Trial Purpose

The purpose of this study is to identify the tolerable dose of BI-1206 for patients with B-cell lymphoma and leukaemia and further evaluate BI-1206 alone and in combination with an anti-CD20 antibody

Detailed Description

The molecule CD32b is thought to be present on many B-cells including the malignant B-cells in some types of lymphoma and leukaemia. The study drug, BI-1206, is an anti-CD32b monoclonal antibody which attaches to CD32b on the surface of B-cells and is thought to act by recruiting host immune cells toward the tumour leading to cancer cell death as well as enhancing the anti-cancer effect of other anti-CD20 antibodies such as rituximab by stopping them being absorbed by cells.

The study is a first in man clinical trial of the drug called BI-1206 on its own and then also in combination with an anti-CD20 antibody (such as rituximab) which is commonly used to treat lymphoma and some types of leukaemia.

The four main aims of this trial are to find out:

- The maximum dose of BI-1206 that can be given safely to patients (to a maximum dose of 800mg) on it's own and in combination with an anti-CD20 antibody, rituximab.

- More about the potential side effects of BI-1206 and how they can be managed.

- What happens to BI-1206 inside the body.

- The effect of BI-1206 treatment (with or without rituximab) on tumour size and survival.

Approximately 81 patients with relapsed or refractory CD32b positive B-cell lymphoma or leukaemia will be entered into this study. This will include approximately 19 recruited for the BI-1206 dose escalation phase (Part A), up to 12 (likely 6) for a combination dose escalation and up to a further 50 patients recruited to two dose expansion cohorts; one of BI-1206 alone and one of BI-1206 plus rituximab (Part B). The final number will depend on the number of dose escalations required to reach the MTD.

Trial Arms

NameTypeDescriptionInterventions
Part A: BI-1206 single agent dose escalation phaseExperimentalBI-1206 given by IV infusion to all patients once weekly for a period of four weeks, patients will then have a follow-up period of four weeks (8 week period classified as induction therapy)
    Part B: Arm 1: BI-1206 single agent expansion phaseExperimentalArm 1 will be an expansion cohort of up to 25 patients treated with single agent BI-1206 at the RP2D as determined in Part A. This expansion will include a minimum of 12 chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and six mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) patients
      Part B: Arm 2: combination of BI-1206 with RituximabExperimentalArm 2 will be an investigation of combination treatment of BI-1206 with Rituximab. Arm 2 will involve an initial assessment of the appropriate dose of BI-1206 that can be given in combination with rituximab (combination dose escalation cohorts) and subsequent expansion of up to 25 patients at the identified recommended combination dose. This expansion will include a minimum of 12 CLL and six mantle cell MCL patients. CLL patients recruited to the expansion will receive one rituximab infusion, one week before commencing the four weeks of combination induction therapy.

        8. B-cell lymphoma patients only: patients has at least one measurable lesion by CT scan (defined as greater than 1.5 cm in one axis) or in the case of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, disease must be assessable by the criteria stated in Appendix 6.

        9. Patients recruited to Part B, Arm 2 (combination arm) only: CD20 positive malignancy as demonstrated by immunohistochemistry or flow cytometry prior to study entry. Analysis must have been performed within 6 months of study entry.

        Exclusion Criteria:

        2. Patients with clinically active leptomeningeal or central nervous system lymphoma/leukaemia.

        3. Patients with transformed lymphoma from a pre-existing indolent lymphoma. Patients with a previous history of transformation, but on this disease episode have a biopsy proven indolent recurrence may be included. Patients with proven or suspected Richter transformation are not eligible.

        4. Doses of prednisolone >10 mg daily (or equipotent doses of other corticosteroids) are not permitted whilst on the study other than as pre-medication. During the screening period, doses of up to 20 mg per day may be given but the dose must be reduced to 10 mg/day by Cycle 1 Day 1 (or Day -7 in the CLL combination expansion).

        8. Ongoing toxic manifestations of previous treatments. Exceptions to this are alopecia or certain Grade 1 toxicities, which in the opinion of the Investigator and the Centre for Drug Development (CDD) should not exclude the patient.

        9. Ability to become pregnant (or already pregnant or lactating). However, those female patients who have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test before enrolment and agree to use two forms of contraception (one highly effective form plus a barrier method) [oral,injected or implanted hormonal contraception and condom; intra-uterine device and condom; diaphragm with spermicidal gel and condom] or agree to sexual abstinence^4 for four weeks before entering the trial, during the trial and for twelve months after completing treatment are considered eligible.

        10. Male patients with partners of child-bearing potential (unless they agree to take measures not to father children by using a barrier method of contraception [condom plus spermicide] or to sexual abstinence effective from the first administration of BI-1206 or rituximab on the study, throughout the trial and for twelve months afterwards. Men with partners of child-bearing potential must also be willing to ensure that their partner uses an effective method of contraception for the same duration for example, hormonal contraception, intrauterine device, diaphragm with spermicidal gel or sexual abstinence4). Men with pregnant or lactating partners should be advised to use barrier method contraception (e.g. condom plus spermicidal gel) to prevent exposure to the foetus or neonate.

        20. Current malignancies of other types, with the exception of adequately treated cone-biopsied in situ carcinoma of the cervix uteri and basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. Cancer survivors, who have undergone potentially curative therapy for a prior malignancy, have no evidence of that disease for three years or more and are deemed at negligible risk for recurrence, are eligible for the trial.
