Trial size 77 participants
Trial identifier NCT01113632, SCRI CLL 11

Summary

The risk of immunosuppression deters many patients from receiving fludarabine, while combination chemotherapy regimens are poorly tolerated by elderly or infirm chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. Previous studies by our group and others have shown that rituximab is safe and well tolerated when used as a single agent in patients with CLL. In addition, maintenance therapy with rituximab was well tolerated by CLL patients, with probable prolongation of progression-free survival (Hainsworth et al. 2003). Based on pre clinical and clinical studies indicating possible increased efficacy of ofatumumab in patients with CLL, we wish to develop an antibody-only regimen for older patients and patients who refuse fludarabine-based regimens.

Study Design

Allocation non-randomized
Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
Ofatumumab 300mg IV Day 1 followed by ofatumumab 1000mg weekly for a total of 8 weeks
ofatumumab
IV infusion once weekly for a total of 8 weeks. Patients will visit the study center once weekly to receive their IV infusion of ofatumumab. To reduce the possibility of infusion reactions, the first dose of ofatumumab will be administered at a dose of 300 mg. If the initial 300 mg dose of ofatumumab is well tolerated, without occurrence of any infusion-associated AEs of ≥ grade 3, subsequent doses of ofatumumab (i.e., Week 2 through Week 8) will be at a dose of 2000 mg.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: 1. CD20+ B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma according to NCI criteria (see Appendix B). 2. Previously untreated CLL or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL). 3. Patients must require treatment according to NCI-Working Group guidelines (see Appendix C). 4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) of ≤2 (see Appendix A). 5. Laboratory values as follows ≤7 days of initiation of treatment: - Creatinine <3.0 mg/dL - Aspartate amino transferase (AST) or alanine amino transferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) must be <3 x upper limit of normal (ULN) - Total bilirubin <1.5 x the institutional ULN 6. Patients must be hepatitis B sAg negative. Note: Patients who are HepB sAg negative but are HepB cAb positive (regardless of HepB sAb status) will NOT be allowed. 7. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test performed ≤7 days prior to start of treatment. Women of childbearing potential or men with partners of childbearing potential must use effective birth control measures during treatment. If a woman becomes pregnant or suspects she is pregnant while participating in this study, she must agree to inform her treating physician immediately. 8. Patients ≤ 65 years of age, or patients 18-64 years of age who have declined fludarabine-based regimens, are eligible. 9. Patient must be accessible for treatment and follow-up. 10. Patients must be able to understand the nature of this study, give written informed consent prior to study entry, and comply with study requirements. Exclusion Criteria: 1. Previous therapy for CLL/SLL. (Patients who have received steroids or IVIG for autoimmune complications of CLL are eligible). 2. Current active hepatic or biliary disease (with the exception of patients with Gilbert's syndrome, asymptomatic gallstones, liver metastases, or stable chronic liver disease, per assessment by the treating physician). 3. Active bacterial or viral infection, or infection requiring intravenous antibiotic treatment at the time of accrual. 4. Central nervous system lymphoma/CLL. 5. Transformation of CLL to aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) (i.e., Richters transformation). 6. History of other malignancy within 2 years of study entry which could affect compliance with the protocol or interpretation of results. Patients with a history of curatively treated basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or in situ carcinoma of the cervix, low grade, early-stage, localized prostate cancer treated surgically with curative intent, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast treated with curative intent, are generally eligible. These cases should be discussed with the study chair or study co-chair prior to enrollment. 7. Patients who are HepB sAg positive and/or HepB cAb positive. 8. Concurrent severe, intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements. 9. Any condition that would prevent patient comprehension of the nature of, and risk associated with, the study. 10. A serious underlying medical condition that would impair the ability of the patient to receive protocol treatment. 11. A major surgical procedure, open biopsy, or significant traumatic injury ≤28 days of beginning treatment, or anticipation of the need for major surgery during the course of the study. 12. Treatment with any known non-marketed drug substance or experimental therapy within 5 terminal half lives or 4 weeks prior to visit 1, whichever is longer. Patients may not receive any other investigational or anti-cancer treatments while participating in this study.
