Brief Summary:
This study is a phase 1, dose finding, open-label study in patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). This is a dose escalating study to define the maximum tolerable dose of lutetium (177Lu)-lilotomab satetraxetan (Betalutin®) in DLBCL patients who are not eligible for autologous stem cell transplant. The study will also assess safety and toxicity, pharmacokinetics, biodistribution and efficacy.

Drug Information available for: Lutetium

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Betalutin
10 MBq/kg b.w., in escalated doses with lilotomab pre-dosing
Drug: Betalutin
Dose finding study, starting on 10 MBq/kg b.w. Betalutin® (lutetium (177Lu)-lilotomab satetraxetan), single injection with lilotomab pre-dosing.
Other Name: Betalutin, lutetium (177Lu)-lilotomab satetraxetan

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    To determine the maximum tolerated dose of Betalutin that can be given to patients with relapsed/refractory, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, not eligible for autologous stem cell transplant.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The best overall tumour response rate [ Time Frame: 3 months - 2 years ]
    Efficacy evaluations are measured by tumour response rates using CT and PET/CT imaging with responses classified according to revised response criteria for NHL (Cheson, 2014).

  2. Dosimetry [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
    Dosimetry will be evaluated by the estimated absorbed radiation dose to target organs.

    6. Adequate renal function as demonstrated by a serum creatinine ≤1.5 mg/dL or a creatinine clearance >60 mL/min;
    7. Normal coagulation parameters (elevated international normalized ratio (INR), prothrombin time or activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) ≤1.3 ULN range acceptable).

    1. understand that the study medication may have teratogenic risk
    2. have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening and before Betalutin injection
    3. commit to continued abstinence from heterosexual intercourse (excluding periodic abstinence or the withdrawal method) or begin two acceptable methods of birth control with a Pearl-Index ≤ 1%. without interruption from 4 weeks before starting study drug, throughout study drug therapy and for 12 months after end of study drug therapy, even if she has amenorrhoea. Apart from abstinence, acceptable methods of birth control are:

      • Combined (estrogen and progestogen containing) hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation

  3. Previous total body irradiation, or irradiation of >25% of the patient's bone marrow.
  4.

    2. cervical carcinoma in situ;
    3. superficial bladder cancer;
    4. localized prostate cancer undergoing surveillance or surgery;

    5. history of erythema multiforme, toxic epidermal necrolysis or Stevens-Johnson syndrome;
    6. cardiac conditions, including

      • history of acute coronary syndromes (including unstable angina)
