Full TitleInotuzumab Ozogamicin Post-Transplant for Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Inotuzumab ozogamicin is a drug used to treat acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) that has relapsed. Doctors wonder if inotuzumab ozogamicin can be used to prevent the return of ALL after stem cell transplantation. In this study, researchers will find the highest dose of inotuzumab ozogamicin that can be given safely in people who had a stem cell transplant for ALL and have a high risk of cancer recurrence.
Inotuzumab ozogamicin is an antibody attached to a chemotherapy drug. The antibody attaches to a protein on ALL cells called CD22. Once attached, the chemotherapy enters the cancer cell, causing the cancer cell to die. Inotuzumab ozogamicin is given intravenously (by vein).
