  • Phase II Study of Dose-Adjusted EPOCH-Rituximab in Adults With Untreated Burkitt Lymphoma and c-MYC+ Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
  • Background: - Burkitt lymphoma/leukemia (BL) is highly treatable, but most of the standard therapies require multiple doses of intensive chemotherapy that may require long hospital stays and frequently have severe side effects. In addition, BL is a fairly common type of cancer in patients who also have human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), but treatment outcomes are poor because standard treatments do not work very well in HIV-positive patients and the more intense treatment regimens are highly toxic. New approaches are needed that expand the ways to treat BL with the same efficiency but with reduced side effects. - DA-EPOCH-R is a standard chemotherapy treatment that consists of the drugs etoposide, prednisone, vincristine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and rituximab. It may be able to treat BL with similar effectiveness but with fewer side effects. Researchers are interested in confirming the results of previous studies that investigated the effectiveness of DA-EPOCH-R in treating BL. Objectives: - To determine the safety and effectiveness of DA-EPOCH-R in treating Burkitt lymphoma. Eligibility: - Individuals at least 18 years of age who have been diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma and have not had any prior chemotherapy treatments. Design: - Individuals will have a series of blood and other tests to determine their suitability for participating in the study. Eligible participants will be divided into high-risk and low-risk groups based on their disease prognosis and the possibility that the BL may or already has spread into the central nervous system. - Participants will receive intravenous infusion of the six chemotherapy drugs in DA-EPOCH-R in 21-day treatment cycles. The exact doses will be adjusted depending on participants' white blood cell counts and other tests. - High-risk participants will receive six cycles of DA-EPOCH-R. To treat BL that may have entered the central nervous system, high-risk participants will also receive infusions of other chemotherapy drugs into their spinal fluid. - Low-risk participants will receive up to six cycles of DA-EPOCH-R, with an additional dose of rituximab during each cycle. - Frequent blood and urine tests will be performed during treatment, as well as body imaging scans and other tests of cancer progression as directed by the study doctors. Participants will receive additional medicines to help prevent possible adverse side effects of DA-EPOCH-R. - Participants who respond successfully to the treatment will be asked to return for follow-up exams every 3 months for the first 18 months, then every year for the next 3 years. Participants who do not respond successfully to the treatment will be given the opportunity to participate in additional research and treatment protocols, if any are available.

  • Open-label, Uncontrolled Phase II Trial of Intravenous PI3K Inhibitor BAY80-6946 in Patients With Relapsed, Indolent or Aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas
  • The objective of the study (part A) is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BAY80-6946 in patients with indolent or aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, who have progressed after standard therapy. 30 patients will be enrolled to both indolent and aggressive disease group. The objective of the study part B is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BAY80-6946 in patients with relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma. 120 patients will be enrolled in the part B of the study. Further objectives are to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and biomarkers. Quality of life will be a further objective of part B of the study. In a cohort of 20 patients (enrolled both in part A and B) an ECG substudy will be performed to assess the potential for cardiac toxicity and QT/QTc interval prolongation of BAY80-6946. After an up to 28-day screening period, eligible patients will start treatment with BAY80-6946 at a dose of 0.8 mg/kg (Part A) and at a dose of 60 mg (Part B). Treatment will be continued until disease has progressed or until another criterion is met for withdrawal from study. An end-of-treatment visit will be performed within 7 days after discontinuation of study treatment. Thirty to 35 days after last study drug administration, a safety followup visit will be performed for the collection of adverse events (AEs) and concomitant medication data. Patients will be contacted quarterly to determine overall survival status up to 3 years after last patient first treatment. In Part B, patients will enter the Active Assessment Followup Period. The end of study notification to Health Authorities will be based on the completion of the collection of survival data. The efficacy is measured by the decrease in tumor size. Tumor assessments will be done at Screening, every 8 weeks during Year 1, every 12 weeks during Year 2, and every 6 months during Year 3. Blood samples will be collected for pharmacokinetic analysis. Archival tumor tissue and blood samples will be collected for biomarker analysis (mandatory) and for central pathology review (part B), fresh biopsy tissue will also be collected if available.
