    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. (Clinical) II. To determine if prophylaxis with caspofungin will result in improved survival compared to fluconazole. (Clinical) III. To determine if prophylaxis with caspofungin will result in less empiric antifungal therapy compared to fluconazole. (Clinical) IV. To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive value of biweekly galactomannan (GM) and beta-D glucan testing in diagnosing IFI. (Biological) V. To test the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes involved in innate immunity and proven or probable IFI. (Biological) VI. To develop predictive models of IFI using SNP in genes involved in immunity and clinical covariates. (Biological) OUTLINE: 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) > 100-500/uL following the nadir or the next chemotherapy course begins. ARM II: Patients receive fluconazole IV over 1-2 hours or orally (PO) QD beginning within 24-72 hours following the last dose of chemotherapy for each course and continuing until ANC > 100-500/uL following the nadir or the next chemotherapy course begins. In both arms, treatment continues in the absence of invasive fungal infections or disease progression. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.

  7. A Phase 1 Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of Escalating Oral Doses of the Glutaminase Inhibitor CB-839 in Patients With Advanced and/or Treatment-Refractory Hematological Malignancies

    Phoenix/Scottsdale, Ariz. View Summary

    A Phase 1 Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of Escalating Oral Doses of the Glutaminase Inhibitor CB-839 in Patients With Advanced and/or Treatment-Refractory Hematological Malignancies

    Location:

    Phoenix/Scottsdale, Ariz.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    Many tumor cells, in contrast to normal cells, have been shown to require the amino acid glutamine to produce energy for growth and survival. To exploit the dependence of tumors on glutamine, CB-839, a potent and selective inhibitor of the first enzyme in glutamine utilization, glutaminase, will be tested in this Phase 1 study in patients with advanced hematologic malignancies. This study is an open-label Phase 1 evaluation of CB-839 in subjects with hematological tumors. Patients will receive CB-839 capsules orally three times daily. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. Part 1 is a dose escalation study to identify the recommended Phase 2 dose. In Part 2, all patients will receive the recommended Phase 2 dose. Both Parts 1 and 2 will enroll patients with advanced and/or treatment-refractory Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL), Multiple Myeloma (MM), or Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM). All patients will be assessed for safety, pharmacokinetics (plasma concentration of drug), pharmacodynamics (inhibition of glutaminase), biomarkers (biochemical markers that may predict responsiveness in later studies), and tumor response.

To determine if a maintenance regimen containing once weekly oral methotrexate at 40 mg/m^2/week will result in an improved disease-free survival (DFS) compared to that containing weekly oral methotrexate at 20 mg/m^2/week in the average-risk (AR) subset of pediatric patients with standard-risk (SR) B-precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). II. To determine whether a reduced-pulses maintenance regimen with vincristine sulfate/dexamethasone pulses delivered every 12 weeks can be used without adversely impacting DFS as compared to pulses given every 4 weeks in the AR subset of patients with SR B-precursor ALL. III. To confirm that patients in the low-risk (LR) subset of SR B-precursor ALL, based on clinical and cytogenetic features and minimal residual disease (MRD) criteria, can attain a 5-year DFS of at least 95% with either a P9904-based regimen that includes 6 courses of intermediate dose (1 g/m^2 over 24 hours) methotrexate without alkylating agents or anthracyclines (Arm LR-M), or an outpatient-based regimen identical to that of AR patients with reduced vincristine sulfate/dexamethasone pulses at 12-week intervals during maintenance (Arm LR-C). IV. To provide standardized treatment and enhanced supportive care to children with SR Down syndrome-ALL in order to improve outcomes and facilitate further study of this biologically and clinically unique patient subgroup. V. To improve understanding of the biology of localized B-LLy and DS B-LLy by obtaining biologic data, including FISH for recurrent cytogenetic lesions on paraffin specimen, and banking tissue for future research. VI. To describe the 5-year EFS and overall survival (OS) of patients with Murphy Stage I and II B-LLy receiving modified AR B-ALL therapy. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the burden of AR-ALL therapy as measured by surveys of the child's quality of life, missed days of school/daycare/work by children and parents, family functioning, parental perception of the child's health vulnerability, physical functioning, and emotional distress overall at different time points during and at the end of therapy. II. To assess the burden of AR-ALL therapy as measured by surveys of the child's quality of life, missed days of school/daycare/work by children and parents, family functioning, parental perception of the child's health vulnerability, physical functioning, and emotional distress by comparing children randomized to every 4-week vs every 12-week dexamethasone/vincristine sulfate pulses during maintenance therapy. III. To characterize the onset, severity, and natural history of vincristine associated neuropathy by physical therapists (or occupational therapists) in children undergoing therapy for AR-ALL, 1) overall at different time points during and at the end of therapy, and by 2) comparing children randomized to every 4 week vs. every 12 week dexamethasone/vincristine pulses during Maintenance. IV. To characterize the onset, severity, and natural history of vincristine associated neuropathy by physical therapists (or occupational therapists) in children undergoing therapy for AR B-ALL, 1) overall at different time points during and at the end of therapy, and by 2) comparing children randomized to every 4 week vs. every 12 week dexamethasone/vincristine pulses during Maintenance. V. To explore the correlation of minimal marrow disease (MMD) at diagnosis and outcome for patients with B-LLy. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
