Trial Information

A Phase II Study of CCI-779 in Previously Treated Patients With Mantle Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma


I. Determine the objective responses in patients with previously treated mantle cell
non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with CCI-779.

II. Determine the toxic effects of this drug in these patients. III. Determine whether this
drug inhibits cell proliferation pathways in these patients.


Patients receive CCI-779 IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Courses repeat every
28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stable
disease receive a maximum of 6 courses. Patients with partial response receive a maximum of
12 courses. Patients with complete response (CR) receive 2 additional courses beyond CR.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, every 6 months
for 1 year, and then annually for 2 years.

- See Disease Characteristics

- At least 3 weeks since prior radiotherapy

- No concurrent radiotherapy for MCL

- Any number of prior treatments allowed

- No other concurrent investigational or commercial agents for MCL

- No concurrent drugs that induce cytochrome p450 (e.g., carbamazepine, phenobarbital,
phenytoin, ketoconazole, diltiazem, rifampin, terfenadine, cisapride, astemizole, or

- No concurrent immunosuppressive therapies

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Proportion of patients who achieve a confirmed CR or PR during the first 24 weeks of treatment defined by the International Workshop criteria

Outcome Description:

The proportion will be evaluated separately for each dose group. The proportion of patients who achieve a confirmed CR or PR, or success, will be estimated by the number of successes divided by the total number of evaluable patients. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals for the true success proportion will be calculated according to the approach of Duffy and Santner.

Outcome Time Frame:

Up to 24 weeks
