AL Amyloidosis clinical trials at University of California Health

8 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Venetoclax, Daratumumab, and Dexamethasone for Systemic Light-Chain Amyloidosis With Translocation (11;14) (ALTITUDE)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I/II trial tests the safety, side effects, and best dose of venetoclax, daratumumab, and dexamethasone for the treatment of systemic light-chain amyloidosis in patients with a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) abnormality called a translocation involving chromosomes 11 and 14, or "t(11;14)". Venetoclax works by attaching to a protein called Bcl-2, in order to kill cancer cells. Daratumumab works by binding to a target on the surface of cancer cells called Cluster of differentiation 38 (CD38). When daratumumab binds to CD38, it enables the immune system to find the cancer cell and kill it. Dexamethasone is a type of drug called a corticosteroid. A corticosteroid is a drug made of artificial steroid hormones, that are used to treat symptoms such as inflammation (swelling and irritation to a part of the body). The combination of these medications may more effectively treat patients with systemic light-chain amyloidosis and t(11;14).

  • CAEL-101 in Patients With Mayo Stage IIIa AL Amyloidosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    AL (or light chain) amyloidosis begins in the bone marrow where abnormal proteins misfold and create free light chains that cannot be broken down. These free light chains bind together to form amyloid fibrils that build up in the extracellular space of organs, affecting the kidneys, heart, liver, spleen, nervous system and digestive tract. The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether CAEL-101, a monoclonal antibody that removes AL amyloid deposits from tissues and organs, improves overall survival and it is safe and well tolerated in patients with stage IIIa AL amyloidosis.

  • CAEL-101 in Patients With Mayo Stage IIIb AL Amyloidosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    AL (or light chain) amyloidosis begins in the bone marrow where abnormal proteins misfold and create free light chains that cannot be broken down. These free light chains bind together to form amyloid fibrils that build up in the extracellular space of organs, affecting the kidneys, heart, liver, spleen, nervous system and digestive tract. The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether CAEL-101, a monoclonal antibody that removes AL amyloid deposits from tissues and organs, improves overall survival and it is safe and well tolerated in patients with stage IIIb AL amyloidosis.

  • Daratumumab in Combination With Cyclophosphamide, Bortezomib and Dexamethasone (CyBorD) Compared to CyBorD Alone in Newly Diagnosed Systemic Amyloid Light-chain (AL) Amyloidosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of daratumumab plus cyclophosphamide, bortezomib and dexamethasone (CyBorD) compared with CyBorD alone in treatment of newly diagnosed amyloid light chain (AL) amyloidosis participants.

  • S1702 Isatuximab in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Primary Amyloidosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well isatuximab works in treating patients with primary amyloidosis that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as isatuximab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread.

  • NXC-201 CAR-T in Patients With Light Chain (AL) Amyloidosis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Open-label Phase 1b Dose Escalation/Dose Expansion study exploring the safety and efficacy of NXC-201 in patients with relapsed or refractory light chain amyloidosis (AL).

  • Venetoclax, MLN9708 (Ixazomib Citrate) and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Light Chain Amyloidosis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This phase I/Ia trial finds the best dose and side effects of venetoclax given in combination with ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone in treating patients with light chain amyloidosis that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory) and who have an abnormal genetic change [translocation t(11;14)]. Venetoclax is in a class of medications called B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) inhibitors. It may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking Bcl-2, a protein needed for cancer cell survival. Ixazomib citrate is in a class of medications called proteasome inhibitors. It works by helping to kill cancer cells. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as dexamethasone reduce inflammation by lowering the body's immune response and are used with other drugs in the treatment of some types of cancer. Combination therapy with venetoclax, ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone may be effective in treatment of relapsed or refractory light chain amyloidosis.

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis Registry Study

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This registry is a observational, multi-center study designed to collect data and analyze it retrospectively on patients with cardiac amyloidosis who have been evaluated and treated at major amyloid centers across the US and internationally between 1997 and 2025.
