RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) PET imaging, may help find and diagnose cancer. It may also help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying FLT PET imaging in patients with cancer.
The investigators are performing a trial with goals to demonstrate the feasibility of imaging multiple myeloma (MM) patients with 64Cu-LLP2A-positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance (MR). The investigators suggest that 64Cu-LLP2A will allow for an accurate molecular imaging of MM lesions, which will have an important impact on early stage disease detection and in the long term on the initiation and choice of therapy in these patients.
Chemokine receptor-4 (CXCR4) is overexpressed in multiple myeloma (MM) cells. 68Ga-pentixafor is a radio-labled tracer for CXCR4 . 68Ga-pentixafor PET/CT has shown good diagnostic performance in MM. But an exchange of Ga3+ by Lu3+ or Y3+ will lead to a significant loss of CXCR4 affinity. Investigators conduct this prospective study to evaluate the diagnostic performance of 68Ga-pentixather compared with 68Ga-pentixafor, in order to parallel 68Ga-pentixather and 177Lu/90Y-pentixather in theranostics of MM.
This phase II trial studies how well abatacept, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone work in treating patients with multiple myeloma that is resistant to chemotherapy. Abatacept may block certain proteins that are present on multiple myeloma cells that have been shown to protect against chemotherapy. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving abatacept, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone may work better at treating patients with multiple myeloma...
This is a single arm study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BCMA-targeted prime CAR-T cells therapy for patients with relapsed/refractory Multiple Myeloma.
The primary aim is to establish a prospective cohort of patients with plasma cell disorders (PCDs). All of the hospitalized PCD patients who are willing to sign the informed consent form (ICF) will be included in this study. Clinical characteristics, treatment options and responses will be collected. Peripheral blood, bone marrow aspirate and urine samples before and after the treatment will banked for future research. Our team will focus on the clinical and pathological features of PCDs, the correlation between the minimal residual disease (MRD) status and prognosis, and the role of Tumor Microenvironment (TME) in the pathogenesis and ...
Participants in this study will be receiving a bone marrow transplant. This study is designed to evaluate correlations between activity levels and length of stay, quality of life, and hand grip strength.
This randomized, controlled trial is designed to evaluate the effect of acupuncture on Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN), other symptoms, and potential opioid and concomitant medication sparing effects in comparison to standard of care management in Multiple Myeloma subjects.
This research study will test the efficacy of interactive, web-based interventions that improve diet, physical activity and weight management changes among early stage survivors of breast, prostate, colorectal, endometrial, renal, thyroid, and ovarian cancers, as well as multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Overarching outcomes also include physical function and performance, muscle mass, quality of life, and health utilities.
Evaluation of myeloma disease burden is currently suboptimal. This limits treatment planning and evaluation of residual disease following treatment. 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab is a novel immunoPET tracer, designed to detect CD38 on myeloma cells and allow visualization of myeloma in a PET scanner. A phase I study of 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab demonstrated safety and successful visualization of myeloma with 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab. This will be a phase II study of 89Zr-DFO-daratumumab to evaluate potential clinical applications of this novel imaging agent.
