SGN-35 w/ CHOP for Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma
A Phase 1 Study of Brentuximab Vedotin Administered Sequentially and Concurrently With Multi-Agent Chemotherapy as Front-Line Therapy in Patients With Systemic Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Anaplastic Large-Cell Lymphoma Phase I NCT01309789

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety profile of brentuximab vedotin (SGN-35) sequentially and in combination with multi-agent chemotherapy in front-line treatment for systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma. This is a phase 1, open-label, dose escalation study in three arms designed to define the MTD, PK, immunogenicity, and anti-tumor activity of brentuximab vedotin in sequence and in combination with multi-agent front-line chemotherapy.

Patients must be at least 18 years of age with a confirmed ALCL diagnosis that is either ALK-positive (Stage 3-4) or ALK-negative (all stages). Patients will be treated with a maximum of 16 cycles of the study drug along with other chemotherapy drugs, if applicable. They will be followed very closely with regular blood draws and clinic visits, along with drug infusions and with periodic disease restaging exams and radiology scans.
