  Purpose

SUMMARY: This is a multi-center open label study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Treanda™ (also known as bendamustine HCl or SDX-105) in patients who have indolent Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and have relapsed within a defined timeframe after taking rituximab (Rituxan®). Treanda will be given via 60-minute intravenous infusion on days 1 and 2 of every 21-day treatment cycle. Patients will be treated for 6 cycles unless they develop progressive disease or unacceptable toxicity. Those who continue to receive clinical benefit at end of 6 cycles may receive an additional 2 cycles. Following the end of treatment, patients will be followed for up to 2 years until disease progression or start of another anti-cancer therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the overall response rate (ORR = CR + CRu + PR) and duration of response (DR) to a regimen of bendamustine in patients who are refractory to rituximab therapy. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • • assess the safety profile of Treanda in this patient population. • assess the duration of progression-free survival (PFS). • estimate the basic pharmacokinetic parameters • assess the effects of plasma concentrations [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 103

Primary Completion Date: July 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
bendamustine
Drug: Bendamustine HCl
Dose of 120 mg/m2 on Day 1 and Day 2 of each treatment cycle (every 21 days). Patients who are continuing to experience clinical benefit at Cycle 6, as assessed by the investigator, may receive up to 2 additional cycles, to a maximum of 8 cycles.
