QUESTIONS AND OBJECTIVES OF ALL-MB 2015 STUDY 1. Will the new risk group stratification (especially of T-ALL) to improve overall and event-free survival? 2. Will the new protocol is effective and feasible in patients older than 15 years, and especially in young adults? 3. Whether the intermittent dexamethasone administration in induction will result in a decrease in toxicity and mortality without loss of efficacy? 4. Whether the methylprednisolone administration as basic glucocorticoids during induction, consolidation and maintenance therapy will lead to decrease of severe infections and early mortality rate, improve survival and therapy compliance in adolescents and young adults with B-precursor ALL? 5. Whether the administration of Bortezomib in patients with B-precursor ALL with initial WBC≥100,000/µl will improve treatment outcome? 6. Whether the administration of Idarubicin instead Daunorubicin in low-risk T-ALL patients and two-phase induction in intermediate-risk T-ALL patients will reduce relapse rate and improve survival?
This randomized clinical trial studies how well a high-intensity intervention parenting program works in improving learning and school functioning in Latino children with acute leukemia or lymphoblastic lymphoma. A high-intensity intervention program may help doctors to see whether training parents or caregivers in specific parenting skills and "pro-learning" behaviors will result in better learning and school outcomes for Latino children with acute leukemia or lymphoblastic lymphoma. It is not yet known if a high-intensity intervention program is more beneficial than a standard of care lower intensity parenting intervention.
The cure rate for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has increased significantly in recent decades and expected cure rates now exceed 85%. In recent years, Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor(TKI) has improved outcome of Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph+)ALL . But in some high risk groups, The prognosis of patients is still very bad and the relapse rate is high. Clearly, new therapies are urgently needed to prevent and /or treat relapsed ALL.
QUESTIONS AND OBJECTIVES OF ALL-MB-2008 STUDY 1. Whether the early PEG-asparaginase in induction will lead to the earlier achievement of remission, improvement of days 8 and 15 responses leading to an earlier reconstitution of bone marrow and immunocompetence, decrease of severe infections and early mortality rate? 2. Whether the use of PEG-asparaginase in induction will allow to avoid the anthracyclines in standard risk group patients and to reduce treatment myelotoxicity? 3. Whether the administration of 9 doses of PEG-asparaginase 1,000 U/m2 instead of 18 doses of E.coli L-asparaginase 5,000 U/m2 in standard risk patients will improve treatment outcome? 4. Whether the administrations of high dose methotrexate (2 g/m2 in 24 hours) during 1-st consolidation in intermediate risk patients will result in decrease of central nervous system relapse incidence and improvement of event-free and overall survival? Whether the increase of 6-mercaptopurine starting dose up to 50 mg/m2 in 1-st consolidation phase (instead of 25 mg/m2) will decrease in relapse risk, but would not be accompanied with enhanced toxicity? 5. Is it possible to completely avoid the cranial irradiation in intermediate risk patients? In some subgroup of intermediate risk patients? Is it enough to control neuroleukemia in these patients to introduce additional TIT in the consolidation phase of treatment? How will change the possible late effects in these patients according to the third arm of randomization? 6. Will the new risk group stratification to improve overall and event-free survival?
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies giving acupuncture in reducing nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Pressing and stimulating nerves at an acupuncture point on the inside of the wrist may help control nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy.
This phase II trial studies how well sirolimus, cyclosporine and mycophenolate mofetil works in preventing graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) in patients with blood cancer undergoing donor peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It may also stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving total-body irradiation together with sirolimus, cyclosporine, and mycophenolate mofetil before and after transplant may stop this from happening.
This research study is studying lestaurtinib with or with chemotherapy in samples from young patients with leukemia. Studying the effects of lestaurtinib with or without chemotherapy in cell samples from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about the effects of this treatment on cancer cells. It may also help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer.
This study is collecting and storing malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological samples from young patients with cancer. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and bone marrow from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.
This laboratory study is evaluating how well dactinomycin and vincristine work in treating young patients with cancer. Studying samples of blood and urine in the laboratory from patients with cancer may help doctors learn how dactinomycin and vincristine affect the body and how patients will respond to treatment.
This clinical trial is studying the side effects of Erwinia asparaginase and what happens to the drug in the body in treating young patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who are allergic to PEG-asparaginase. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as Erwinia asparaginase, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
