A Multicentre, Non-Blinded Study Exploring Self-Administration of Chemotherapy in the Home Environment

2020-02-17 18:20:52 | BioPortfolio


This study is to see if the standard of care subcutaneous injection of bortezomib can safely be administered at home by the patient or caregiver. All tests and assessments are based on standard of care procedures.


Chemotherapy for malignancies is predominantly prescribed and delivered in a tertiary hospital and/or cancer centre setting. However, with modern chemotherapy, with a reduced side effect profile, this paradigm should be challenged. Indeed, the use of methotrexate and other biologics (a form of chemotherapy) in the Rheumatologic setting is commonly delivered effectively and safely in the community.

Taken together, a hospital-based model of chemotherapy delivery may not be warranted in all circumstances. Moreover, the use of this current model invariably discounts the time commitments, needs of patients and caregivers, as well as while not addressing the emerging concerns regarding system capacity, efficiency and effectiveness of safe chemotherapy delivery.

Venetoclax, bortezomib and S63845, an MCL1 inhibitor, in multiple myeloma.

Venetoclax, an orally available BCL2-selective inhibitor, has demonstrated promising single-agent anti-tumour activity in myeloma especially patients with t(11;14). Herein, whether venetoclax sensitiv...

The role of Apg-1 in HSF1 activation and bortezomib sensitivity in myeloma cells.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pyrazine and boronic acid derivative that functions as a reversible PROTEASOME INHIBITOR. It is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE MYELOMA and MANTLE CELL LYMPHOMA.

An asymptomatic and slow-growing PLASMA CELL dyscrasia characterized by presence of MYELOMA PROTEINS and clonal bone marrow plasma cells without end-organ damage (e.g., renal impairment). It is distinguished from MONOCLONAL GAMMOPATHY OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE by a much higher risk of progression to symptomatic MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

Abnormal immunoglobulins characteristic of MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

A rare, aggressive variant of MULTIPLE MYELOMA characterized by the circulation of excessive PLASMA CELLS in the peripheral blood. It can be a primary manifestation of multiple myeloma or develop as a terminal complication during the disease.

Adverse reactions that occur initially at the site of injection or infusion. Milder type is confined to a local allergic flare reaction. A more severe reaction is caused by extravasation of VESICANTS from the blood vessel at the site of injection and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. In tumor flare reaction symptoms involve well beyond the injection site such as an increase in the tumor size and tumor markers levels, bone pain, and HYPERCALCEMIA.
