Primary Objective:

  • To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of Dasatinib in relapsed or refractory non-hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients and to determine the safety of Dasatinib in NHL.

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess the complete and overall response rates for all Phase I and Phase II patients and to determine overall survival and event free survival for all Phase I and Phase II patients.
  • To assay the levels of kinase activity in NHL specimens and correlate this activity to patient outcomes.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Dose Cohort # 1 Drug: Dasatinib

Dasatinib will be orally administered once daily for 28 day cycles.

There will be three dose cohorts for the Dasatinib in the Phase I portion of this trial. A minimum of three patients will be enrolled into each of the following dose cohorts:

Dose cohort # 1 will be 100 mg per day

The MTD will be determined in the Phase I portion of this trial. An additional 29 patients using the Two-Stage Simon design will be enrolled into Phase II using the MTD determined in Phase I.

Other Name: Spryocel
Active Comparator: Dose Cohort # 2 Drug: Dasatinib
Dose cohort # 2 will be 150 mg per day
Active Comparator: Dose Cohort # 3 Drug: Dasatinib
Dose cohort # 3 will be 200 mg per day

Detailed Description:


  • To determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Dasatinib in relapsed or refractory Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients and to determine the safety of Dasatinib in NHL

Secondary Objective:

  • To assess the complete and overall response rates for all Phase I and Phase II patients and to assay the levels of kinase activity in NHL specimens and correlate this activity to patient outcomes.
  • To determine overall survival and event free survival for all Phase I and Phase II patients.

Treatment Plan

This study has two phases of treatment, Phase I and Phase II. The Phase I portion of the trial will consist of a dose escalation plan with 3-6 patients being enrolled into each dose cohort. The doses of Dasatinib used in Phase I are 100 mg, 150 mg, and 200 mg. The dose that is found to be tolerated the best and also has the best treatment results will be used for Phase II. An additional 29 patients will be enrolled into Phase II.

All patients will receive Dasatinib in this study. Dasatinib will be administered orally (by mouth) once daily for 28 day cycles. A cycle will be considered 28 days. Dosing will be continuous with no interruptions, unless instructed to interrupt treatment by the treating physician.

The patient will be restaged after every 2 cycles of therapy, every even cycle. Therapy may continue as long as there are no clinical signs of NHL progressing and the patient is tolerating the treatment with no side effects related to the therapy. If the patient is removed from study for any reason, he/she will be followed for survival until death.

  • Performance status (ECOG) 0-2
  • Patients must have relapsed or refractory disease after at least one prior systemic therapy, with at least a 3 week interval from the completion of the most recent chemotherapy or radiotherapy regimen. Recover to ≤ grade 1 from all toxicities related to the prior treatments is required.
  • Patients must be ineligible or relapsed after an autologous or allogeneic stem cell transplant if clinically appropriate.
  • Adequate Laboratory Parameters:

    • ANC ≥ 1000/μL
    • Platelet count ≥ 50,000/μL

    • Hepatic enzymes (AST, ALT ) ≤ 2.5 times the institutional ULN
    • Serum creatinine < 2.0 times the institutional ULN
    • PTT within institutional normal limits
  • Ability to take oral medication (dasatinib must be swallowed whole)
  • Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (sensitivity < or = 25IU HCG/L) within 72 hours prior to the start of study drug administration
  • Persons of reproductive potential must agree to use an adequate method of contraception throughout treatment and for at least 6 months after study drug is stopped
  • Signed written informed consent including HIPAA according to institutional guidelines

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No malignancy [other than the one treated in this study] which required systemic treatment within the past 3 years.
  • Concurrent medical condition which may increase the risk of toxicity, including:

    • Clinically significant pleural or pericardial effusion
    • Clinically-significant coagulation or platelet function disorder (e.g. known von Willebrand's disease)
  • Cardiac Symptoms, consider the following:

    • Uncontrolled angina, congestive heart failure or MI within (6 months)
    • Diagnosed congenital long QT syndrome
    • Any history of clinically significant ventricular arrhythmias (such as ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, or Torsades de pointes)

    • Subjects with hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia if it cannot be corrected
  • History of significant bleeding disorder unrelated to cancer, including:

    • Diagnosed congenital bleeding disorders (e.g., von Willebrand's disease)
    • Diagnosed acquired bleeding disorder within one year (e.g., acquired anti-factor VIII antibodies)
    • Ongoing or recent (< or = 3 months) significant gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Concomitant Medications, consider the following prohibitions:
