Trial of Rituximab Versus Oral Cyclophosphamide to Eradicate or Suppress Autoimmune Anti-Factor VIII Antibodies in Acquired Hemophilia A

2014-08-27 03:45:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the rate of response when administering rituximab to suppress or eliminate the anti-body in a patient's blood that inhibits the effectiveness of their factor replacement product compared to treatment using cyclophosphamide. This is a Phase 2/3 study to find out what effects (good and bad) and response rituximab has on a patient and their anti-Factor VIII antibodies. Also, to compare the effect (good and bad) of the rituximab with cyclophosphamide on a patient and their anti-Factor VIII antibodies to see which is better. This research is being done because we do not know which treatment regimen (rituximab or cyclophosphamide) is more effective in eliminating or suppressing the anti-Factor VIII antibody in patients with acquired Hemophilia A.

Description

This is a prospective Phase II randomized multi-institutional controlled pilot trial comparing the regimen of single agent rituximab with 6 weeks cytotoxic therapy with oral cyclophosphamide to eradicate or suppress autoimmune anti-factor VIII antibodies in individuals with acquired hemophilia A. Patients will be randomized to receive either of these two regimens when their autoimmune anti-factor VIII antibodies prove to be refractory to initial upfront immunosuppressive treatment with oral prednisone 1 mg/kg/day (or equivalent corticosteroid doses) for 3 weeks. Patients will be randomized to the treatment cohorts according to the biostatistical methods.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A deficiency of blood coagulation factor IX inherited as an X-linked disorder. (Also known as Christmas Disease, after the first patient studied in detail, not the holy day.) Historical and clinical features resemble those in classic hemophilia (HEMOPHILIA A), but patients present with fewer symptoms. Severity of bleeding is usually similar in members of a single family. Many patients are asymptomatic until the hemostatic system is stressed by surgery or trauma. Treatment is similar to that for hemophilia A. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1008)

The classic hemophilia resulting from a deficiency of factor VIII. It is an inherited disorder of blood coagulation characterized by a permanent tendency to hemorrhage.

A hereditary deficiency of blood coagulation factor XI (also known as plasma thromboplastin antecedent or PTA or antihemophilic factor C) resulting in a systemic blood-clotting defect called hemophilia C or Rosenthal's syndrome, that may resemble classical hemophilia.

A synthetic anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid derived from CORTISONE. It is biologically inert and converted to PREDNISOLONE in the liver.

An antineoplastic agent used primarily in combination with mechlorethamine, vincristine, and prednisone (the MOPP protocol) in the treatment of Hodgkin's disease.
