Detailed Description

This is a Phase 2, single-arm, open-label, multicenter study to determine the effect of leucovorin in preventing or reducing Folotyn-related Grade 2 or higher oral mucositis in patients with hematological malignancies including PTCL and CTCL. Patients with hematological malignancies, including PTCL and CTCL, will be enrolled based on meeting all protocol eligibility criteria. The primary endpoint will be evaluated in the first 7-week treatment cycle. For patients who respond to study treatment, the Investigator can treat patients for a total of 6 cycles. Approximately 37 patients will be enrolled. Safety, as assessed by reported SAEs, will continue to be monitored during the optional treatment period. Efficacy will be followed to the extent that it is evaluated according to the Institution's standard of care. No formal analysis of efficacy will be made.

Interventions

  • Drug: Folotyn and Leucovorin
  • Drug: Folic Acid
    • Folic acid (1.0 mg PO QD) is to be initiated at least 10 days prior to Folotyn administration, or per the USPI for Folotyn.
  • Drug: Vitamin B12
    • Vitamin B12 (1 mg IM) is to be administered within 10 weeks prior to initiation of Folotyn and can be administered during Screening. Subsequent vitamin B12 injections may be given the same day as treatment with Folotyn and patients are to receive vitamin B12 every 8 to 10 weeks while treated with Folotyn.

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Folotyn and Leucovorin
    • Folotyn will be administered by IV push at a dose of 30 mg/m2 once weekly for 6 weeks in each cycle, followed by 1 week of rest (no treatment). Leucovorin (25 mg tablets) will be taken orally tid for 2 days for a total of six doses (150 mg cumulative weekly dose), beginning 24 hours after each dose of Folotyn is administered. Folic acid and Vitamin B12 is given prior to initiation of Folotyn.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Objective Response Rate
    • Time Frame: 17 weeks
    • To evaluate objective response rate (ORR) of Folotyn in patients with relapsed or refractory (R/R) PTCL.
