  • Tocilizumab in Treating Children and Adolescents with Newly-Diagnosed, Recurrent, or Progressive Adamantinomatous Craniopharyngioma

    This early phase I trial studies how well tocilizumab works in treating children and adolescents with adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma that is newly diagnosed, has come back (recurrent), or is growing, spreading, or getting worse (progressive). Immunotherapy with tocilizumab, may induce changes in body’s immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • A Trial of Mosunetuzumab (BTCT4465A) as Consolidation Therapy in Participants With Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Following First-Line Immunochemotherapy and as Therapy in Participants With Previously Untreated Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Who Are Unable to Tolerate Full-Dose Chemotherapy

    This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of mosunetuzumab following first-line diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) immunochemotherapy in participants with a best response of partial response, or in participants with previously untreated DLBCL who are unable to tolerate full-dose, first-line immunochemotherapy.

  • Tocilizumab in Improving Graft-Versus-Host Disease and Early Side Effects in Patients with Blood Cancers Undergoing Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant

    This phase II trial studies how well tocilizumab works in improving graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and early side effects in patients with blood cancers undergoing umbilical cord blood transplant. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before an umbilical cord blood transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient, they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells (called GVHD). Giving tocilizumab in addition to the standard approach for GVHD prevention after the transplant may stop this from happening.

  • A Dose Escalation Study of RO7082859 as a Single Agent and in Combination With Obinutuzumab, Administered After a Fixed, Single Pre-Treatment Dose of Obinutuzumab in Participants With Relapsed / Refractory B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

    This is a Phase I, multicenter, open-label, dose-escalation study designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics (PK) of a novel T-Cell bispecific (TCB), RO7082859, administered by intravenous (IV) infusion as a single agent and in combination with obinutuzumab, following the pre-treatment with a one-time, fixed dose of obinutuzumab. This entry-to-human study is divided in 3 parts: dose escalation (Parts I and II) and dose expansion (Part III). Single-participant dose-escalation cohorts will be used in Part I, followed by conversion to multiple participant dose-escalation cohorts (Part II), in order to define a tentative maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or optimal biological dose (OBD). The expansion cohorts (Part III) will be initiated when the tentative MTD / OBD is defined, to further evaluate the safety, PK and therapeutic activity of RO7082859.

  • Tocilizumab for the Treatment of CART19 Associated Cytokine Release Syndrome in Patients with CD19 Positive Relapsed or Refractory B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or B-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma

    This early phase I trial studies how well tocilizumab works in treating cytokine release syndrome caused by treatment with CART19 T-cells (genetically modified white blood cells) in patients with CD19 positive B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia or B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma that has come back (recurrent) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Tocilizumab may help control cytokine release syndrome side effects in patients who are receiving treatment with CART19 T-cells for B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia or B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma

  • Alemtuzumab or Tocilizumab in Combination with Etoposide and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients with Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis

    This phase II trial studies how well alemtuzumab or tocilizumab in combination with etoposide and dexamethasone work in treating patients with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a disorder that causes abnormal over activity of the immune system. Immunosuppressive therapy, using drugs such as alemtuzumab, tocilizumab, etoposide, and dexamethasone, may decrease the body’s immune system activity and prevent the immune system from causing damage to organs.

  • Tocilizumab for KSHV-Associated Multicentric Castleman Disease

    Background: - KSHV-associated multicentric Castleman disease (KSHV-MCD) is caused by a herpes virus known as KSHV. This disease can also cause several other cancers, including Kaposi sarcoma. People with KSHV-MCD often have symptoms like fever, weight and muscle loss, and fluid in the legs or abdomen. Tocilizumab may be able to block the chemicals in the body that cause KSHV-MCD symptoms. Researchers want to test this drug and other anti-virus drugs to find the best combination of drugs to treat KSHV-MCD. Objectives: - To test the effectiveness of tocilizumab with and without other anti-virus drugs for KSHV-MCD. Eligibility: - People at least 18 years of age who have KSHV-MCD and have certain symptoms and blood abnormalities caused by their KSHV-MCD. Design: - Participants will be screened with a medical history and physical exam. They will also have blood tests, and a skin biopsy. - Participants will have tocilizumab injections every 2 weeks for up to 12 weeks. They will provide daily blood samples for the first 3 days of treatment. - After the sixth dose, participants will be monitored for 4 weeks to check for possible side effects. - Those whose KSHV-MCD does not improve or worsens during the study may have tocilizumab combined with two other anti-virus drugs, zidovudine and valganciclovir. These drugs are pills that will be taken four times a day for 5 days out of every 2 weeks. - Blood, urine, and saliva samples will be collected throughout the study.

  • A Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Multiple Immunotherapy-based Treatment Combinations in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma After Failure With Platinum-Containing Chemotherapy

    A Phase Ib / II, open-label, multicenter, randomized, umbrella study in participants with locally advanced or metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma (UC) who have progressed during or following a platinum-containing regimen. The study is designed with the flexibility to open new treatment arms as new treatments become available, close existing treatment arms that demonstrate minimal clinical activity or unacceptable toxicity, or modify the participant population (e.g., with regard to prior anti-cancer treatment or biomarker status).

  • Modified Immune Cells (CD19 / CD20 CAR-T Cells) in Treating Patients with Recurrent or Refractory B-Cell Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of CD19 / CD20 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cells when given together with chemotherapy, and to see how effective they are in treating patients with non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia that has come back (recurrent) or has not responded to treatment (refractory). In CAR-T cell therapy, a patient's white blood cells (T cells) are changed in the laboratory to produce an engineered receptor that allows the T cell to recognize and respond to CD19 and CD20 proteins. CD19 and CD20 are commonly found on non-Hodgkin’s B-cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. Chemotherapy drugs such as fludarabine phosphate and cyclophosphamide can control cancer cells by killing them, by preventing their growth, or by stopping them from spreading. Combining CD19 / CD20 CAR-T cells and chemotherapy may help treat patients with recurrent or refractory B-cell lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
