Clinical Trials

Clinical research is at the heart of all medical advances, identifying new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease. If you have a bone marrow failure disease, you may want to consider taking part in a clinical trial, also called a research study.

Low Dose Danazol for the Treatment of Telomere Related Diseases

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Thursday, March 1, 2018 to Monday, February 28, 2022
Disease(s): aplastic anemia
Age Group: 3 years and older
DNA is a structure in the body. It contains data about how the body develops and works. Telomeres are found on the end of chromosomes in DNA. Some people with short telomeres or other gene changes can develop diseases of the bone marrow, lung, and liver. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are studying if the medication danazol can be used to treat people with short telomere disease who also have bone marrow failure, liver, or lung disease.In recent studies, danazol, at high doses, showed a positive influence on telomere length. Additional research is needed to learn more...

Optimizing Haploidentical Aplastic Anemia Transplantation (CHAMP)

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Friday, May 19, 2017 to Tuesday, February 1, 2022
Disease(s): aplastic anemia
Age Group: up to 76 years
Assess overall survival (OS) at 1 year post-hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) from a haploidentical marrow donor in patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA).

PEGASUS: A Phase III Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of APL-2 in Patients With PNH

Status(es): Completed
Study Date(s): Thursday, June 14, 2018
Disease(s): paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH)
Age Group: 18 years and older
The purpose of this study is to establish the efficacy and safety of APL-2 compared to eculizumab in patients with PNH who continue to have Hb levels <10.5 g/dL despite treatment with eculizumab (Soliris®). This study will enroll approximately 70 subjects around the globe to compare APL-2 to eculizumab treatment. All subjects who qualify will receive APL-2.

Personalized Adoptive Cellular Therapy Targeting MDS Stem Cell Neoantigens (PACTN)

Status(es): Active, not recruiting
Study Date(s): Thursday, February 1, 2018 to Tuesday, December 1, 2020
Disease(s): myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
Age Group: 18 years and older
Patients with higher risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) who fail current approved therapy or become refractory, have few therapeutic options other than bone marrow transplant, which may not be an option due to age, infirmity or lack of a donor. This is a Phase 1 open label, dose escalation clinical trial of Personalized, Adoptive immunotherapy by Cytotoxic T cells that are targeted to patient-specific cancer cell Neoantigens (PACTN) for such patients. It’s primary goal is to learn the safety and tolerability of PACTN infusion and secondarily, if PACTN show signs of being effective. The...

SELECT-MDS-1, A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study of Tamibarotene Plus Azacitidine Versus Placebo Plus Azacitidine in Newly Diagnosed, RARA-positive Adult Patients With Higher-risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Monday, February 8, 2021 to Monday, July 10, 2023
Disease(s): myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
Age Group: 18 years and older
This study compares the efficacy of tamibarotene (formerly SY-1425) in combination with azacitidine to azacitidine in combination with placebo in participants who are Retinoic Acid Receptor Alpha (RARA) positive, and newly diagnosed with higher-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), and who have not received treatment for this diagnosis. The primary goal of the study is to compare the complete remission rate between the two treatment arms. A subset of participants have MDS characterized by an overexpression of the RARA gene. A blood test will be used to identify participants with RARA-positive...

Sirolimus (Rapamune ) for Relapse Prevention in People With Severe Aplastic Anemia Responsive to Immunosuppressive Therapy

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Monday, December 19, 2016 to Thursday, August 31, 2023
Disease(s): aplastic anemia
Age Group: 2 years and older
People with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) do not make enough red and white blood cells, and/or platelets. Their body's immune system stops the bone marrow from making these cells. The treatment cyclosporine leads to better blood counts. But when this treatment is stopped, the disease may return in 1 in 3 people. The drug sirolimus may help by suppressing the immune system.

Study of PTC299 in Relapsed/Refractory Acute Leukemias

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Monday, October 29, 2018 to Wednesday, November 25, 2020
Disease(s): acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Age Group: 18 years and older
This is an open-label, non-randomized, Phase 1b study to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) profiles, and preliminary evidence of antitumor activity of PTC299 and the metabolite, O-desmethyl PTC299, in participants with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who have exhausted standard available therapies known to provide clinical benefit. The study is designed as a series of cohort-based dose escalations. For each cohort, a minimum of 3 evaluable participants with PK and safety data will be assessed. Additional participants will be recruited if additional PK data are...

The National Myelodysplastic Syndromes Natural History Study

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Friday, April 1, 2016 to Wednesday, September 1, 2021
Disease(s): myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
Age Group: 18 years and older
Multi-center study enrolling patients suspected or newly diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myelodysplastic syndromes/myeloproliferative neoplasms (MDS/MPN) overlap disorder, or idiopathic cytopenia of undetermined significance (ICUS).  Participants will be followed long term.  Clinical data, blood, and tissue samples will be collected to establish a biorepository to facilitate the study of the natural history of MDS.
