Clinical Trials Using Ponatinib Hydrochloride

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Ponatinib Hydrochloride. 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.

Trials 1-5 of 5
  • Ponatinib for the Treatment of Advanced and Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well ponatinib works in treating patients with medullary thyroid cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced and metastatic). Ponatinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Venetoclax, Ponatinib, and Dexamethasone in Participants with Philadelphia Chromosome or BCR-ABL Positive Relapsed or Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

    This phase I / II trial studies the best dose of venetoclax when given together with ponatinib and dexamethasone and to see how well they work in treating participants with Philadelphia chromosome or BCR-ABL positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia or chronic myelogenous leukemia that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as venetoclax and dexamethasone, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Ponatinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving venetoclax, ponatinib, and dexamethasone may work better in treating participants with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or chronic myelogenous leukemia.

  • Personalized Kinase Inhibitor Therapy Combined with Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    This phase IB trial studies the feasibility of using a functional laboratory based study to determine how well the test can be used to select personalized kinase inhibitor therapy in combination with standard chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). It also evaluates safety and potential efficacy. Kinase inhibitor is a type of substance that blocks an enzyme called a kinase. Human cells have many different kinase enzymes, and they help control important cell functions. Certain kinases are more active in some types of cancer cells and blocking them may help keep the cancer cells from growing. Testing samples of blood from patients with AML and ALL in the laboratory with kinase inhibitors may help determine which kinase inhibitor has more activity against cancer cells and which one should be combined with standard of care chemotherapy. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving a personalized kinase inhibitor therapy combined with standard chemotherapy may be a better treatment for AML and ALL.

  • Ponatinib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Refractory Metastatic Cancers and Genetic Alterations

    This phase II trial studies how well ponatinib hydrochloride works in treating patients with cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic), did not respond to previous treatment (refractory), and has one of several alterations, or mutations, in its deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequence. Ponatinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether a patient's genetic alterations may affect how well ponatinib hydrochloride works.

  • Combination Chemotherapy and Ponatinib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well combination chemotherapy and ponatinib hydrochloride work in treating patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, vincristine sulfate, doxorubicin hydrochloride, and dexamethasone, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Ponatinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving combination chemotherapy and ponatinib hydrochloride may be an effective treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
