Study Summary

This trial is testing a new therapy to see if it can reduce leukemia before a patient gets a bone marrow transplant. The hope is that it will improve the patient's chances of survival.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for individuals up to 25 years old with B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (B-ALL) in remission but with minimal residual disease, planning to undergo a bone marrow transplant. They must have good organ function and performance status, no active infections or GVHD if post-transplant, and not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Participants need to agree to contraception use and can't have CNS leukemia or be on other cancer treatments.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests blinatumomab as a 'bridging therapy' before hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). It aims to reduce leukemia cells further in patients who are already in remission but still have some remaining disease. The goal is improving outcomes after the transplant.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects of blinatumomab include allergic reactions, fever, headache, nausea, fatigue, insomnia, and infection risk increase. Some may experience neurological issues like seizures or confusion.

Experimental Treatment
Group I: BlinatumomabExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Up to 2 cycles of continuous infusion blinatumomab will be given based on the end of Cycle 1 disease response. Cycle 2 of blinatumomab can be given to subjects who have achieved remission (< 5% marrow blasts) after Cycle 1 but have persistent disease identified by multi-parameter flow cytometry (minimal residual disease (MRD) positive ≥ 0.01%) after Cycle 1.
