This study is a multicenter, open-label, uncontrolled, phase II trial aimed to establish the safety and tolerability of venetoclax, atezolizumab and obinutuzumab combination in Richter Transformation of CLL.


This study is a multicenter, open-label, uncontrolled, phase II trial. Initial safety run phase is designed to establish the safety and tolerability of venetoclax, atezolizumab and obinutuzumab combination.

There is no dose-finding step. The doses of obinutuzumab and atezolizumab in lymphomas were previously clearly established in combination (Till BG et al. Blood 2015).

It has also been shown that in a balance between efficacy and toxicity, the recommended dose of venetoclax single-agent in Follicular Lymphoma (FL) and DLBCL was 800 mg daily (Davids MS et al. JCO 2017 ). The investigators chose the lower dose level (400 mg) for this study, also corresponding to the registered one for patients with CLL, in association with two other drugs. Nine patients having achieved 9 weeks (=3 cycles) of treatment (6 doses of obinutuzumab, 3 doses of atezolizumab, 7 weeks of venetoclax) or having discontinued treatment within the first 9 weeks of treatment will be enrolled in this cohort for safety profile. If one of these 9 patients prematurely discontinue at least one of study drugs for a reason other than safety (e.g. for disease progression), he/she will be replaced.

All AEs occurring during the course of the study will be captured, regardless of their intensity / grading. Grading of AEs will be completed according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTC-AE), version 4.0. Based on known safety profile of the 3 drugs, some adverse events of special interest will be assessed. During the initial safety run phase, all haematological toxicities and immune-related toxicities whatever the grade, and grade ≥ 2 for other toxicities will be monitored and, in this case, safety review meeting will be organized with Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) members. In case of more than 3 non-infective and non-hematologic grade ≥4 adverse events in the initial safety run cohort that according to the experience of the investigators are considered related to the combination treatment, inclusions will be stopped and IDMC members will evaluate the possibility of an early enrollment termination.

The treatment schedule applied to the initial safety run cohort will be employed for the remaining patients.

The 9 patients from the safety run will be included in the efficacy analysis. A response evaluation according with Lugano criteria for aggressive lymphomas (Cheson et al. JCO 2014) will be performed at the end of the sixth cycle to define treatment efficacy and, in case of achievement of 16 responses, treatment will be considered successful.

The planned enrollment for this study is 28 patients.

Patients will receive 35 cycles of treatment:

- From cycle 1 to cycle 8 patients will receive a combination of obinutuzumab, atezolizumab and venetoclax

- From cycle 9 to cycle 18 patients will receive atezolizumab and venetoclax

- From cycle 19 to cycle 35 patients will receive venetoclax monotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A branch of dentistry dealing with diseases of the oral and paraoral structures and the oral management of systemic diseases. (Hall, What is Oral Medicine, Anyway? Clinical Update: National Naval Dental Center, March 1991, p7-8)

The practice of personal hygiene of the mouth. It includes the maintenance of oral cleanliness, tissue tone, and general preservation of oral health.

The uptake of naked or purified DNA by CELLS, usually meaning the process as it occurs in eukaryotic cells. It is analogous to bacterial transformation (TRANSFORMATION, BACTERIAL) and both are routinely employed in GENE TRANSFER TECHNIQUES.

Disorders of the mouth attendant upon non-oral disease or injury.

Polyomavirus antigens which cause infection and cellular transformation. The large T antigen is necessary for the initiation of viral DNA synthesis, repression of transcription of the early region and is responsible in conjunction with the middle T antigen for the transformation of primary cells. Small T antigen is necessary for the completion of the productive infection cycle.
