A Study of Bortezomib With Chemotherapy for Relapsed/Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

This is a Phase I/II study of a drug called bortezomib given in combination with chemotherapy drugs used to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) that has come back (recurred). Bortezomib is a drug that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating adults with multiple myeloma which is a type of blood cancer. Bortezomib has been shown to cause cancer cells to die in studies done on animals (mice). Studies have been done that have shown that some adults and children with cancer have shown a response to bortezomib when it is used alone. Studies have also been done in adults to evaluate the dose of bortezomib that can be safely given in combination with other chemotherapy drugs. The Phase I portion of this study is complete and the dose for the phase II portion of the study is 1.3mg/m2/day. The phase II portion of the study is open and accruing.
