A Study of Ibrutinib in Combination With Rituximab, in Japanese Participants With Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM)
Phase 2 Study of Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) Inhibitor, Ibrutinib (PCI-32765) in Combination With Rituximab, in Japanese Patients With Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate overall response rate (ORR) by Independent Review Committee (IRC) assessment, when combined with rituximab in Japanese participants with treatment naïve or relapsed/refractory Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (WM).
Overall Response Rate (ORR) According to the Modified Sixth International Workshop on Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia (IWWM) Criteria
Progression Free Survival (PFS)
Study Arms / Comparison Groups
Ibrutinib + Rituximab
Description: Participants will receive ibrutinib 420 milligram (mg) orally, once daily, from Day 1 of Week 1 until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity in combination with rituximab 375 milligram per square meter (mg/m^2) intravenously (IV) on Day 1 of Weeks 1 to 4 and Weeks 17 to 20.

Participants must be willing and able to adhere to the prohibitions and restrictions specified in this protocol - Must be willing and able to adhere to the lifestyle restrictions specified in this protocol Exclusion Criteria: - Involvement of the central nervous system by WM - Prior exposure to ibrutinib or other Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) inhibitors - Rituximab treatment within the last 12 months before the first dose of study intervention - Received any WM-related therapy <=30 days prior to first administration of study treatment - Plasmapheresis less than (<) 35 days prior to the initiation of study drug, except when at least one serum IgM central assessment was performed during the screening period and was >35 days from the most recent plasmapheresis procedure - History of other malignancies - Vaccinated with live, attenuated vaccines within 4 weeks of first dose of study drug - Infection requiring systemic treatment that was completed <=14 days before the first dose of study drug - Currently active, clinically significant Child-Pugh Class B or C hepatic impairment - Inability or difficulty swallowing capsules, malabsorption syndrome, or any disease or medical condition significantly affecting gastrointestinal function - Stroke or intracranial hemorrhage within 12 months prior to enrollment - Currently active, clinically significant cardiovascular disease - Requires treatment with a strong cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A inhibitor - Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or active infection with hepatitis B or hepatitis C virus - Major surgery within 4 weeks of first dose of study drug - Lactating or pregnant - Male participants who plan to father a child while enrolled in this study or within 3 months after the last dose of ibrutinib, and within 12 months after last dose of rituximab - Any contraindication to ibrutinib or rituximab including hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients of ibrutinib or rituximab per local prescribing information - Received an investigational intervention (including investigational vaccines) or used an invasive investigational medical device within 4 weeks before the planned first dose of study intervention or is currently enrolled in an investigational study - Any condition for which, in the opinion of the investigator, participation would not be in the best interest of the participant (eg [for example], compromise the wellbeing) or that could prevent, limit, or confound the protocol-specified assessments - Employee of the investigator or study site, with direct involvement in the proposed study or other studies under the direction of that investigator or study site, as well as family members of the employees or the investigator
