Clinical Trials Report for March 2015

We have highlighted some clinical trials currently recruiting patients. Each has a specific purpose related to aplastic anemia, MDS, or PNH. Should you consider a clinical trial?  Ask your doctor or contact the study coordinators for further information. Learn more in the Clinical Trials section.

If you only want to see studies that are currently recruiting patients, select that option from the “recruitment” line at the beginning of the advanced search. To locate a clinical trial in your state, use the “advanced search” feature. Under locations, select your state(s) and your country.

Reduced Intensity Conditioning Using CD3+/CD19+ Depletion for Non Malignant Transplantable Diseases This is a Phase II trial to determine the ability of a reduced intensity conditioning regimen to allow successful engraftment with CD3+ /CD19+ depleted peripheral stem cell grafts from mismatched donors. There are two conditioning regimens depending upon patient diagnosis and age.

This study is being conducted at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, PA

Phase I/II Trial to Investigate BI 836858 in Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Phase I: To investigate maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics, exploratory biomarker and efficacy of BI 836858 monotherapy in patients with low or intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) with symptomatic anemia. Phase II: To investigate safety and efficacy of BI 836858 plus Best Supportive Care compared to Best Supportive Care alone in low or intermediate-1 risk MDS patients with symptomatic anemia without a deletion 5q cytogenetic abnormality.

This study is being conducted in Cleveland OH.

Phase II Decitabine (DAC) Versus Azacitidine (AZA) in Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) The goal of this clinical research study is to compare how 2 different drugs, decitabine and azacitidine, when given on a shorter than standard dosing schedule, may help to control MDS. The safety of each study drug given on these schedules will also be studied.

This study is being conducted in FL, MD, MA, NY, OH and TX

A Dose Escalation and Cohort Expansion Study of TEN-010 in Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Myelodysplastic Syndrome TEN-010 is a small molecule, bromodomain and extra-terminal domain (BET) bromodomain inhibitor. This study is designed to characterize the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of TEN-010 in patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (RR-AML) and hypomethylating agent (HMA)-refractory myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). In addition, this trial will assess response to treatment using International Working Group (IWG) response criteria. This study will be conducted in two parts: dose escalation and dose expansion. For dose escalation (Part A), a standard "3+3" design will be used in which successive cohorts of three or more patients with RR-AML or HMA-refractory MDS will be treated at escalating doses until a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is identified. For the dose expansion part of the study (Part B), patients will be treated with TEN-010 at the MTD (or the highest dose tested if the MTD is not defined) to further characterize its safety, pharmacokinetics, and clinical response.

This study is being conducted in NY.

A Phase I Study to Assess the Safety APL-2 as an Add-On to Standard of Care in Subjects With PNH This study will be the initial exploration of APL-2 in patients with PNH. The assessments of the safety, tolerability, PK, and PD following administration of single and multiples doses of APL-2 will guide decisions to further develop the drug. This study is being conducted at the University of Louisville, KY
