A Phase 2, Open-label, Multicenter study to Evaluate the Safety and Clinical Activity of Durvalumab in Combination with Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincrestine, Prednisone (R-CHOP) or with Lenalidomide plus R CHOP (R2 CHOP) in Subjects with Previously Untreated, High Risk Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma

This Phase 2, two-arm, open-label study is designed to evaluate the safety, clinical activity, predictive biomarkers and pharmacokinetics/ pharmacodynamics of durvalumab in combination with R-CHOP (Arm A) or R2-CHOP (Arm B), followed by durvalumab consolidation therapy in previously untreated subjects with high-risk DLBCL.

Patients with non-ABC subtype (determined by gene expression profiling) will be allocated to Arm A while patients with ABC (activated B-cell type) subtype will be allocated to Arm B. Approximately 120 patients may be enrolled and assigned into the appropriate treatment arms dependent upon their cell of origin status.

Induction treatment with R-CHOP (± Lenalidomide) will last for a total of up to 6 to 8 treatment cycles (21 days cycle), and the total time on study treatment, including durvalumab consolidation, will last up to 12 months.
