Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess safety and efficacy of brentuximab vedotin in combination with bendamustine in patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin lymphoma. It is an open-label, 2-stage study designed to determine the recommended dose level of bendamustine in combination with brentuximab vedotin. The study will assess the safety profile of the combination treatment and determine what proportion of patients achieve a complete remission.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hodgkin Disease Drug: brentuximab vedotin Drug: bendamustine Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 55 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1/2 Single-arm, Open-label Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Brentuximab Vedotin in Combination With Bendamustine in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL)
Study Start Date : June 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : February 20, 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Brentuximab Vedotin + Bendamustine
Brentuximab vedotin 1.8 mg/kg every 3 weeks for up to 16 cycles by IV infusion and bendamustine 90 mg/m2 on Days 1 and 2 every 3 weeks by IV infusion for up to 6 cycles
Drug: brentuximab vedotin
1.8 mg/kg every 3 weeks by intravenous (IV) infusion
Other Name: Adcetris; SGN-35

Drug: bendamustine
90 mg/m2 on Days 1 and 2 of 3-week cycles

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Remission Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 4.6 months ]
    Complete remission rate among all subjects (Phase 1 and 2 combined) treated at the dose level selected for Phase 2. Complete remission (CR) per Cheson 2007 Revised Response Criteria for Malignant Lymphoma is a disappearance of all evidence of disease.

  2. Incidence of Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 13.8 months ]
    All AEs reported after initiation of treatment and pre-existing conditions that worsen after initiation of treatment will be considered treatment-emergent AEs (TEAEs). All AEs will be coded by system organ class, MedDRA preferred term, and severity grade using NCI CTCAE V4.03. All recorded AEs will be included in the data listings.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Dose-limiting Toxicities [ Time Frame: Up to 3 weeks; first cycle of therapy through the first day of Cycle 2 ]
    Incidence of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) was evaluated in an initial safety cohort of 10 patients who were followed for protocol-defined DLT events until Cycle 2 Day 1.

  2. Overall Best Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 4.6 months ]
    Percentage of participants who achieved a best response of complete remission (CR, disappearance of all evidence of disease), partial remission (PR, regression of greater than or equal to 50% of measurable disease and no new sites), stable disease (SD, failure to obtain a complete or partial response or progressive disease), or progressive disease (PD, any new lesion or increase by 50% or more of previously involved sites from nadir) per Cheson 2007 Revised Response Criteria for Malignant Lymphoma

  3. Duration of Response [ Time Frame: Up to 47.8 months ]
    The time from first observation of remission to disease progression/relapse or death from any cause, whichever occurs first.

  4. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 49 months ]
    The time from first dose of study medication to first documentation of disease progression/relapse, or to death due to any cause, whichever occurs first.
