A Study of Brentuximab Vedotin and CHP in Frontline Treatment of PTCL With Less Than 10% CD30 Expression

This clinical trial will study brentuximab vedotin with CHP to find out if the drugs work for people who have certain types of peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). It will also find out what side effects occur when brentuximab vedotin and CHP are used together. A side effect is anything the drugs do besides treating cancer. CHP is a type of chemotherapy that uses three drugs (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and prednisone). CHP is approved by the FDA to treat certain types of PTCL.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.

   previous treatment with complete cumulative dose of >300 mg/m2 of doxorubicin.

   - Any uncontrolled Grade 3 or higher (per the National Cancer Institute's Common
   Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, NCI CTCAE Version 4.03) viral, bacterial, or
   fungal infection within 2 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug. Routine
   antimicrobial prophylaxis is permitted.
