A Study of the Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, PCI-32765 (Ibrutinib), in Combination With Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Non-Germinal Center B-Cell Subtype of Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if ibrutinib administered in combination with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) improves the clinical outcome in newly diagnosed patients with non-germinal center B-cell subtype (GCB) of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) selected by immunohistochemistry (IHC) or newly diagnosed patients with activated B cell-like (ABC) subtype of DLBCL identified by gene expression profiling (GEP) or both populations.

   assignment; adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer or lentigo maligna without
   evidence of disease; adequately treated carcinoma in situ without evidence of disease

   - History of stroke or intracranial hemorrhage within 6 months prior to random

   - Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding

   - Any life-threatening illness, medical condition, or organ system dysfunction which, in
   the investigator's opinion, could compromise the patient's safety, interfere with the
