SCCA Lymphoma Clinical Trials

Brentuximab Vedotin for Relapsed or Refractory CD30+ Lymphoma (FH 7808)
A Pilot Study of Weekly Brentuximab Vedotin in Patients With CD30+ Malignancies Refractory to Every >= 3 Week Brentuximab Vedotin
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Recruiting Lymphoma N/A FH 7808

This pilot clinical trial studies brentuximab vedotin in treating patients with relapsed or refractory cluster of differentiation (CD)30+ lymphoma. Biological therapies, such as brentuximab vedotin, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing.
