A Phase II Study of Rituximab, Lenalidomide, and Ibrutinib Combined With Chemotherapy For Patients With High Risk Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
MD Anderson Study Status
Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin Hydrochloride, Etoposide, Ibrutinib, Lenalidomide, Prednisone, Rituximab, Vincristine Sulfate
This phase II trial studies how well giving rituximab, lenalidomide, and ibrutinib with chemotherapy works in treating patients with high-risk diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. High-risk large B-cell lymphoma is a type of cancer of the immune system that is usually fast-growing in the body. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, may block cancer growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving rituximab, ibrutinib, and lenalidomide with combination chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.
