ALLR18: A Phase II Study of Therapy for Pediatric Relapsed or Refractory Precursor B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and Lymphoma


Leukemias / Lymphomas : Relapsed or refractory precursor B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and lymphoma


Participants who have B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) that has either come back after treatment, or did not go into remission with treatment are invited to take part in this phase II study. When ALL or NHL does not go into remission or if it comes back, it can be difficult to treat. In this study, all patients will get chemotherapy and specially selected cells (natural-killer cells) from the blood of a donor (usually a parent or close relative). Some patients may also get a stem cell transplant depending on the characteristics of their disease.
