SDX-105 in Combination With Rituxan for Patients With Relapsed Indolent or Mantle Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00076349

Brief Summary:


This is an open label study combining Rituxan and SDX-105. Rituxan will be given on day 1 followed by a 30-60 minute intravenous infusion of SDX-105 on day 2 and day 3. Treatment will repeat every 21 days (a cycle). Treatment can continue for up to 6 cycles (about 4 months) if tumor status improves and there are no unacceptable side effects. Patients will be followed for up to 2 years or until disease progression.


Rituxan has been shown to increase the sensitivity of cells to chemotherapy. The combination of SDX-105 and Rituxan has been effective in both the laboratory and in a recent clinical study with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients.


This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of SDX-105 plus Rituxan in patients with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have relapsed after taking Rituxan.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
open-label, single arm, clinical trial of bendamustine (SDX-105) plus rituximab
Drug: bendamustine and rituximab
Patients will receive rituximab on the first day of a cycle at a dose of 375 mg/m2, followed on the second and third day of a cycle by SDX-105 (bendamustine) at a dose of 90 mg/m2/day of treatment. Four cycles are planned. Patients will receive a dose of rituximab alone 7 days prior to the first cycle of the combination and a dose of rituximab 28 days after the last cycle of the combination. If there is documented disease regression, a fifth and sixth cycle of SDX-105 plus rituximab may be administered.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the objective response rate (ORR = CR + PR) to a regimen of SDX-105 plus rituximab in patients with relapsed indolent or mantle cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma [ Time Frame: 4-6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. • To characterize the safety profile of SDX-105 plus rituximab in this patient population • To determine the one-year and Kaplan-Meier estimates of progression-free survival (PFS) rates • To determine the median duration of response (DR) [ Time Frame: 4-6 months ]
