Oncology Pipeline

For more than 50 years, Lilly has been dedicated to delivering life-changing medicines and support to people living with cancer and those who care for them. Lilly is determined to build on this heritage and continue making life better for all those affected by cancer around the world. In 2019 Lilly created Loxo Oncology at Lilly, with the goal of rapidly delivering impactful new medicines for people with cancer. Our approach centers on creating new medicines that work in early clinical development and will matter to patients.

BTK Inhibitor

A Phase 3 Open-Label, Randomized Study of Pirtobrutinib (LOXO-305) Versus Investigator's Choice of Idelalisib Plus Rituximab or Bendamustine Plus Rituximab in BTK Inhibitor Pretreated Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia/Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma*

  • Platelets ≥50 × 109/L not requiring transfusion support or growth factors within 14 days of cycle 1 day 1. If the investigator has chosen rituximab + bendamustine as the arm B treatment, platelets must be ≥75 × 109/L
  • AST and ALT ≤3.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN); total bilirubin ≤1.5 x ULN
  • Estimated creatinine clearance of ≥30 mL/min; ≥40 mL/min if the investigator has chosen bendamustine/rituximab as the arm B treatment

  • Prior exposure to a noncovalent (reversible) BTK inhibitor
  • Patients requiring therapeutic anticoagulation with warfarin or another vitamin K antagonist
  • Current treatment with strong cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inhibitors or inducers and/or strong P-gp inhibitors
  • Vaccination with a live vaccine within 28 days prior to randomization
  • Patients who experienced a major bleeding event on a prior BTK inhibitor
  • Patients with the following hypersensitivity:
    • Known hypersensitivity, including anaphylaxis, to any component or excipient of pirtobrutinib, idelalisib, and bendamustine
    • Prior significant hypersensitivity to rituximab
This clinical trial is being conducted globally.
Pirtobrutinib is administered 200 mg PO QD until progression or unacceptable toxicity. 
Idelalisib is administered 150 mg PO BID. 
Rituximab is administered intravenously (IV) as 8 total infusions.
