Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase Ib- Incidence of dose limiting toxicities (DLT) during the first cycle [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of the AEB071and EVEROLIMUS combination therapy in patients with DLBCL.

  • Phase II- Overall response rate (ORR) = complete response (CR) + partial response (PR) according to the non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma International Working Group criteria [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assess the preliminary evidence for anti-tumor activity at RP2D for AEB071 and EVEROLIMUS in patients with a CD79 mutation and those wild-type for the mutation but of the ABC subtype

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) assessments of clinical laboratory values and vital sign measurements. [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety and tolerability of AEB071 and EVEROLIMUS, including acute and chronic toxicities

  • Best Overall Response (BOR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate preliminary anti-tumor activity for AE071 and EVEROLIMUS

  • Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate preliminary anti-tumor activity for AE071 and EVEROLIMUS

  • Progression Free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate preliminary anti-tumor activity for AE071 and EVEROLIMUS

  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate preliminary anti-tumor activity for AE071 and EVEROLIMUS

  • Concentration-time profiles of Pharmacokinetics (PK) parameters - Phase Ib [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To characterize the PK profiles of AEB071 and EVEROLIMUS

Estimated Enrollment: 70

Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: AEB071 and EVEROLIMUS
AEB071 and EVEROLIMUS will be taken together in this open-label non-randomized study
Drug: AEB071
a Protein Kinase C Inhibitor
Other Name: sotrastuarin
Drug: Everolimus
mTOR inhibitor
Other Name: RAD001

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase Ib dose escalation and Phase II study in patients with DLBCL harboring mutations in CD79A/B or of the ABC subtype. Pre-screening for mutations in CD79A/B or the ABC subtype will be required, as it is anticipated that both patient groups may receive clinical benefit from the combination of AEB071 and EVEROLIMUS.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female ≥18 years of age.
  • Diffuse DLBCL with activating mutations in CD79 (A or B subunits) or ABC-subtype DLBCL (CD79 wildtype or CD79 mutant). DLBCL that arose from transformed indolent lymphoma is allowed.
  • Prior treatment and relapse following chemotherapy and autologous bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Patients who are not transplant eligible or who did not respond to chemotherapy may be considered for the study following a single regimen of chemotherapy such as R-CHOP or R-EPOCH. There is no limit to number of prior therapies allowed.
  • May be treated with localized radiation as long as measurable or evaluable disease remains at untreated sites.
  • WHO performance status of ≤ 2.
  • A representative FFPE tumor sample must be available for molecular testing along with a corresponding pathology report. An archival tumor sample may be submitted. However, if not available, a new tumor biopsy obtained for the purpose of this study must be submitted instead.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Treatment with strong inducers or inhibitors (medications and herbal supplements) of cytochrome P450 3A4/5 (CYP3A4/5), or CYP3A4/5 substrates with a QT prolongation risk that cannot be discontinued at least 7 half-lives (or if the half-life is unknown,14 days) prior to study drug treatment.
  • Impaired cardiac function or clinically significant cardiac diseases.
  • Impairment of GI function or GI disease that could interfere with the absorption of AEB071 or everolimus.
  • Severe systemic infections, current or within the two weeks prior to initiation of AEB071.
  • Kown history of HIV.
  • Poorly controlled diabetes as defined by a fasting serum glucose > 2.0 x ULN.
  • Evidence of current CNS involvement.
  • Significant symptomatic deterioration of lung function.
