Details and patient eligibility


This study evaluates ADCT-402 in participants with Relapsed or Refractory B-cell Lineage Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (B-NHL). Participants will participate in a dose escalation phase (Part 1) and dose expansion (Part 2). In Part 2, participants will receive the dose level identified in Part 1.

Full description

Study ADCT-402-101 is the first clinical study with ADCT-402 in participants with B-cell Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). ADCT-402 is an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) composed of a humanized antibody directed against human cluster of differentiation 19 (CD19), stochastically conjugated via a valine-alanine cleavable, maleimide linker to a pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) dimer cytotoxin. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. In Part 1 (dose escalation) participants will receive infusions of ADCT-402, at escalating doses. Part 1 will continue until the maximum tolerated dose is determined. In Part 2 (expansion), participants will be assigned to the recommended dose level(s) and schedule(s) of ADCT-402 identified in Part 1 by the Dose Escalation Steering Committee. For each participant, the study will include a screening period (up to 28 days), a treatment period (until withdrawal), and a follow-up period to assess disease progression and survival for up to 12 months after the last dose of study drug. The total study duration will be dependent on overall participant tolerability to the study drug and response to treatment. It is anticipated that the duration of the entire study (Parts 1 and 2) could be approximately 3 years from first participant treated to last participant completed.

  • Significant medical comorbidities, including uncontrolled hypertension (diastolic blood pressure greater than 115 mm Hg), unstable angina, congestive heart failure (greater than New York Heart Association class II), severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, or electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia, poorly controlled diabetes, severe chronic pulmonary disease, coronary angioplasty, or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to screening, or uncontrolled atrial or ventricular cardiac arrhythmias.
  • Use of any other experimental medication(s) within 14 days or 5 half-lives but in no case less than 14 days prior to start of study treatment on Cycle 1, Day 1, except if approved by Sponsor.
  • Steroid use equivalent to greater than 20 mg of prednisone within 4 weeks (28 days) prior to Day 1.
  • Major surgery, chemotherapy, systemic therapy (excluding steroids hydroxyurea steroids, and any targeted small molecules or biologics), or radiotherapy, within 14 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is shorter) prior to Cycle 1, Day 1 treatment, except if approved by the Sponsor.
  • Failure to recover (to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] Grade 0 or Grade 1) from acute non hematologic toxicity (except all grades alopecia or Grade 2 or lower neuropathy), due to previous therapy, prior to Screening.
  • Congenital long QT syndrome or a corrected QTc interval ≥450 ms at the Screening visit.
  • Active second primary malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancers, non-metastatic prostate cancer, in situ cervical cancer, ductal or lobular carcinoma in situ of the breast, or other malignancy determined not be exclusionary.
  • Any other significant medical illness, abnormality, or condition that would make the participant inappropriate for study participation or put the participant at risk.

Trial design

Primary purpose




Interventional model

Single Group Assignment


None (Open label)

183 participants in 2 patient groups

Part 1: ADCT-402 dose escalation
Experimental group
In Part 1 (dose escalation) participants will receive intravenous (IV) infusions of ADCT-402 at escalating doses, according to a 3+3 study design. Doses will be escalated from 15 µg/kg to 200 µg/kg on Day 1 of each cycle, with cycle lengths of 3 or 6 weeks.
Drug: ADCT-402
Part 2: ADCT-402 dose expansion
Experimental group
In Part 2 (expansion), participants will be assigned to the recommended dose level(s) and schedule(s) of ADCT-402 identified in Part 1 by the Dose Escalation Steering Committee. Participants will receive intravenous (IV) infusions of ADCT-402 at either 120 μg/kg or 150 μg/kg on Day 1 of each 3 week cycle (Q3W).
Drug: ADCT-402
