An Extension Study for Patients Who Are Deriving Benefit With CAL-101 to Continue on Treatment at the End of the Current Study

2014-08-27 03:15:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This extension study provides the opportunity for patients with hematologic malignancies who complete a prior CAL-101 study protocol to continue CAL-101 treatment as long as the patient is deriving clinical benefit.

Description

This is a long-term safety extension study of CAL-101 in patients with hematologic malignancies who complete other CAL-101 studies. Patients will be followed according to the standard of care as appropriate for their type of cancer. The dose of CAL-101 will generally be the same as the dose that was administered at the end of the prior study, but may be titrated up to improve clinical response or down for toxicity. Patients may receive other anti-cancer therapy. Patients will be withdrawn from the study if they develop progressive disease, unacceptable toxicity related to CAL-101, or if they no longer derive clinical benefit in the opinion of the investigator.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
