    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To provide a risk-based classification system based on clinical, pathological, molecular, and early response data that will be used to assign all patients with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) to the Children's Oncology Group (COG) frontline specific-treatment studies. II. To capture classification data for correlative studies accompanying current COG ALL treatment protocols. III. To provide a central reference guide for all required and research studies that will be conducted in local and reference laboratories for all newly diagnosed ALL patients. IV. To provide a mechanism for optional banking of leukemia and germline specimens for current and future research. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to diagnosis (B-cell precursor vs infant vs T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL]). Patients undergo blood sample collection and bone marrow biopsies at baseline and during and after induction therapy for immunophenotyping for ALL confirmation and classification, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) ploidy, genomic variation, and cytogenetic (BCR-ABL, trisomies 4+10, and molecular testing for translocations) analysis by flow cytometry and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). Immunophenotype results obtained on this study are used to determine patient's assignment to specific clinical-trial treatments. Some samples (leukemic and germline) may be banked for current and/or future analyses.

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine if the administration of post-Induction age-adjusted intrathecal triple therapy (ITT) on a Modified Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster (MBFM) interim maintenance (IM) high-dose methotrexate (IMHDM) backbone will improve 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) of children with high-risk (HR) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) compared to age-adjusted intrathecal (IT) methotrexate (MTX). II. To determine, in a randomized fashion, if the cyclophosphamide + etoposide-containing regimen (Experimental Arm 1) or the clofarabine + cyclophosphamide + etoposide-combination regimen (Experimental Arm 2) will improve the 4-year DFS of children, adolescents, and young adults with very high-risk (VHR) ALL compared to a modified MBFM-IMHDM regimen that contains a second IM (Control Arm). III. To determine, in a randomized fashion, if the cyclophosphamide + etoposide + clofarabine-containing combination regimen (Experimental Arm 2) will improve the 4-year DFS of children, adolescents, and young adults with VHR-ALL compared to the cyclophosphamide + etoposide combination regimen (Experimental Arm 1). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the toxicity and tolerability of post-Induction age-adjusted ITT compared to age-adjusted IT MTX in children with HR-ALL. II. To determine the toxicity and tolerability of Experimental Arms 1 and 2 compared to the Control Arm in children, adolescents, and young adults with VHR-ALL. III. To determine whether a single-arm, modified Induction with limited anthracycline exposure and post-Induction therapy regimen with MBFM-IMIDM and reduced vincristine/steroid pulse frequency and enhanced supportive care in children with Down syndrome (DS) and HR-ALL will result in a >= 65% 5-year DFS and < 10% Induction mortality, and to gather clinical and biologic data that will facilitate further study to improve outcomes for this biologically and clinically unique patient subgroup. IV. To determine the toxicity and tolerability of MBFM-IMIDM in children with DS and HR-ALL. V. To determine if the reduction of minimal-residual disease (MRD) from end-Induction to end-Consolidation is greater for children, adolescents, and young adults with VHR-ALL receiving Experimental Arms 1 and/or 2 compared to the Control Arm. VI. To estimate overall survival (OS) rates both overall and by regimen for HR-ALL and VHR-ALL patients. VII. To determine if peripheral blood absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) at day 29 of Induction is predictive of DFS in children, adolescents, and young adults with HR-ALL. VIII. To determine the incidence and prognostic significance of recently discovered recurrent genomic lesions, including high cytokine receptor-like factor 2 (CRLF2) expression, CRLF2-activating genomic lesions, janus kinase (JAK) mutations, and IKAROS family zinc finger 1 (Ikaros) (IKZF1) mutations/deletions, in patients treated on this trial. IX. To determine the prognostic significance of molecular risk classifiers using Low Density Array (LDA) Taqman cards. X. To define the frequency of occurrence of key adverse events across all patient subgroups of HR-ALL in order to provide data for linked correlative biology studies that seek to develop biomarkers predictive of patients at risk for such events, including the following specific events: Grade 2 or higher (CNS hemorrhage, pancreatitis, osteonecrosis [ON], and seizure), Grade 3 or higher (GI bleed, encephalopathy, neuropathy, allergic reaction, ileus, mucositis/stomatitis, hyperbilirubinemia, and thrombosis), and all grades (transient ischemic attacks, strokes). XI. To define the differences in the burden of therapy between HR-ALL and VHR-ALL when treated on the various arms of this study by collecting and comparing the total number of days admitted to the hospital. XII. To determine the incidence of ON, defined by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and to characterize the natural history of clinically silent ON in children, adolescents, and young adults 10 years of age and greater and to assess the role of drugs (i.e., asparaginase and methotrexate) in addition to corticosteroids, in the risk for development of ON. XIII. To determine if the prevalence of cognitive deficits measured by CogState, in children (ages 6 to 11 years) with HR- and VHR-ALL at 1 year off therapy, is significantly higher than the normative population (> 14%) in the following domains: working memory, executive function, visual motor, processing speed, and visual attention. XIV. To compare the drug delivery of vincristine, pegaspargase, and methotrexate during Induction, Consolidation, Delayed Intensification, and Interim Maintenance II in 16-30 year olds treated on the control arm of the VHR study to that of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with ALL treated with the same therapy on the C10403 adult cooperative group trial.

    A Phase 1-2, Dose Escalation, Multicenter Study of Two Subcutaneous Regimens of SGI-110, a DNA Hypomethylating Agent, in Subjects With Intermediate or High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) or Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

    Location:

    Phoenix/Scottsdale, Ariz.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    Once the BED and MTD is determined in the Dose Escalation Segment, the Dose Expansion Segment will randomize patients with MDS, treatment naïve elderly AML, and relapsed/refractory AML patients to receive the BED or MTD dose. Relapsed/refractory AML patients may also receive SGI-110 on a daily x 10 schedule based on the total dose per cycle evaluated in the Dose Escalation Segment using the 5-daily regimen.

  10. A Randomized Open-Label Trial of Caspofungin Versus Fluconazole to Prevent Invasive Fungal Infections in Children Undergoing Chemotherapy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
    Rochester, Minn. View Summary

    A Randomized Open-Label Trial of Caspofungin Versus Fluconazole to Prevent Invasive Fungal Infections in Children Undergoing Chemotherapy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine if prophylaxis with caspofungin (caspofungin acetate) administered during periods of neutropenia following chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is associated with a lower incidence of proven or probable invasive fungal infections (IFI) compared with fluconazole. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine if prophylaxis with caspofungin will result in a lower incidence of proven or probable cases of invasive aspergillosis (IA) compared with fluconazole. II. To determine if prophylaxis with caspofungin will result in improved survival compared to fluconazole. III. To determine if prophylaxis with caspofungin will result in less empiric antifungal therapy compared to fluconazole. IV. To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive value of biweekly galactomannan (GM) and beta-D glucan testing in diagnosing IFI. V. To test the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes involved in innate immunity and proven or probable IFI. VI. To develop predictive models of IFI using SNP in genes involved in immunity and clinical covariates. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to disease (de novo acute myeloid leukemia vs all other patients). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. ARM I: Patients receive caspofungin acetate intravenously (IV) over 1 hour once daily (QD) beginning within 24-72 hours following the last dose of chemotherapy for each course and continuing until absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is 100-500/μL following the nadir or the next chemotherapy course begins. ARM II: Patients receive fluconazole IV over 2 hours or orally (PO) QD beginning within 24-72 hours following the last dose of chemotherapy for each course and continuing until absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is 100-500/μL following the nadir or the next chemotherapy course begins. In both arms, treatment continues in the absence of invasive fungal infections or disease progression. Blood samples may be collected twice weekly for antifungal antigen assays and at the end of course 1 for single nucleotide polymorphism analysis. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically for 2 years.
