RATIONALE: Thalidomide may stop the growth of chronic lymphocytic leukemia by stopping blood flow to the tumor.
- Determine the objective response in patients with relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia treated with thalidomide.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the correlation between vascular growth factors and/or bone marrow angiogenesis patterns and thalidomide-related clinical response in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral thalidomide daily for 4 weeks. Courses repeat every 4 weeks for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-41 patients will be accrued for this study within 28 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

RATIONALE: Thalidomide may stop the growth of cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to determine the effectiveness of thalidomide in treating patients who hav...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine, work in different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Biological therapies such as thalidomide ...
RATIONALE: Thalidomide may be an effective treatment for anemia caused by myelodysplastic syndrome. PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of thalidomide in treatin...
The purpose of this research is to study how helpful thalidomide is in controlling the disease and to study any side effects from taking thalidomide.
The use of Thalidomide in patients with ALS who have disease progression.
Following the thalidomide disaster (1958-62), Henkel and Willert analysed the pattern of dysmelia in the long bones (J Bone Joint Surg Br. 51:399-414, 1969) and the extremities, Willert and Henkel (Z ...
Frequently used to treat morning sickness, the drug thalidomide led to the birth of thousands of children with severe birth defects. Despite their teratogenicity, thalidomide and related IMiD drugs ar...
Angiogenesis is essential for cancer metastasis, thus the discovery and characterization of molecules that inhibit this process is important. Thalidomide is a teratogenic drug which is known to inhibi...
Central nervous system (CNS) tuberculosis (TB) accounts for over 4% of all TB notifications in the United Kingdom, and causes death or significant disability in over half of those affected. TNF-alpha ...
A piperidinyl isoindole originally introduced as a non-barbiturate hypnotic, but withdrawn from the market due to teratogenic effects. It has been reintroduced and used for a number of immunological and inflammatory disorders. Thalidomide displays immunosuppresive and anti-angiogenic activity. It inhibits release of TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR-ALPHA from monocytes, and modulates other cytokine action.
A replication-defective strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) capable of transforming lymphoid cells and producing a rapidly progressing lymphoid leukemia after superinfection with FRIEND MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; MOLONEY MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; or RAUSCHER VIRUS.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) producing leukemia of the reticulum-cell type with massive infiltration of liver, spleen, and bone marrow. It infects DBA/2 and Swiss mice.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) arising during the propagation of S37 mouse sarcoma, and causing lymphoid leukemia in mice. It also infects rats and newborn hamsters. It is apparently transmitted to embryos in utero and to newborns through mother's milk.
A chronic leukemia characterized by a large number of circulating prolymphocytes. It can arise spontaneously or as a consequence of transformation of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
