A Randomized Phase 2 Study of CDX-1127 (Varlilumab) in Combination with Nivolumab in Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas

Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions:
    Lymphoblastic (diffuse) Lymphoma
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female
  • Other Inclusion Criteria:
    1) Patients must have a histopathologically confirmed diagnosis of an aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is recurrent or refractory to standard therapy. 2) Patients must have measurable disease, defined as at least one lesion that is > 15 mm (1.5 cm) in the longest axis on cross-sectional imaging and measureable in two perpendicular dimensions per computed tomography (spiral CT), PET-CT or MRI. 3) Patients must have disease that has relapsed after or is refractory to at least 2 lines of standard therapy. The remaining standard treatment options are unlikely to be effective in the opinion of the treating physician, or patient is felt to be ineligible for such therapies or the patient refuses such therapies. Patients who have undergone autologous stem cell transplant are eligible as long as they meet all other criteria.

You may not be eligible for this study if the following are true:

  • 1) Patients who have had chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) or at least 5 half-lives, whichever is longer, prior to entering the study. 2) Patients should be excluded if they have had prior treatment with an anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, anti-PD-L2, anti-CTLA-4 antibody, or any other antibody or drug specifically targeting T-cell co-stimulation or immune checkpoint pathways. 3) Patients who have received autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) = 12 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug. 4) Patients with evidence of active disease in the central nervous system (CNS) defined as either the presence of active lesions on MRI obtained within 4 weeks of registration or progressive neurological decline.
