Celestimo: This Phase III trial is comparing the effectiveness of two targeted therapies (mosunetuzumab and rituximab) when they are combined with another cancer drug (lenalidomide) in people with follicular lymphoma who have received previous treatmentPhase III Randomized, Open-Label, Multicenter Study Evaluating Efficacy and Safety of Mosunetuzumab in Combination With Lenalidomide in Comparison to Rituximab in Combination With Lenalidomide in Patients With Follicular Lymphoma After at Least One Line of Systemic Therapy

Clinical summary

Summary

This is a randomised trial with two experimental arms. The Cycle length for treatment in this trial is: 21 days for Cycle 1; cycle length = 28 days for Cycles 2-12. Participants in Experimental Arm A will receive Mosunetuzumab (administered intravenously in a step-up dosing schedule on Days 1, 8, and 15 of Cycle 1, and on Day 1 of Cycles 2-12) in combination with Lenalidomide (administered orally once daily on Days 1-21 of Cycles 2-12). Participants in Experimental Arm B will receive Rituximab (administered intravenously on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of Cycle 1, then on Day 1 of Cycles 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11) in combination with Lenalidomide (administered orally once daily on Days 1-21 of Cycles 1-12). Tociluzumab will be administered as needed to manage cytokine release syndrome (CRS) events.

Eligibility

Inclusion

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0, 1, or 2
  • Histologically documented CD20+ FL (Grades 1-3a)
  • Requiring systemic therapy assessed by investigator based on tumor size and/or Groupe d'Etude des Lymphomes Folliculaires criteria
  • Received at least one prior systemic lymphoma therapy, which included prior immunotherapy or chemoimmunotherapy
  • Availability of a representative tumor specimen and the corresponding pathology report at the time of relapse/persistence for confirmation of the diagnosis of FL. Pretreatment sample of at least 1 core-needle, excisional or incisional tumor biopsy is required. Cytological or fine-needle aspiration samples are not acceptable. Fresh pretreatment biopsy is preferred. Patients who are unable to undergo biopsy procedures may be eligible for study enrollment if an archival tumor tissue sample (preferably from the most recent relapse/persistence) as paraffin blocks or at least 15 unstained slides, or in accordance with local regulatory requirements, can be sent to the Sponsor.
  • Adequate hematologic function (unless due to underlying lymphoma, per the investigator)
  • Agreement to comply with all local requirements of the lenalidomide risk minimization plan, which includes the global pregnancy prevention program.
  • For women of childbearing potential: Agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use 2 adequate methods of contraception, including at least 1 method with a failure rate of < 1% per year, for at least 28 days prior to Day 1 of Cycle 1, during the treatment period (including periods of treatment interruption), and for at least 28 days after the last dose of lenalidomide, 3 months after the final dose of tocilizumab (if applicable), mosunetuzumab, and 12 months after final dose of rituximab. Women must refrain from donating eggs during this same period.
  • For men: Agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use contraceptive measures and agreement to refrain from donating sperm, as defined: With female partners of childbearing potential or pregnant female partners, men must remain abstinent or use a condom during the treatment period and for at least 28 days after last dose of lenalidomide, 3 months after the final dose of tocilizumab (if applicable), mosunetuzumab and 12 months after the final dose of rituximab. Men must refrain from donating sperm during this same period.

Exclusion

  • Grade 3b FL
  • History of transformation of indolent disease to diffuse-large B cell lymphoma
  • Documented refractoriness to lenalidomide, defined as no response (partial response or complete response) or relapse within 6 months of therapy

  • Prior standard or investigational anti-cancer therapy as specified: Lenalidomide exposure within 12 months prior to Day 1 of Cycle 1; Chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy within 30 days prior to Day 1 of Cycle 1; Radioimmunoconjugate within 12 weeks prior to Day 1 of Cycle 1; Monoclonal antibody or antibody-drug conjugate within 4 weeks prior to Cycle 1 Day 1; Treatment with any anti-cancer agent (investigational or otherwise) within 4 weeks or 5 half-lives of the drug, whichever is shorter, prior to first dose of study treatment
  • Clinically significant toxicity (other than alopecia) from prior treatment that has not resolved to Grade </= 1 (per National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, Version 5.0) prior to Day 1 of Cycle 1
