  • Specialties: Cancer, Lymphoma, Oncology
  • Type of Study: Drug

This is a phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial designed to compare the efficacy and safety of the humanized monoclonal anti CD19 antibody tafasitamab plus lenalidomide in addition to R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) versus R-CHOP in previously untreated, high-intermediate and high-risk patients with newly-diagnosed DLBCL. Efficacy will be determined by progression free survival as assessed by the investigator using the lugano response criteria for malignant lymphoma. There will be an experimental arm where Patients will receive tafasitamab plus lenalidomide in addition to R-CHOP for six 21-day cycles, and a placebo arm where Patients will receive tafasitamab placebo plus lenalidomide placebo in addition to R-CHOP for six 21-day cycles.
