Belinostat and Bortezomib in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome

2014-07-24 14:07:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Belinostat and bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving belinostat together with bortezomib may kill more cancer cells. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of giving belinostat together with bortezomib in treating patients with relapsed or refractory acute leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome.

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the recommended phase II doses for the combination of bortezomib and belinostat in patients with relapsed or refractory acute leukemia (AL), myelodysplasia (MDS), and chronic myelogenous leukemia in blast crisis. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine safety and tolerance and describe the toxicities of the combination. II. To demonstrate adequate methods for the assessment of pharmacodynamic response of leukemia cells from the bone marrow and/or peripheral blood in terms of effects on NF-kB (nuclear RelA by immunofluorescence microscopy), NF-kB dependent proteins XIAP and Bcl-xL, and BIM, and document pharmacodynamic responses observed in the course of this study. III. To document activity of the combination observed in the course of this study. OUTLINE: Patients receive belinostat IV over 30 minutes on days 1-5 and 8-12 and bortezomib IV on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method that is used to detect DNA-protein interactions. Proteins are separated by electrophoresis and blotted onto a nitrocellulose membrane similar to Western blotting (BLOTTING, WESTERN) but the proteins are identified when they bind labeled DNA PROBES (as with Southern blotting (BLOTTING, SOUTHERN)) instead of antibodies.

A method that is derived from western blotting (BLOTTING, WESTERN) and is used to detect protein-protein interactions. The blotted proteins are probed with a non-antibody protein which can then be tagged with a labeled antibody.

Identification of proteins or peptides that have been electrophoretically separated by blot transferring from the electrophoresis gel to strips of nitrocellulose paper, followed by labeling with antibody probes.

Detection of RNA that has been electrophoretically separated and immobilized by blotting on nitrocellulose or other type of paper or nylon membrane followed by hybridization with labeled NUCLEIC ACID PROBES.

A method (first developed by E.M. Southern) for detection of DNA that has been electrophoretically separated and immobilized by blotting on nitrocellulose or other type of paper or nylon membrane followed by hybridization with labeled NUCLEIC ACID PROBES.
