Brentuximab Vedotin in Treating Patients With Advanced Systemic Mastocytosis or Mast Cell Leukemia (NCT01807598)
This pilot clinical trial studies brentuximab vedotin (also known as SGN-035; Adcetris® by Seattle Genetics Inc.) in treating patients with advanced systemic mastocytosis or mast cell leukemia. Monoclonal antibodies, such as brentuximab vedotin, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them.
This trial is sponsored by Jason Robert Gotlib, Stanford University/National Cancer Institute (NCI).
