There are three planned analyses:
- An exploratory analysis (proof of principle) on the first 10 enrolled patients. In the case the experimental treatment will be safe and some tumor responses will be recorded, the chairman, after due multidisciplinary discussion, could propose to proceed with an open, non-comparative phase II trial, with overall response rate (complete and partial responses) as primary endpoint. The maximum overall response rate considered of low interest will be 30%, and the minimum response rate considered of interest will be 50%; to demonstrate that difference, a total of 28 patients will be needed (one-sided test; trype I error .10; power .9). Importantly, BBB permeabilization will be investigated using different methods. Variations in tumor microvasculature and vessel permeability will be assessed by DCE- and DSC-MRI. Permeability will be assessed in contrast-enhanced lesions, perilesional areas and normal appearing brain; results will expressed as KTRANS values normalized using contralateral normal appearing white matter, and compared by Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test. Concentrations of R-CHOP drugs were assessed on matched CSF and serum/plasma samples.Moreover, BBB permeability will be also assessed by 99mTc-diethylene-triamine-pentacetic acid (99mTc-DTPA) brain scintigraphy.
- First of the two stages of Simon Minimax design, where 12 patients will be entered (including the 10 patients of the exploratory phase) and, if at least 4 responses will be observed, the study will be continued until a total of 28 patients will be entered.
- Second stage of Simon Minimax design: final analysis of activity on the whole series (n=28); the experimental treatment will be declared active if at least 12 responses will be observed.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||28 participants|

|Official Title:||Monoinstitutional Phase II Trial Addressing Tolerability and Activity of RCHOP Chemoimmunotherapy Preceded by BBB Permeabilization by t-NGR Necrosis Factor in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma|
|Actual Study Start Date :||January 27, 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||January 27, 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||January 27, 2020|
Experimental: NGR-hTNF + R-CHOP
Treatment includes one course of conventional R-CHOP followed by 5 courses of conventional R-CHOP (rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, prednisone) in conjunction with intravenous delivery of NGR-hTNF. Chemoimmunotherapy courses will be delivered every 3 weeks; day 22 is to be considered as day 1 of the subsequent course

- ORR: CR and PR based on IPCG response criteria [ Time Frame: up to 18 weeks ]Activity in terms of overall response rate (ORR): Complete Response (CR) and Partial Response (PR) of R-CHOP21 chemo-immunotherapy preceded by BBBP by NGR-hTNF.
- Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]DOR will be assessed for all responsive patients; time to documentation of tumor response to failure
- Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]PFS will be assessed for all treated patients; it is defined as the interval between the time of entry onto trial and failure (relapsing or progressive disease), death from any cause or date of the last visit of follow-up
- Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]OS will be assessed for all enrolled patients; it is defined as the time from entry onto trial until death from any cause or date of the last visit of follow-up.
- Tolerability: defined by of grade 3-4 AEs according to NCI CTCAE. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Tolerability will be assessed for all enrolled patients; it is defined by of grade 3-4 AEs according to NCI CTCAE.
