Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of alisertib and romidepsin in treating patients with B-cell or T-cell lymphomas that have returned after a period of improvement (relapsed) or have not responded to treatment (refractory). Alisertib and romidepsin may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the safety profile of alisertib (MLN8237) plus romidepsin. II. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), if reached, of MLN8237 administered in combination with romidepsin.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate objective response rate (ORR) and complete response (CR) of the combined regimen.

II. To assess whether higher levels of expression of aurora kinase A correlate with outcomes.

III. To determine if this combination results in downregulation of targets of v-myc myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog (avian) (C-Myc) in C-Myc positive patients, induces mitotic catastrophe, changes immune system or other host responses, or upregulates markers for apoptosis.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive alisertib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-7 (dose levels 1-4) or days 1-3, 8-10, and 15-17 (dose levels 5-8). Patients also receive romidepsin intravenously (IV) over 4 hours on days 1 and 8 (dose levels 1-4) or 2, 9, and 16 (dose levels 5-8). Treatment repeats every 21 days (dose levels 1-4) or 28 days (dose levels 5-8) for up to 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 4 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events as graded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0 (utilized for adverse event reporting beginning April 1, 2018) [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks post-treatment ]
  2. Maximum tolerated dose graded according to NCI CTCAE version 5.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ]
    Maximum tolerated dose is defined as the highest dose level at which 6 patients have been treated with fewer than 2 instances of dose-limiting toxicities.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks post-treatment ]
    Point estimates along with 95% confidence intervals will be provided.

  2. Complete response [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks post-treatment ]
    Point estimates along with 95% confidence intervals will be provided.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Aurora A kinase expression intensity, assessed by immunohistochemistry [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Will be correlated with response.

  2. Change in gene expression profiles [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to 28 days (course 1) ]
    Will be correlated with response.
