The risk of immunosuppression deters many patients from receiving fludarabine, while combination chemotherapy regimens are poorly tolerated by elderly or infirm chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. Previous studies by our group and others have shown that rituximab is safe and well tolerated when used as a single agent in patients with CLL. In addition, maintenance therapy with rituximab was well tolerated by CLL patients, with probable prolongation of progression-free survival (Hainsworth et al. 2003). Based on pre clinical and clinical studies indicating possible increased efficacy of ofatumumab in patients with CLL, we wish to develop an antibody-only regimen for older patients and patients who refuse fludarabine-based regimens.

The purpose of this research is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the drugs lenalidomide and ofatumumab in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
The purpose of the trial is to investigate the efficacy and safety of ofatumumab retreatment and maintenance in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia who have previously responded or ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the combination of bendamustine and ofatumumab in subjects with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia an...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of buparlisib when given together with ofatumumab or ibrutinib in treating patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia that has ret...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if ofatumumab can help to control CLL/SLL that has not yet been treated. The safety of this drug will also be studied.
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...
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common adult leukemia in the western world. This health problem is caused due to the accumulation of mature B-lymphocytes in the peripheral blood and bon...
The coexistence of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) with different gynecologic neoplasms is a rare phenomenon. Here, we report a case of simultaneously developed CLL/S...

A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
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.
A pathologic change in leukemia in which leukemic cells permeate various organs at any stage of the disease. All types of leukemia show various degrees of infiltration, depending upon the type of leukemia. The degree of infiltration may vary from site to site. The liver and spleen are common sites of infiltration, the greatest appearing in myelocytic leukemia, but infiltration is seen also in the granulocytic and lymphocytic types. The kidney is also a common site and of the gastrointestinal system, the stomach and ileum are commonly involved. In lymphocytic leukemia the skin is often infiltrated. The central nervous system too is a common site.
A nitrogen mustard compound that functions as an ALKYLATING ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT and is used in the treatment of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA and NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA.
