A Phase 2 Study of Brentuximab Vedotin in Combination With Standard of Care Treatment (Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone [RCHOP]) as Front-line Therapy in Patients With Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)


Rochester, Minn.

Trial status:

Open for Enrollment

Why is this study being done?

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of brentuximab vedotin in combination with RCHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) (known as A+RCHOP) in patients with DLBCL that have never been treated. Patients will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to receive RCHOP together with 1 of 2 doses of brentuximab vedotin. Patients will be tested to see if there is a difference in side effects between the 2 groups.
