Dasatinib Followed by Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Older Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

This phase II clinical trial studies how well dasatinib followed by stem cell transplant works in treating older patients with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Dasatinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Monoclonal antibodies, such as alemtuzumab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) and giving dasatinib together with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

Phase 2


Inclusion Criteria:

   - Unequivocal histologic diagnosis of ALL

   - Detection of the t(9;22)(q34;q11) or 3-way variant by metaphase cytogenetics or
   BCR-ABL positive status by molecular analysis (Q-PCR or fluorescent in situ
   hybridization [FISH]) in a Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)-approved

   - No prior therapy except up to one week of corticosteroids and/or hydroxyurea to enable
   time for the detection of t(9;22)(q34;q11) or BCR/ABL

   - Non-pregnant and non-nursing; treatment under this protocol would expose an unborn
   child to significant risks; women and men of reproductive potential should agree to
   use an effective means of birth control and contraception should continue for three
   months after the last dose of dasatinib to allow complete clearance of drug and its
   principal metabolites from the body; in women of childbearing potential, a pregnancy
   test will be required at study entry

   - Left ventricular ejection fraction >= lower limit of institutional normal

   - No myocardial infarction within 6 months

   - No ventricular tachyarrhythmia within 6 months

   - No major conduction abnormality (unless a cardiac pacemaker is present)
