Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate efficacy using the Overall Response Rate (ORR) as assessed by an Independent Review Committee (IRC) in subjects with MZL [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate efficacy parameter such as duration of response (DOR) to ibrutinib in subjects with MZL [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]
  • Frequency, severity, and relatedness of adverse events [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]
  • To determine the plasma pharmacokinetics of ibrutinib and the metabolite, PCI-45227 [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]
  • To evaluate efficacy parameter such as progression-free survival (PFS) to ibrutinib in subjects with MZL [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]
  • To evaluate efficacy parameter such as overall survival (OS) to ibrutinib in subjects with MZL [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate prognostic and predictive biomarkers relative to treatment outcomes [ Time Frame: At the earliest, 52 weeks after last patient enrolled ]

Enrollment: 63
Study Start Date: December 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2018

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: ibrutinib
ibrutinib capsules: 560 mg once daily
Drug: ibrutinib

Detailed Description:
Ibrutinib is a first-in-class, potent, orally administered covalent inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK). Inhibition of BTK blocks downstream B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling pathways and thus prevents B-cell proliferation. In vitro, ibrutinib inhibits purified BTK and selected members of the kinase family with 10-fold specificity compared with non-BTK kinases. Phase 1 and 2 studies of ibrutinib in B-cell malignancies demonstrate modest toxicity and significant single agent activity in a variety of B-cell malignancies, including NHL.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Key Inclusion criteria:

  • Histologically documented marginal zone lymphoma including splenic, nodal, and extranodal sub-types; subjects with splenic MZL must have an additional measurable lesion, nodal or extranodal, as described in inclusion criteria 5
  • Previously received one or more lines of therapy including at least one CD20-directed regimen (either as monotherapy or as chemoimmunotherapy) with documented failure to achieve at least PR or documented PD after, the most recent systemic treatment regimen
  • Men and women ≥18 years of age
  • ECOG performance status of ≤2
  • ≥1 measurable lesion site on CT scan (>1.5 cm in longest dimension). Lesions in anatomical locations (such as extremities or soft tissue lesions) that are not well visualized by CT may be measured by MRI instead. (Subjects with spleen-only disease are considered as not having measurable disease.)
  • Life expectancy of >3 months, in the opinion of the investigator

Key Exclusion criteria:

  • Medically apparent CNS lymphoma or leptomeningeal disease
  • History of other malignancies except adequately treated non melanoma skin cancer, curatively treated in-situ cancer, or other solid tumors curatively treated with no evidence of disease for ≥2 years
  • History of allogeneic stem-cell (or other organ) transplantation
  • Any chemotherapy, anticancer antibodies, or other systemic anticancer therapy within 21 days of the first dose of study drug
  • Any external beam radiation therapy within 6 weeks prior to the first dose of the study drug
  • Concurrent use of warfarin or other vitamin K antagonists
  • Concurrent use of a strong CYP3A inhibitor. Subjects who have received a strong CYP3A inhibitor prior to entering the study must have discontinued therapy for at least 5 half lives of the prohibited medication.
  • Recent infection requiring IV anti-infective treatment that was completed ≤14 days before the first dose of study drug
  • Unresolved toxicities from prior anti-cancer therapy, defined as having not resolved to CTCAE Grade 0 or 1, or to the levels dictated in the eligibility criteria with the exception of alopecia
  • Inadequate organ function as defined on laboratory tests
