Le23 CPG: A Phase I/II Study of Intratumoral Injection of CPG 7909, A TLR 9 Agonist, Combined With Local Radiation in Recurrent Low-Grade Lymphomas
This is a single institution phase I / II trial to evaluate the safety, feasibility and efficacy of CpG injections (4 intratumoral injections followed by 6 peri-tumoral injections) combined with local irradiation in patients with recurrent low-grade lymphomas. Patients will receive low-dose radiotherapy to a single tumor site on days 1 and 2 (2 Gy each day). CpG injections will be administered into the same tumor site within the 24 hours before and the 24 hours after the radiation, and on days 8 and 15. Weekly doses of CpG will be then administered subcutaneously in the region of previous injections for 6 additional doses.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
