Awards & highlights


This trial is testing a combination of two drugs to treat B cell NHL and CLL. They are testing to see what is the maximum safe dose and if the combination is effective.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Participants must have available tumor tissue, good organ function, and be in fair health (ECOG grade 0-1). Women who can bear children must use effective contraception and not plan pregnancy or breastfeeding. People are excluded if they've had bad reactions to MALT1 inhibitors before or have active brain involvement by cancer.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing the combination of a new drug called JNJ-67856633 with an existing drug named Ibrutinib to find a safe dosage level and see how well it works against certain blood cancers like NHL and CLL. The goal is to establish the recommended dose for further studies.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include typical reactions seen with cancer treatments such as nausea, fatigue, diarrhea, risk of infection due to low blood cell counts, liver problems indicated by abnormal tests, and possibly heart issues which will be closely monitored.

Other Research
The most common treatments for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) often involve targeting B cell pathways, such as with Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors like ibrutinib. BTK inhibitors block the BTK enzyme, essential for B cell receptor signaling, thereby disrupting the survival and proliferation of malignant B cells. Additionally, agents like JNJ-67856633 likely target other components of the B cell signaling pathways, further impairing the growth and survival of lymphoma cells. This targeted approach is crucial for NHL patients as it offers the potential for more effective and less toxic treatments compared to traditional chemotherapy.
Response to second-line therapy defines the potential for cure in patients with recurrent diffuse large B-cell lymphoma: implications for the development of novel therapeutic strategies.
