  • Copanlisib and Combination Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma or Relapsed Grade 3b Follicular Lymphoma

    This phase I trial studies the best dose of copanlisib when given together with combination chemotherapy (R-GCD) in treating patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory) or grade 3b follicular lymphoma that has come back (relapsed) after 1 prior line of therapy. Copanlisib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, carboplatin, and dexamethasone, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving copanlisib together with R-GCD as second line therapy may improve the complete response rate for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or follicular lymphoma.

    Location: University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

  • Olaparib and High-Dose Chemotherapy in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Lymphomas Undergoing Stem Cell Transplant

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of olaparib when given together with high-dose chemotherapy in treating patients with lymphomas that have come back (relapsed) or does not treatment (refractory) and are undergoing stem cell transplant. PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as olaparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vorinostat, gemcitabine, busulfan, and melphalan, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving olaparib and high-dose chemotherapy together may work better in treating patients with relapsed / refractory lymphomas undergoing stem cell transplant than with chemotherapy alone.
