Inotuzumab Ozogamicin in Treating Younger Patients With B-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma or Relapsed or Refractory CD22 Positive B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT02981628


This phase II trial studies how well inotuzumab ozogamicin works in treating younger patients with B-lymphoblastic lymphoma or CD22 positive B acute lymphoblastic leukemia that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Inotuzumab ozogamicin is a monoclonal antibody, called inotuzumab, linked to a toxic agent called ozogamicin. Inotuzumab attaches to CD22 positive cancer cells in a targeted way and delivers ozogamicin to kill them.

Official Title

Inclusion Criteria:

   - Patients must be >= 1 year and < 22 years of age at the time of enrollment

   - Patients must have B-ALL, or previously diagnosed B lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LL),
   with >= 5% (M2 or M3) bone marrow blasts with or without extramedullary disease

      - NOTE: Relapsed patients previously diagnosed with B-lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LL)
      are eligible if they have an M2 or M3 marrow at the time of enrollment on this

   - Patients with ALL or B-LL who have M2 morphology must have local confirmatory testing
   showing >= 5% blasts by flow cytometry, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)
   testing or other molecular method

   - Leukemic blasts must demonstrate surface expression of CD22 at the time of relapse by
   local/institutional flow cytometry of a bone marrow aspirate sample; (assessment of
   CD22 using a bright fluorophore such as phycoerythrin [PE] is strongly recommended)

      - In the case of an inadequate aspirate sample (dry tap) or if bone marrow aspirate
      is unable to be performed due to patient clinical status, flow cytometry of
      peripheral blood specimen may be substituted if the patient has at least 1,000/uL
      circulating blasts; alternatively, CD22 expression may be documented by
      immunohistochemistry of a bone marrow biopsy specimen

   - Patients with one of the following:

      - Second or greater relapse;

      - Primary refractory disease with at least 2 prior induction attempts;

      - First relapse refractory to at least one prior re-induction attempt

      - Any relapse after HSCT (Cohort 1 ONLY)

Patients with Down syndrome are eligible ONLY for Cohort 1 with:

   - Any of above disease status, OR

   - First relapse with no prior re-induction attempt NOTE: Patients with Down syndrome or
   prior HSCT are NOT eligible for Cohort 2 combination therapy

   - There have been no human studies of inotuzumab ozogamicin in pregnant women and no
   reports of exposure in utero; based on nonclinical safety studies, inotuzumab
   ozogamicin has the potential to impair human male and female fertility and to
   adversely affect human embryo fetal development; women of childbearing potential
   should be advised to avoid becoming pregnant while receiving inotuzumab ozogamicin;
   there is no information regarding the presence of inotuzumab ozogamicin in human milk,
   the effects on the breast-fed infant, or the effects on milk production; because of

   breast-feed during treatment with inotuzumab ozogamicin and for at least 2 months
   after the final dose

      - Female patients of childbearing potential are not eligible unless a negative
      pregnancy test result has been obtained within 7 days prior to enrollment
