Multicenter Phase II Study to Evaluate the Clinical Activity and the Safety Profile of Everolimus in Marginal Zone B-cell Lymphomas (MZL)

2014-08-27 03:12:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a multicenter open-label uncontrolled phase II study. There are no previous clinical data to estimate the expected response rate of everolimus in MALT lymphomas and in the other less common MZLs (i.e. nodal and splenic) refractory or relapsing after at least 1 prior systemic treatment (chemotherapy or immunotherapy).

The primary objective of this study is to define the antitumor activity, in term of overall response rate (ORR), as sum of complete remissions (CR) and partial remissions (PR) of everolimus in relapsed or refractory marginal zone B-cell lymphomas.

The secondary objectives of this study are to assess safety, as acute or long-term toxicity, response duration (RD) (time to relapse or progression) in responders and progression-free survival (PFS) (time to disease progression or death from any cause) in all patients.

Gemcitabine for Marginal Zone Lymphoma

Marginal zone lymphoma, one of the indolent lymphoma, is believed to be incurable with chemotherapy. Thus the investigators need a novel agent for marginal zone lymphoma. Gemcitabine has b...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Extranodal lymphoma of lymphoid tissue associated with mucosa that is in contact with exogenous antigens. Many of the sites of these lymphomas, such as the stomach, salivary gland, and thyroid, are normally devoid of lymphoid tissue. They acquire mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type as a result of an immunologically mediated disorder.

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.

The B-cell leukemia/lymphoma-1 genes, associated with various neoplasms when overexpressed. Overexpression results from the t(11;14) translocation, which is characteristic of mantle zone-derived B-cell lymphomas. The human c-bcl-1 gene is located at 11q13 on the long arm of chromosome 11.

Malignant lymphoma characterized by the presence of immunoblasts with uniformly round-to-oval nuclei, one or more prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. This class may be subdivided into plasmacytoid and clear-cell types based on cytoplasmic characteristics. A third category, pleomorphous, may be analogous to some of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, PERIPHERAL) recorded in both the United States and Japan.

A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).
