Clinical Trial – Monitoring and Treatment of Relapsed Leukemia – Leukemia

Reuven Schore is running a clinical trial to test drugs called Bortezomib and Pravastatin to treat Leukemia. This study aims to monitor patients for relapse of the leukemia following allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) in order to identify patients early in relapse, with a low burden of disease, when interventions may be more successful by monitoring of peripheral blood lineage specific chimerism. Once disease has been confirmed, patients will initiate a novel combination of bortezomib and pravastatin.

The drugs are Bortezomib and Pravastatin.
