A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
A class of drugs that differs from other alkylating agents used clinically in that they are monofunctional and thus unable to cross-link cellular macromolecules. Among their common properties are a requirement for metabolic activation to intermediates with antitumor efficacy and the presence in their chemical structures of N-methyl groups, that after metabolism, can covalently modify cellular DNA. The precise mechanisms by which each of these drugs acts to kill tumor cells are not completely understood. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2026)

Potentiation of anti-cancer drug activity at low intratumoral pH induced by the mitochondrial inhibitor m-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) and its analogue benzylguanidine (BG). (1/304)

Tumour-selective acidification is of potential interest for enhanced therapeutic gain of pH sensitive drugs. In this study, we investigated the feasibility of a tumour-selective reduction of the extracellular and intracellular pH and their effect on the tumour response of selected anti-cancer drugs. In an in vitro L1210 leukaemic cell model, we confirmed enhanced cytotoxicity of chlorambucil at low extracellular pH conditions. In contrast, the alkylating drugs melphalan and cisplatin, and bioreductive agents mitomycin C and its derivative EO9, required low intracellular pH conditions for enhanced activation. Furthermore, a strong and pH-independent synergism was observed between the pH-equilibrating drug nigericin and melphalan, of which the mechanism is unclear. In radiation-induced fibrosarcoma (RIF-1) tumour-bearing mice, the extracellular pH was reduced by the mitochondrial inhibitor m-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) or its analogue benzylguanidine (BG) plus glucose. To simultaneously reduce the intracellular pH, MIBG plus glucose were combined with the ionophore nigericin or the Na+/H+ exchanger inhibitor amiloride and the Na+-dependent HCO3-/Cl- exchanger inhibitor 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulphonic acid (DIDS). Biochemical studies confirmed an effective reduction of the extracellular pH to approximately 6.2, and anti-tumour responses to the interventions indicated a simultaneous reduction of the intracellular pH below 6.6 for at least 3 h. Combined reduction of extra- and intracellular tumour pH with melphalan increased the tumour regrowth time to 200% of the pretreatment volume from 5.7 +/- 0.6 days for melphalan alone to 8.1 +/- 0.7 days with pH manipulation (P < 0.05). Mitomycin C related tumour growth delay was enhanced by the combined interventions from 3.8 +/- 0.5 to 5.2 +/- 0.5 days (P < 0.05), but only in tumours of relatively large sizes. The interventions were non-toxic alone or in combination with the anti-cancer drugs and did not affect melphalan biodistribution. In conclusion, we have developed non-toxic interventions for sustained and selective reduction of extra- and intracellular tumour pH which potentiated the tumour responses to selected anti-cancer drugs.  (+info)

Biosynthesis of DNA, RNA and proteins by mouse embryos cultured in the presence of a teratogenic dose of chlorambucil. (2/304)

The effect of chlorambucil on the rates of DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis in mouse embryos was investigated using a system of whole embryo culture. Embryos were isolated on the 11th day of gestation (33 +/- 3 somites) and grown in culture media for periods of 4-8 h. Reichert's membrane and most of the placental tissue was removed leaving only the amnion and visceral yolk-sac surrounding the embryo. In the presence of teratogenic doses of chlorabucil (15 mug/ml) the rate of DNA synthesis was significantly decreased at 4 and 8 h. RNA and protein synthesis were not inhibited at either of these times. A trend toward decreasing rates of protein synthesis at some time beyond 8 h was noted, but not tested.  (+info)

Chemotherapeutic options in chronic lymphocytic leukemia: a meta-analysis of the randomized trials. CLL Trialists' Collaborative Group. (3/304)

BACKGROUND: The randomized trials that evaluate the timing and intensity of initial chemotherapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) have, in general, been too small to provide separately reliable results. We compared the effects on survival of the following: a) immediate versus deferred chemotherapy for early-stage CLL and b) combination chemotherapy (e.g., cyclophosphamide and vincristine plus prednisone/prednisolone [COP] or COP plus doxorubicin [CHOP]) versus single-agent chlorambucil as first-line treatment for more advanced disease. METHODS: All relevant randomized trials, whether published or not, were sought for a collaborative meta-analysis involving centralized review of the data for each patient. RESULTS: There were 2048 patients with early disease in six trials of immediate versus deferred chemotherapy (chlorambucil or chlorambucil plus prednisone/prednisolone). The 10-year survival was slightly worse (but not statistically significantly so) with immediate chemotherapy (44% versus 47% survival; difference = -3%; 95% confidence interval [CI] = -10% to 4%). There were another 2022 patients in 10 trials of combination chemotherapy versus chlorambucil, with or without prednisone/prednisolone. The 5-year survival was 48 % in both cases (difference = 0%; 95% CI = -6% to 5%). A subgroup of six of these 10 trials involved an anthracycline-containing regimen but again overall survival appeared no better than with chlorambucil (anthracycline-based regimen: 325 deaths among 627 patients; chlorambucil: 306 deaths among 636 patients; death rate ratio = 1.07; 95% CI = 0.91-1.25; not statistically significant). CONCLUSIONS: In terms of survival, these trials support a conservative treatment strategy for CLL, i.e., no chemotherapy for most patients with early-stage disease, and single-agent chlorambucil as the first line of treatment for most patients with advanced disease, with no evidence of benefit from early inclusion of an anthracycline. This strategy will, however, need to be reconsidered as mature results become available from trials of other agents.  (+info)

Effect of Epstein-Barr virus infection on response to chemotherapy and survival in Hodgkin's disease. (4/304)

We have analyzed paraffin sections from 190 patients with histologically confirmed Hodgkin's disease (HD) for the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) using in situ hybridization to detect the EBV-encoded Epstein-Barr virus early RNAs (EBERs) and immunohistochemistry to identify latent membrane protein-1 (LMP1) expression. EBV was present in the tumor cells in 51 HD cases (27%) and was mainly confined to the mixed cellularity and nodular sclerosis subtypes. There was no difference between EBV-positive and EBV-negative HD patients with regard to age, clinical stage, presentation, and the number of alternating chemotherapy cycles of ChIVPP and PABIOE received. The complete remission rate after study chemotherapy was 80% in EBV-positive patients versus 69% in EBV-negative patients (P =.05). The 2-year failure-free survival rate was significantly better for EBV-positive patients when compared with the EBV-negative HD group (P =.02). Although 2-year and 5-year overall survival rates were better for EBV-positive HD patients, the differences were not statistically significant (P =.18 and P =.40, respectively). In conclusion, the results confirm the favorable prognostic value of EBV in the tumor cells of HD patients and suggest important differences in response to chemotherapy between EBV-positive and EBV-negative patients.  (+info)

Chlorambucil induction of HsRad51 in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. (5/304)

Our previous studies with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) have suggested that one of the mechanisms of nitrogen mustard (NM) drug resistance is increased repair of drug-induced damage. We have postulated that recombination may play a crucial role in this process. The human homologue of Rad51, (HsRad51), has homology to the RecA protein in Escherichia coli, which is implicated in recombination repair and induction of DNA repair enzymes. In this report, we have examined the expression and distribution of HsRad51 protein in lymphocytes from patients with B-CLL to see whether the expression of HsRad51 is associated with NM damage to the malignant B lymphocytes, specifically chlorambucil (CLB), which is the standard alkylating agent used to treat patients with B-CLL. We have analyzed the intracellular distribution of HsRad51 protein in these lymphocytes before and after treatment with CLB by immunofluorescence. In vitro CLB treatment induces Rad51 expression, as measured by increased immunopositive staining in all CLL samples. In the CLB-resistant CLL lymphocytes, there was a linear correlation between induction of Rad51 protein at 5.4 microM CLB and the in vitro LD50 dose of CLB. Surprisingly, although it has been reported that Rad51 is induced in S phase and only 10% of cells from cell lines expressed positive immunostaining for Rad51, our CLL lymphocytes, which were not subjected to in vitro drug exposure, were 90% positive for Rad51, despite their nonproliferative state, which suggests that there is chronic activation of the protein. Our results suggest that CLB activates HsRad51-directed recombination repair and that this process may be important in NM drug-induced cytotoxicity.  (+info)

High-dose BEAM chemotherapy with autologous haemopoietic stem cell transplantation for Hodgkin's disease is unlikely to be associated with a major increased risk of secondary MDS/AML. (6/304)

Hodgkin's disease is curable in the majority of patients, although a proportion of patients are resistant to or relapse after initial therapy. High-dose therapy with autologous stem cell support has become the standard salvage therapy for patients failing chemotherapy, but there have been reports of a high incidence of myelodysplasia/acute myeloid leukaemia (MDS/AML) following such treatment. Patients who receive such therapy form a selected group, however, who have already been subjected to other leukaemogenic factors, such as treatment with alkylating agents. In order to ascertain the true risk of MDS/AML, comparison must be made with other patients subjected to the same risks but not undergoing transplantation. We report a retrospective comparative study of 4576 patients with Hodgkin's disease from the BNLI and UCLH Hodgkin's databases, which includes 595 patients who have received a transplant. Statistical analysis including Cox's proportional hazards multivariate regression model with time-dependent covariates was employed. This analysis reveals that the risk of developing MDS/AML was dominated by three factors, namely quantity of prior therapy (relative risk [RR] 2.01, 95% confidence intervals [CI] 1.49-2.71, for each treatment block, P < 0.0001) and whether the patient had been exposed to MOPP (RR 3.61, 95% CI 1.64-7.95, P = 0.0009) or lomustine chemotherapy (RR 4.53, 95% CI 1.96-10.44, P = 0.001). Following adjustment for these factors in the multivariate model the relative risk associated with transplantation was 1.83 (95% CI 0.66-5.11, P = 0.25). This study provides no evidence of a significantly increased risk of MDS/AML associated with BEAM therapy and autologous transplantation in Hodgkin's disease. Concern over MDS/AML should not mitigate against the timely use of this treatment modality.  (+info)

The role of drug transport in resistance to nitrogen mustard and other alkylating agents in L518Y lymphoblsts. (7/304)

An investigation was undertaken of the mechanism of resistance to nitrogen mustard (HN2) and other alkylating agents, with particular emphasis on the interaction between cross-resistance and drug transport mechanisms in L5178Y lymphoblasts. Dose-survival curves demonstrated that the D0 for HN2-sensitive cells (L5178Y) treated with HN2 in vitro was 9.79 ng/ml and the D0 for HN2-resistant cells (L5178Y/HN2) was 181.11 ng/ml; thus, sensitive cells were 18.5-fold more responsive than were resistant cells and the difference was highly significant (p less than 0.001). A similar evaluation of 5 additional alkylating agents, including chlorambucil, melphalan, 1,3-bis(2-chloroethyl)-l-nitrosourea, Mitomycin C, and 2,3,5-tris(ethyleneimino)-1,4-benzoquinone, revealed that L5178Y/HN2 cells were also cross-resistant, in part, to each of these compounds. Furthermore, the degree of cross-resistance was remarkably similar; for each drug, dose-survival studies showed that HN2-resistant cells were approximately 2- to 3-fold more resistant to therapy than were sensitive cells. L5178Y/HN2 cells were also cross-resistant to cyclophosphamide in vivo; after treatment with cyclophosphamide, DBA/2 female mice that were given inoculations of L5178Y cells, but not those given transplants of L5178Y/HN2 cells, showed a significant prolongation of survival time (p less than 0.01). Transport of HN2, hydrolyzed derivative of HN2 and choline by L5178Y lymphoblasts in vitro was not competitively inhibited by any of the other alkylating agents, suggesting that transport of these compounds was by an independent mechanism. These findings suggest that the mechanism whereby L5178Y/HN2 cells are cross-resistant to other alkylating agents may involve nontransport factors and that these other drugs may bypass a major portion of HN2 resistance by using independent transport systems.  (+info)

Clinical features and treatment outcome of idiopathic membranous nephropathy in Chinese patients. (8/304)

We retrospectively studied the clinical course and treatment outcome of idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN) amongst 38 Chinese patients (25 male, 13 female, age 51.6 +/- 14.6 years, follow-up duration 58.2 +/- 51.1 months) who presented over a 10-year review period. Eight never received any form of specific treatment (group I), seven received oral corticosteroid alone for 6-9 months (group II), 17 were given corticosteroid plus cyclophosphamide for 6-12 months (group III), and six were treated with methylprednisolone alternating with chlorambucil every other month for 6 months (group IV). No untoward effect from drugs sufficient to alter the dosage used was recorded. After 6 months of treatment, over 50% of patients went into remission: a significant reduction in proteinuria (p = 0.01, 0.01, 0.02) with a corresponding rise in serum albumin levels (p = 0.01, 0.01, 0.04) was observed in groups II, III, and IV, respectively, but not in group I. During follow-up, one patient in each of groups I, III, IV, and two of group II developed renal function deterioration, which correlated with an abnormal presenting serum creatinine. In six group I and eight group III patients who have been followed for at least 5 years, there was progressive reduction in proteinuria in group III (p < 0.05), but not in group I: serum creatinine has remained unchanged in both groups. IMN runs a benign course in Chinese patients in Hong Kong, with 2.6% of patients going into end-stage renal failure during the study period. Contrary to reports in Caucasians, there is similar treatment response to steroid alone or a combination of steroid and cytotoxic agents.  (+info)

Obinutuzumab (Gazyva) plus chloramubucil outperformed rituximab (Rituxan) plus chlorambucil (Leukeran) as first-line therapy in older patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and comorbidities in the large CLL 11 trial. Final results showed that obinutuzumab/chloramubucil improved overall survival compared to chlorambucil alone and improved progression-free survival, complete response rate, and minimal residual disease status compared to chlorambucil/rituximab.. These results suggest that obinutuzumab can replace rituximab in combination with chlorambucil as first-line therapy in older patients with comorbidities. This could mean a potential decrease in the amount of chemotherapy required for an effective combination regimen, translating to less toxicity for patients, said Valentin Goede, MD, a hematologist/oncologist and gerontologist at University Hospital Cologne, Germany, who presented the results during the Plenary Session at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Society of ...

While chemotherapy is one of the most used treatments in oncology, the systemic administration of chemotherapeutics generally results in undesired damages to healthy tissues and cells, side effects such as severe nausea and leukopenia, and reduced efficacy due to multidrug resistance and poor target accessibility. The limitations of conventional chemotherapy formulation has prompted the development of alternative nanomaterials-based strategies to achieve targeted and stimuli sensitive payload delivery to reach optimal local drug concentration at tumor sites. In this study, the anticancer drug chlorambucil (Clb) was conjugated to the surface of silica coated lithium niobate (LNO) harmonic nanoparticles (HNPs) using a photocaging tether based on coumarin-4-yl methyl derivative. Upon laser pulsed femtosecond irradiation at 790 nm, the second harmonic emission from the metal oxide core induced the efficient release of Clb, with concomitant contribution from the nonlinear absorption of the coumarin (CM)

For patients with impaired renal function and/or increased comorbidity, there are at least two options for chemotherapy, namely chlorambucil or bendamustine. In direct comparisons, bendamustine has been proven to be superior to chlorambucil in terms of remission rate, the rate of complete remissions and progression-free survival [13]. In a Phase III study (CLL11 protocol of the GCLLSG) it was shown that the addition of rituximab or obinutuzumab improved response rate and progression-free survival compared to a chlorambucil monotherapy [14]. Combining obinutuzumab and chlorambucil also improved overall survival compared to chlorambucil alone, but compared to rituximab and chlorambucil there was no significant difference regarding overall survival time, see Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia - Study results.. The results of a randomised comparison between chlorambucil / rituximab and bendamustine / rituximab (MaBLe Trial) have not been made available yet.. In another Phase III trial in patients ...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a Supplemental Biologic License Application (sBLA) for the use of Arzerra® (ofatumumab) in combination with chlorambucil in previously untreated patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) for whom fludarabine-based therapy is considered inappropriate.. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common form of adult leukemia. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 15,000 people will be diagnosed and 4,580 will die from CLL this year. Currently, there are approximately 95,000 people in the United States living with CLL.. CLL is characterized by the production of atypical lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are specialized immune cells that exist in two forms: B- and T-cells. These cells are produced in the bone marrow and each serves a specific function in aiding the body to fight infection. The large majority of CLL cases involve mature B-lymphocytes that tend to live much longer than normal. B-lymphocytes accumulate in ...
Chlorambucil is helpful in multiple Chemotherapy protocols as well as Immune Mediated conditions. Chlorambucil is typically given daily or every other day or every third day.
Six female patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (S.L.E.) have been treated with chlorambucil. In five the decision was taken after failure by corticosteroids to control progressive renal disease in the face of unacceptable corticosteroid toxicity. After the introduction of chlorambucil renal function improved and all patients remain well six, six, five, three, and two-and-a-half years later, respectively. On renal biopsy five had focal proliferative glomerulonephritis. Repeat biopsy in two cases showed quantitative improvement. The sixth patient was treated with chlorambucil because of failure by corticosteroids to control peripheral vascular lesions and haemolysis and she remains well four years later. In four patients is it probable that amenorrhoea was related to chlorambucil treatment, but there were no other important side effects although one patient developed a degree of marrow depression during treatment. Chlorambucil may hold advantages over the immunosuppressive drugs normally ...
CHLORAMBUCIL PLUS RITUXIMAB AS FRONT-LINE THERAPY IN ELDERLY/UNFIT PATIENTS AFFECTED BY B-CELL CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA: RESULTS OF A SINGLE-CENTRE EXPERIENCE.
Basel, 15 June 2018 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced data from the final analysis of the CLL11 study evaluating Gazyva®/Gazyvaro® (obinutuzumab)-based treatment in previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) which will be presented during the Presidential Symposium at the 23rd European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Congress, 14 - 17 June, in Stockholm. After a follow-up of nearly five years, final results showed clinically meaningful improvements with Gazyva/Gazyvaro plus chlorambucil across multiple endpoints, including progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS), when compared head-to-head with MabThera®/Rituxan® (rituximab) plus chlorambucil. Gazyva/Gazyvaro-based treatment reduced the risk of death by 24% compared to MabThera/Rituxan-based treatment (median OS not reached vs. 73.1 months, HR= 0.76; 95% CI 0.60-0.97; p,0.0245). These new data add to the growing body of evidence for the OS benefit with Gazyva/Gazyvaro in first-line CLL ...

Oral alkylating drugs, alone and in combination therapy with steroids, have been extensively evaluated in the upfront treatment of WM. The greatest experience with oral alkylator therapy has been with chlorambucil, which has been administered on both a continuous (i.e. daily dose schedule) as well as an intermittent schedule. Patients receiving chlorambucil on a continuous schedule typically receive 0.1 mg/kg per day, whilst on the intermittent schedule patients will typically receive 0.3 mg/kg for 7 days, every 6 weeks. In a prospective randomized study, Kyle et al.109 reported no significant difference in the overall response rate between these schedules, although interestingly the median response duration was greater for patients receiving intermittent versus continuously dosed chlorambucil (46 vs. 26 months). Despite the favorable median response duration in this study for use of the intermittent schedule, no difference in the median overall survival was observed. Moreover, an increased ...

All patients will receive six monthly courses of the chlorambucil (C) and lenalidomide (L) schedule consisting of 8 days of C (d1-d8) combined with L given daily until response assessment which will take place 12 weeks from the start (d+1) of course VI, while patients continue their treatment with lenalidomide daily.. In the first phase of the induction phase of the study the dose of L given with C will be gradually escalated to reach the MTD. In the second phase of the induction phase, C will be given in combination with the Maximum Tolerated Dose of L (either the MTD or the maximum planned dose of 10mg).. Patients who will achieve a response after 6 courses of CL induction phase -PR, CRi, CR and MRD negative CR- will be eligible for the post-induction phase of the study. Patients will be randomized (1:1), stratifying according to the quality of response (PR vs CR, CRi, MRD-CR) and the genetic profile (11q, 17p-, p53mut vs other), to receive L daily, (L arm) or no further therapy (Clinical ...

Genentech announced positive results from Stage 1 of CLL11, a Phase 3 randomized study to investigate the efficacy and safety profile of the investigational medication obinutuzumab (GA101) plus chlorambucil chemotherapy compared to chlorambucil alone in previously untreated Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).
THURSDAY, May 16, 2019 (HealthDay News) - Venetoclax (VENCLEXTA) has been approved to treat adult patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced yesterday.. Data from CLL14, a randomized, multicenter, open-label, actively controlled trial, provided the basis for approval. CLL14 involved 432 patients with previously untreated CLL and coexisting medical conditions who were randomly assigned to venetoclax plus obinutuzumab (VEN+G) or obinutuzumab plus chlorambucil (GClb). The researchers observed a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival for patients who received VEN+G compared with those who received GClb (hazard ratio, 0.33). Overall response was 85 percent in patients who received VEN+G and 71 percent in those who received GClb.. VENCLEXTA is available in 10-, 50-, and 100-mg tablets. Dosing begins with a five-week ramp-up, and the FDA advises clinicians to consult the manufacturer ...

Obinutuzumab is an immunotherapy medicine used in the treatment of CLL and Non Hodgkin lymphoma and works by binding to a protein on the surface of certain white cells known as B lymphocytes .By bonding to this protein the abnormal growth in the B lymphocyte is stopped therefore decreasing the number of cancer cells in the body.. Once attached to the CD20 protein Obinutuzumab helps the immune system destroy the CLL cells and also destroys the CLL cells on its own by directly killing them. Obinutuzumab is the only monoclonal antibody with proven superiority to rituximab for the treatment for CLL when used in combination with chlorambucil as proven in clinical trials.. Obinutuzumab is given by intravenous infusion which means it goes directly into the vein through a needle in your arm or through a central line if you have one in place. Obinutuzumab is given every week for 3 weeks then once every four weeks in combination with chlorambucil depending on your subtype of lymphoma.. Obinutuzumab may ...
Meeting the secondary endpoint is a little more provocative. This study was built with a crossover design - meaning if you were randomized to chlorambucil and experienced disease progression, they gave you ibrutinib at that point. If there is an overall survival benefit, it means that early ibrutinib saves lives compared to ibrutinib after progression. This was also true in the Resonate study comparing ibrutinib to ofatumumab and the Gilead study that led to approval of idelalisib in combination with rituximab. That is three studies that show that patients die faster when they get ineffective therapy compared to novel agents. It remains to be seen if that is true with standard regimens that actually work like bendamustine-rituximab or FCR where the bar will be much higher than chlorambucil ...
Chlorambucil is a very popular drug in feline medicine, especially used in the treatment of autoimmune diseases like pemphigus foliaceus or in neoplastic conditions like lymphoma.

Gazyva: Obinutuzumab belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medications called antineoplastics. Specifically, it is a monoclonal antibody that belongs to the group of antineoplastics known as biological response modifiers. It is used with the medication chlorambucil to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in adults who have not previously been treated for CLL.
The FDA approved obinutuzumab (Gazyva) or use in combination with chlorambucil to treat patients with previously untreated CLL, ibrutinib (Imbruvica) received FDA approval for the treatment of mantle cell lymphoma, and other FDA actions.
Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) analysis is the most sensitive method for assessing chromosome damage induced by chemical mutagens. We report the SCE of peripheral blood lymphocytes in children with primary nephrotic syndrome (NS) treated with chlorambucil. Group I consisted of 20 normal children, group 2 of 14 children with primary NS who had never received a cytotoxic drug and group III of 7 children with primary NS who had received chlorambucil, which was discontinued 6-36 months prior to the study. Group IV consisted of 4 nephrotic children who were receiving chlorambucil therapy during the study. There was no significant increase in SCE in group III compared with group I or group II (P≫0.05). A significant rise in SCE (P|0.05) was seen in all patients in group IV.
Chlorambucil (Leukeran), a cytotoxic agent, was administered to 13 children with the nephrotic syndrome who had responded to steroid therapy, but frequently relapsed.
We investigated sequence-specific DNA alkylation using conjugates between the N-methylpyrrole (Py)-N-methylimidazole (Im) polyamide and the DNA alkylating agent, chlorambucil, or 1-(chloromethyl)-5-hydroxy-1, 2-dihydro-3H-benz[e]indole (seco-CBI). Polyamide-chlorambucil conjugates 1-4 differed in the position at which the DNA alkylating chlorambucil moiety was bound to the Py-Im polyamide. High-resolution denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) revealed that chlorambucil conjugates 1-4 alkylated DNA at the sequences recognized by the Py-Im polyamide core moiety. Reactivity and sequence specificity were greatly affected by the conjugation position, which reflects the geometry of the alkylating agent in the DNA minor groove. Polyamide-seco-CBI conjugate 5 was synthesized to compare the efficacy of chlorambucil with that of seco-CBI as an alkylating moiety for Py-Im polyamides. Denaturing PAGE analysis revealed that DNA alkylation activity of polyamide-seco-CBI conjugate 5 was similar ...
Because 2-chloro-2-deoxyadenosine (CdA) is active in B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL), and may interfere with DNA repair, we investigated the potentiating effect of CdA on the cytotoxicity induced in vitro in B-CLL lymphocytes by cyclophosphamide (CP) derivatives, which induce DNA damage by DNA cross-linking. Exposure to CdA at clinically achievable concentrations for 2 h, followed by mafosfamide (MAF) or 4-hydroxycyclophosphamide (4HC) for 22 h, resulted in synergistic cytotoxicity in the majority of B-CLL samples tested. Synergy between CdA and MAF was observed in cell samples of sensitive/untreated patients, as well as in cells of resistant/pretreated patients, particularly at the highest concentrations of MAF. In the cells treated with CdA and MAF, we observed loss in ATP and hallmarks of apoptosis, as evidenced by cellular morphology and high molecular weight DNA fragmentation. The synergy could be explained neither by an influence of MAF on the phosphorylation of CdA, nor by an ...

Results Thirteen (72%) patients were male. The median age at diagnosis of GPA was 59 years (25-69) and the median duration from GPA diagnosis to first hematological malignancy was 7 years (3-15).. All patients had been treated with alkylating agents for GPA. 17 of the 18 patients had received cyclophosphamide, two of them had also been treated with chlorambucil. One had been treated with chlorambucil only.. The median duration of cyclophosphamide (intravenous and/or oral) was 58 months (range 6-104) and the median cumulative dose was 111 grams (range 20-233).. The malignancies were all myeloid and consisted of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) (n=9), AML (n=5), chronic myelocytic leukemia (n=2), myelofibrosis (n=1), and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (n=1). AML developed in 8 of the patients with MDS and in the patient with myelofibrosis.. MDS was typically diagnosed after a period of cytopenia suspected to be associated with GPA treatment. The median time between diagnosis of MDS and AML was in ...
This approval is based on results from the Phase 3 iLLUMINATE study (PCYC-1130). At a median follow-up of 31 months, Imbruvica plus obinutuzumab showed a significant improvement in Independent Review Committee (IRC)-evaluated progression-free survival compared with chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab (median not evaluable [NE] vs. 19 months; hazard ratio [HR] 0.23; 95 percent confidence interval [CI]: 0.15-0.37; P,0.0001), with a 77 percent reduction in risk of progression or death. Patients with high-risk disease (17p deletion/TP53 mutation, 11q deletion, or unmutated IGHV) treated with Imbruvica plus obinutuzumab experienced an 85 percent reduction in risk of progression or death (HR 0.15; 95 percent CI: 0.09-0.27). The IRC-evaluated overall response rate was 89 percent in the Imbruvica plus obinutuzumab arm versus 73 percent in the chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab arm. The data were recently presented in an oral session at the 2018 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and ...

A trend that is expected to boost market growth is a rise in the development of combination therapies. Combination therapies for the treatment of CLL were available only in the form of chemotherapy combination drugs. The approved combinations are chlorambucil in combination with prednisone, and a combination of cyclophosphamide with vincristine and prednisone. However, a growing trend of developing combination therapies to treat CLL has been observed. For instance, TG Therapeutics develops TG-1101 in combination with ibrutinib to treat CLL and MCL. Similarly, the company also develops TG-1101 in combination with TGR-1202 to treat CLL and NHL..

Here we present the long-term follow-up data and results of preplanned subgroup exploratory analyses from MCL-002 to evaluate the potential impact of demographic factors, baseline clinical characteristics and prior therapies on PFS. In MCL-002, patients with relapsed/refractory MCL were randomized 2:1 to receive lenalidomide (25 mg/day orally on days 1-21; 28-day cycles) or single-agent IC therapy (rituximab, gemcitabine, fludarabine, chlorambucil or cytarabine ...
Chicago, IL-In the phase 3 CLL14 trial, fixed-duration therapy with the combination of venetoclax (Venclexta) plus obinutuzumab (Gazyva) was superior to the combination of chemotherapy with chlorambucil plus obinutuzu-mab as front-line therapy in older patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and comorbidities. Kirsten Fischer, MD, Center for Integrated Oncology Cologne-Bonn, University Hospital, Germany, presented the study results at ASCO 2019 and were published simultaneously (Fischer K, et al. N Engl J Med. 2019;380:2225-2236).
The combination CHOP-R was the most common treatment (35 pts, 15% of all 2nd-line therapies), applied mainly in cases with a relapse ≤24 months after FC/FCR, whereas FCR or BR were administered predominantly in case of relapse less than 24months (32 and 27 pts, 14% and 12%). Other prevalent 2nd-line therapies were single agent Alemtuzumab(A) (20 pts) or Bendamustine (17 pts), CHOP and FC (11 pts respectively), chlorambucil (9 pts) as well as R monotherapy (7 pts). 9 pts underwent stem cell transplantations. Second-line therapies with FC+/-R and B+/-R were found to be more effective with regard to treatment-free survival (TFS, time to 2nd relapse) and OS when compared to A or CHOP-R and CHOP-like chemotherapies. However, the outcome of 2nd-line therapies seemed to be influenced by the 1st-line treatment. In pts initially treated with FC, FCR was found to be the most effective 2nd-line therapy (TFS: 23 months, OS: not reached), whereas in pts initially treated with FCR, a substitution of the ...
In this paper, we have characterized intracellular to extracellular pH gradients in spontaneous canine tumors. In most cases, the extracellular environment was more acidic (positive gradient). This condition would tend to favor uptake of weakly acidic drugs into tumor cells as predicted by our calculations (Table 1,$REFLINK, , Fig. 2,$REFLINK, ). This has been demonstrated for chlorambucil, a weak acid with a pKa value of 5.8 (22 , 25) . Furthermore, the uptake of 5-fluorouracil is also enhanced at low pHe conditions (23) . However, cytotoxicity of doxorubicin, a weak base, and uptake of mitoxantrone are reportedly reduced at a low pHe (15 , 16 , 17) .. It has been demonstrated previously that pH gradients exist in rodent tumors, and it has been suggested that this physiological characteristic of tumors could be used to therapeutic advantage (4) . Furthermore, the magnitude and direction of pH gradients could represent a source for chemotherapeutic treatment resistance, depending on the pKa of ...
