The main objective of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of venetoclax in combination with azacitidine (AZA) and best supportive care (BSC) compared to BSC as maintenance therapy in adult participants with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first remission after conventional chemotherapy. This study will be conducted in two parts. Part 1 will be the Dose Confirmation portion to determine recommended Phase 3 dose of venetoclax in combination with AZA. Part 2 will be the randomization portion to evaluate if venetoclax in combination with AZA as maintenance therapy improves RFS comparing to BSC. Part 2 begins after Part 1 is completed. During this study, participants will receive venetoclax and azacitidine or best supportive care for approximately 2 years with study visits varying from 1-5 per month. Part 3 will be the Dose Finding portion to determine levels of venetoclax in combination with Azacitidine (CC-486) to be explored. CC-486, and BSC may be administered for up to 24 cycles.
