Early Access Programme to provide treatment access to moxetumomab pasudotox for eligible patients with relapsed/refractory hairy cell leukemia
Condition or disease
Relapsed/Refractory Hairy Cell Leukemia
Drug: Moxetumomab Pasudotox
Multicentre Early Access Programme, designed to provide treatment access to moxetumomab pasudotox for eligible patients with relapsed/refractory hairy cell leukemia who are at least 18 years of age, have adequate organ function and are Pseudomonas-immunotoxin naïve. Patients will be administered moxetumomab pasudotox on Days 1, 3 and 5 of each 28-day cycle until documentation of CR or for up to 6 cycles, progressive disease (PD), initiation of alternate therapy or unacceptable toxicity.

Females of childbearing potential who are sexually active with a nonsterilized male partner must use a highly effective method of contraception prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation, and must agree to continue using such precautions for 4 months after completion of moxetumomab pasudotox administration; cessation of contraception after this point should be discussed with a responsible physician. Periodic abstinence, the rhythm method, and the withdrawal method are not acceptable methods of contraception.

Active second malignancy requiring treatment other than minor resection of indolent cancers like basal cell and squamous skin cancers. 8. Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including but not limited to ongoing or active infection, Symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, uncontrolled hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, malaria infection, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements. 9.
