Protocol

PANSTAT: A Phase I Dose Finding Study Of Panobinostat In Children With Refractory Hematologic Malignancies

Diseases

Leukemias / Lymphomas : Relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL], acute myelogenous leukemia [AML], Hodgkin disease [HD] and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas [NHL]

Description


This is a phase I study. In a phase I study, drugs are tested to the highest dose that can be safely given. Drugs are given at gradually increasing dosages until there are unacceptable side effects. The goal of this Phase I study is to find out the dose of panobinostat that can be safely given to children with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL], acute myelogenous leukemia [AML], Hodgkin disease [HD] and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas [NHL].

This is a study of an investigational drug called panobinostat. Panobinostat is considered investigational because it has not been approved in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or in any other country. Panobinostat changes genes found in cells causing them to stop growing and die. Panobinostat has been used in several hundred adults who had leukemia, HD, NHL and other solid tumors. Panobinostat has not been given to children.
