About the Trial

PK,PD, Safety and Tolerability of Multiple Dose Regimens of MT-3724 With Lenalidomide for the Treatment of Patients With Relapsed/Refractory B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (MT-3724_NHL_003)

This is a multi-center, open-label two-part study evaluating the safety and tolerability of MT-3724 in combination with Lenalidomide in relapsed or refractory CD20 positive B-cell Lymphoma patients.

Part 1: (MT-3724 Dose Escalation) Define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of MT-3724 in combination with standard treatment of Lenalidomide

Part 2: (MTD Expansion Cohort) Confirm the safety and tolerability of the MTD of MT-3724 from Part 1 in the MTD Expansion Cohort, where MT-3724 will be given at the MTD in combination with Lenalidomide. In addition, the PK, PD, immunogenicity and tumor response at the MTD of MT-3724 in combination with Lenalidomide will be more thoroughly evaluated in Part 2.

It is anticipated that up to 64 patients will be enrolled. Treatment will continue until disease progression, withdrawal of consent or any other reason.

  • Subjects must meet ALL the following criteria to be eligible for the study.

    1. Be adequately informed about the study and fully consent to participation as demonstrated by signing the written informed consent form before any screening procedure.
    2. Men or Women , age 18 years or older Have relapsed or refractory B-cell NHL that, in the investigator's opinion, could benefit from MT-3724+LEN therapy.
    3. At least one histology documented relapse of NHL by:

      1. Bone marrow biopsy (FNA is not acceptable)
      2. Excisional lymph node biopsy or
      3. Core biopsy of any involved organ (FNA not acceptable)
      4. CD20-positive histology must have been confirmed at any time during NHL disease course and documented in the medical history.
      5. If no histology is available after any relapse the investigator can consult the medical monitor to discuss if the patient can be included
    4. All subtypes of B-cell NHL may be considered for Part 1 (MT-3724 dose escalation). Only histologically documented DLBCL (including mixed histology) may be considered for Part 2 (expansion cohort)
    5. Have received all available approved therapies for NHL. Those subjects who are ineligible for approved therapies in the opinion of the investigator, or have refused such therapies, will be eligible.
    6. Have measurable disease by Lugano Classification for NHL (see Appendix 4):

      1. >1.5 cm longest diameter (LDi) for lymph nodes
      2. >1.0 cm LDi for extra nodal disease.
    7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance score of ≤2
    8. Have adequate bone marrow function, as determined by all the following:

      1. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1,000/mm³
      2. Platelet count ≥50,000 mm³
    9. Have adequate kidney function, assessed by the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥60 mL/min calculated by the CPK-EPI equation.

      a. At the investigator's discretion, the eGFR result <60 mL/min may be verified by measurement of creatinine clearance (CLcr) based on the 24-hour urine collection. Subjects with CLcr ≥60 mL/min will be eligible irrespective of the eGFR result.

    10. Have adequate hepatic function, as determined by:

      1. Total bilirubin ≤1.5 x ULN, or ≤3 x ULN for subjects with Gilbert's Syndrome) and
      2. AST ≤3 x ULN and
      3. ALT ≤3 x ULN
    11. Have adequate coagulation, as determined by:

      1. INR or PT ≤1.5 x ULN
      2. PTT ≤1.5 x ULN
    12. Have adequate serum albumin, as determined by:

      a. Albumin ≥ 3.0 g/dL

    13. Women of reproductive potential must have a negative pregnancy test on 2 occasions during the screening period (within 10-14 days and within 24 hours before the start of treatment). Women not of reproductive potential are female subjects who are postmenopausal or permanently sterilized (e.g., hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy).
    14. Males must agree to always use a latex or synthetic condom during any sexual contact with females of reproductive potential while taking LEN and for up to 4 weeks after discontinuing LEN, even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy. Male patients taking LEN must not donate sperm.
    15. Subjects of reproductive potential and their partners must agree to either to abstain continuously from heterosexual intercourse or to use 2 methods of reliable birth control simultaneously to begin 4 weeks prior to initiating treatment with LEN until 28 days after the last dose of MT-3724 or LEN. The investigator or a designated associate should advise the subject how to achieve adequate contraception. The following birth control methods may be considered: one highly effective form of contraception - tubal ligation, IUD, hormonal (birth control pills, injections, hormonal patches, vaginal rings, or implants), or partner's vasectomy, and one additional effective contraceptive method - male latex or synthetic condom, diaphragm, or cervical cap.

About Diffuse Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

About Diffuse Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a type of cancer that starts in white blood cells called lymphocytes. There are two types of lymphoma: Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's, and the each behave, grow, and respond to treatment differently. There are several types of DLBCL, with the most common being non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
