A Study of the HSP90 Inhibitor AUY922

This study has been terminated.
(Study halted early due to limited response.)

M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Identifier:
First received: November 29, 2011
Last updated: November 28, 2016
Last verified: December 2015

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if AUY922 can help to control refractory or recurrent lymphoma. The safety of AUY922 will also be studied.

AUY922 is designed to block tumor growth by blocking a protein.

Further study details as provided by M.D. Anderson Cancer Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response in Participants With Relapsed or Refractory Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) and Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma (PTCL) [ Time Frame: 56 days ]
    Objective Response defined as Complete (CR) and Partial (PR) Response. Computed tomography (CT) and Positron emission tomography (PET) scans done after every 2 cycles to assess efficacy using Cheson Criteria (2007) which lists CR as disappearance of all evidence of disease, and PR as regression of measurable disease and no new sites.

  • Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 cycles or 48 weeks ]
    Percentage of participants with objective response defined as Complete (CR) and Partial (PR) Response. Computed tomography (CT) and Positron emission tomography (PET) scans done after every 2 cycles to assess efficacy using Cheson Criteria (2007) which lists CR as disappearance of all evidence of disease, and PR as regression of measurable disease and no new sites.
