This is a study for participants with a type of blood cancer called mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). The main purpose is to compare pirtobrutinib (LOXO-305) to other drugs that work in a similar way that have already been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA). Participation could last up to two years, and possibly longer, if the disease does not progress.

Official Title

A Phase 3 Open-Label, Randomized Study of LOXO-305 Versus Investigator Choice of BTK Inhibitor in Patients With Previously Treated BTK Inhibitor Naïve Mantle Cell Lymphoma (BRUIN MCL-321)


This is a Phase 3 global, randomized, open-label study comparing pirtobrutinib (Arm A) to investigator's choice of ibrutinib, acalabrutinib or zanubrutinib (Arm B) in MCL patients who have received 1 or more lines of therapy and are BTK inhibitor naïve.
