To characterize safety, tolerability and to establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of Tenalisib in combination with Romidepsin in patients with R/R T-cell lymphoma.

Official Title

An Open Label, Phase I/II Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Tenalisib (RP6530), a Novel PI3K δ/γ Dual Inhibitor Given in Combination With a Histone Deacetylase (HDAC) Inhibitor, Romidepsin in Adult Patients With Relapsed/Refractory T-cell Lymphoma


T Cell Lymphoma RP6530 Tenalisib Romidepsin Lymphoma Lymphoma, T-Cell Tenalisib+Romidepsin

  1. Patient receiving anticancer therapy including any investigational therapy ≤3 weeks or 5 half-lives (whichever is shorter) prior to C1D1.
  2. Patient who discontinued prior therapy with PI3K inhibitors or HDAC inhibitors due to drug toxicity.
  3. PTCL patients with Allo-SCT on active GVHD or immunosuppression therapy within 3 months prior to C1D1. CTCL patients with the history of Allo-SCT will be excluded.

  8. Known seropositive requiring anti-viral therapy for hepatitis c virus (HCV) infection OR patients with positive hepatitis C virus Ab.
  9. Subjects with active EBV unrelated to underlying lymphoma (positive serology for anti-EBV VCA IgM antibody and negative for anti-EBV EBNA IgG antibody, or clinical manifestations and positive EBV PCR consistent with active EBV infection.
  10. . Subject with active CMV (positive serology for anti-CMV IgM antibody and negative for anti-CMV IgG antibody and positive CMV PCR with clinical manifestations consistent with active CMV infection) and requiring therapy.
  11. . Uncontrolled or significant cardiovascular disease including, but not limited to:
  12. Congenital long QT syndrome.

Lead Scientist at UCSF

  • Weiyun Ai
    I am a medical oncologist specializing in hematologic malignancy, with a particular emphasis on Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and skin lymphomas. I have conducted numerous clinical trials in each of these areas. My laboratory research focuses on developing patient-derived murine models for T cell lymphomas, as well as conducting pre-clinical studies of novel agents.
