The purpose of this study is to determine the recommended dose of CMC544 administered in combination with rituximab (R-CMC544), and in alternance with rituximab, gemcitabine and oxaliplatin (R-GEMOX) in the first phase of the study. After that, efficacy and safety of this combination will be evaluated preliminarily in patients with DLBCL in relapse or refractory, who are no candidates for autologous transplant.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of the Recommended Dose of R-CMC544 [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Determination of recommended dose will be based on safety parameters and particularly on incidence of DLTs

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • OVERALL RESPONSE RATE [ Time Frame: Up to 32 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessment of response will be based on the International Workshop to Standardize Response criteria for NHL (Criteria for evaluation of response in Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (Cheson, 1999 and 2007). Patient is defined as a responder if he/she has a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) at the end of treatment. A descriptive analysis will also be performed considering as non-responders all patients who relapsed or died during treatment phase even if they were prematurely withdrawn as responder

  • PROGRESSION-FREE SURVIVAL [ Time Frame: Up to 3.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression-Free Survival will be measured from the date of inclusion to the date of first documented disease progression, relapse or death from any cause. Responding patients and patients who are lost to follow up will be censored at their last tumor assessment date.

  • EVENT FREE SURVIVAL [ Time Frame: Up to 3.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Event-Free Survival will be measured from the date of inclusion to the date of first documented disease progression, relapse, initiation of new anti-lymphoma therapy or death from any cause. Responding patients and patients who are lost to follow up will be censored at their last tumor assessment date.

  • OVERALL SURVIVAL [ Time Frame: Up to 3.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival will be measured from the date of inclusion to the date of death from any cause. Patients who are alive at the time of analysis will be censored at the date of the last contact.

  • COMPLETE RESPONSE RATE [ Time Frame: 30 or 32 weeks (depending on induction cycle length) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Assessment of response will be based on the International Workshop to Standardize Response criteria for NHL (Criteria for evaluation of response in Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (Cheson, 2007)).

    Patient without response assessment (due to whatever reason) will be considered as nonresponder.

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: December 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: R-CMC544 and R-GEMOX
Treatment with R-CMC544 and R-GEMOX
Drug: Rituximab, CMC544, Gemcitabine and Oxaliplatine

2 cycles of induction of 56 days each, starting with the administration of R-CMC544 on day 1, followed by the administration of R-GEMOX on day 29 and 43.

2 cycles of consolidation of 56 days each, starting with the administration of R-CMC544 on day 1, followed by the administration of R-GEMOX on day 29 and 43.

Detailed Description:

This study is a multicenter, phase Ib/II, open-label, single arm trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of R-CMC544 alternated with R-GEMOX in patients with CD20 and CD22 positive DLBCL in relapse after/refractory to 1st or 2nd line treatment, who are no candidates for autologous transplant.

The study consists of 2 phases. In part 1 (potential dose de-escalation phase) subjects will be enrolled at a fixed dose of CMC544. In case of occurrence of dose limiting toxicity (DLT), cohorts of 3 to 6 subjects will evaluate a de-escalating dose of CMC544 in combination with set doses of rituximab, gemcitabine and oxaliplatin in order to obtain the MTD or recommended dose of CMC544 in this regimen. In part 2 (dose expansion phase) further safety and preliminary efficacy data of the proposed combination will be analyzed.

All patients will receive two 56 day induction cycles of alternating R-CMC544 (given on day 1) and R-GEMOX (given on day 29 and 43). Patients who obtain CR or PR, will then go on a consolidation of another two 56 day cycles of alternating R-CMC544 (given on day 1) and R-GEMOX (given on day 29 and 43).

Upon registration the pathological report confirming the diagnosis, must be available
  • In first or second relapse or refractory to first and/or second line treatment. Refractory is defined as having exhibited less than or PR to a prior rituximab containing regimen or having relapsed within 6 months of the last dose of a prior rituximab containing regimen.
