Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    ORR=CR (Complete Remission) + PR(Partial Remission)

    Antitumor activity of MOR00208

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1. Patients response duration evaluation by hematology, bone marrow aspirated or biopsy, CT [ Time Frame: bi monthly, up to 48 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • 2. Safety will be evaluated by assessing adverse events, clinical lab data and vital signs, ECG, physical exam [ Time Frame: weekly, up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • 3. Pharmacokinetics of MOR00208 (Pharmacokinetic assessment comprises: Cmax, tmax, t1/2, CL [ Time Frame: weekly, up to 12 weeks; 0, 1, 4, 24 hours post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • 4. Number of patients who develop anti-MOR00208 antibodies as a measure of immunogenicity [ Time Frame: monthly up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 120

    1. FL
    2. MCL
    3. DLBCL
    4. Other indolent NHL (eg, MZL/MALT)
  3. Patients' NHL must have progressed after at least 1 prior rituximab containing regimen.
  4. one site of measurable disease by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan defined as at least one lesion that measures at least 1.5 × 1.5 cm,

  6. discontinued previous monoclonal antibody therapy (except rituximab) or radioimmunotherapy administration for at least 60 days before study drug administration.
  7. off rituximab for at least 14 days before the screening visit and be confirmed to have either no response or have disease progression after rituximab treatment.
  8. Patients with DLBCL had a positive [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scan at baseline (Cheson response criteria)
  9. Life expectancy of > 3 months.
  10. ECOG performance status of < 3.
  11. laboratory criteria at screening:

    1. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.0 (1000/mm3)
    2. Platelet count ≥ 75 × 109/L without previous transfusion within 10 days of first study drug administration
    3. Haemoglobin ≥ 8.0 g/dL (may have been transfused)
    4. Serum creatinine < 2.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
    5. Total bilirubin ≤ 2.0 × ULN
    6. Alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 2.5 × ULN.
  12. If a female of childbearing potential, a negative pregnancy test must be confirmed before enrolment and use of double-barrier contraception, oral contraceptive plus barrier contraceptive, or confirmation of having undergone clinically documented total hysterectomy and/or oophorectomy, tubal ligation.
  13. If a male, an effective barrier method of contraception must be used during the study and for 3 months after the last dose if the patient is sexually active with a female of childbearing potential.
  14. able to comply with all study-related procedures, medication use, and evaluations.
  15. able understand and give written informed consent and comply with the study protocol.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Previous treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy or other lymphoma specific therapy within 14 days before the screening visit or patient has not recovered from side effects of previous lymphoma-specific therapy.
  2. Treatment with a systemic investigational agent within 28 days before the screening visit.
  3. Previous treatment with an anti-CD19 antibody or fragments
  4. Previous allogenic stem cell transplantation.
  5. Known or suspected hypersensitivity to the excipients contained in the study drug formulation.
