Phase II Venetoclax, Obinutuzumab and Bendamustine in High Tumor Burden Follicular Lymphoma as Front Line Therapy

Lymphoma

Patients with high tumor burden, low grade follicular lymphoma that has never been treated, will receive venetoclax in combination with obinutuzumab and bendamustine. Venetoclax is an oral Bcl-2 family protein inhibitor. It targets the B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) protein, which supports cancer cell growth and is overexpressed in many patients with follicular lymphoma. Venetoclax may help to slow down the growth of cancer or may cause cancer cells to die. The purpose of this study is to see whether adding venetoclax to obinutuzumab and bendamustine improves the response (the tumor shrinks or disappears) in patients with follicular lymphoma. As of 9 / 5 / 2018, a higher than expected incidence of tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) was experienced among patients receiving venetoclax, obinutuzumab and bendamustine on Cycle 1, Day 1 of treatment. TLS is caused by the fast breakdown of cancer cells. These patients developed an increase in some of their blood tests (uric acid, phosphorus, potassium and / or creatinine). They received a medication called rasburicase and continued with treatment. It is unclear if the TLS was due to the venetoclax or the standard treatment of obinutuzumab and bendamustine. For the remaining patients, venetoclax will start on Cycle 2, Day 1 (previously Cycle 1, Day 1).

A Study Evaluating Venetoclax in Combination With Azacitidine in Participants With Treatment-Naïve Higher-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)

Multiple Cancer Types

This is a Phase 1b, open-label, non-randomized, multicenter, dose-finding study evaluating venetoclax in combination with azacitidine in participants with treatment-naïve higher-risk MDS comprising a dose-escalation portion and a safety expansion portion.

Venetoclax and Selinexor in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory High Risk Hematologic Malignancies

Multiple Cancer Types

This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of venetoclax and selinexor and how well they work in treating patients with high risk hematologic malignancies such as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, multiple myeloma, or acute myeloid leukemia that have come back (recurrent) or do not respond to treatment (refractory). Venetoclax functions by inhibiting or slowing down a protein in the body called bcl-2, which is involved in slowing down the normal process by which old cells in the body are cleared (called apoptosis). Selinexor functions by trapping “tumor suppressing proteins” within the cell and causing the cancer cells to die or stop growing. This study examines the effects, if any, of selinexor and venetoclax on high risk hematologic malignancies and on the body, including any side-effects.

A Phase 1b Master Trial to Investigate CPX-351 in Subjects With Previously Untreated Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Leukemia

JZP025-101 is an open-label, multicenter, multi-arm, nonrandomized phase 1b master trial to determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of CPX-351 when administered in combination with various targeted agents in previously untreated subjects with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) who are fit to receive intensive chemotherapy (ICT). Subjects will be assigned to treatment arms based on results of AML mutation testing.
