A Phase 3 Randomized Trial of Inotuzumab Ozogamicin (IND#:133494, NSC#: 772518) for Newly Diagnosed High-Risk B-ALL; Risk-Adapted Post-Induction Therapy for High-Risk B-ALL, Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia, and Disseminated B-LLy

This phase III trial studies how well inotuzumab ozogamicin and post-induction chemotherapy work in treating patients with high-risk B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-ALL), mixed phenotype acute leukemia, and B-lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LLy). Inotuzumab ozogamicin is a monoclonal antibody, called inotuzumab, linked to a toxic agent called calicheamicin. Inotuzumab attaches to cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers calicheamicin to kill them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, cytarabine, doxorubicin, daunorubicin, methotrexate, leucovorin, mercaptopurine, thioguanine, vincristine, and pegaspargase, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

The overall goal of this study is to understand if adding inotuzumab ozogamicin to standard of care chemotherapy maintains or improves outcomes in High Risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (HR B-ALL). The goal of the part 1 of the study is to collect information about leukemia and the effects of the first two phases of treatment, called Induction and Consolidation on this cancer. Additionally, this study aims to investigate whether treating both males and females with the same duration of chemotherapy maintains outcomes for males who have previously been treated for 3 years from the start of Interim Maintenance in patient with High Risk Favorable (HR-Fav) and HR B-ALL. Another aim is to understand the outcomes of subjects with disseminated B-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B LLy) receiving HR B-ALL therapy. Finally, another goal of this study is to determine the outcomes of subjects with Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia (MPAL) with a favorable early response to treatment using High Risk B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia therapy.

A Phase 3 Trial Investigating Blinatumomab (IND# 117467, NSC# 765986) in Combination with Chemotherapy in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Standard Risk or Down syndrome B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL) and the Treatment of Patients with Localized B-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (B-LLy)

This phase III trial studies how well blinatumomab works in combination with chemotherapy in treating patients with or without Down syndrome and newly diagnosed, standard risk B-lymphoblastic leukemia or B-lymphoblastic lymphoma. Monoclonal antibodies, such as blinatumomab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vincristine, dexamethasone, prednisone, prednisolone, pegaspargase, methotrexate, cytarabine, mercaptopurine, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and thioguanine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Leucovorin decreases the toxic effects of methotrexate. Giving monoclonal antibody therapy with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells. Giving blinatumomab and combination chemotherapy may work better then combination chemotherapy alone in treating patients with B-ALL. This trial also assigns patients into different chemotherapy treatment regimens based on risk (the chance of cancer returning after treatment). Treating patients with chemotherapy based on risk may help doctors decide which patients can best benefit from which chemotherapy treatment regimens.

International Phase 3 trial in Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL) testing imatinib in combination with two different cytotoxic chemotherapy backbones.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Response-Based Chemotherapy in Treating Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome in Younger Patients With Down Syndrome

The overall goals of this study are to:

  • To find out if subjects with down syndrome and standard risk acute myeloid leukemia can be treated with less treatment and still have successful outcomes.
  • To find out if subjects with down syndrome and high risk acute myeloid leukemia can be successfully treated with stronger chemotherapy.

International Phase 3 trial in Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL) testing imatinib in combination with two different cytotoxic chemotherapy backbones. 

This randomized phase III trial studies how well imatihib mesylate and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving imatinib mesylate and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
