Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This pilot study will assess if tumour somatic mutations identified in marginal zone lymphoma patients treated with zanubrutinib (a BTK inhibitor) are predictive of resistance to BTK inhibition and clinical relapse.
Participants will be asked to donate duplicate buccal swabs once at baseline and 30ml of blood in addition to the blood draws already performed as part of the BeiGene BGB-3111-214 clinical trial once a month (up to 9 time points) during treatment and once at time of progression if/when it occurs.
Participants are expected to be observed until disease progression or 2 years after end of treatment, whichever comes first. Treatment period is 2 years.

Control group

Primary outcome [1] 308231 0
Somatic tumour mutations will be identified using cfDNA (cell free DNA) obtained from participants' plasma at baseline, at the end of specific treatment cycles (treatment cycles according to the BeiGene BGB-3111-214 clinical trial), and at progression. Presence of mutations will be correlated with clinical outcomes of the BGB-3111-214 provided by BeiGene.
Timepoint [1] 308231 0
End of treatment cycle 1,2-6,, 9, 12, 15 and at progression according to BGB-3111-214. Each treatment cycle is 28 days.
Secondary outcome [1] 354317 0
The secondary endpoint is to evaluate prediction of clinical relapse by detection of emergent resistance mutations in plasma.
Timepoint [1] 354317 0
At relapse

Key inclusion criteria

7. Unable to swallow capsules or disease significantly affecting gastrointestinal function such as malabsorption syndrome, resection of the stomach or small bowel, bariatric surgery procedures, symptomatic inflammatory bowel disease, or partial or complete bowel obstruction.
8. Active fungal, bacterial and/or viral infection requiring systemic therapy.
9. Known central nervous system involvement by lymphoma.
10. Underlying medical conditions that, in the investigator’s opinion, will render the administration of study drug hazardous or obscure the interpretation of toxicity or AEs.
11. Known infection with HIV, or serologic status reflecting active viral hepatitis B (HBV) or viral hepatitis C (HCV) infection.
12. Major surgery within 4 weeks of the first dose of study drug.
13. Prior treatment with a Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor.
14. Last dose of prior therapy for MZL less than or equal to 21 days prior to first dose of study drug, with the following additional exclusion requirements:
a. Treatment with monoclonal antibody-based therapy within 28 days
of first dose of study drug.
b. Treatment with chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy within 180
days of first dose of study drug.
c. Treatment with any herbal medicine with anti-neoplastic intent
within 28 days of first dose of study drug.
d. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation within 12
months of first dose of study drug.
15. Any chemotherapy or radiation treatment for non-MZL indications within 21 days of first dose of study drug.
16. Toxicity from prior anti-cancer therapy that has not recovered to less tha or equal to Grade 1 (except for alopecia, ANC, and platelet count; for ANC and platelet count, see Inclusion criterion 9).
17. Pregnant or lactating women.
18. Vaccination with a live vaccine within 35 days prior to the first dose of study drug.

Brief summary
This study aims to implement and develop the identification of tumour mutations present at baseline in patients with marginal zone lymphoma and determine whether certain mutations can predict patients’ clinical outcome and survival.

Whom is it for?
You may be eligible to join if you are 18 years old or over and enrolled in the BeiGene BGB-3111-214 trial at one of the Australian sites as well as the Australasian and Leukaemia Group National Blood Cancer registry (ALLG NBCR).

Study details
All participants who consent to take part in this study will be asked to donate duplicate buccal swabs at baseline and 30ml of blood in addition to the blood draws already performed as part of the BeiGene BGB-3111-214 clinical trial. Additional lymph node and bone marrow biopsies may be required in some cases.

It is hoped that this pilot study will contribute to the identification of tumour mutations that may affect patients' responses to treatment and therefore broaden our knowledge of the mechanisms underpinning resistance to treatment.
