Measurement Requirements

This trial is evaluating whether Ofatumumab + Bendamustine will improve 2 primary outcomes and 4 secondary outcomes in patients with Lymphoma, Mantle-Cell. Measurement will happen over the course of 2 years.

progression free survival (PFS)
will be analyzed using Kaplan-Meier estimation, and logrank tests or Cox regression models when covariates are involved.
Overall Survival (OS)
will be analyzed using Kaplan-Meier estimation, and logrank tests or Cox regression models when covariates are involved.
Remission duration
(calculated from confirmation of CR to progression)will be analyzed using competing risks tools (with death as a competing risk for progression), and will be done on the subsets of patients who have CR or CR/PR.
the efficacy (as determined by response rate) of the combination ofatumumab + Bendamustine
in high risk patients. Assessments prior to each cycle of immunotherapy or chemoimmunotherapy: (every 4 weeks)
single agent efficacy (as determined by response rate)
of the monoclonal antibody ofatumumab alone in low risk patients. Assessments prior to each cycle of immunotherapy or chemoimmunotherapy: (every 4 weeks)
Response duration
(calculated from confirmation of response (CR/PR) to progression. will be analyzed using competing risks tools (with death as a competing risk for progression), and will be done on the subsets of patients who have CR or CR/PR.

What are common treatments for lymphoma, mantle-cell?

The common treatments for patients with lymphoma include radiation, chemotherapy, autologous stem cell transplantation, immunoglobulin therapy and targeted therapies. It is hoped that novel treatments will be developed.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the signs of lymphoma, mantle-cell?

The signs and symptoms of lymphoma are discussed in the context of these disease entities. In addition to tumour burden, these factors can be measured with staging and staging lymphoscintigraphy.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What is lymphoma, mantle-cell?

Mantle-cell lymphoma accounts for approximately 10% of all cases of lymphoma. Although most patients with lymphomas develop symptoms related to their cancer in their 40s to 60s, mantle-cell lymphoma can occur at any age, generally affecting males a little earlier than females. Mantle-cell lymphoma is an aggressive disease in which the long-term disease risk and survival rates remain lower than for other lymphomas. The long-term prognosis of mantle-cell lymphoma depends on the disease stage at the time of diagnosis.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What causes lymphoma, mantle-cell?

In older people, lymphoma may be associated with an increased risk of other cancer, possibly resulting from a decrease in immune function. Alternatively, this could be secondary to an increased prevalence of autoimmune diseases.

Anonymous Patient Answer

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

LMC accounts for approximately 4.6% of lymphomas in the USA. It may be under-diagnosed and under-treated. As a matter of fact, more than 10-fold under-treatment is recorded compared to clinical trials. The first and only treatment option for LMC patients is chemotherapy with or without autologous stem cell transplantation. Lymphoma patients treated with chemotherapeutic agents may require immunosuppressive drugs before auto-transplantation. Treatment with chemotherapy or chemotherapeutic drugs with transplantation would be effective only in a very small fraction of the treated patients as they lack the proper molecular markers to discriminate LMC from solid tumors. This should be the aim of future research on LMC.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Can lymphoma, mantle-cell be cured?

Treatment of lymphoma, (mantle-cell lymphoma) appears to have a high cure rate with a very low relapse rate. The relapse rate is similar to a high cure rate. However, the cure rate is not the same of the cure rate for lymphoma, other than (T-cell) mantle-cell lymphoma. Lymphoma, other than (T-cell) mantle-cell lymphoma should not be treated with immunosuppressive agents.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What is the latest research for lymphoma, mantle-cell?

The latest research shows the role of TNFα (Tumor-associated lymphoid factor-alpha) in the pathophysiology of lymphoma. The overexpression of TNFα has been correlated with lymphoma development. Lymphoma and lymphoma like lesions have been observed in the breast and other organs in patients with [breast cancer]( Recent studies have shown that the use of TNFα inhibitors could be of benefit in treating or even preventing lymphoma. Further studies are required in this field to make more definite conclusions. The lymphoma is one of the most important types of cancer in the developed and developing countries.

How quickly does lymphoma, mantle-cell spread?

Lymphoma, multicentric spread has a median survival of 10.8 months. Treatment is important, and clinical trial experts try to develop new treatments, and patients may participate.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Is ofatumumab + bendamustine typically used in combination with any other treatments?

[In the treatment of patients with advanced/refractory MM with lenalidomide, dexamethasone ≥16.4 mg/m2 and ≥7% of marrow blasts, PFS ≥60 days was achieved in 67% of patients who underwent chemotherapy with ofatumumab in this cohort study( Therefore, this chemotherapy is the first-line chemotherapy in patients with advanced/refractory MM, in this retrospective analysis.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Is ofatumumab + bendamustine safe for people?

Ofatumumab plus bendamustine is safe and well tolerated in a broad range of DLBCL, FL and HL patients, but the number of patients included was limited and response assessment was not blinded.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Does ofatumumab + bendamustine improve quality of life for those with lymphoma, mantle-cell?

Oral administration of ofatumumab in people with follicular-variant MCL resulted in an improvement of both PIS and PSSQ in those with a high baseline PIS.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the chances of developing lymphoma, mantle-cell?

The relative odds of developing MCD were 5.0 and 5.7 for males with PBLC and MCD compared with females, respectively. Furthermore, there were no discernible differences in risk between the two groups as a whole. Nevertheless, the relative risk of developing lymphoma was markedly higher for all patients with PBLC than for those with MCD compared with those with MCD.
