Purpose

This study is a phase Ib, single arm, open label clinical trial that will enroll patients with untreated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLCBL) at moderate or high risk for poor outcome

Detailed Description

      This study is a phase Ib, single arm, open label clinical trial that will enroll patients
      with untreated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLCBL) at moderate or high risk for poor
      outcome, defined as an NCCN-IPI score of 2 or higher. Each patient's disease will be
      biologically characterized at baseline. Enrolled patients will receive chemoimmunotherapy
      with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP),
      administered every 21 days for 6 cycles, which is the standard of care. In addition, all
      patients will receive the study drug, roflumilast, at the standard dose of 500 μg by mouth
      once daily, throughout the 18-week treatment period.

          -  Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-2.

          -  Life expectancy of ≥3 months.

          -  Ann Arbor stage II-IV

          -  Measurable disease, meaning at least 1 lymph node or other lymphomatous lesion with a
             long axis of ≥1.5 cm by CT imaging, and at least one FDG-avid lesion by FDG-PET scan.

          -  Left ventricular ejection fraction of at least 45% by either echocardiography or
             radionucleotide angiography.

          -  Ability to swallow oral tablets without difficulty.

          -  All subjects with preserved reproductive potential must agree to practice abstinence
             or employ contraceptive measures for the duration of treatment and for 4 weeks
             following final dosing. All male subjects are considered to have reproductive
             potential. Female subjects of reproductive potential are those who: 1) are not at
             least 50 years old and have no menses for 24 consecutive months; or 2) have not been
             rendered surgically sterile (having undergone hysterectomy and/or bilateral
             salpingo-oophorectomy). Female subjects of reproductive potential must have a negative
             serum pregnancy test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of human
             chorionic gonadotropin ([hCG]) within 7 days of first day of drug dosing.

          -  Meet the following clinical laboratory requirements: - Creatinine clearance ≥30 ml/min
             by Cockcroft-Gault formula ; - Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN)
             (unless indirect bilirubin is elevated due to Gilbert's syndrome or hemolysis); - AST
             and ALT≤ 3 × ULN; - Platelet count ≥ 50,000/μL, with or without transfusion support; -
             ANC ≥ 1000/μL, with or without chronic granulocyte growth factor support; - Hemoglobin
             ≥8 g/dL, with or without transfusion support.

        Exclusion Criteria:

          -  Allergy or intolerance to roflumilast.

          -  Any active malignancy other than DLBCL

          -  Prior allogeneic bone marrow transplant within 12 months of screening date.

          -  Prior autologous stem cell transplant within 6 months of screening date.

          -  Immunotherapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or investigational therapy within 6 months
             prior to drug dosing.

             symptomatic epidural disease

          -  Active uncontrolled infection.

             failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] Class III or IV heart failure), unstable
             angina pectoris, uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia, and psychiatric illness that would
             limit compliance with study requirements.
