Study of AEB071 (a Protein Kinase C Inhibitor) in Patients With CD79-mutant Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01402440
(Study terminated due to enrolment challenges and availability of other options for DLBCL patients. The termination is not a consequence of any safety concern.)
This study has two phases, a dose escalation phase and a dose expansion phase. For dose escalation, the primary objective is to estimate the maximum tolerated dose of AEB071 in patients with diffuse large b-cell lymphoma. The endpoint for this objective will be occurrence of Dose Limiting Toxicity. For dose expansion, the primary objective is to characterize the safety and tolerability of the maximum tolerated dose or recommended phase 2 dose of AEB071 in patients with diffuse large b-cell lymphoma. The endpoints for this objective will be occurrence of Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), assessment of clinical laboratory values, and vital sign measurements.

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) with activating mutations in CD79 (A or B subunits). DLBCL that arose from transformed indolent lymphoma is allowed.
Prior treatment and relapse following anthracycline-based chemotherapy and autologous bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Patients who are not transplant eligible may be considered for the study following a single regimen of chemotherapy such as R-CHOP or R-EPOCH alone. There is no limit to prior therapy allowed.
Patients may be treated with localized radiation to as many as two sites of disease, so long as measurable or evaluable disease remains at untreated sites.
Patients may be treated with corticosteriods immediately prior to enrollment and during the course of the study treatment as long as steriod treatment is tapered to a toal daily dosage of 10mg or less of prednisone (or it's equivalent) prior to AEB071 administration
WHO performance status of ≤2
Patients at screening who are treated with strong inducers or inhibitors of cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) that can not be discontinued.
Impaired cardiac function or clinically significant cardiac diseases, including any of the following:
History or presence of ventricular tachyarrhythmia
Presence of unstable atrial fibrillation (ventricular response > 100 bpm); Patients with stable atrial fibrillation are eligible, provided they do not meet any of the other cardiac exclusion criteria.
Angina pectoris or acute myocardial infarction ≤ 3 months prior to starting study drug
Other clinically significant heart disease (e.g., symptomatic congestive heart failure; uncontrolled arrhythmia or hypertension; history of labile hypertension or poor compliance with an antihypertensive regimen)
Patients with another malignancy that was treated within the last three years with the exceptions of localized basal cell carcinoma and cervical carcinoma.
Patients with impairment of GI function or GI disease that could interfere with the absorption of AEB071.
Patients with a known history of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
HIV testing is not required as part of this study
Patients with a known history of active hepatitis B or C infection unless they are on antiviral therapy
The determination of active hepatitis status should be as per standard of care at each site
Hepatitis B and C testing is not required as part of this study
Time since the last prior therapy for treatment of underlying malignancy**:
Cytotoxic chemotherapy: ≤ than the duration of the most recent cycle of the previous regimen (with a minimum of 2 weeks for all)
Biologic therapy (e.g., antibodies): ≤ 4 weeks
≤ 5 x t1/2 of a small molecule therapeutic, not otherwise defined above
**Patients must have recovered or stabilized from all toxicities related to their previous treatment except for alopecia
Patients with any history of significant coagulopathy or a medical condition requiring long term systemic anticoagulation that would interfere with biopsies.
Patients having undergone major surgery less than 4 weeks prior to enrollment or that have not fully recovered from prior surgery.
Pregnant or nursing (lactating) women
Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply
