Purpose

The purpose of this study is to confirm that the pharmacokinetics of ibrutinib in pediatric participants is consistent with that in adults (part 1) and to assess efficacy (event-free survival [EFS]) of ibrutinib in combination with rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide (RICE) or rituximab, vincristine, ifosfamide, carboplatin, and idarubicin (RVICI) background therapy compared to RICE or RVICI background therapy alone (part 2).

Experimental
Part 1: Ibrutinib
The first 2 participants enrolled in each age group (1-5 years, 6-11 years and 12-17 years) will receive starting dose of Ibrutinib 240 milligram per square meter (mg/m^2) for the first cycle, followed by dose escalation at the start of Cycle 2 as long as all pharmacokinetic assessments are within the expected range and there are no safety concerns. For participants being treated at 240 mg/m^2 dose level during the first cycle, the maximum dose should not exceed a total of 420 mg/day. All participants will receive rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin, etoposide and dexamethasone (RICE) or ituximab, vincristine, ifosfamide, carboplatin, idarubicin and dexamethasone (RVICI) background therapy (investigator's choice), during treatment phase. Participants with PR or better only will receive Ibrutinib for 3 cycles or until PD, unacceptable toxicity or until initiating antilymphoma therapy or a conditioning regimen for stem cell transplantation during post-treatment phase.
  • Drug: Ibrutinib
    Participants will receive Ibrutinib (dose 240 mg/m^2 /329 mg/m^2 per day) during part 1 and part 2.
  • Drug: Rituximab
    Participants will receive a cumulative dose of rituximab 750 mg/m^2 as a part of RICE/RVICI regimen in part 1 and part 2 per cycle.
  • Drug: Ifosfamide
    Participants will receive a cumulative dose of Ifosfamide 9 g/m^2 and 10 g/m^2 as a part of RICE and RVICI regimen respectively in part 1 and part 2 per cycle.

  • Drug: Etoposide
    Participants will receive a cumulative dose of etoposide 300 mg/m^2 in part 1 and part 2 as a part of RICE regimen per cycle.

Detailed Description

This is a Phase 3, randomized (study medication assigned to participants by chance), open-label (identity of study drug will be known to participant and study staff), controlled study which consists of two parts: Part 1 and Part 2. The Part 1 is a pharmacokinetic run-in part, which will be conducted before starting the randomized part (Part 2) of the study and Part 2 is a randomized and open-label study. Part 1 and Part 2 of the study will be conducted in 3 phases: a Pretreatment (Screening) Phase (Up to 14 days before administration of study drug), a Treatment Phase, and a Posttreatment Phase. The Treatment Phase will extend from enrollment (in Part 1) or randomization (in Part 2) until 1 of the following: 1) completion of 3 cycles of therapy, 2) transplantation, if clinically indicated, or 3) progressive disease (PD), whichever comes first. The Posttreatment Phase will continue until death, loss to follow up, consent withdrawal, or study end, whichever occurs first. The end of study is defined as when approximately 60 event-free survival (EFS) events have occurred in Part 2 (death, disease progression, or lack of complete response [CR] or partial response [PR] after 3 cycles of treatment based on blinded independent event review), or the sponsor terminates the study, whichever comes first. Participants in Part 1 will be 1 to less than (<) 18 years old. Participants in Part 2 will be 1 to 30 years old. Participants will be primarily evaluated for pharmacokinetics in part 1 and efficacy (EFS) of ibrutinib in combination with RICE or RVICI background therapy compared to RICE or RVICI background therapy alone in part 2. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.
