Emergent BioSolutions has initiated a Phase 1b/2 study (16011) to evaluate TRU-016 in conjunction with rituximab and bendamustine in patients with relapsed indolent non-Hodgkin’s B-cell lymphomas, small lymphocytic lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and marginal zone lymphoma.

Developed in collaboration with Abbott, TRU-016 is a CD37-directed Small Modular ImmunoPharmaceutical protein therapeutic in development as a treatment for B-cell malignancies.

The company expects to recruit around 88 subjects in the trials in patients with relapsed indolent B-cell lymphoma and those who have failed prior treatments.

The Phase 1b portion of the study aims to establish the Phase 2 dose of TRU-016 given in combination with rituximab and bendamustine.

However, the Phase 2 portion will be an expansion study of approximately 76 additional patients to examine the safety and efficacy of TRU-016 in combination with 375mg/m² of rituximab and 90mg/m² of bendamustine, versus bendamustine and rituximab.

Emergent Clinical Research vice-president and chief medical officer Scott Stromatt said, “Based on the data, as well as data from our ongoing clinical studies of TRU-016 for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, we believe that TRU-016 in combination with bendamustine and rituximab could produce meaningful results in patients with indolent NHL.”
