Protocol

ALLBC: A phase II a, Single-Arm, Open-Label Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of the humanized anti-CD19 antibody MOR00208 in Adult Patients with Relapsed/Refractory B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL)

Diseases

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

Description

The drug investigated in this study is called MOR00208. It is an investigational drug which is being developed to slow down the spread of tumor cells by using a new way to kill them.

MOR00208 is a monoclonal antibody which is a type of immunotherapy. It uses specific antibodies to destroy cancer cells. This type of therapy relies on the body’s own immune system to fight the cancer, rather than attacking the cells with chemotherapy or radiation. Antigens are cell surface markers that are produced in every type of cell of the body and also in bacteria and viruses. These markers are different in every cell type, so the body can identify them. Antibodies are designed to bind to antigens, like fitting two puzzle pieces together. Monoclonal antibodies are large groups of antibodies that only bind to one type of antigen. The study drug MOR00208 is a monoclonal antibody that binds to the human surface antigen CD19. The study drug is being tested in the treatment of B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
