This is phase II study. Efficacy and safety evaluation of IBI308 in patients with
relapsed/refractory extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type: a multicenter, single arm.
Extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type(ENKTL) accounts for about 6% of all lymphomas in
china. Epstein Barr virus (EBV) infection is found in all cases of ENKTL and maybe plays an
important pathogenetic role.
Conventional anthrocycline-based regimens are not preferred to be used in ENKTL because of
high p-glycoprotein expression. ORR of L-asparaginase based regimens is about 80% and no
salvage regimens are recommended in ENKTL so far after failure of L-asparaginase based
Recently, a phase II clinical trial result demonstrated high ORR of anti-PD-1 antibody
treatment in ENKTL.IBI308, a humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb) directly against PD-1, is
investigated in this phase II Chinese ENKTL clinical trial.
Additionally the correlation between PD-L1 expression and the response to IBI308 treatment in
Chinese ENKTL subjects will also be assessed.

transplantation can enroll.
