., omeprazole, esomeprazole, lansoprazole, dexlansoprazole, rabeprazole, or pantoprazole). Subjects receiving proton-pump inhibitors who switch to H2-receptor antagonists or antacids are eligible for enrollment to this study.
