Phase phase 2
Targets CD20, proteasome
Sponsor Medical University of Vienna
Start date January 2005
End date January 2007
Trial size 16 participants
Trial identifier NCT00261612, 2004-002150-64, MCL 03


Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) remains difficult to treat by standard treatment approaches. Novel drugs have shown promising results in early clinical evaluations. In the current trial, we investigate a combination of bortezomib (a proteasome inhibitor), rituximab (a monoclonal antibody), and dexamethasone in patients with MCL, who have already been pretreated by standard chemotherapy and show again signs of disease progression. The study objectives include remission rates, safety of this drug combination, and survival time.
