A Study of Brentuximab Vedotin and CHP in Frontline Treatment of PTCL With Less Than 10% CD30 Expression

Seagen logo


Status and phase

Active, not recruiting
Phase 2


Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma


Drug: doxorubicin
Drug: prednisone
Drug: cyclophosphamide
Drug: brentuximab vedotin

Study type


Funder types




Details and patient eligibility


This clinical trial will study brentuximab vedotin with CHP to find out if the drugs work for people who have certain types of peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). It will also find out what side effects occur when brentuximab vedotin and CHP are used together. A side effect is anything the drugs do besides treating cancer. CHP is a type of chemotherapy that uses three drugs (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and prednisone). CHP is approved by the FDA to treat certain types of PTCL.

  • The following non-sALCL PTCL subtypes are eligible:

    • PTCL - not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS)
    • Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL)
    • Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL; acute and lymphoma types only, must be positive for human T cell leukemia virus 1)
    • Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL)
    • Hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma
    • Monomorphic epitheliotropic intestinal T-cell lymphoma (MEITCL)
    • Indolent T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (T-LPD) of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract
    • Follicular T-cell lymphoma
    • Nodal peripheral T-cell lymphoma with T-follicular helper (TFH) phenotype
  • CD30 expression <10% by local assessment in tumor containing lymph node or other extranodal soft tissue biopsy

  • Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-avid disease by PET and measurable disease of at least 1.5 cm by CT, as assessed by the site radiologist

  • An Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status less than or equal to 2

Exclusion Criteria

  • Current diagnosis of any of the following:

    • sALCL
    • Primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders and lymphomas
    • Mycosis fungoides (MF), including transformed MF
  • History of another primary invasive cancer, hematologic malignancy, or myelodysplastic syndrome that has not been in remission for at least 3 years. Exceptions are malignancies with a negligible risk of metastasis or death (e.g., 5-year OS ≥90%), such as carcinoma in situ of the cervix, non-melanoma skin carcinoma, localized prostate cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ, or Stage I uterine cancer.

  • History of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML).

  • Cerebral/meningeal disease related to the underlying malignancy.

  • Prior treatment with brentuximab vedotin or doxorubicin.

  • Baseline peripheral neuropathy Grade 2 or higher (per the NCI CTCAE, Version 4.03) or subjects with the demyelinating form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome.

  • Left ventricular ejection fraction less than 45% or symptomatic cardiac disease (including symptomatic ventricular dysfunction, symptomatic coronary artery disease, and symptomatic arrhythmias), or myocardial infarction within the past 6 months, or previous treatment with complete cumulative dose of >300 mg/m2 of doxorubicin.

  • Any uncontrolled Grade 3 or higher (per the National Cancer Institute's Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, NCI CTCAE Version 4.03) viral, bacterial, or fungal infection within 2 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug. Routine antimicrobial prophylaxis is permitted.
