The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if ibrutinib can help to control lymphoma in patients who have had an autologous stem cell transplant. The safety of this drug will also be studied.
Detailed Description
Study Drug Administration:

If you take part in this study, you will take ibrutinib by mouth 1 time each day for up to 3 years. You must swallow the capsules whole with a glass (about 8 ounces) of water. Do not open, break, or chew the capsules. You should take ibrutinib at the same time every day.

If you miss a dose of ibrutinib, take it as soon as you remember on the same day. Take your next dose of ibrutinib at your regular time on the next day. Do not take 2 doses of ibrutinib on the same day to make up for a missed dose.

You will be given a study drug diary to write down what time you take each dose of ibrutinib. You need to bring the study drug diary, any leftover study drug, and any empty study drug containers with you to each visit.

The dose of ibrutinib you receive may be lowered, if the doctor thinks it is needed.

Study Visits:

One (1) time during Weeks 1-4, 6, and 8 and then 1 time each month after that for up to 3 years after your first dose of ibrutinib, blood (about 2 tablespoons) will be drawn for routine tests and to check your kidney and liver function. The blood draws may be performed at MD Anderson or at a lab closer to your home.

If the study doctor thinks it is needed, you may need to have these blood draws more often.

Around 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, then every 6 months for 3 years after your first dose of ibrutinib:

- You will have computed tomography (CT) scans to check the status of the disease. If the doctor thinks it is needed, you will also have a positron emission tomography (PET) scan.

- You will have a bone marrow biopsy/aspirate to check the status of the disease. To collect a bone marrow biopsy/aspirate, an area of the hip or other site is numbed with anesthetic, and a small amount of bone and bone marrow is withdrawn through a large needle.

Length of Study:

You may continue taking the study drug for up to 3 years. You will no longer be able to take the study drug if the disease gets worse, if intolerable side effects occur, or if you are unable to follow study directions.

Your participation on this study will be over after about 3 years.

Follow-Up Visit:

About 1 month after your last dose of study drug, blood (about 2 tablespoons) will be drawn for routine tests and to check your kidney and liver function.

You will continue to have the CT scans and blood draws described in the study visits section 1 time a year for up to 3 years.

This is an investigational study. Ibrutinib is FDA-approved and commercially available for the treatment of mantle cell lymphoma with 1 prior therapy. The use of ibrutinib to treat double hit lymphoma after an autologous stem cell transplant is considered investigational. The study doctor can explain how the study drug is designed to work.

Up to 30 participants will be enrolled in this study. All will take part at MD Anderson.
