Trial of Intravenous Fenretinide Emulsion for Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Peripheral T-cell Lymphomas

Active: Yes
Cancer Type: Hematopoietic Malignancies
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
Unknown Primary
NCT ID: NCT02495415
Trial Phases: Phase II Protocol IDs: FEN T-14 (primary)
Eligibility: 18 Years and older, Male and Female Study Type: Treatment
Study Sponsor: CerRx, Inc.
NCI Full Details:


This study addresses the hypothesis that intermittent treatment with fenretinide
intravenous emulsion will induce objective responses in patients with relapsed or
refractory Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma (PTCL) who have failed at least one prior systemic
therapy and will result in acceptable toxicities.


This is an open-label, multicenter, single arm efficacy and safety study in patients with
relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma, who have failed at least one prior
system therapy.

Approximately 140 patients will be enrolled. Patients will be treated with fenretinide
(4-HPR) intravenous emulsion administered as a continuous intravenous infusion for 5
days, once every 3 weeks until there is disease progression or unmanageable
treatment-related toxicities.

The primary study endpoint is objective response rate (ORR). Responses will be
categorized using criteria established by the International Harmonization Project on
Lymphoma. Safety will be evaluated during the study and for 30 days after the last
administration of study drug. Adverse events and laboratory studies will be graded
according to NCI-CTCAE v. 4.03.

**Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. These studies test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. People who take part in cancer clinical trials have an opportunity to contribute to scientists’ knowledge about cancer and to help in the development of improved cancer treatments.
