  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ofatumumab and bendamustine combination therapy in patients with indolent B-cell NHL that did not respond to rituximab or a rituximab-containing regimen during or within 6 months of the last rituximab treatment.

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Open Label Study of Ofatumumab and Bendamustine Combination Therapy Compared With Bendamustine Monotherapy in Indolent B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Unresponsive to Rituximab or a Rituximab-Containing Regimen During or Within Six Months of Treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical benefit, changes in patient reported outcome measures, and pharmacokinetics following ofatumumab and bendamustine combination therapy [ Time Frame: 89 months ]
  • Overall response rate, overall survival, time to and duration of response following ofatumumab and bendamustine combination therapy [ Time Frame: 89 months ]

Enrollment: 346
Actual Study Start Date: August 26, 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 18, 2023
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 30, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ofatumumab and Bendamustine (Arm A)
Up to 8 cycles of bendamustine (90 mg/m2) on Days 1,2 every 21 days with12 doses of ofatumumab (1000 mg, Day 1 q21 days when with bendamustine and q28 days when given as monotherapy)
Drug: Ofatumumab and Bendamustine infusions (Arm A)
Up to 8 cycles of Bendamustine (90 mg/m2 Days 1 and 2, every 21 days) given in combination with 12 doses of ofatumumab (1000 mg). Ofatumumab will be given on day 1 of each cycle of bendamustine as long as patients in Arm A receive bendamustine. Once patients in Arm A complete bendamustine therapy, the remaining doses of ofatumumab will be given monthly until all 12 doses are completed.
Active Comparator: Bendamustine (Arm B)
Up o 8 cycles of bendamustine (120 mg/m2) on Days 1,2 every 21 days
Drug: Bendamustine infusion (Arm B)
Bendamustine (120 mg/m2 Days 1 and 2, every 21 days, up to 8 cycles).

Detailed Description:

Ofatumumab is an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody shown to have monotherapy activity in patients with follicular lymphoma that has relapsed following rituximab-containing therapy. Bendamustine was approved by FDA for the treatment of in patients with indolent B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) that did not respond to rituximab or a rituximab-containing regimen during or within 6 months of the last rituximab treatment.

Biologics have demonstrated enhanced efficacy when added to chemotherapeutic combinations in the frontline treatment for indolent NHL. The combination of ofatumumab and bendamustine may provide additional clinical benefit and efficacy to those who no longer respond to rituximab or rituximab-containing regimens.

The objective of this study is to determine the effect of ofatumumab and bendamustine combination therapy in patients with indolent B-cell NHL that did not respond to rituximab or a rituximab-containing regimen during or within 6 months of the last rituximab treatment.
