This is a single center, single arm, open-label phase 2 study to determine the efficacy of autologous T cells expressing CD19 chimeric antigen receptors expressing tandem TCRζ and 4-1BB (TCRζ/4-1BB) co-stimulatory domains (referred to as "CART19" cells) in adults with minimal residual disease (MRD) during upfront treatment for CD19+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This is a single arm, open-label, multi-center study to determine the efficacy and safety of an experimental therapy called CART-19 in patients with chemo-refractory and relapsed B-cell AL...
This is a study for patients who have been previously treated for B-ALL. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and feasibility of CART-19 cells to the patients with relapsed...
RATIONALE: Determination of genetic markers for acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute promyelocytic leukemia may help identify patients with this disease and help predict the outcome of t...
Clofarabine (injection) is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of pediatric patients 1 to 21 years old with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who...
To study the genomics with cell cycle and lymphocyte differentiation in disease, remission and relapse of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Then correlate these data with age, white ...
Obesity is a medical problem in survivors of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Obesity is associated with many complications, so it is important to investigate the respective etiology. Leptin is...
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer representing 23% of pediatric cancers. Wilms' tumor -1 gene is a novel prognostic factor, minimal residual disease marker and the...
The seven in absentia homolog 2 (SIAH2) protein plays a significant role in human cancer by regulating hypoxia-inducible factor-a (HIF-1α); however, its role in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T...
A 4-year-old male with the diagnosis of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) relapsed after 19 months with an acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor gene rearrangement...
Identifying additional genetic alterations associated with poor prognosis in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is still a challenge.
A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)
Enzyme that is a major constituent of kidney brush-border membranes and is also present to a lesser degree in the brain and other tissues. It preferentially catalyzes cleavage at the amino group of hydrophobic residues of the B-chain of insulin as well as opioid peptides and other biologically active peptides. The enzyme is inhibited primarily by EDTA, phosphoramidon, and thiorphan and is reactivated by zinc. Neprilysin is identical to common acute lymphoblastic leukemia antigen (CALLA Antigen), an important marker in the diagnosis of human acute lymphocytic leukemia. There is no relationship with CALLA PLANT.
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and adolescents and characterized by a high number of lymphoblasts and solid tumor lesions. Frequent sites involve LYMPH NODES, skin, and bones. It most commonly presents as leukemia.
A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.
An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
