NCT01191190

  Purpose
Patients who have relapsed/refractory CLL and require therapy as per iwCLL guidelines will be eligible. Subjects will receive a treatment with ofatumumab and HDMP for three consecutive 4 week cycles. The primary endpoint is to determine the complete response (CR) to therapy and the secondary endpoints will assess the safety and tolerability of the regimen, the impact of the treatment on progression free, treatment free, overall survival, and pharmacokinetics of ofatumumab. Patients will receive allopurinol for tumor-lysis prophylaxis and antimicrobial prophylaxis.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • IwCLL-WG Defined Complete Response (CR) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]

    Responses were assessed two months after completion of therapy.

    Criteria for complete remission is assessed with: a bone marrow biopsy and repeat CT scan (abdominal, chest and pelvis if initial was abnormal) to confirm iwCLL-WG defined CR.

    iwCLL-WG Complete Response is defined as:

    • Peripheral blood lymphocytes (evaluated by blood and differential count) below 4 x 109/L (4000/L).
    • Absence of lymphadenopathy (>1.5 cm)of physical exam; AND
    • No hepatomegaly and splenomegaly on physical exam; AND
    • Absence of constitutional symptoms; AND
    • Normal complete blood count as exhibited by neutrophils ≥ 1,500/μl, platelets > 100,000/μl, hemoglobin > 11.0g/dL (non-transfused), and lymphocyte count < 5,000/μl; AND
    • Bone marrow aspirate and biopsy must be normocellular for age with <30% of nucleated cells being lymphocytes. Lymphoid nodules must be absent


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • IwCLL-WG Defined Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Responses were assessed two months after completion of therapy. Overall Response Rate (ORR) = CR + PR

  • IwCLL-WG Defined Nodular Partial Response (PR) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]

    Responses were assessed two months after completion of therapy.

    Partial Response is defined as:

    • Greater than or equal to 50% decrease in blood absolute lymphocyte count from pre-treatment value; AND
    • Greater than or equal to 50% reduction in lymphadenopathy from pre-treatment value; AND
    • Greater than or equal to 50% reduction in splenomegaly/hepatomegaly from pre-treatment value.

    In addition, patients need to have at least ONE of the following:

    • Neutrophils ≥ 1,500/μl or ≥ 50% improvement from pre-treatment value; AND / OR
    • Platelets > 100,000/μl or 50% improvement from pre-treatment value; AND / OR
    • Hemoglobin > 11.0 gm/dl (non-transfused) or 50% improvement from pre-treatment value.

  • IwCLL-WG Defined Partial Response (PR) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]
    Responses were assessed two months after completion of therapy

  • IwCLL-WG Defined Stable Disease (SD) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]

    Responses were assessed two months after completion of therapy.

    Subjects who do not fulfill the criteria for complete or partial response as defined above but do not exhibit progressive disease will be considered as having stable disease.


  • IwCLL-WG Defined Progressive Disease (PD) [ Time Frame: 2 months ]

    Responses were assessed two months after completion of therapy

    Progressive Disease is defined as:

    • Greater than or equal to 50% increase in the products of at least two lymph nodes on two consecutive determinations two weeks apart (at least one lymph node must be ≥ 2 cm; or the appearance of a new palpable lymph node; OR
    • Greater than or equal to 50% increase in the size of the liver and/or spleen as determined by measurement below the respective costal margins; or appearance of palpable hepatomegaly or splenomegaly, which was not previously present; OR
    • Greater than or equal to 50% increase in the absolute number of circulating lymphocytes to at least 5,000μl; OR
    • Transformation to a more aggressive histology (i.e., Richter's syndrome or prolymphocytic leukemia with ≥ 56% prolymphocytes);

  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Treatment-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Safety and Tolerability Measured Via Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Please see Adverse Event module for additional details.

  • Detectable Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The patient who achieved a CR did not have detectable MRD in the bone marrow by four-color flow cytometry (<0.1% of cells).

Detailed Description:
Patients who have relapsed/refractory CLL and require therapy as per iwCLL guidelines will be eligible. Subjects will receive a treatment with ofatumumab and HDMP for three consecutive 4 week cycles. The primary endpoint is to determine the complete response (CR) to therapy and the secondary endpoints will assess the safety and tolerability of the regimen, the impact of the treatment on progression free, treatment free, overall survival, and pharmacokinetics of ofatumumab. Cycles 1-3 will be administered without scheduled interruption every 28 days for a total of 12 weeks of therapy. Patients will receive allopurinol for tumor-lysis prophylaxis and antimicrobial prophylaxis. Blood glucose levels will be monitored immediately after HDMP infusion by finger stick glucometry. Two months following completion of treatment a response assessment will occur per iwCLL guidelines. The treatment will be administered as outpatient, and each cycle will be four weeks in duration.
