This study will research the side effects of pegaspargase (pronounced "peg-as-par-gase"); its brand name is ONCASPAR® when it is used with another FDA-approved cancer treatment (chemotherapy) drug called gemcitabine HCl (pronounced "gem-site-a-bean"; its brand name is GEMZAR®.
The purpose of this research study is for the study's sponsor, Enzon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Enzon"), to learn more about its drug pegaspargase. Pegaspargase is the drug's scientific or generic name. Because it is already approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it also has a brand name - ONCASPAR®. It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of a type of leukemia (cancer of white blood cells). However, pegaspargase is not approved by the FDA for treatment of the cancer in this study. This study will research the side effects of pegaspargase when it is used with another FDA-approved cancer treatment (chemotherapy) drug called gemcitabine HCl; its brand name is GEMZAR®. It is approved for the treatment of patients with cancer of the pancreas and of patients with breast cancer. However, gemcitabine is not approved by the FDA for treatment of any other types of cancer.
In addition, the combination of pegaspargase and gemcitabine for solid tumors and lymphoma in this study is investigational. This type of study treatment is called a "combination treatment" or a "combination study." The information (research data) from this study will be used by Enzon to plan other "combination" research studies with pegaspargase plus gemcitabine for the treatment of certain cancers.

This study is being conducted to evaluate the safety profile and the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of TAK-901 in adult patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma. This study will help...
This is a Phase 1, nonrandomized, open-label, dose-escalation study of 3-hour IV infusions of RH-1 administered to patients with advanced solid tumors or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Tre...
This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and clinical activity of AG-270 in subjects with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma with homozygous MTAP deletion.
The purpose of this study is to identify subjects with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma in which the methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP) protein has been lost.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of PS-341 in tre...
Secondary pancreatic tumors are uncommon and account for 2-5% of pancreatic cancer. Tumors characterized most commonly with pancreatic involvement are lymphoma, renal cell and lung carcinomas.
This study aimed to report clinical features and CT, MRI, PET/CT findings of solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) of the pancreas. Thirty-four patients with pathologically proven SPT were retrospectively...
While radioimmunotherapy (RIT) for the treatment of hematological malignancies such as indolent B-cell lymphoma has proven quite successful, clinical results of RIT in solid tumors have only been mode...
Crizotinib, an inhibitor of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), MET, and ROS1, is approved for treatment of patients with ALK-positive or ROS1-positive advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Howev...
Next generation sequencing (NGS) is becoming increasingly integrated into oncological practice and clinical research. NGS methods have also provided evidence for clonal evolution of cancers during dis...
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.
Any of a group of malignant tumors of lymphoid tissue that differ from HODGKIN DISEASE, being more heterogeneous with respect to malignant cell lineage, clinical course, prognosis, and therapy. The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
Anaplastic lymphoma of the skin which develops as a primary neoplasm expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. It is characterized by solitary nodules or ulcerated tumors.
A group of malignant tumors of the nervous system that feature primitive cells with elements of neuronal and/or glial differentiation. Use of this term is limited by some authors to central nervous system tumors and others include neoplasms of similar origin which arise extracranially (i.e., NEUROECTODERMAL TUMORS, PRIMITIVE, PERIPHERAL). This term is also occasionally used as a synonym for MEDULLOBLASTOMA. In general, these tumors arise in the first decade of life and tend to be highly malignant.
