    Rochester, Minn. View Summary

    Phase I/II Study of Veltuzumab Combined With 90Y-Epratuzumab Tetraxetan in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory, Aggressive Non- Hodgkin s Lymphoma

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    The treatment portion of this study consists of study drug administrations each week for four weeks in a row (a total of 4 treatment days). Patients will then return at intervals up to 12 weeks for blood samples and for evaluations to see if their disease responded and to monitor any adverse effects related to treatment. Some blood tests may then need to be repeated at least a few times and/or until any abnormal findings at earlier evaluations have resolved. Otherwise, patients will continue to be evaluated every 3 months for two years, then every 6 months up to 5 years or until the disease worsens. Participation in the study will end when NHL disease worsens.

  8. Phase 1/2 Open-Label, Multiple-Dose, Dose-Escalation Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of SNS01-T Administered by Intravenous Infusion in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory B Cell Malignancies

    Rochester, Minn. View Summary

    Phase 1/2 Open-Label, Multiple-Dose, Dose-Escalation Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of SNS01-T Administered by Intravenous Infusion in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory B Cell Malignancies

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    The main purpose is to test the safety and tolerability of SNS01-T. The first group of patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, plasma cell leukemia or B cell lymphoma will be given a relatively low dose. If tolerated, a second group will receive a higher dose. If tolerated by the second group, a third and then a fourth group will receive higher doses. Treatment-related adverse events (side effects), changes in vital signs, physical examination, and laboratory values will be monitored. Patients will receive twice weekly infusions for 6 weeks and then will be followed monthly for 6 months. A secondary purpose is to explore whether SNS01-T is an effective treatment for multiple myeloma, B cell lymphoma and plasma cell leukemia.

    A Comprehensive Approach to Improve Medication Adherence in Pediatric ALL

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the impact of interventions proposed in intervention program (IP) vs. education alone (EDU) on adherence to oral 6MP (mercaptopurine) in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Adherence will be measured by: i) Medication Event Monitoring Systems (MEMS) (primary measure of adherence to oral 6MP, providing real-time data; ii) red cell thioguanine nucleotide (TGN) levels (providing data on chronic, systemic 6MP exposure). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Examine the modifying effect of sociodemographic and psychosocial variables, and the mediating effect of health beliefs/ knowledge on change in adherence with intervention. II. Determine impact of IP vs. EDU on risk of relapse of ALL. OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 intervention arms. ARM I: Patients receive the Patients Supply Kit containing an electronic pill monitoring system, a MEMS® medication bottle with TrackCap™ with standard resistant cap, and written instructions for the patient and pharmacist. Parents and/or caregivers are also trained to supervise patients' intake of the medication. Beginning on day 1, patients start using the MEMS® medication bottle with TrackCap™. Clinical research assistants contact patients and parents by telephone the next day to confirm that TrackCap™ is being used, to identify any obstacles, and to determine solutions. Beginning on day 29, patients and caregivers view an interactive multimedia educational program on-line or via DVD. Patients also receive a customized electronic mercaptopurine schedule and automated customized text message reminders delivered via cellular phone or web-based interface. Patients and caregivers are instructed to return the MEMS® medication bottle with TrackCap™ to the clinic by day 141. ARM II: Patients receive the usual standard of care and the mercaptopurine from the MEMS® medication bottle with TrackCap™ as patients in arm I. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 5 years and then annually until 10 years from diagnosis.
