A Phase 1, Dose-Finding Study of Folotyn® (Pralatrexate Injection) Plus Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone (CHOP) in Patients with Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma (PTCL)
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of pralatrexate (Folotyn) that can be given in combination with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) in patients with PTCL.
Disease Group: Lymphoma
Treatment Agent: Cyclophosphamide,Doxorubicin,Pralatrexate,Prednisone,Vincristine
Treatment Location: Both at MD Anderson & Other Sites
Sponsor: Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Allos Therapeutics, Inc.,
Primary Objective: 1) To evaluate the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of pralatrexate in combination with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) regimen in patients with newly diagnosed peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). Secondary Objectives: 1) To evaluate the safety and tolerability of pralatrexate in combination with CHOP (Fol- CHOP). 2) To evaluate the Objective Response Rate (ORR) of 6 cycles of Fol-CHOP. 3)To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of pralatrexate when given in combination with CHOP.
IRB Review and Approval Date: 02/09/2016

3) Patient with uncontrolled hypertension.
4) Patient with central nervous system (CNS) metastases.
5) Patient with active uncontrolled infection, underlying medical condition, or other serious illness that would impair the ability of the patient to receive protocol treatment.
6) Patient has had major surgery within 30 days prior to enrollment.
7) Patients has used any investigational drugs, biologics, or devices within 30 days prior to study treatment or plans to use any of these during the course of the study.
8) Patient has had previous exposure to pralatrexate.
9) Patient is pregnant or breast-feeding.
