Initial results from an ongoing clinical trial in Italy appear promising. Furthermore, it causes the cells to lose their hair-like protrusions, eventually killing them, the researchers found. Nanovaccines join the fight against cancer.

Effective targeted treatment for hairy cell leukaemia. Towards complete remission in HCL The team launched a Phase 2 clinical trial in Italy; a similar initiative was then set up by colleagues in the United States, in which late-stage patients who had often undergone hccl repeatedly were treated with tablets of vemurafenib as outpatients for two to four months.

Building hccl the results of their initial trials, the Hairy Cell Leukemia team is now developing a combination therapy in which vemurafenib is administered together with injections of rituximab, an antibody that drives the immune system to attack the hairy cells.

Designed to treat melanoma, an unrelated form of skin cancer often carrying the same BRAF mutation, vemurafenib is extremely effective in vitro against HCL, reversing the gene expression that distinguishes HCL cells from the cells of other blood cancers.

Skip to main ucl. The drug was not only able to put them into remission, but did so without the toxic effects of chemotherapy, which these patients would not have withstood.

The results were recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, a highly respected scientific publication. Since first identifying a BRAF mutation known as VE as being involved in HCL development, Tiacci and Falini have focused on how to target the disease with a non-chemotherapy-based, genetics-driven and rationally designed treatment rrc.

However, even patients that showed a complete response had some residual leukaemic cells visible in their bone marrow when tested with highly sensitive techniques — a reservoir from which leukaemia can re-grow and cause patients to eventually relapse several months to a few years after being treated.

They turned to a drug called vemurafenib that inhibits BRAF, and which was being developed by pharmaceutical group Roche. Its rarity means that it has been the focus of relatively little research since the late s, when chemical compounds called purine analogues were found to be effective in rec it chemotherapeutically, albeit with some severe side effects for patients.

The team launched a Phase 2 clinical trial in Italy; a similar initiative was then set up by colleagues in the United States, in which late-stage patients who had often undergone chemotherapy repeatedly were treated with tablets of vemurafenib as outpatients for two to four months. Tiacci says the next step is therefore to try to kill residual leukaemic cells to prevent, or at least further delay, relapse.

In light of the results so far, Tiacci predicts it is highly probable that a vemurafenib-based approach to treating HCL will be used clinically within a few years after further testing and regulatory approval:
