Brief Summary:
  1. Phase I portion of this study will evaluate the efficacy and saftey of toripalimab plus rituximab in treating untreated elderly diffuse large B cell lymphoma patients.
  2. The aim of phase II portion of this study will evaluate the efficacy and saftey of toripalimab plus rituximab followed by R-CHOP(rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) regimen in treating untreated elderly diffuse large B cell lymphoma patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma High-grade B-cell Lymphoma Follicular Lymphoma Grade IIIb Transformed Lymphoma EBV-Positive DLBCL, Nos ALK-Positive Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma Drug: Toripalimab, Rituximab Drug: R-CHOP Protocol Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The study consisted of a phase I and II portion. In phase I, patients accepted at least 2 cycles of toripalimab plus rituximab. Another 2 cycles of toripalimab plus rituximab will offered if they achieved CR. In phase II, all patients accpet R-CHOP regimen. If patient get CR after, they will accept 4 cycles of R-CHOP regimen, patients with PR,SD or PD will accept 6 cycles of R-CHOP.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate (ORR) of toripalimab combined with Rituximab , Investigator-Assessed [ Time Frame: upto 36 months ]
    Overall response was determined on the basis of investigator assessments according to the Lymphoma response to immunomodulatory therapy criteria (LYRIC) for Malignant Lymphoma, 2016. Tumor assessments were performed with CT/MRI with or without PET. Overall response was defined as the disappearance of all evidence of disease, regression of measurable disease, and no new sites.

  2. The optimal dosage of Toripalimab combined with Rituximab [ Time Frame: upto 6 months ]
    Maximum tolerable dose(MTD)and dose-limiting toxicity(DLT)of Toripalimab will be conducted in Phase Ib clinical studies. MTD and DLT is defined as protocol-defined Toripalimab related events.

  3. Overall Response Rate (ORR) of toripalimab combined with Rituximab followed by R-CHOP regimen, Investigator-Assessed [ Time Frame: upto 36 months ]
    Overall response was determined on the basis of investigator assessments according to the Lymphoma response to immunomodulatory therapy criteria (LYRIC) for Malignant Lymphoma, 2016. Tumor assessments were performed with CT/MRI with or without PET. Overall response was defined as the disappearance of all evidence of disease, regression of measurable disease, and no new sites.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Time from diagnosis until relapse or progression, non-protocol re-treatment of lymphoma, or death as a result of any cause, assessed up to 36 months ]
    Statistical analysis will entail descriptive statistics, and survival analysis including Kaplan-Meier estimates, log-rank testing of univariate prognostic factors, Cox proportional hazards analysis, as well as T-testing and regression analysis for comparing continuous variables in correlative study data.

  2. Overall survival(OS) [ Time Frame: OS is defined as the time from the treatment date to the death from any cause up to 60 months ]
    Statistical analysis will entail descriptive statistics, and survival analysis including Kaplan-Meier estimates, log-rank testing of univariate prognostic factors, Cox proportional hazards analysis, as well as T-testing and regression analysis for comparing continuous variables in correlative study data.

  3. Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    An adverse event is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with the treatment. An adverse event can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding, for example), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a pharmaceutical product, whether or not considered related to the pharmaceutical product. Preexisting conditions which worsen during a study are also considered as adverse events.
