Further study details as provided by Mundipharma Research Limited:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the dose and duration of treatment for the best achievable overall response and partial responders with forodesine in relapsed B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-Cll)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess safety & tolerability of forodesine in B-CLL in vitro sensitivity to forodesine & drug combinations including forodesine of peripheral lymphocytes of patients enrolled in study & to correlate these in vitro findings with clinical response

Enrollment: 1
Study Start Date: July 2008
Study Completion Date: May 2009
Primary Completion Date: January 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
An open label, multi centre, three arm, dose finding Phase 1 trial with Forodesine as a single drug treatment in patients with relapsed CLL to establish dose and duration of treatment resulting in the best achievable response with Forodesine as a single drug treatment.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with confirmed Binet Stage B or C B-CLL as defined by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored working group who have received up to 2 previous lines of treatment, one of which was fludarabine based. The two previous treatments could have included combination therapies.
  • Patients must be ≥18 years of age, have a life expectancy of >6 months, and an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1, or 2. - Female patients must not be pregnant (as confirmed by negative pregnancy test for women of childbearing potential) and female and male patients must be willing to use effective contraception for the entire duration of treatment and 2 months thereafter.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have received more than 2 previous lines of treatment will be excluded from this study.
  • Additional groups of patients who may not participate in the study include: patients who are pregnant and/or nursing; patients on corticosteroid treatment; patients with active infection (bacterial, viral or fungal) or severe infection (WHO 4th degree) within the last 3 months; patients with total bilirubin > 2 × ULN; patients with calculated creatinine clearance <70 mL/min; patients with seropositivity for human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B virus, or hepatitis C virus; patients with any coexisting medical or psychological condition that would preclude participation in the required study procedures; patients who have participated in another clinical study <6 weeks prior to this study; or patients with a known hypersensitivity to the study medication.
