To characterize the safety and tolerability of 1) MBG453 as a single agent or in combination with PDR001 or 2) PDR001 and/or MBG453 in combination with decitabine in AML and high risk MDS patients, and to identify recommended doses for future studies.

The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is committed to improving patient experience; this research is being undertaken to try to develop a novel treatment for patients with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML). Researchers aim to develop a new therapy which uses a patient's own immune cells called T cells to treat AML. In this study, numbers and properties of T cells which can be collected from the blood of patients with AML at various points throughout their treatment will be investigated. Blood samples will be collected at the same time as the patient's bone marrow test. If patients need further bone marrow tests during their course of treatment to assess the status of disease, the research team would ask that additional samples are taken at the same time as the bone marrow and blood will be collected at the same time as the routine blood draw. Following collection of blood samples,...

International Randomised Phase III Clinical Trial in Children with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia - Incorporating an Embedded Dose Finding Study for Gemtuzumab Ozogamicin in Combination with Induction Chemotherapy MyeChild 01 is an international phase III clinical trial in children with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML); a disease with a significant mortality. It will compare two induction chemotherapy regimens: mitoxantrone and cytarabine (current standard treatment) with liposomal daunorubicin and cytarabine. This will test liposomal daunorubicin, which is believed to be less cardiotoxic than similar conventional drugs, although this is unproven. Patients responding well to induction chemotherapy are eligible for a randomisation of two consolidation regimens: high dose cytarabine (current standard treatment) or fludarabine and cytarabine (FLA); a regimen commonly used in patients with relapsed disease, testing whether FLA is more effective in front line therapy than standard consolidation treatment. Patients with cytogenetic features associated with a higher risk of relapse and those responding...

Relapse (the chance of disease coming back after treatment) is very high in acute myeloid leukaemia even after  curative approaches with intensive chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation. The bone marrow  microenvironment which includes the stromal cells (MSC) surrounding the blood cells/leukaemia cells is thought to  be a key player in chemotherapy resistance and acts as a sanctuary site for minimal residual disease (MRD) from  which relapse may occur. Once MRD is detectable, frank relapse is likely within a short time-frame affording  insufficient time for effective salvage interventions. In addition, a large proportion of patients there is no informative  MRD marker thus disease relapse can occur with little warning. In this study, we aim to investigate the role of patient  MSC in protecting AML cells at different stages of treatment including post chemotherapy and after stem cell  transplantation. By developing a 3D dynamic model of leukaemia-stroma interactions which can better mimic...
