Pilot study of anakinra to mitigate CAR-T toxicity in subjects with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma
MD Anderson Study Status
Anakinra, Axicabtagene Ciloleucel, Cyclophosphamide, Fludarabine
This phase II trial studies the side effects and best dose of anakinra and to see how well it works in reducing side effects (toxicity) associated with a CAR-T cell treatment called axicabtagene ciloleucel in patients with large B-cell lymphoma that has come back (relapsed) or has not responded to treatment (refractory). Anakinra is a drug typically used to treat rheumatoid arthritis but may also help in reducing CAR-T cell therapy toxicity. Giving anakinra in combination with axicabtagene ciloleucel may help control relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma.
