|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma, Follicular Lymphoma, Mixed-Cell, Follicular Lymphoma, Small Cleaved-Cell, Follicular Lymphoma, Low-Grade||Drug: rituximab Drug: Pixantrone (BBR 2778)||Phase 3|
This trial is being conducted in patients with indolent (or low-grade) non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, who have either relapsed or been refractory to previous treatment.
Pixantrone belongs to the DNA intercalator family of chemotherapy agents, which includes anthracyclines. DNA intercalators are commonly used to treat patients with indolent NHL, often in combination with the monoclonal antibody rituximab. This study represents the first large-scale, comparative trial in indolent NHL, designed to determine whether the response rate and time to tumour progression in patients treated with a combination of rituximab and a DNA intercalator, is significantly higher than seen in patients treated with rituximab alone.
This trial is randomized and controlled, which means that participating patients will be randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups:
- Patients treated with both pixantrone and rituximab, in combination
- Patients treated with only rituximab
This trial is expected to recruit around 800 patients in the US, Europe and Israel, with 400 patients recruited to each group.
Patients will be treated for around 18 weeks and will recieve regular physician monitoring for five years from the end of treatment.
