Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study for the treatment of Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma

Brief description of study

Primary objective of the study is to compare the efficacy of romidepsin when administered with CHOP versus CHOP alone in subjects with previously untreated peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) in terms of progression-free survival (PFS) assessed according to Response criteria for malignant lymphoma 1999 by a Response Adjudication Committee (RAC).

Detailed Study Description

This is a randomized multi-center phase III study, to compare efficacy and safety of Ro-CHOP with standard CHOP regimen in patients with previously untreated, histologically proven PTCL. Given the nature of the experimental agent, this study is an open-label study. Patients are randomized 1:1 to receive either (Arm A) cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (CHOP) administered in 3 week cycles for 6 cycles [22] or (Arm B) romidepsin CHOP (Ro-CHOP) administered in 3 week cycles for 6 cycles. In the Ro-CHOP arm, romidepsin will be administered at a dose of 12 mg/m IV on day 1 and day 8 every 3 weeks. In this study, patients will advance through three phases of the study: screening phase, treatment phase and follow-up phase. Patients will receive study drug(s) for up to 6 cycles, or until unacceptable toxicity will develop or progression or voluntary withdrawal. Patients will be followed for survival until the earliest of either 80% of patients have died or 3 years from the last patient randomized. Three years after the primary analysis an update of the database will be done and a rerun of the analysis will be performed.
