  Purpose

This is a Phase II, single institution, single-arm, open-label study of oral dasatinib monotherapy administered to subjects with relapsed or refractory aggressive DLBCL.

This study will be conducted in two phases: a Treatment Phase and a Follow-up Phase.

Research Hypothesis: Dasatinib, when administered orally at a continuous dose of 100 mg once daily, will be safe and effective in treating subjects that have failed prior therapies to diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) or have relapsed disease.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the efficacy of dasatinib monotherapy in relapsed or refractory aggressive Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL). Efficacy will be assessed by measuring the response rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety of dasatinib monotherapy as treatment for subjects with relapsed or refractory aggressive DLBCL. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To determine potential correlatives of response. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Serum SGOT/AST or SGPT/ALT < 2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN).

  • Concomitant medications:

    1. Patient agrees to discontinue St. Johns Wort while receiving dasatinib
    2. IV biphosphonates will be withheld for the first 8 weeks of dasatinib therapy due to risk of hypocalcemia.
  • Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must agree to use two reliable forms of contraception simultaneously or to practice complete abstinence from heterosexual intercourse during the following time periods related to this study: 1) for at least 28 days before starting study drug; 2) while participating in the study; and 3) for at least 28 days after discontinuation from the study. The two methods of reliable contraception must include one highly effective method (i.e. intrauterine device (IUD), hormonal [birth control pills, injections, or implants], tubal ligation, partner's vasectomy) and one additional effective (barrier) method (i.e. latex condom, diaphragm, cervical cap). FCBP must be referred to a qualified provider of contraceptive methods if needed.
  • Before starting study drug:
  • Female Subjects: FCBP must have two negative pregnancy tests (sensitivity of at least 50 mIU/mL) prior to starting study drug. The first pregnancy test must be performed within 10-14 days prior to the start of study drug and the second pregnancy test must be performed within 24 hours prior to the start of study drug. The subject may not receive study drug until the Investigator has verified that the results of these pregnancy tests are negative; Will be warned that sharing study drug is prohibited and will be counseled about pregnancy precautions and potential risks of fetal exposure; Must agree to abstain from donating blood during study participation and for at least 28 days after discontinuation from the study.
  • Male Subjects: Must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with females of childbearing potential while participating in the study and for at least 28 days following discontinuation from the study even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy; Will be warned that sharing study drug is prohibited and will be counseled about pregnancy precautions and potential risks of fetal exposure; Must agree to abstain from donating blood, semen, or sperm during study participation and for at least 28 days after discontinuation from the study.
  • During study participation and for 28 days following discontinuation from the study:
  • All Subjects: No more than a 30-day supply of study drug will be dispensed at a time.

Female Subjects:

  • FCBP with regular cycles must agree to have pregnancy tests weekly for the first 28 days of study participation and then every 28 days while on study, at study discontinuation, and at day 28 following discontinuation from the study. If menstrual cycles are irregular, the pregnancy testing must occur weekly for the first 28 days and then every 14 days while on study, at study discontinuation, and at days 14 and 28 following discontinuation from the study.
  • In addition to the required pregnancy testing, the Investigator must confirm with FCBP that she is continuing to use two reliable methods of birth control at each visit.
  • Counseling about pregnancy precautions and the potential risks of fetal exposure must be conducted at a minimum of every 28 days. During counseling, subjects must be reminded to not share study drug and to not donate blood.

  • Known positive for HIV.
  • Pregnant or lactating females.
  • Concomitant Medications: Category I drugs that are generally accepted to have a risk of causing Torsades de Pointes including: (Patients must discontinue drug 7 days prior to starting dasatinib) quinidine, procainamide, disopyramide, amiodarone, sotalol, ibutilide, dofetilide, erythromycin, clarithromycin, chlorpromazine, haloperidol, mesoridazine, thioridazine, pimozide, cisapride, bepridil, droperidol, methadone, arsenic, chloroquine, domperidone,halofantrine, levomethadyl, pentamidine, sparfloxacin, lidoflazine

    2. Diagnosed acquired bleeding disorder within one year (e.g., acquired anti-factor VIII antibodies)
    3. Ongoing or recent (< = 3 months) clinically significant gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Cardiac symptoms within 6 months:

    1. Uncontrolled angina, congestive heart failure, or MI
    2. History of clinically significant ventricular arrythmias: fibrillation, Torsades de pointes, or tachycardia.
    3. Prolonged QTc interval on pre-entry electrocardiogram (> 450msec).
  • Prior use of dasatinib.
  • Use of any standard or experimental anti-cancer drug therapy within 28 days of the initiation (Day 1) of study drug therapy.
