Brief Title † Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) Inhibition in B-cell Lymphomas
Official Title † A Phase Ib Study of Ibrutinib Combined With R-DHAP or R-DHAOx in Patients With B-cell Lymphomas
Brief Summary This is an open label, multicenter, dose escalation, phase Ib study to determine the recommended dose by assessing the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety and efficacy of ibrutinib in combination with R-DHAP (Group A/Abis) or R-DHAOx (Group B/Bbis) for patients with B-cell malignancies. This dose escalation will be followed by an exploratory expansion phase in 3 groups of 12 patients each (Group A/Abis, Group B/B bis and Group C). During Part 1 Dose Escalation, the "3+3" design will be applied. Three doses of ibrutinib (280, 420 and 560 mg) will be examined sequentially in each cohort by the Dose Escalation Committee. Dose escalation will begin at dose level 1 = 420 mg. The dose escalation will be performed for two types of associations in four separate groups : - Group A : ibrutinib D1-D21+ R-DHAP - Group B : ibrutinib D1-D21 R-DHAOx - Group Abis : ibrutinib D5-D18+ R-DHAP - Group Bbis : ibrutinib D5-D18 R-DHAOx This dose escalation will be followed by an exploratory expansion phase in the same 2 groups A/Abis and B/Bbis plus a third one including only mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) in first line patients: group C. Patients included in the Group C will receive ibrutinib in combination with R-DHAP or R-DHAOx according to the choice of the local investigator at time of inclusion of each patient.
Detailed Description The primary objective of this study is to determine the recommended dose of ibrutinib when administered in combination with R-DHAP (rituximab + dexamethasone + cytarabine + cisplatin) or with R-DHAOx (rituximab + dexamethasone + cytarabine + oxaliplatin) in patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell malignancies eligible for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) by assessing the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) observed during the dose escalation part of the study. Assessment of the MTD will be performed by the analysis of the dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs).

Each patient (or their legally acceptable representative) must sign an informed consent form (ICF) indicating that he or she understands the purpose of and procedures required for the study and are willing to participate in the study 3. Patients eligible for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) for whom R-DHAP or R-DHAOx is an acceptable therapy regarding the investigator's opinion 4. Measurable disease defined by at least one single node or tumor lesion > 1.5 cm 5. Patients who received prior therapy with at least one but no more than two lines therapies for B-Cell Lymphoma (except for patients included in group C during the expansion part of the study) 6. Aged between 18 years and 70 years (included) 7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-2 8. Any of the following hematology values within 14 days prior to inclusion and prior to the first dose of study drug : 1. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) > 1,000 cells/mm3 (1.0 x 109/L) unless if bone marrow infiltration from lymphoma 2. Spontaneous Platelets count > 75,000 cells/mm3 (75 x 109/L) within 7 days of any platelet transfusion (allowed up to 50 x 109/L if due to bone marrow infiltration from lymphoma) 9. Patients assessed as being able to receive full doses of R-DHA(P/Ox) for 3 cycles or 4 cycles for patients included in group C of the expansion phase 10. Life expectancy of ≥ 90 days (3 months) 11. Women of childbearing potential* and men who are sexually active must be practicing a highly effective method of birth control during the study and during 12 months after the end of treatments. Men must agree to not donate sperm during the study and during 12 months after the end of treatments 12. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum beta human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) or urine pregnancy test at Screening Exclusion Criteria: 1. Previous treatment with a BTK inhibitor 2. Patients who progressed or became refractory while on treatment with a phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitors 3. Inability to tolerate 4 courses of high dose ara-C / platin compound, especially if due to underlying comorbidities 4.

Known bleeding diathesis 7. Condition that requires therapeutic anticoagulation with Vitamin K antagonists 8. Condition that requires treatment with a strong cytochrome P450 3A4/5 (CYP3A4/5) inhibitor 9. Any life-threatening illness, serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, organ system dysfunction or psychiatric illness which, in the investigator's opinion, could compromise the patient's safety, interfere with the absorption or metabolism of ibrutinib capsules, or put the study outcomes at undue risk and that would prevent the patient from signing the informed consent form 10.
