RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of monoclonal antibody therapy consisting of rituximab in treating patients with refractory or recurrent hairy cell leukemia following cladribine therapy.
- Determine the rate of complete and partial remission, remission duration, and relapse free survival after treatment with rituximab in patients with refractory or recurrent hairy cell leukemia who previously received cladribine.
- Determine the acute and long term toxicity of rituximab in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients receive rituximab IV over several hours once a week for 4 weeks.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 3 years and every 6 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 8-25 patients will be accrued for this study within 3 years.
Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Active, not recruiting

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if giving granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) together with rituximab can improve the ability of rituximab to shr...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the ability of Rituximab maintenance therapy to prolong progression free survival in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, who responded to a ...
The purpose of this study is to provide treatment for patients who have CLL, and to compare the use of rituximab added to FC with FC alone, to determine if rituximab lengthens the time a p...
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help...
The present study aims at evaluating whether treatment with two different drugs, Ibrutinib and Rituximab is both efficient and safe for newly diagnosed patients with chronic lymphocytic le...
PALG CLL4 is the first, randomized, phase IIIb study with cladribine, cyclophosphamide and rituximab (RCC) induction and subsequent maintenance with rituximab in previously untreated chronic lymphocyt...
Venetoclax inhibits BCL2, an antiapoptotic protein that is pathologically overexpressed and that is central to the survival of chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. We evaluated the efficacy of venetocl...
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) reactivation is an unresolved medical issue after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Rituximab treatment is recommended for EBV reactivation after HSCT...
There is limited amount of data available on the comparative efficacy of ibrutinib and idelalisib, the B-cell receptor inhibitors (BCRi) newly approved for relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leuk...
A murine-derived monoclonal antibody and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that binds specifically to the CD20 ANTIGEN and is used in the treatment of LEUKEMIA; LYMPHOMA and RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.
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...
