Japanese phase II study in untreated patients with CD20 positive B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma evaluating safety of 90-minute infusion of rituximab.

Basic Information

Recruitment status completed
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedCD20 positive follicular lymphoma or diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
Date of first enrollment01/09/2017
Target sample size33
Countries of recruitmentJapan
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)investigational material(s) Generic name etc : IDEC-C2B8 INN of investigational material : Rituximab (genetical recombination) Therapeutic category code : 429 Other antitumor agents Dosage and Administration for Investigational material : Patients will receive IDEC-C2B8 plus CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone) for 6 or 8 cycles. [Rituximab] During Cycle 1, rituximab is diluted to a final concentration of 4 mg/mL and rituximab is administered at an initial rate of 50 mg/hr. The infusion rate is escalated by 50 mg/hr increments every 30 minutes to a maximum infusion rate of 400 mg/hr. If rituximab infusion in Cycle 1 was tolerated without grade 3/4 infusion reactions, subsequent rituximab infusions are administered over a total time of 90 minutes with a total diluted volume of 250 mL. [CHOP] Prednisolone was administered prior to rituximab infusion. control material(s) Generic name etc : - INN of investigational material : - Therapeutic category code : Dosage and Administration for Investigational material : -


Primary Outcomeother Feasibility and tolerability Percentage of patients who developed grade 3 or 4 infusion reactions resulting from 90-min infusion of rituximab during days 1 and 2 of cycle 2
Secondary Outcomeefficacy Best Overall Response Rate, Complete Response Rate
