A Drug Monitoring Study on PEG-asparaginase Treatment in Children Diagnosed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia
Asparaginase is an important drug i the treatment of childhood leukaemia.
The aim of this project is to study the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and antibody development and hypersensitivity reactions during prolonged PEG-asparaginase treatment.
Study part 1) Asparaginase pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics during prolonged PEG-asparaginase treatment: A NOPHO ALL-2008 study
Study part 2) Asparagine depletion in cerebrospinal fluid: A NOPHO ALL-2008 study
Study part 3) A characterization of PEG-asparaginase hypersensitivity in children treated according to the NOPHO ALL 2008 protocol
Perspectives: New knowledge about PEG-asparaginase treatment regarding dosing, dosing interval, adverse effects and EFS, which may lead to improved future therapy
Patients: Children diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in the Nordic Countries
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||PEG-asparaginase Treatment in the NOPHO ALL-2008 Protocol: Antibody Formation, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics and Side Effects.|
- Asparagine depletion [ Time Frame: Up to 30 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Blood samples and cerebrospinal fluid samples are collected at certain timepoints during 30 weeks of treatment with PEG-asparaginase. They are analyzed for asparagine, asparaginase-enzyme activity and asparaginase-antibodies.These measures tell about the effect of the drug, PEG-asparaginase.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Blood, Cerebrospinal fluid
