This is a prospective single arm, multi-center, phase II clinical trial to observe the efficacy and safety of zanubrutinib combined with standard chemotherapy in the treatment for patients with diffuse large B cell lymphoma and CD79A/CD79B genetic abnormality.


Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Currently, R-CHOP is world-widely used in the first-line treatment for DLBCL. There are about one second of patients suffering relapse and drug resistance. ABC-DLBCL mainly relies on the chronical activity of BCR signal, which can activate the downstream NF-kB pathway through BTK and MYD88, thereby promoting the occurrence of tumors. A study by Wyndham H Wilson et al. showed that 23% of ABC-DLBCL patients were accompanied by acquired functional mutations of the BCR component CD79A/CD79B. Zanubrutinib is a new BTK inhibitor. The goal of our trial is to assess the efficacy and safety of zanubrutinib combined with standard chemotherapy in the treatment for patients with diffuse large B cell lymphoma and CD79A/CD79B genetic abnormality.
