Obatoclax in Combination with Vincristine, Doxorubicin and Dexrazoxane in Children with Relapsed or Refractory Solid Tumors or Leukemia

Protocol Description

Through this Children’s Oncology Group Phase I trial researchers are investigating the effects of the drug obatoclax when used in chemotherapy to treat leukemia and solid tumors that have come back or proven to be resistant to standard treatment.

It will be used in combination with vincristine and doxorubicin, drugs that seem to work against cancer, and dexrazozane, a medicine used to protect the heart.
