SCCA Lymphoma Clinical Trials

Lenalidomide w/wo Rituximab for NHL or CLL Patients Previously Treated With Donor Stem Cell Transplant (FH 2467)
A Phase II Study Investigating Treatment of Post-Allogeneic Transplant Progression or Relapse of CLL or NHL with Lenalidomide alone or with Rituximab
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia
Phase II FH 2467

This phase II trial studies how well giving lenalidomide with or without rituximab works in treating patients with progressive or relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL), or non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Giving lenalidomide together with or without rituximab may kill more cancer cells

Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)
  • Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the patient from signing the informed consent form
  • Pregnant or breast feeding females; (lactating females must agree not to breast feed while taking lenalidomide)
  • Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study or confounds the ability to interpret data from the study
  • Known hypersensitivity to thalidomide
  • The development of erythema nodosum if characterized by a desquamating rash while taking thalidomide or similar drugs
