Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the optimal dose of subcutaneous CAMPATH when used in combination with rituximab for patients with relapsing or refractory, low-grade or follicular, CD-20-positive, B-Cell non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Safety will be the primary objective of phase I, while the primary objective of phase II will be to determine overall response.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Drug: CAMPATH (alemtuzumab) Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study is being conducted in 2 parts. Phase I will involve dose escalation of subcutaneous CAMPATH (SQ) given 3 times per week in combination with weekly doses of rituximab (375mg/m2) for a maximum of 8 weeks in order to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). In Phase II patients will be treated with SQ CAMPATH at the MTD plus weekly rituximab (375mg/m2)for a maximum of 8 weeks with primary objective of defining Overall Response (OR) to this combination.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 49 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • For the Phase I portion of the study, patients must have pathologically confirmed diagnosis of low-grade or follicular, CD20-positive, B-cell, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that has relapsed or is refractory. For the Phase II portion of the study, patients must have a pathologically confirmed diagnosis of low-grade or follicular, CD20-positive, B-cell, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (Follicular, predominantly small cleaved or follicular, mixed small cleaved and large cell, International Working Formulation classification B or C or REAL classification follicular center grade 1,2) that has relapsed or is refractory.
  • Previously treated with at least one anti-cancer regimen for NHL
  • Measurable disease (lesions that can be accurately measured in 2 dimensions by CT scan with a greatest transverse diameter of >/= to 2cm or palpable lesions with both diameters of 2cm or more)
  • Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks
  • WHO performance status or 0 or 1
  • Adequate marrow and organ function (as defined in the protocol)
  • Completed major surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy or biotherapy/targeted therapies at least 4 weeks prior to study entry (6 weeks if treated with a nitrosourea or mitomycin). Patients must have recovered from all prior treatment toxicity to Grade 1 or less, exclusive of alopecia.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior combination therapy with rituximab and CAMPATH; prior therapy with either agent alone is permitted
  • A history of a T-cell lymphoma
  • Known AIDS-related HIV-positive lymphoma
  • For the Phase II portion of the study (once MTD has been determined), bulky disease, ie, any single mass >10cm or circulating malignant cells of 25,000/uL or more
  • Prior autologous bone marrow or stem cell transplant within 6 months of study entry
  • Prior allogeneic bone marrow transplant or organ transplant
  • Prior radiotherapy to the only site of measurable disease
  • Medical condition requiring chronic use of oral, high-dose corticosteroids
  • Use of investigational agents within 30 days of study enrollment
  • Past history of anaphylaxis following exposure to humanized monoclonal antibodies
  • Known, active, infection, including HIV positive
  • Diagnosis of another malignancy within the previous five (5) years, unless the probability of recurrence of the prior malignancy is < 5%. Patients with curatively treated early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, basal cell carcinoma of the skin, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and patients with a history of malignant tumor in the past that have been disease-free for at least 5 years
  • Active central nervous system (CNS) involvement with lymphoma
  • Pregnant or nursing women
  • Any significant concurrent disease or illness that would, in the opinion of the investigator, compromise patient safety or compliance, or interfere with the interpretation of study results
  • Active hepatitis or a history of prior viral hepatitis B or C, or positive hepatitis B serologies without prior immunization
