Study of VELCADE for Relapsed or Refractory T-cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia

2014-08-27 03:12:12 | BioPortfolio


The investigators hope to learn more about the clinical efficacy of bortezomib in T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia. Patients will be selected as a possible participant in this study because they have a bone marrow disorder known as T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-cell PLL) which does not tend to respond well to conventional treatment with chemotherapy.

VELCADE in Combination With Idarubicin and Cytosine Arabinoside in Patients With Acute Myelogenous Leukemia

The primary objective of this study is to establish the maximally tolerated dose of VELCADE that can be administered with idarubicin and cytarabine in patients with AML. The secondary obje...

Study of VELCADE® With Mitoxantrone and Etoposide for Leukemias

VELCADE is a drug that blocks growth of cancer cells and helps destroy them. This research will help us to determine if VELCADE when combined with chemotherapy is useful in treating the le...

Study of Velcade® and Bone Formation in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Velcade (bortezomib, PS-341) has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) for patients who have received at least one pri...

Phase 2 Study of VELCADE (Bortezomib) in Patients With Relapsed Follicular Lymphoma

This is a phase 2, two-arm, non-randomized, open-label, multicenter study evaluating the safety and efficacy of 2 VELCADE-containing regimens. Patients will be treated with either a combin...

Safety and Efficacy of RAD001 in Patients With Mantle Cell Lymphoma Who Are Refractory or Intolerant to Velcade® Therapy.

This study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a daily, oral dose of 10 mg RAD001 in patients with Mantle Cell Lymphoma who are refractory or intolerant to Velcade® therapy and who ...

Extracellular vesicles in leukemia.

Extracellular vesicles (EV) are nano-sized membrane enclosed vehicles that are involved in cell-to-cell communication and carry cargo that is representative of the parent cell. Recent studies have hig...

T-Lymphoblastic Leukemia/Lymphoma With Annular Skin Rash and Epidermotropism.

Leukemia cutis is uncommon in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. It typically presents with dermal papules or subcutaneous nodules, with no epidermal or upper papillary dermal involvement on ...

Widespread use of measurable residual disease in acute myeloid leukemia practice.

Measurable residual disease (MRD) has prognostic importance for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). How leukemia providers incorporate MRD into routine practice remains undefined.

Photochemotherapy and Graft-versus-Leukemia Reaction in Acute Leukemia: Tumor Immunity and Survival Are Dependent on Timing of Photochemotherapy of the Skin.

Cure of acute leukemia after transplantation is mediated by the grafted cells. We investigated the graft-versus-leukemia effect (GVL) in patients with cutaneous acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) ...

Icariin induces apoptosis in acute promyelocytic leukemia by targeting PIM1.

Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is one type of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) featured by abnormal, heavily granulated promyelocytes. This study aimed to investigate the antitumor activity of icariin...

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.
