Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-label,Multi-center, Phase l/ll Study of Anti-CD40 Monoclonal Antibody (HCD122) Administered Intravenously to Subjects With Advanced Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia That is Refractory or Relapsed After at Least One Previous Fludarabine-containing Chemotherapy Regimen

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: between study Day 1 and study Day 50 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • to characterize safety and tolerability of HCD122 at each dose level in dose escalation patients [ Time Frame: between study Day 1 and study termination ]
  • To characterize pharmacokinetics of HCD122 at each dose level in dose escalation patients [ Time Frame: between study Day 1 and study termination ]
  • To characterize peripheral blood CD40 occupancy on CD5/CD19 (CLL) cells and CD5/CD19 cell depletion activity (pharmacodynamics) of HCD122 at each dose level in dose escalation patients [ Time Frame: between study Day 1 and study termination ]
  • To assess preliminary anti-tumor activity of HCD122 in dose escalation patients [ Time Frame: between study Day 1 and study termination ]
