Patients with peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL) in the relapsed or refractory (r/r) setting have only a limited number of therapies available, and the prognosis is extremely poor. SHR2554 is an oral inhibitor against EZH2, a rational therapeutic target for lymphomas.

Patients and Methods:

This was a multicenter, two-part, phase I study of SHR2554 in r/r mature lymphoid neoplasms. In part I, 350 mg twice daily was established as the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) based on the findings during dose escalation and expansion; subsequently, selected lymphoma subtypes were recruited in clinical expansion cohorts to receive SHR2554 at RP2D. Here, we provide an in-depth assessment of SHR2554 at RP2D in subpopulation with r/r PTCL.


Twenty-eight patients were included for analysis (17 angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma and 11 not otherwise specified). Eighteen (64%) patients had received ≥2 lines of previous anticancer therapies. The objective response rate was 61% [95% confidence interval (CI), 41–78]. Responses were still ongoing in 59% (10/17) of the responders; estimated median duration of response was 12.3 months (95% CI, 7.4–not reached). Median progression-free survival was 11.1 months (95% CI, 5.3–22.0), and 12-month overall survival rate was 92% (95% CI, 72–98). The most common grade 3 or 4 treatment-related adverse events were decreased platelet count [nine (32%)] as well as decreased white blood cell count, decreased neutrophil count, and anemia [four (14%) for each]. No treatment-related deaths were reported.


This extended follow-up analysis further supports SHR2554 as a therapeutic opportunity for patients with r/r PTCL.
