Feasibility of an Adapted Physical Activity Program for Patients Treated With an Autograft (APA²)

Therapeutic intensification followed by an autograft of hematopoietic stem cells is a standard of care for young patients with myeloma from the first line and for lymphoma from the second or third line of treatment. This procedure remains toxic in the short and medium term with significant mortality and morbidity: the average mortality varies from 1.4 to 5%. The causes of death are linked to a severe infection, visceral bleeding or vital organ failure. This risk of mortality is partly correlated with sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is defined by the reduction of muscle mass and strength. It was first described in the elderly and classified as geriatric syndrome such as dementia, falls or frailty. It varies from 5 to 13% between 60 and 70 years and between 11 and 50% beyond 80 years and is classified as primitive, that is to say related to age It can however be secondary to neoplasia. This event has been described in patients with hematologic malignancies during chemotherapy and can reach 55% of patients in the elderly. It is proportional to the intensity of the treatments. It emerges as an independent prognostic factor which is detrimental to survival in these patients. Physical exercise combined with nutritional support could reduce it. The positive impact of adapted physical activity (APA) has been shown in numerous publications on reducing the incidence and risk of relapse for several cancers (breast, colon prostate). It is less obvious in hematology in view of studies published on APA with different physical activity programs depending on the time of the intervention or according to the type, duration and intensity. The objective of this study is to assess the feasibility of an APA program in patients requiring an autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant. It is expected that the program will have a protective effect on the appearance of induced sarcopenia and on the complications related to the procedure in the short and medium term regardless of the hematology center for patients receiving intensive treatment with support for autologous hematopoietic stem cells. This is a feasibility study.

Evaluating the Feasibility of a Digital Health Coaching Program for Individuals Following CAR T Therapy

The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of a digital health coaching program for, and to describe quality of life of, individuals in the 6 months following chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy. Up to 50 English-speaking individuals aged 18 and older who are to receive treatment with a CAR T cell therapy will be enrolled, all at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Participants must have internet access via smart phone, tablet, a computer, or another device with the capacity to receive calls, texts, or e-mails, as well as the electronic study assessments and will be excluded if they are unable to provide informed consent or have a prognosis of 6 months or less. Consented participants will be enrolled in a 6-month digital health coaching program delivered via weekly calls from a Health Advisor coupled with the digital delivery of content. The program focuses on identification and escalation of treatment-related toxicity, communication with providers, and physical and psychosocial health following treatment. Health related quality of life (HRQoL) will be assessed with the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Lymphoma (FACT-L), health self-efficacy will be assessed by the Cancer Behavior Inventory-Brief (CBI-B), physical and mental health outcomes will be measured by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Global Health 10. Patient experience in managing CAR T specific care will be assessed with a 5-item questionnaire developed specifically for use in this study, focused on participants' confidence in understanding, identifying and managing symptoms, and communicating with providers. Study outcomes will contribute to knowledge about if and how a digital health intervention may be used to support individuals post-CAR T cell therapy.

A Trial of the Safety and Immunogenicity of the COVID-19 Vaccine (mRNA-1273) in Participants With Hematologic Malignancies and Various Regimens of Immunosuppression, and in Participants With Solid Tumors on PD1/PDL1 Inhibitor Therapy

Background: COVID-19 is a viral infection. It has spread rapidly across the globe. It has overwhelmed health systems. Researchers are concerned that it may undo years of progress in the reduction of cancer-specific death. They want to test a vaccine that might protect people with cancer from COVID-19. The COVID-19 Vaccine from Moderna has obtained an emergency use authorization from the FDA. The vaccine has been proven to reduce infections with the virus that causes COVID-19, and it has already been given to millions of people around the world. Objective: To test the safety and efficacy of a vaccine using mRNA-1273 that may protect people with cancer from COVID-19. Eligibility: Adults ages 18 and older who have a solid tumor or blood cancer and who may benefit from a vaccine that might prepare their immune system for fighting and preventing infection from COVID-19. Patients with solid tumors must be receiving treatment with an immunotherapy agent Design: Participants will be screened with a medical history, medicine review, and physical exam. They will have blood tests. They will have a pregnancy test if needed. Participants will get 2 doses of the mRNA-1273 vaccine. It will be injected into a muscle in the arm on Days 1 and 29. Participants will have a follow-up phone call on Day 8 after the first dose. They will be followed for 12 months after the second dose. Participants will have study visits at the Clinical Center on Days 1 and 29 to get the COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna. Patients will then be asked to come back for visits about 1 week and 1 month after the second dose. Patients will need to come back for visits 6 months and 1 year after the second vaccine dose to check to see how long the vaccine offers protection. Some visits will last up to a few hours, but most will be significantly shorter. Participants will give blood and saliva samples for research. Participation will last about 13 months.

Venetoclax, Ibrutinib, Prednisone, Obinutuzumab, and Revlimid in Combination With Polatuzumab (ViPOR-P) in Relapsed/Refractory B-cell Lymphoma

Background: Aggressive B-cell lymphomas can be cured but people with disease that resists treatment or that returns after treatment have poor outcomes with standard therapies. Indolent B-cell lymphomas are generally incurable with standard therapy and treatment is aimed at controlling symptoms and achieving a durable remissions. Researchers want to see if a combination of drugs can help patients with both aggressive and indolent B-cell lymphomas. Objective: To learn if it is safe and effective to give polatuzumab along with venetoclax, ibrutinib, prednisone, obinutuzumab, and lenalidomide to people with certain B-cell lymphomas. Eligibility: Adults ages 18 and older with relapsed and/or refractory B-cell lymphoma who have had at least one prior cancer treatment. Design: Participants will be screened with: Medical history Physical exam Assessment of how they do their daily activities Blood and urine tests Heart function test Tissue biopsy (if needed) Body imaging scans (may get a contrast agent through an intravenous (IV) catheter) Participants will have a bone marrow aspiration and/or biopsy. A needle will be put into the hipbone. Bone marrow will be removed. Participants may give blood, tissue, saliva, or cheek swab samples. They may have optional biopsies. Screening tests will be repeated during the study. Treatment will be given for up to 6 cycles. Each cycle lasts 21 days. Participants will take venetoclax and prednisone tablets by mouth. They will take ibrutinib and lenalidomide capsules by mouth. They will get obinutuzumab and polatuzumab by IV infusion. They will keep a medicine diary. Participants will visit the clinic 30 days after treatment ends. They will have follow-up visits for 5 years. If needed, they can visit their local doctor instead. They may be contacted by phone, mail, etc., for the rest of their life....
