This is an open label study to determine the effects of the administration of Interferon-gamma on the clinical condition and immune function of patients with severe, treatment refractory non-tuberculosis mycobacterial infections. The study drug (interferon gamma) will be administered subcutaneously three times a week at 0.05 mg/m(2) for one year. We may also collect blood from the relatives of these patients and normal volunteers in order to characterize the genetic basis, if ...
When administered simultaneously, interferon-alpha 2b + interferon-gamma result in dramatic antiviral synergy.Ribavirin has shown to enhance interferon-gamma levels in patients with chronic hepatitis C treated with interferon-alpha. Enhancement of immune responses, especially those related to type-1 T helper cell activity, may contribute to better efficacy in combining ribavirin with IFN-alpha for treatment of chronic hepatitis C. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the...
This study will evaluate the lung's immune response to mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection and will modulate that response with interferon-gamma.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive disease for which there is no effective treatment. Interferon-gamma is a medication that has been used for other lung diseases to decrease scarring and fibrosis. Studies of interferon-gamma injected under the skin did not show any improvement in survival in patients with IPF. We hypothesize that giving interferon-gamma as a nebulized mist directly into the lungs can affect the immune system in a way that decreases fibrosis...
The purpose of this research study is to test the safety and effectiveness of inhaled Interferon gamma-1b (IFN-g 1b), when administered for 48 weeks and in combination with oral antibiotics which may be administered for up to 72 weeks for the treatment of a lung infection caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium avium complex . FDA has not approved Interferon gamma-1b for use in patients with MAC infection of the lungs, which is the purpose of this study.Interferon gamma-1b ...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of Interferon gamma-1b (IFN-gamma 1b) when administered by subcutaneous injection over a period of 4 weeks to patients with mild-to-moderate cystic fibrosis. Additionally, preliminary assessments on the effects of IFN-gamma 1b on lung function and other indicators of health will be made.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Interferon gamma-1b (IFN-g 1b) on lung function when given to patients with cystic fibrosis by inhalation (breathed into the lungs) three times a week for 12 weeks. The FDA has not approved Interferon gamma-1b for use with cystic fibrosis patients, which is the condition being examined in this study.
This purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and to find the optimal dose in participants with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) positive breast cancer who are given the combination of Interferon-gamma with paclitaxel, trastuzumab and pertuzumab. This study will also look at other effects of Interferon-gamma with paclitaxel, trastuzumab and pertuzumab, including its effect on this type of cancer. Interferon-gamma is a biologically manufactured protein tha...
New blood tests have become available to detect either latent or active tuberculosis. These tests - which according to the CDC can replace the tuberculin skin test - measure the production of gamma-interferon (a cytokine) by peripheral lymphocytes (white cells) when exposed to antigens which are highly specific of mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacteria responsible for tuberculosis). Our hypothesis was that the production of gamma-interferon would be much higher at the beginni...
The purposes of this study are to determine: 1) if treatment with interferon gamma-1b plus standard chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) can increase the overall survival of patients with advanced ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma compared with chemotherapy alone; 2) how effective interferon gamma-1b plus standard chemotherapy is in preventing the progression or return of cancer; 3) the effects on quality of life; and 4) the safety of interferon gamma-1b combined wit...
PRIMARY: To determine the safety and toxicity of recombinant interferon gamma-1b ( rIFN-gamma ) in HIV-infected children receiving ongoing zidovudine ( AZT ) or didanosine ( ddI ) therapy. To document HIV-associated defects in neutrophil and/or monocyte function that are improved with rIFN-gamma. SECONDARY: To determine whether a change in CD4 cell count occurs and to assess virologic status and effects on AZT and ddI pharmacokinetics. It is likely that infants and chil...
In a recent double-blinded, placebo-controlled multi-center international study, subcutaneous injections of interferon-gamma administered three times weekly reduced the frequency of serious infections in patients with chronic granulomatous disease. Patients receiving interferon-gamma had fewer hospital stays, shorter in length, than the placebo group. Children less than 10 years of age benefitted most from treatment and had fewer side effects. Based on these data, the ...
To determine safety and tolerance of administering aerosolized recombinant interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) for 4 weeks in patients with AIDS. To examine activation of alveolar macrophages by aerosolized IFN-gamma administration. To determine if subcutaneous (SC) injection of IFN-gamma can activate alveolar macrophages in AIDS patients.
OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the rate of treatment failure in osteopetrosis patients receiving interferon gamma in combination with calcitriol to the rate of treatment failure in patients receiving calcitriol alone. II. Compare the number of adverse events or clinical manifestations of disease progression occurring in these patients. III. Assess the effects of interferon gamma on hematopoiesis, cranial nerve function, and rate of infection in these patients.
The purpose of this study is to examine the antifungal activity of recombinant interferon-gamma 1b (rIFN-gamma 1b) given with standard antifungal therapy.
RATIONALE: Interferon gamma may interfere with the growth of cancer cells and may be an effective treatment for melanoma and solid tumors. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of interferon gamma in treating patients with recurrent or metastatic melanoma or other solid tumors.
This phase II trial studies how well pembrolizumab and interferon gamma-1b work in treating patients with stage IB-IVB mycosis fungoides and sezary syndrome that has come back or has not responded to previous treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Interferon gamma-1b may boost the immune system activity. Giving pembrolizumab and interferon gamma-1b together may work better in treating patients ...
Viral hepatitis C is treated with peg-interferon alpha 2a/2b and ribavirin. There is no treatment recommended for non responders patients. This study will evaluate the efficacy, after a second treatment with peg-interferon alpha 2a and ribavirin for 12 Weeks of the addition of interferon gamma in non responders patients
Open-label therapy will be administered to up to 220 patients, following completion of either InterMune Protocol GIPF-002 Part B or Protocol GIPF-004, to assess the long-term safety of subcutaneous Interferon gamma-1b. The study duration will be 5 years.
RATIONALE: Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's white blood cells including natural killer cells to kill prostate cancer cells. Interferon gamma may interfere with the growth of the cancer cells. Combining interferon gamma with interleukin-2 may be a more effective treatment for prostate cancer. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of biological therapy using interleukin-2 and interferon gamma in treating patients with advanced prostate cancer.
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's cancer cells may make the body build an immune response to and kill their tumor cells. Combining vaccine therapy with interferon gamma may be a more effective treatment for epithelial ovarian cancer. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of a tumor cell vaccine and interferon gamma in patients with refractory epithelial ovarian cancer.
