  • Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of a Combination of Favezelimab (MK-4280) and Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Participants With Hematologic Malignancies (MK-4280-003)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of favezelimab (MK-4280) in combination with pembrolizumab (MK-3475) using a non-randomized study design in participants with the following hematological malignancies: - classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) - diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) - indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL) This study will also evaluate the safety and efficacy of pembrolizumab or favezelimab administered as monotherapy in participants with cHL using a 1:1 randomized study design. The study will have 2 phases: a safety lead-in and an efficacy expansion phase. The recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) will be determined in the safety lead-in phase by evaluating dose-limiting toxicities. There is no primary hypothesis for this study.

  • Compassionate Use Study of Tenalisib (RP6530)

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Tenalisib has been evaluated as an investigational new drug in number of early clinical studies in patients with relapsed/refractory hematological malignancies and demonstrated acceptable safety and promising efficacy in these patients. Since these advanced relapsed/refractory patients have limited therapeutic options, it is reasonable to continue Tenalisib in responding patients post completion of their participation in previous clinical studies.

  • Cord Blood Transplant With Dilanubicel for the Treatment of HIV Positive Hematologic Cancers

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This phase II trial studies the side effects of a cord blood transplant using dilanubicel and to see how well it works in treating patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive hematologic (blood) cancers. After a cord blood transplant, the immune cells, including white blood cells, can take a while to recover, putting the patient at increased risk of infection. Dilanubicel consists of blood stem cells that help to produce mature blood cells, including immune cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and thiotepa, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Total body irradiation is a type of whole-body radiation. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a cord blood transplant with dilanubicel may help to kill any cancer cells that are in the body and make room in the patient's bone marrow for new stem cells to grow and reduce the risk of infection.

  • NKTR-255 in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma & Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Patients will receive intravenous (IV) NKTR-255 in 21 or 28 day treatment cycles. During the Part 1 dose escalation portion of the trial, patients will either receive NKTR-255 as monotherapy, NKTR-255 administered as a doublet with daratumumab subcutaneous (DARZALEX FASPRO TM), or NKTR-255 administered as a doublet with rituximab. After determination of the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of NKTR-255, NKTR-255 will be evaluated in Part 2. During the Part 2 dose expansion portion of the trial, patients will either receive NKTR-255 as monotherapy, NKTR-255 administered as a doublet with daratumumab subcutaneous (DARZALEX FASPRO TM), or NKTR-255 administered as a doublet with rituximab. This is a Phase 1 study to evaluate safety and tolerability of NKTR-255 alone and in combination with daratumumab or rituximab.

  • Tagraxofusp in Pediatric Patients With Relapsed or Refractory CD123 Expressing Hematologic Malignancies

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Tagraxofusp is a protein-drug conjugate consisting of a diphtheria toxin redirected to target CD123 has been approved for treatment in pediatric and adult patients with blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN). This trial aims to examine the safety of this novel agent in pediatric patients with relapsed/refractory hematologic malignancies. The mechanism by which tagraxofusp kills cells is distinct from that of conventional chemotherapy. Tagraxofusp directly targets CD123 that is present on tumor cells, but is expressed at lower or levels or absent on normal hematopoietic stem cells. Tagraxofusp also utilizes a payload that is not cell cycle dependent, making it effective against both highly proliferative tumor cells and also quiescent tumor cells. The rationale for clinical development of tagraxofusp for pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies is based on the ubiquitous and high expression of CD123 on many of these diseases, as well as the highly potent preclinical activity and robust clinical responsiveness in adults observed to date. This trial includes two parts: a monotherapy phase and a combination chemotherapy phase. This design will provide further monotherapy safety data and confirm the FDA approved pediatric dose, as well as provide safety data when combined with chemotherapy. The goal of this study is to improve survival rates in children and young adults with relapsed hematological malignancies, determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of tagraxofusp given alone and in combination with chemotherapy, as well as to describe the toxicities, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamic properties of tagraxofusp in pediatric patients. About 54 children and young adults will participate in this study. Patients with Down syndrome will be included in part 1 of the study.

    This is a prospective non-therapeutic study, assessing the long-term toxicity of pediatric HCT for hematologic malignancies. This study is a collaboration between the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC), the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR), the National Marrow Transplant Program (NMDP) and the Resource for Clinical Investigation in Blood and Marrow Transplantation (RCI-BMT) of the CIBMTR. The study will enroll pediatric patients who undergo myeloablative HCT for hematologic malignancies at PBMTC sites.

  • Study of Thiotepa and TEPA Drug Exposure in Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Patients

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Thiotepa is a chemotherapy drug used extensively in bone marrow transplantation. Thiotepa is a prodrug that undergoes metabolic conversion in the liver by CYP2B6 and CYP3A4 to its primary active metabolite, TEPA. The goal of this study is to determine what causes some children to have different drug concentrations of thiotepa and TEPA in their bodies and if drug levels are related to whether or not a child experiences severe side-effects during their bone marrow transplant. The hypothesis is that certain clinical and genetic factors cause changes in thiotepa and TEPA drug levels in pediatric bone marrow transplant patients and that high levels may cause severe side-effects.
