A Phase II, Randomized, Three-Arm Study of Abiraterone Acetate Alone, Abiraterone Acetate Plus Degarelix, a GnRH Antagonist, and Degarelix Alone for Patients with Prostate Cancer with a Rising PSA and Nodal Disease Following Definitive Radical Prostatectomy
The primary endpoint for each cohort is progression-free survival (PFS) at 18 months from the start of randomization (PSA0). PFS is defined as an undetectable (less than or equal to 0.05 ng/mL) PSA with a non-castrate level of testosterone (greater than 150 ng/dL). Pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) must also have reduction in short axis to less than 10mm (Compelte Response per RECIST) in order to meet the criteria for PFS.
Secondary endpoints: (1) PSA response rate (Percentage of patients with an undetectable PSA at 8 months from PSA0). (2) Effects of each arm on overall quality of life, with particular attention to libido, potency, anxiety, depression, hot flashes and fatigue. (3) Frequency and intensity of non-hematologic adverse events. (4) Testosterone and leuteinizing hormone (LH) recovery rates.
Tertiary endpoint: Correlative tissue analysis with clinical outcomes while on study treatment.

This trial will determine if salicylate-mediated NF-kB suppression results in suppression of NF-kB target gene expression and/or chemotherapy drug efflux in AML cells.

COG-AALL0631: A Phase III Study of Risk Directed Therapy for Infants with Acute Lymphblastic Leukemia (ALL): Randomization of Highest Risk Infants to Intensive Chemotherapy +/- FLT3 Inhibition (CEP-701, Lestaurtinib; IND #76431; NSC #617807)
We want to find out if adding lestaurtinib to standard therapy for Intermediate and High Risk infants with ALL will result in better treatment outcomes than standard chemotherapy alone. Since lestaurtinib only targets leukemia cells, it is hoped that the side effects of lestaurtinib will be less than for standard chemotherapy drugs. Although lestaurtinib is investigational and has not been approved by the FDA, it has been shown to be well-tolerated in children and adults. The side effects of lestaurtinib in infants are not known because the drug hasn?t been evaluated in infants yet.
The goal of Part 1 of the study is to find the dose of lestaurtinib that is safe and that can turn off the FLT3 gene when given to Intermediate and High Risk infants with ALL.
During Part 1 of the study, lestaurtinib will be given to Intermediate and High Risk patients only at a limited number of cancer treatment centers. The Cancer Institute of New Jersey is NOT one of these centers. Therefore subjects will receive the combination chemotherapy treatment without lestaurtinib.
Part 2 of this study will only be undertaken if Part 1 of the study successfully finds a dose of lestaurtinib that is safe and can turn off the FLT3 gene. In Part 2 of the study, the researchers will try to find out how helpful lestaurtinib is in getting rid of cancer in infants with Intermediate and High Risk. Subjects participating in Part 1 of the study will not participate in Part 2 of the study.
The goal of Part 2 of the study is to find out the effects, good and/or bad, of lestaurtinib given in combination with standard chemotherapy in treating Intermediate and High Risk infants with ALL.
