SCCA Lymphoma Clinical Trials

Alisertib (MLN8237) for Relapsed/Refractory Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma (UW12009)
A Phase 3, Randomized, Two-Arm, Open-Label, Multicenter, International Trial of Alisertib (MLN8237) or Investigator's Choice (Selected Single Agent) in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed T-Cell Lymphoma Phase III UW12009

This is a phase 3, randomized, 2-arm, open-label, international trial evaluating alisertib compared with single-agent treatment, as selected by the investigator from the offered options of pralatrexate or gemcitabine or romidepsin, in patients with relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). Note: romidepsin will not be used as a single-agent comparator in countries that do not permit its use at this time.

  • History of uncontrolled sleep apnea syndrome or other conditions that could result in excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Cardiac condition as specified in study protocol, including left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <40%
