This study uses a drug called dasatinib to produce an anti-cancer effect called large granular lymphocyte cellular expansion. Large granular lymphocytes are blood cells known as natural killer cells that remove cancer cells. Researchers think that dasatinib may cause large granular lymphocyte expansion to happen in patients who have received a blood stem cell transplant (SCT) between 3 to 15 months after the blood SCT. In this research study, researchers want to find how well dasatinib can be tolerated, the best dose to take of dasatinib and to estimate how often large granular lymphocytic cellular expansion happens at the best dose of dasatinib.

Further study details as provided by Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) graded according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4 [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
  • Maximum tolerated dose (MTD)graded according to the NCI CTCAE version 4 [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Defined as highest dose at which no more than one of dose limiting toxicity (DLT) is observed (among the first 6 patients treated and evaluable for toxicity for the purpose of cohort dose escalation decisions).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of large granular lymphocytes (LGL) lymphocytosis [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    95% confidence intervals estimated.

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: May 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dasatinib
This is a phase 1 dose escalation study, using a standard 3+3 design. Dasatinib is administered orally once daily in the outpatient setting. The starting dose of dasatinib is 20 mg daily. The increment of dose escalation is 20 mg per dose level. Thus, there will be 5 dose levels (20 mg, 40 mg, 60 mg, 80 mg and 100 mg, respectively) with 3 patients in each cohort. Patients will continue on dasatinib for 6 months
Drug: Dasatinib
Patients receive dasatinib PO every day (QD) for 6 months.
Other Names:
  • BMS-354825
  • Sprycel

    • Women with a positive pregnancy test
    • Sexually active fertile men not using effective birth control if their partners are WOCBP
  • Medical history and concurrent diseases:
  • No malignancy (other than the one treated in this study) which required radiotherapy or systemic treatment within the past 5 years
  • Concurrent medical condition which may increase the risk of toxicity, including:

    • Pleural or pericardial effusion of any grade at the time of screening for study
    • Cardiac symptoms; any of the following should be considered for exclusion:

      • Uncontrolled angina, congestive heart failure or myocardial infarction (MI) (within 6 months)

    • Diagnosed congenital bleeding disorders (e.g., von Willebrand's disease)* Diagnosed acquired bleeding disorder within one year (e.g., acquired anti-factor VIII antibodies)
    • Ongoing or recent (=< 3 months) significant gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Any previous history of >= grade 3 toxicity to dasatinib
  • Prohibited treatments and or therapies
  • Category I drugs that are generally accepted to have a risk of causing torsades de pointes including: (patients must discontinue drug 7 days prior to starting dasatinib):
