Research and Clinical Trials

Lymphoid Leukemia 

Brief Description PrincipalĀ Investigator
The purpose of this study is to establish a mechanism to bank specimens of tumor cells and host germline DNA from patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or non-Hodgkin lymphoma at first and subsequent relapse. Kaplan, Joel 
To provide a risk classification scheme for all patients with newly diagnosed ALL, which will be used to
assign treatment on Children‟s Oncology Group (COG) frontline ALL treatment studies. To capture classification data for correlative studies accompanying current COG ALL treatment protocols.
Kaplan, Joel 
This partially randomized phase III clinical trial is studying different combinations of risk-adapted chemotherapy regimens and their side effects and comparing how well they work in treating younger patients with newly diagnosed standard-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Kaplan, Joel 
This randomized phase III trial is studying how well combination chemotherapy works in treating young patients with newly diagnosed high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia, testing Clofarabine (IND#73789, NSC#606869) in the very-high risk stratum. Kaplan, Joel 
Primary:
To collect high quality specimens from patients with hematologic disorders and normal volunteers.
Exploratory:
Future specimen analyses will be performed to determine the differences between sick and normal cells. Data used for these comparisons will include, but are not limited to: gene expression data, DNA, RNA, epigenetics, proteomics, metabolomics, and pathway analysys.
Avalos, Belinda 
To determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) and/or tolerable dose of escalating doses of clofarabine starting from 20mg/m2/day to 40mg/m2/day from Day 1 to Day 5 in combination with mitoxantrone 12mg/m2/day on Day 3-6 as reinduction therapy for children, adolescents and young adults with poor risk refractory/relapsed acute leukemia or high grade NHL. Oesterheld, Javier 
Nelarabine has shown significant activity in patients with T-cell malignancies. This study will determine the safety and maximum tolerated dose of the combination of nelarabine, cyclophosphamide and etoposide in patients with first bone marrow relapse of T-ALL, or first relapse of T-LL.


Oesterheld, Javier 
This is a pilot study using decitabine and vorinostat before and during chemotherapy with vincristine, dexamethasone, mitoxantrone, and peg-asparaginase in pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
