Castleman’s Disease

The Castleman's Study (2366)
A Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo Controlled Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of CNTO 328 (Anti IL 6 Monoclonal Antibody) plus Best Supportive Care Compared With Best Supportive Care in Subjects With Multicentric Castleman's Disease
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Lymphoproliferative Disease Phase II 2366.00

The study is being conducted to demonstrate that CNTO 328 in combination with best supportive care is superior to best supportive care in terms of durable tumor and symptomatic response (reduction in tumor size and the symptoms for at least 18 weeks) and has an acceptable benefit risk profile in among patients with multicentric Castleman's disease.
