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

NCT03223610

Description:

Background: B-cell lymphoma is a cancer of white blood cells found in the lymph nodes. It affects the system that fights infections and disease. Researchers want to learn how certain drugs work together to treat B-cell lymphomas. The drugs are venetoclax, ibrutinib, prednisone, obinutuzumab, and lenalidomide (ViPOR). Objective: To study the safety of ViPOR for people with B-cell lymphoma. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with B-cell lymphoma whose cancer has returned or not improved after treatment Design: Participants will be screened with: - Medical history - Physical exam - Blood, urine, and heart tests - Tissue sample from previous procedure - Imaging scans - Registration for counseling on the risks of lenalidomide. They must get counseling at least every 28 days. Participants will have a bone marrow aspiration before treatment. Participants may have tumor samples taken. Participants will get ViPOR in 21-day cycles. For up to 6 cycles: - Participants will get one drug by IV on days 1 and 2. - Participants will take the other four drugs by mouth on most days. After their first dose of venetoclax, they will stay in the clinic for at least 8 hours and return the next day for monitoring. They may be admitted for more drugs or monitoring. Participants will keep a drug diary. Participants will have a physical exam and blood and urine tests at least once per cycle. They will have scans 4 times over 6 cycles. Participants will have a visit about 1 month after their last dose of study drug. They will then have visits every few months for 3 years, and once a year for years 4 and 5. Visits include a physical exam, blood tests, and scans.

Detailed Description

      Background:

        -  Combination chemotherapy with Rituximab has been the mainstay of treatment for CD20-
           positive B-cell lymphomas

        -  Significant advances have been made in curing aggressive B-cell lymphomas with
           chemoimmunotherapy but indolent lymphomas and relapsed/refractory aggressive lymphomas
           remain mostly incurable with chemotherapy alone

        -  Targeted therapies aimed at disrupting key survival pathways in lymphoid malignancies
           are emerging and showing significant activity in NHL in both the relapsed and first-line
           settings

        -  Mechanistically-based combinations of targeted agents are likely to benefit patients who
           cannot tolerate or who relapse after or are refractory to standard chemoimmunotherapy

        -  ViPOR targets major survival pathways in B-cell lymphomas including BCL-2 (apoptosis);
           BTK (B-cell receptor signaling and NFKB); Cereblon (NFKB) and CD20.

      Objectives:

        -  Phase 1b: To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the safety and toxicity
           profile of the combination of Venetoclax, Ibrutinib, Prednisone, Obinutuzumab and
           Revlimid (ViPOR) in relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies

        -  Phase 2: To determine the overall response rate (ORR) and complete response (CR) rate of
           ViPOR in relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies

      Eligibility:

        -  Women and men greater than or equal to 18 years of age

        -  ECOG performance status of less than or equal to 2

        -  Histologically or cytologically confirmed relapsed and/or refractory B-cell lymphoma
           excluding CLL/SLL. NOTE: untreated MCL is included in the phase 2 MCL expansion.

        -  Adequate organ function unless dysfunction secondary to lymphoma effect

      Design:

        -  Open-label, single-center, non-randomized phase 1b/2 study

        -  Phase 1b: Standard '3 + 3' design will be used to determine the MTD of dose-escalated
           venetoclax with fixed dose ibrutinib, prednisone, obinutuzumab and Revlimid (ViPOR) in
           relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies

        -  Phase 2: Expansion cohorts of aggressive and indolent non-MCL patients and MCL patients
           will be treated at the MTD to determine the ORR and CR rate in these subtypes.

        -  Maximum 6 cycles of combination targeted therapy every 21 days

        -  To explore all dose levels in both non-MCL and MCL patients cohorts in the phase 1b
           study, and to assess the ORR and CR rate in aggressive and indolent non-MCL and MCL
           patients in a phase 2 dose expansion at the MTD, the accrual ceiling will be set at 130
           patients.

             imaging (measurable lymph nodes or masses on CT or MRI and/or evaluable FDGavid
             lesions on PET).

          -  NOTE: Lesions that have been irradiated cannot be included in the tumor assessment
             unless unequivocal tumor progression has been documented in these lesions after
             radiation therapy.

          -  Age greater than or equal to 18 years

          -  NOTE: Because no dosing or adverse event data are currently available on the use of
             venetoclax in combination with ibrutinib, obinutuzumab, prednisone and Revlimid(R) in
             patients <18 years of age, children are excluded from this study, but will be eligible
             for future pediatric trials.

          -  ECOG performance status less than or equal to 2

          -  Adequate organ and marrow function as defined below unless dysfunction is secondary to
             lymphoma involvement:

                  with creatinine levels above 2 mg/dL

               -  Cr Cl will be calculated with the use of the 24-hour creatinine clearance or
                  modified Cockcroft-Gault equation (eCCR; with the use of ideal body mass [IBM]
                  instead of mass):

                  (140 Age) x IBM (kg) [0.85 if female]/ 72 x serum creatinine (mg/dL)

               -  RBC transfusions and use of G-CSF will be allowed in order to meet eligibility
                  parameters.

          -  Immune-modulating drugs (IMiDs) including Revlimid are known to be teratogenic and
             potential embryo-fetal harm can be seen with use of venetoclax and ibrutinib. The
             effects of obinutuzumab on the developing human fetus is unknown. For these reasons,
             women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception as
             described below. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she
             or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating
             physician immediately.

          -  For women of childbearing potential:

               -  Agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use a
                  contraceptive method with a failure rate of 1% per year as outlined below.

               -  Female subjects of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have a negative serum or
                  urine pregnancy test with a sensitivity of at least 25 mIU/mL within 10 14 days
                  and again within 24 hours prior to prescribing Revlimid for Cycle 1
                  (prescriptions must be filled within 7 days as required by Revlimid REMSTM) and
                  must either commit to continued abstinence from heterosexual intercourse or begin
                  TWO acceptable methods of birth control, one highly effective method and one
                  additional effective method AT THE SAME TIME, at least 28 days before she starts
                  taking Revlimid. FCBP must also agree to ongoing pregnancy testing.

               -  A woman is considered to be of childbearing potential if she is postmenarcheal,
                  has not reached a postmenopausal state (greater than or equal to 12 continuous
                  months of amenorrhea with no identified cause other than menopause), and has not
                  undergone surgical sterilization (removal of ovaries and/or uterus).

               -  Examples of contraceptive methods with a failure rate of less than 1% per year
                  include bilateral tubal ligation, male sterilization, hormonal contraceptives
                  that inhibit ovulation, hormone-releasing intrauterine devices, and copper
                  intrauterine devices.

               -  The reliability of sexual abstinence should be evaluated in relation to the
                  duration of the clinical trial and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the
                  patient. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, or
                  postovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of
                  contraception.

          -  For men:

               -  Agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use
                  contraceptive measures, and agreement to refrain from donating sperm, as defined
                  below:

               -  With female partners of childbearing potential, men must remain abstinent or use
                  a condom plus an additional contraceptive method that together result in a
                  failure rate of less than 1% per year as noted below. Men must refrain from
                  donating sperm during this same period.

               -  With pregnant female partners, men must remain abstinent or use a condom as noted
                  below to avoid exposing the embryo.

               -  The reliability of sexual abstinence should be evaluated in relation to the
                  duration of the clinical trial and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the
                  patient. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, or
                  postovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of
                  contraception.

        medication used, whenever possible.

          -  Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to the following that may
             limit interpretation of results or that could increase risk to the patient at the
             discretion of the investigator:

               -  Symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac
                  arrhythmia

               -  Uncontrolled and/or symptomatic thyroid disease

               -  Known active bacterial, viral, fungal, mycobacterial, parasitic, or other
                  infection (excluding fungal infections of nail beds) at study enrollment, or any
                  major episode of infection requiring treatment with IV antibiotics or
                  hospitalization (relating to the completion of the course of antibiotics) within
                  2 weeks prior to Cycle 1, Day 1;

               -  Known infection with human T-cell leukemia virus 1 (HTLV-1)

               -  Clinically significant history of liver disease, including viral or other
                  hepatitis, current alcohol abuse, or cirrhosis; as well as active infection with
                  HBV or HCV:

                    -  Patients who are positive for HCV antibody must be negative for HCV by
                       polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to be eligible for study participation

                    -  Patients with occult or prior HBV infection (defined as positive total
                       hepatitis B core antibody [HBcAb] and negative HBsAg) may be included if HBV
                       DNA is undetectable. These patients must be willing to undergo monthly DNA
                       testing during treatment and for at least 12 months after completion of
                       study therapy.

               -  Malabsorption syndrome or other condition that precludes enteral route of
                  administration

               -  Psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study
                  requirements

          -  Pregnant women, or women who intent to become pregnant during the study, are excluded
             from this study because Revlimid has known teratogenic effects and venetoclax,
             ibrutinib and obinutuzumab are agents with the potential for teratogenic or
             abortifacient effects. Because there is an unknown but potential risk for adverse
             events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with these agents,
             breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated on study.

          -  HIV-positive patients are ineligible because of the potential for pharmacokinetic
             interactions with venetoclax, ibrutinib and Revlimid and combination antiretroviral
             therapy. In addition, these patients are at increased risk of lethal infections when
             treated with marrow-suppressive therapy. Appropriate studies will be undertaken in
             patients receiving combination antiretroviral therapy when indicated.

          -  Evidence of active tumor lysis syndrome based on laboratory assessment

          -  History of recent major surgery within 6 weeks prior to the start of Cycle 1, Day 1
             other than for diagnosis

          -  Receipt of live-virus vaccines within 28 days prior to the initiation of study
             treatment

          -  History of other active malignancy that could affect compliance with the protocol or
             interpretation of results

               -  Patients with a history of curatively treated basal or squamous cell carcinoma or
                  stage 1 melanoma of the skin as well as any in situ carcinoma are eligible.

               -  Patients with a malignancy that has been treated with curative intent will also
                  be eligible. Individuals in documented remission without treatment for greater
                  than or equal to 2 years prior to enrollment may be included at the discretion of
                  the investigator.

          -  Known allergy to both xanthine oxidase inhibitors and rasburicase; or, known
             hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs
