Ofatumumab is a fully-human monoclonal antibody that exhibits high binding affinity to an antigen on the surface of B lymphocytes. Antigen engagement by ofatumumab results in maximal B-cell killing through complement-dependent cytotoxicity and antigen-dependent cellular cytotoxicity in both antigen high- and low-expressing cells. Recent research has shown that ofatumumab-dependent B-cell depletion provides clinical benefit to subjects with CD20-positive cancers such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The purpose of the current study is to assess the impact of ofatumumab on electrocardiographic parameters with particular focus on cardiac repolarization (QTc interval duration) in subjects with refractory CLL. Subjects enrolled in this open-label, single-arm trial will receive ofatumumab at the highest clinical dose (2000 mg) studied or planned for study. Ofatumumab will be administered as eight weekly intravenous (IV) infusions followed by four monthly infusions, beginning in Week 13, across a 25-week treatment period. Cardiovascular effects will be evaluated during treatment through routine 12-lead electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring. The pharmacokinetic relationship between plasma concentration of ofatumumab and its effect on QTc interval duration will be examined. Specifically, ECG assessments will be collected in triplicate at baseline, at the time of maximum ofatumumab concentrations periodically on-therapy, and at the end of treatment. After completion of the final ofatumumab infusion, subjects will continue to be followed for safety and efficacy for six months relative to the last ofatumumab dose.
The purpose of this trial is to assess the impact of ofatumumab on electrocardiographic parameters with particular focus on cardiac repolarization (QTc interval duration) in subjects with refractory 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 ...
Ofatumumab is an IgG1κ fully human monoclonal antibody (mAb) that specifically recognizes an epitope on the human differentiation antigen CD20 molecule. In vitro and in vivo studies demon...
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 this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ofatumumab added to fludarabine-cyclophosphamide in patients with relapsed Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).
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.
Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is 10- to 20-fold less common in Asians (including Han Chinese) compared with persons of predominately European descent. Why is unknown but seems predominately gene...
Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) mRNA expression in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is associated with an unmutated immunoglobulin profile and poor clinical outcome. We evaluated the subcellular localizat...
Studies of a provisional entity pre-clinical chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), which precedes chronic phase (CP) without leucocytosis or blood/marrow feature of CML CP, has been increasing.
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.
Inflammatory diseases of the THYROID GLAND. Thyroiditis can be classified into acute (THYROIDITIS, SUPPURATIVE), subacute (granulomatous and lymphocytic), chronic fibrous (Riedel's), chronic lymphocytic (HASHIMOTO DISEASE), transient (POSTPARTUM THYROIDITIS), and other AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS subtypes.
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 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.
A nitrogen mustard alkylating agent used as antineoplastic for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, and others. Although it is less toxic than most other nitrogen mustards, it has been listed as a known carcinogen in the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985). (Merck Index, 11th ed)
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
