This clinical trial was done to study a new medicine (fenebrutinib) for the treatment of patients with blood cancer. This was a phase 1, dose-escalation study to find out which dose of fenebrutinib was safe and tolerable for people with B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (B-NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL). Twenty-four people with B-NHL or B-CLL – that had come back (relapsed) or did not respond to medicine (refractory) – where the disease had gotten worse (progressed) even after getting available medicines – and for which no other effective medicine was available – took part in this study. The study took place at nine study centers in two countries – USA and Australia.
An Open-Label, Phase I, Dose-Escalation Study Evaluating The Safety And Tolerability Of Gdc-0853 In Patients With Relapsed Or Refractory B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma And Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Age >/= 18 years
- ECOG score of 0-1
- One of the following histologically-documented hematologic malignancies for which no effective standard therapy exists: indolent non Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), follicular lymphoma (FL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), or chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)
- At least one site of disease that, as seen on CT scan, is > 1.5 cm in the greatest transverse diameter or > 1.0 cm in short axis diameter (except for patients with CLL)
- An available tumor specimen
- Adequate hematologic and organ function
- For female patients of childbearing potential and male patients with partners of childbearing potential, use of effective contraceptive(s) as defined by protocol for the duration of the study
- Life expectancy < 12 weeks
- < 3 weeks since the last anti-tumor therapy, including chemotherapy, biologic, experimental, hormonal or radiotherapy (with the exception of leuprolide or similar medications for prostate cancer)

- Primary CNS malignancy or untreated/active CNS metastases (progressing or requiring anticonvulsants or corticosteroids for symptomatic control)
- History of other malignancy within 5 years prior to screening, except for appropriately treated carcinoma in situ of the cervix, non-melanoma skin cancer, Stage I uterine cancer, or other cancers with a similar outcome
- Cardiovascular dysfunction, including ventricular dysrhythmias or risk factors for ventricular dysrhythmias
- Pregnancy, or lactation
- Any other diseases that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may affect the interpretation of the results or render the patient at high risk from treatment complications
