Safety and Efficacy Study of Loncastuximab Tesirine + Ibrutinib in Diffuse Large B-Cell or Mantle Cell Lymphoma

Trial Status: Active

The purpose of this Phase 1 / 2 study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Loncastuximab Tesirine (ADCT-402) in combination with Ibrutinib in participants with Advanced Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma or Mantle Cell Lymphoma.

  • Negative beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-HCG) pregnancy test within 7 days prior to start of study drugs on C1D1 for women of childbearing potential
  • Women of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception from the time of giving informed consent until at least 16 weeks after the last dose of study therapy. Men with female partners who are of childbearing potential must agree that they will use a highly effective method of contraception from the time of giving informed consent until at least 20 weeks after the participant receives his last dose of study therapy

Exclusion Criteria

  • Known history of hypersensitivity to or positive serum human anti-drug antibody (ADA) to a CD19 antibody
  • Known history of hypersensitivity to ibrutinib
  • Previous therapy with ibrutinib or other BTK inhibitors
  • Previous therapy with loncastuximab tesirine
  • Requires treatment or prophylaxis with a moderate or strong cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A inhibitor
  • Allogenic or autologous transplant within 60 days prior to start of study drugs (C1D1)
  • Active graft-versus-host disease
  • Post-transplantation lymphoproliferative disorder
  • Active autoimmune disease, including motor neuropathy considered of autoimmune origin and other central nervous system (CNS) autoimmune disease
  • Known seropositive and requiring anti-viral therapy for human immunodeficiency (HIV) virus, hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV).
  • History of Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis
  • Lymphoma with active CNS involvement at the time of screening, including leptomeningeal disease
  • Clinically significant third space fluid accumulation (i.e., ascites requiring drainage or pleural effusion that is either requiring drainage or associated with shortness of breath)
  • Breastfeeding or pregnant
  • Significant medical comorbidities, including but not limited to, uncontrolled hypertension (blood pressure [BP] ≥160/100 millimeters of mercury (mmHg) repeatedly), unstable angina, congestive heart failure (greater than New York Heart Association class II), electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia, coronary angioplasty or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to screening, uncontrolled atrial or ventricular cardiac arrhythmia, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, or severe chronic pulmonary disease, or tuberculosis infection (tuberculosis screening based on local standards).
  • Major surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or other anti-neoplastic therapy within 14 days prior to start of study drugs (C1D1), except shorter if approved by the Sponsor
  • Use of any other experimental medication within 14 days prior to start of study drugs (C1D1)
  • Planned live vaccine administration after starting study drugs (C1D1)
  • Any condition that could interfere with the absorption or metabolism of ibrutinib including malabsorption syndrome, disease significantly affecting gastrointestinal function, or resection of the stomach or small bowel
  • Inherited or acquired bleeding disorders
  • Ongoing anticoagulation treatment, except for low-dose heparinisation or equivalent
  • Failure to recover to Grade ≤1 (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] version 4.0) from acute non-hematologic toxicity (Grade ≤2 neuropathy or alopecia) due to previous therapy prior to screening
  • Congenital long QT syndrome or a corrected QTcF interval of >480 ms at screening (unless secondary to pacemaker or bundle branch block)
  • Active second primary malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancers, non metastatic prostate cancer, in situ cervical cancer, ductal or lobular carcinoma in situ of the breast, or other malignancy that the Sponsor's medical monitor and Investigator agree, and document should not be exclusionary
  • Any other significant medical illness, abnormality, or condition that would, in the Investigator's judgement, make the participant inappropriate for study participation or put the participant at risk

The Phase 1 portion of the study will cover the dose escalation portion of the study. This will then be followed by the Phase 2 portion of the study, which will treat participants with the dose of loncastuximab tesirine determined in the Phase 1 portion of the study. The ibrutinib dose of 560 mg daily, will remain the same throughout both phases of the study. A standard 3+3 dose escalation design will be used for the Phase 1 portion of the study. The dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) period will be the 21 days following the first dose of ibrutinib. The dose escalation cohort will receive loncastuximab tesirine for 2 cycles with concurrent ibrutinib (concomitant therapy) and may then continue ibrutinib therapy up to one year. The Phase 2 portion of the study will involve 3 cohorts: - Non-germinal center B-cell diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (Non-GCB DLBCL) cohort - Germinal center B-cell diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (GCB DLBCL) cohort - Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cohort Each of the cohorts will be treated with the recommended dose of loncastuximab tesirine determined in the Phase 1 portion of the study. The study will include a Screening Period (of up to 28 days), a Treatment Period (cycles of 3 to 4 weeks), and a Follow-up Period (approximately every 12 week visits for up to 2 years after treatment discontinuation).
