Open to people ages 18-99

  • Subject has provided informed consent prior to initiation of any study-specific activities/procedures OR subject's legally acceptable representative has provided informed consent prior to any study-specific activities/procedures being initiated when the subject has any kind of condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may compromise the ability of the subject to give written informed consent
  • Age greater than or equal to 18 years
  • B-cell precursor (BCP) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with minimal/measurable residual disease defined as hematologic complete remission (CR) with less than 5% bone marrow blasts and meets clinical eligibility criteria to receive blinatumomab as outlined below.
  • Hematologic criteria for remission as defined below:
    • Less than 5% bone marrow blasts
    • Absolute neutrophil count greater than or equal to 1.0 x109 L
    • Platelets greater than or equal to 50 x109/L (transfusion permitted)
    • Hemoglobin level greater than or equal to 90 g/L (transfusion permitted)
  • Renal and hepatic function as defined below:
  • Total bilirubin <3 x upper limit of normal (ULN) unless related to Gilbert's or Meulengracht disease
  • Serum creatinine <1.5 x ULN. If serum creatinine ≥1.5 x ULN, then measure Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR); subject will be eligible only if measured GFR is within normal limits.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS) of 0 or 1
  • Negative pregnancy test in women of childbearing potential
  • Ability and willingness to wear and comply with the instructions for the use of and monitoring of the digital monitoring devices as outlined in informed consent
  • Subject resides within 1 hour of ground transportation to an advanced medical care facility for the duration of the mandatory device monitoring period (MDMP)
  • Adequate cellular service available during MDMP.
  • Presence of an adult (greater than or equal to 18 years) caregiver(s) in the same dwelling, for 24 hours/day for the entire MDMP. Caregiver will be expected to have access to transportation
  • Ability and willingness to participate in the health management of the subject and to assist with the requirements of remote digital monitoring devices during the blinatumomab infusion within the MDMP
