Trial Information

A Phase II Study of Bortezomib (VELCADE®) in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL)


- Determine the response rates (complete response and partial response) and duration of
response in patients with relapsed or refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma treated with

- Determine the safety and tolerability of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.

Patients receive bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Treatment repeats
every 21 days for up to 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 1 month and then at least
every 3 months for 2 years or until disease progression.
