A Pilot Study of Siltuximab in Large Granular Lymphocytic Leukemia (LGLL)
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of siltuximab for participants being treated for large granular lymphocytic leukemia (LGLL).
1. To evaluate the overall response (OR) rate including CR and PR of Siltuximab at dose of 11mg/kg iv infusion q3 weeks;
2. To evaluate the duration of response (DOR), time to response (TTR), complete response (CR) rate, duration of CR, time to CR, rate of CR with normalization of peripheral blood (PB) LGL count, rate of complete molecular remission (CMR), and progression-free survival (PFS);
3. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of Siltuximab in patients with LGLL
