MTD of alisertib defined as the highest dose tested in which less than 33% of patients experienced dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) v4.0 [ Time Frame: 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
The toxicities observed at each dose level will be summarized in terms of type (organ affected or laboratory determination such as absolute neutrophil count), severity (by NCI CTCAE version 4.0) and nadir or maximum values for the laboratory measures, time of onset (i.e. course number), duration, and reversibility or outcome. Tables will be created to summarize these toxicities and side effects by dose and by course.

Alisertib in Combination With Vorinostat in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Recurrent Hodgkin Lymphoma, B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma
Phase I Study of the Aurora Kinase A Inhibitor MLN8237 in Combination With the Histone Deacetylase Inhibitor Vorinostat in Lymphoid Malignancies

This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of alisertib when given together with vorinostat in treating patients with relapsed or recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma, B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Alisertib and vorinostat may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving alisertib together with vorinostat may kill more cancer cells.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of MLN8237 (alisertib) when given in combination with vorinostat and to select a dose and schedule for further testing (recommended Phase 2 dose: RP2D) in patients with lymphoid malignancies.

II. To describe the toxicities of MLN8237 when given in combination with vorinostat on a 21-day schedule.

III. To determine any clinical responses with MLN8237 in combination with vorinostat.

IV. To compare the plasma pharmacokinetics of MLN8237 when given alone and in combination with vorinostat.

V. To perform immunohistochemistry (IHC) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis to determine aurora kinase A (AURKA) expression in archival formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections from the most recent available tumor specimens of patients.

VI. To perform correlative studies for apoptosis and proliferation on bone marrow and lymph node specimens, where available, obtained from patients in the expanded cohort at RP2D.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of alisertib.

Patients receive alisertib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-7 or days 1-3 and 8-10, and vorinostat PO BID on days 1-14 or days 1-5 and 8-12. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for at least 30 days.
