Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Clinical Trial

A Study of PCI-32765 (Ibrutinib) in Combination With Either Bendamustine and Rituximab or Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone in Participants With Previously Treated Indolent Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PCI-32765 (ibrutinib) administered in combination with either bendamustine and rituximab (BR) or rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) in adult participants with previously treated indolent Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Full Description

This is a randomized (individuals assigned to study treatment by chance), double-blind (individuals and study personnel will not know the identity of study treatments), placebo (an inactive substance that is compared with a drug to test whether the drug has a real effect in a clinical trial)-controlled study in approximately 400 adult participants with follicular lymphoma or marginal zone lymphoma. The study will include the following phases: Screening, Treatment, and a Post-treatment Follow-up. Eligible participants will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to either treatment Arm A (background immune-chemotherapy + placebo) or treatment Arm B (background immune-chemotherapy + 560 milligram [mg] of ibrutinib). All participants will receive 6 cycles of background immune-chemotherapy with either BR or R-CHOP in combination with either placebo (Arm A) or ibrutinib (Arm B). Selection of background immune-chemotherapy will be based on prior treatment history and cardiac function. After completion of background immune-chemotherapy, study drug (ibrutinib or placebo) will continue until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or study end, whichever comes first. Assessment of tumor response and progression will be conducted in accordance with the Revised Response Criteria for Malignant Lymphoma. Serial pharmacokinetic (study of what a drug does to the body) blood samples will be collected. Safety will be assessed throughout the study.

Men must agree not to donate sperm during and after the study for 6 months after the last dose of bendamustine, 12 months after the last dose of rituximab, or 3 months after the last dose of study medication, whichever is later
Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test at Screening

Exclusion Criteria:
