Clinical Trials

Every treatment that has ever made a difference in cancer care was once a part of a clinical trial. MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is committed to offering the best treatments available today while searching for even better ones for the future. Ask your doctor if a clinical trial is right for you.

    A Randomized Double-Blind Phase III Study of Ibrutinib During and Following Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation Versus Placebo in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma of the Activated B-cell Subtype

    This randomized phase III trial studies ibrutinib to see how well it works compared to placebo when given before and after stem cell transplant in treating patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that has returned after a period of improvement (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Before transplant, stem cells are taken from patients and stored. Patients then receive high doses of chemotherapy to kill cancer cells and make room for healthy cells. After treatment, the stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Ibrutinib is a drug that may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking a protein that is needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether adding ibrutinib to chemotherapy before and after stem cell transplant may help the transplant work better in patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

  • STUDY11022

    A Phase I Open Label Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics and Preliminary Clinical Efficacy of ONO-7475 in Patients with Acute Leukemias

    Part A: The primary objective of this part of the study is to establish a safe and potentially clinically efficacious dose for further investigation in Parts B and C. The endpoints will be to monitor safety through evaluation of adverse events, changes in electroretinogram (ERG), ophthalmology examinations and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). PK analysis and efficacy evaluations will also be conducted. Part B: The primary objective of this part of the study is to establish a safe dose of the combination of ONO-7475 and azacitidine in elderly de novo AML patients. The primary endpoints are incidence, nature, and severity of AEs and SAEs of ONO-7475, clinically significant changes in electroretinogram (ERG), ophthalmology examinations and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). Part C: The primary objective of this part of the study is to establish a safe dose of ONO-7475 in ALL patients. The primary endpoints are incidence, nature, and severity of AEs and SAEs of ONO-7475, clinically significant changes in electroretinogram (ERG), ophthalmology examinations and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG).

    A Randomized Phase III Trial of Consolidation With Autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Followed by Maintenance Rituximab vs. Maintenance Rituximab Alone for Patients With Mantle Cell Lymphoma in Minimal Residual Disease-Negative First Complete Remission

    This randomized phase III trial studies rituximab after stem cell transplant and to see how well it works compared with rituximab alone in treating patients with in minimal residual disease-negative mantle cell lymphoma in first complete remission. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Giving chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant helps kill any cancer cells that are in the body and helps make room in the patient's bone marrow for new blood-forming cells (stem cells) to grow. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. More chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Giving rituximab with or without stem cell transplant may work better in treating patients with mantle cell lymphoma.

    A Randomized Phase III Study of Ibrutinib Plus Obinutuzumab Versus Ibrutinib Plus Venetoclax and Obinutuzumab in Untreated Older Patients (>/= 70 Years of Age) With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

    This phase III trial studies how well ibrutinib and obinutuzumab with or without venetoclax works in treating older patients with untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with obinutuzumab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as venetoclax work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving ibrutinib and obinutuzumab with venetoclax may work better at treating chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
