Update: this study is closed to enrollment.
Bruton tyrosine kinase (Btk) is an enzyme that plays a crucial role in the development of the normal immune system. Recent studies indicate that Btk may also play a role in many B-cell lymphomas.
PCI-32765 is an investigational drug that irreversibly inhibits Btk. A phase 1 trials performed at several sites, including Weill Cornell Medical Center, demonstrated that PCI-32765 was well tolerated with minimal side effects.
In this phase 2 study, we are evaluating the efficacy of PCI-32765 (four pills take once daily) in patients with previously treated mantle cell lymphoma. We hope to learn how well PCI-32765 works and more about its side-effect profile.
