Trial Design

3 Treatment Groups

Arm C (CHO[E]P)
Arm A (duvelisib, CHO[E]P)

This trial requires 170 total participants across 3 different treatment groups

This trial involves 3 different treatments. Oral Azacitidine is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will be divided into 2 treatment groups. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are in Phase 2 and have already been tested with other people.

Arm A (duvelisib, CHO[E]P)Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV on day 1, doxorubicin IV on day 1, vincristine IV on day 1, etoposide IV on day 1 or days 1-3 or PO QD on days 2-3 for patients =< 60 years old, and prednisone PO QD on days 1-5. Patients also receive duvelisib PO BID on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Arm B (CC-486, CHO[E]P)Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV on day 1, doxorubicin IV on day 1, vincristine IV on day 1, etoposide IV on day 1 or days 1-3 or PO QD on days 2-3 for patients =< 60 years old, and prednisone PO QD on days 1-5. Patients also receive CC-486 PO QD on days -6 to 0 of cycle -1 and days 8-21 of cycles 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Arm C (CHO[E]P)Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV on day 1, doxorubicin IV on day 1, vincristine IV on day 1, etoposide IV on day 1 or days 1-3 or PO QD on days 2-3 for patients =< 60 years old, and prednisone PO QD on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Eligibility Criteria

This trial is for patients born any sex aged 18 and older. There are 10 eligibility criteria to participate in this trial as listed below.

Mark “yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Patients with a diagnosis of other PTCL subtype histologies other than those specified in the inclusion criteria are excluded including large cell transformation of mycosis fungoides
Patients will be stratified by presence or absence of TFH phenotype (i.e. diagnosis of AITL, TFH-PTCL, follicular T-cell lymphoma) based on local review of pathology. Determination of TFH phenotype can be defined by expression of two or more of the following markers CD10, BCL6, CXCL13, ICOS, and PD1 by immunohistochemistry
Histologically confirmed diagnosis of peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) with < 10% CD30 expression by immunohistochemistry in the following subtypes (by local review): nodal T-cell lymphoma with T-follicular helper (TFH) phenotype (TFH-PTCL), follicular T-cell lymphoma, PTCL-not otherwise specified (NOS), angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), enteropathy associated T-cell lymphoma, monomorphic epitheliotropic intestinal T-cell lymphoma
Patients with expression of CD30 in >= 10% of the tumor (based on local immunohistochemistry review) regardless of histology will not be permitted
Measurable disease as defined by the Lugano criteria
No prior systemic therapy for lymphoma (excluding corticosteroids)
Not pregnant and not nursing, because this study involves an investigational agent whose genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects on the developing fetus and newborn are unknown. Therefore, for women of childbearing potential only, a negative urine or serum pregnancy test done =< 7 days prior to registration is required
Age >= 18 years
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status =< 2
Platelet count >= 75,000/mm^3 (>= 50,000/mm^3 if secondary to bone marrow involvement from lymphoma per investigator assessment; the first 12 patients on each arm of the study must have platelets >= 75,000/mm^3 regardless of bone marrow involvement)

What are common treatments for lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

Lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral is treated through various modes of therapy including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy. More recently, some lymphomas are treated with stem cell transplantation.

Unverified Answer

Can lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral be cured?

Add answer

Patients with lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral, have a good long-term prognosis. There might be a role for bone marrow transplantation, but no evidence on which to base it would be available. One of the major issues in the management of this patient group is the early stage at diagnosis, because there is very little evidence to advise on long-term management. The UK Lymphoma Multidisciplinary Group recommends an initial watch-and-wait policy following the current 'wait and see' regime. [Hodgkin's (n.d.).

Unverified Answer

How many people get lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral a year in the United States?

Add answer

Between 25,000 and 80,000 Americans will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2013, according to ACSC, whereas the number of people diagnosed with T-cell, Nodal, or Peripheral Lymphoma is expected to be less than 50.

Unverified Answer

What causes lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

The specific cause of T-cell lymphomas is not well understood, as many lymphomas are thought to arise from a defective, aberrant peripheral T-cell. Oncogenes appear to be implicated in a smaller proportion of cases. In non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the incidence of non-mucosa-associated lymphatic tissue can approach that of B-cell lymphoma and may be due to differing etiologies. The most common, and frequently treated, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is diffuse large-cell lymphoma (predominantly CD5+/leukaemia-associated "double-hit" lymphoproliferative disorder).

Unverified Answer

What is lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

Primary peripheral B-cell lymphoma typically presents in persons older than 65 years. In this series, B-cell lymphoma accounted for 37% of all lymphomas, and the rate of lymphoma development was highest in patients younger than 60 years. The majority of secondary lymphomas exhibited a more favorable clinical behavior than in cases of primary B-cell lymphoma.

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

Lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral, is an uncommon and complex condition characterised by several signs. The presence of a lump in the neck, a swollen neck, or in the area where lymph nodes would normally be located may be signs that the disease is more advanced than you may expect.

Unverified Answer

What does oral azacitidine usually treat?

Add answer

These case reports demonstrate that a new oral therapy, azacitidine, is useful for the treatment of CMML and that it also has a favorable safety profile.

Unverified Answer

Does lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral run in families?

Add answer

The occurrence of cancer in a first-degree relative is a risk factor for subsequent lymphoma in the first-degree relative. The risk is much greater if lymphoma evolves to CLL. A family history of lymphoma does not seem to influence the course of the disease in the lymphoma patient.

Unverified Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

Although the chemotherapy and rituximab have the same effectiveness of achieving a complete remission with little side effect. Lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral is more challenging to treat compare to lymphoma, t-cell, other types.

Unverified Answer

What are the chances of developing lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

There are two forms of lymphoma. One is a common blood cancers (myeloma and lymphoma) which can be effectively treated. The other is t-cell lymphoma that can be effectively treated. Patients with less common cancers like non-Hodgkin lymphoma should be advised to undergo clinical exam annually as patients who develop less common cancers such as lymphoma can be hard to identify on a routine basis.

Unverified Answer

What are the latest developments in oral azacitidine for therapeutic use?

Add answer

Oral AZA has been demonstrated to be effective in patients with t-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia who had previously been treated with BHZL and are now on maintenance therapy with AZA alone or combination with other cytostatic agents. This finding indicates that AZA can be administered, in some patients, without an increase in the toxicities normally associated with this approach to treatment.

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for lymphoma, t-cell, peripheral?

Add answer

Results from a recent paper suggest a large proportion of lymphoma patients would benefit from clinical trials. Physicians should consider clinical trials when lymphoma presents with complications not related to the B-cell precursor disease itself, and when chemotherapy or other therapies should be considered.
