Brief Summary:
This is a randomized, open-label, active-control, multicenter Phase 2 study of VELCADE+fludarabine in comparison with rituximab+fludarabine in subjects with relapsed advanced follicular lymphoma. Eligible subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio between the 2 treatment arms (55 subjects per arm).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Follicular Lymphoma Drug: fludarabine Drug: rituximab Drug: VELCADE Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 12 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Open-Label, Multicenter Phase 2 Study of VELCADE With Fludarabine in Comparison to Rituximab With Fludarabine in Follicular Lymphoma Patients Previously Treated With Rituximab
Study Start Date : September 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2011
Actual Study Completion Date : October 2011


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: VELCADE and fludarabine (Group A)
VELCADE 1.6 mg/m2 intravenously (IV) on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 and fludarabine 40mg/m2/day orally on Days 1 to 5 of every 35-day cycle
Drug: fludarabine
fludarabine 40mg/m2/day orally on Days 1 to 5 of every 35-day cycle

Drug: VELCADE
1.6 mg/m2 intravenously (IV) on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of every 35-day cycle

Active Comparator: fludarabine and rituximab (Group B)
fludarabine 40mg/m2/day orally on Days 1 to 5 and rituximab 375mg/m2 on Day 1 of every 35-day cycle
Drug: fludarabine
fludarabine 40mg/m2/day orally on Days 1 to 5 of every 35-day cycle

Drug: rituximab
rituximab 375mg/m2 on Day 1 of every 35-day cycle




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 8 cycles (1 cycle is 35 days: 280 days) ]
    The proportion of response-evaluable subjects who achieved a confirmed complete response (CR) or complete response unconfirmed (CRu). Disease response and progression were evaluated according to modified International Workshop Response Criteria (IWRC) criteria by radiographic imaging and other procedures as necessary.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 8 cycles (1 cycle is 35 days: 280 days) ]
    The proportion of subjects who achieve CR, CRu, or partial response (PR) relative to the response evaluable population. Disease response and progression were evaluated according to the modified IWRC criteria by radiographic imaging and other procedures as necessary.
