Clinical Trials Using Anti-interferon gamma Monoclonal Antibody NI-0501
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Anti-interferon gamma Monoclonal Antibody NI-0501. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Emapalumab in Primary Haemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis
The purpose of this study is to expand the knowledge on the efficacy and safety of emapalumab (previously known as NI-0501) as a treatment for primary haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) patients, with special focus on long-term outcome and quality of life assessments. Emapalumab can be administered as the first-line therapy, to patients not previously treated with the current standard of care, or can be given to patients who have either failed or were unable to tolerate the available standard of care. Emapalumab is to be administered until the start of conditioning, with an anticipated duration ranging from a minimum of 4 weeks to approximately 12 weeks and not exceeding 6 months. After treatment completion, patients will continue in the study for long-term follow-up until 1 year after either HSCT or last emapalumab infusion (if HSCT is not performed).

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Emapalumab in Adult Patients With HLH
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare, life-threatening condition characterized by uncontrolled hyperinflammation which may develop on the background of several clinical conditions (e.g. autoimmune disease, infection, malignancy). Emapalumab (previously referred to as NI-0501) is a monoclonal antibody neutralizing interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), a key cytokine driving the inflammation and tissue damage seen in HLH. The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of emapalumab in adult patients with HLH.
