Last verified: May 2007
The purpose of this study is to assess the tolerability, pharmacokinetics and antitumor effect of bendamustine hydrochloride (SyB L-0501) in patients with indolent B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Drug: bendamustine hydrochloride
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Open Study to Assess the Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Antitumor Effect of Bendamustine Hydrochloride (SyB L-0501: 90 or 120 mg/m2/Day) Administered Intravenously for Two Days in Patients With Indolent Lymphoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hematological toxicity; > grade four (CTCAE v.3.0), during the treatment cycle (twenty one days)
  • Non-Hematological toxicity; > grade three(CTCAE v.3.0), during the treatment cycle (twenty one days)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • All adverse events or adverse reactions, during the treatment cycle (twenty one days)
  • Pharmacokinetics profile

Estimated Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: October 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2007
Detailed Description:
Indolent B-cell Non-hodgkin's lymphoma is treated mainly with radiation and chemotherapy using a combination of chemotherapies, such as purine-analogues and CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone). After the approval of an antibody therapy agent Rituximab®, it alone or combination with CHOP has been introduced. Bendamustine hydrochloride has a unique structure compared with the marketed agents, and has an innovative mechanism of action. Thus, it is expected that Bendamustine hydrochloride will provide new alternatives for patients with indolent B-cell Non-hodgkin's lymphoma.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)

  • Patients who had not received treatment (chemotherapy, antibody therapy and radiation/ radiotherapy) for more than 4 weeks following prior therapy and who are judged to carry no effect from the prior therapy.
  • Patients aged from 20 to less than 75 years.
  • Patients who had agreed in-patient during first course therapy.
  • Patients from whom written consent to participate in this study has been obtained.

Exclusion Criteria:Patients who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded.

  • Patients with apparent infections.
  • Patients with serious complications (hepatic failure or renal failure).
