The main purpose of this study is : To establish which number of doses of gemtuzumab ozogamicin (up to a maximum of 3 doses) is tolerated and can be safety delivered in combination with cytarabine plus mitoxantrone or liposomal daunorubicin in induction To compare mitoxantrone (anthracenedione) & cytarabine with liposomal daunorubicin (anthracycline) & cytarabine as induction therapy. (Randomisation 1 (R1) closed early to recruitment on 8th September 2017, due to liposomal daunorubicin manufacturing issues resulting in unavailability of the drug.) To compare a single dose of gemtuzumab ozogamicin with the optimum tolerated number of doses of gemtuzumab ozogamicin (identified by the dose-finding study) when combined with induction chemotherapy. To compare two consolidation regimens: high dose cytarabine (HD Ara-C) and fludarabine & cytarabine (FLA) in standard risk patients. To compare the toxicity and effectiveness of two haemopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) conditioning regimens of different intensity: conventional myeloablative conditioning (MAC) with...

The current national acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) trial in adults investigated whether a low (reduced) intensity chemotherapy regimen prior to transplant could improve the outcome of patients with ALL who are over 40 years of age. The results (60% 2 year survival) are very encouraging but patients who come to transplant with small amounts of 'residual' disease had less good outcomes. The goal of this trial is to see if a slightly stronger chemotherapy regimen (involving total body irradiation, (TBI)) can improve results by reducing the chance of the disease coming back (relapsing) without increasing the chance of not surviving the transplant. Up to 242 patients will be 'randomised' to the trial to receive either the established chemotherapy of fludarabine and melphalan or cyclophosphamide and TBI to compare the outcomes between the two treatment regimens. Other measures to reduce relapse will be the earlier use of donor white cell infusions...

The AML18 Trial will evaluate several relevant therapeutic questions in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML), as defined by the WHO, and High Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome. The trial is primarily designed for patients over 60 years considered fit for an intensive chemotherapeutic approach, but younger patients who may not be considered suitable for the concurrent NCRI AML Trial for younger patients may also enter. Patients for whom intensive chemotherapy is not thought suitable may enter the concurrent NCRI trial of less intensive therapy (LI1). Approximately 1600 patients will be recruited. At entry, a randomisation will compare a standard chemotherapy schedule DA (Daunorubicin/Ara-C) combined with 1 dose of Mylotarg (gemtuzumab ozogamicin, or GO) in course 1 against CPX-351. Patients who have known adverse risk cytogenetics (using Grimwade 2010 classification favourable/intermediate/adverse) at diagnosis may enter a Phase 2 evaluation of the combination of Vosaroxin plus Decitabine. Patients who achieve complete remission (CR) and who...

PETReA: A study to find out whether a PET-CT scan can help to tell who needs to have rituximab after the initial treatment for lymphoma. Follicular Lymphoma is a type of non Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Doctors usually put NHL into 2 groups, depending on how likely they are to grow and spread. The 2 groups are low grade and high grade NHL. Follicular lymphoma is a type of low grade NHL. For follicular lymphoma, you usually have treatment with a combination of cancer drugs. You might have one of the following: R-CHOP R-CVP bendamustine and rituximab (BR) This is called the induction treatment. After the induction treatment, you might have rituximab (R) alone. This is the maintenance phase. But having more treatment with rituximab doesn’t help everyone with follicular lymphoma. Doctors would like to know who needs to have rituximab after their initial treatment (induction). In this study, they are looking...

ALL-RIC:A trial comparing treatments for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia Doctors are looking for new ways to treat people with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) to stop the leukaemia coming back. In this trial, they are comparing a usual treatment with a new combination of treatment. The usual (standard) treatment in this trial is a combination of drugs called FMA. It includes: •fludarabine – a chemotherapy drug •melphalan – a chemotherapy drug •alemtuzumab – a targeted drug The new combination of treatment includes: •cyclophosphamide – a chemotherapy drug •alemtuzumab – a targeted drug •radiotherapy to the whole body (total body irradiation or TBI) Everyone then goes on to have a stem cell transplant with stem cells from another person (an allogeneic stem cell transplant). The chemotherapy and radiotherapy in this trial are low intensity. This is to reduce the possible complications of a transplant. We know from early research that the new combination...

Conditions where lymphocytes have become cancerous are called lymphoproliferative disorders and include Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) Mantle cell lymphoma Follicular lymphoma Hairy cell leukaemia Splenic lymphoma with villous lymphocytes Doctors want to find out more about these cancerous cells. In this study you will give samples of blood and any extra bone marrow or tissue you may have removed during routine procedures. You will also give a sample of spit (saliva). Researchers will look at both abnormal and normal cells in these samples. They will look for genes, including a particular gene called the ‘immunoglobulin gene’ that help the cancer cell to survive. And, for other gene and chromosome changes that may in future help them predict the outcome of these diseases. The aim of this study is to understand more about how changes to certain genes, proteins and sugars could affect how these diseases develop. This may help develop...

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...
