SCCA Lymphoma Clinical Trials

DCDS4501A for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (FH 2501)
An Open-Label, Multicenter, Phase I Trial of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Escalating Doses of DCDS4501A in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory B-Cell Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Phase I FH 2501

This is a Phase I, multicenter, open-label, dose-escalation study of DCDS4501A administered as a single agent by IV infusion to patients with relapsed or refractory hematologic malignancies.

Treatment will be administered on an outpatient basis at SCCA with IV infusion. The first infusion takes 90 minutes with a 90-minute observation. Subsequent infusions will take 30 minutes followed by a 30-minute observation (provided the first infusion is well tolerated). Infusions will be once a day every 21 days, with several additional visits for labs and follow up.  A total of eight treatments will be given initially, after which patients may qualify to receive an additional six months of treatment if they respond to treatment. Patients will be treated on this study at SCCA. There are some time limits for how recent past treatments may have occurred, but nothing too restrictive.
