A Study of PCI-32765 (Ibrutinib) in Combination With Either Bendamustine and Rituximab or Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone in Patients With Previously Treated Indolent Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PCI-32765 (ibrutinib) administered in combination with either bendamustine and rituximab (BR) or rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) in adult patients with previously treated indolent Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed diagnosis of B-cell indolent Non-Hodgkin lymphoma with histological subtype limited to follicular lymphoma or marginal zone lymphoma

  • At least 1 measurable site of disease according to Revised Response Criteria for Malignant Lymphoma 2007
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status grade 0 or 1
  • Laboratory values within protocol-defined parameters
  • Agrees to protocol-defined use of effective contraception
  • Men must agree not to donate sperm during and after the study for 6 months after the last dose of bendamustine, 12 months after the last dose of rituximab, or 3 months after the last dose of study medication, whichever is later
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test at screening

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior treatment according to protocol-defined criteria
  • Unable to receive background chemotherapy based on prior treatment history and cardiac function
  • Known central nervous system lymphoma
  • Diagnosed or treated for malignancy other than indolent Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • History of stroke or intracranial hemorrhage within 6 months prior to randomization
  • Requires anticoagulation with warfarin or equivalent Vitamin K antagonists or treatment with strong CYP3A4/5 inhibitors
  • Clinically significant cardiovascular disease
  • Known history of human immunodeficiency virus or active infection with hepatitis C or B or any uncontrolled active systemic infection requiring intravenous antibiotics
