Interleukin-2 in Treating Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome

2014-08-27 03:59:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of interleukin-2 in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndrome.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the safety, tolerance, and maximum tolerated dose of subcutaneous interleukin-2 (aldesleukin; IL-2) in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

- Evaluate the hematologic effects of subcutaneous IL-2 in MDS.

OUTLINE: IL-2 will be administered in cycles of twice daily subcutaneous injections 7 days a week for 4 consecutive weeks. After each cycle the patient will be evaluated for response. The patient could continue IL-2 therapy for up to 12 cycles. There are 4 dose levels of IL-2. At each dose level 3 patients will be accrued sequentially.

Treatment with IL-2 should be continued until grade III toxicity or any side effects requiring hospitalization occurs. After the patient returns to baseline pretherapy values or grade I toxicity, the subject will resume IL-2 at 50% of the initial dose. If the patient again goes into grade III toxicity or is in need of hospitalization, IL-2 will be discontinued.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Between 12-24 patients will be accrued.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A lymphoid leukemia characterized by a profound LYMPHOCYTOSIS with or without LYMPHADENOPATHY, hepatosplenomegaly, frequently rapid progression, and short survival. It was formerly called T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
