Trial of Bendamustine, Lenalidomide and Rituximab in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL)
This study is for subjects with a B-cell lymphoid malignancy (lymphoma) or chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) that has come back after or did not get better with previous treatment. The purpose of this study is to find out the highest dose of lenalidomide that can be given together with bendamustine and rituximab. The study will also look what effects the combination of lenalidomide and bendamustine and the combination of lenalidomide, bendamustine and rituximab will have on patients and their disease.
This is a Phase I, open-label, dose-escalation study of bendamustine and lenalidomide (BL) and also bendamustine,lenalidomide, and rituximab (BLR) in relapsed/refractory CLL and relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphomas. Phase I dose escalation will be done independently for the CLL and NHL groups. In addition, the study will be conducted in 2 parts. In part I of the study, the maximum tolerated dose of bendamustine and lenalidomide will be determined independently for the CLL and NHL groups. In part II of the study, CLL and NHL subjects will be enrolled at the MTD of BL determined in Part I for CLL and NHL and all subjects will receive rituximab. Part II of the study will determine the MTD of BLT independently for the NHL and CLL groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Leukemia, Lymphocytic, Chronic, B-cell
A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
A chronic leukemia characterized by a large number of circulating prolymphocytes. It can arise spontaneously or as a consequence of transformation of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
Leukemia, Prolymphocytic, T-cell
A lymphoid leukemia characterized by a profound LYMPHOCYTOSIS with or without LYMPHADENOPATHY, hepatosplenomegaly, frequently rapid progression, and short survival. It was formerly called T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
A pathologic change in leukemia in which leukemic cells permeate various organs at any stage of the disease. All types of leukemia show various degrees of infiltration, depending upon the type of leukemia. The degree of infiltration may vary from site to site. The liver and spleen are common sites of infiltration, the greatest appearing in myelocytic leukemia, but infiltration is seen also in the granulocytic and lymphocytic types. The kidney is also a common site and of the gastrointestinal system, the stomach and ileum are commonly involved. In lymphocytic leukemia the skin is often infiltrated. The central nervous system too is a common site.
Inflammatory diseases of the THYROID GLAND. Thyroiditis can be classified into acute (THYROIDITIS, SUPPURATIVE), subacute (granulomatous and lymphocytic), chronic fibrous (Riedel's), chronic lymphocytic (HASHIMOTO DISEASE), transient (POSTPARTUM THYROIDITIS), and other AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS subtypes.

The purpose of this research is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the drugs lenalidomide and ofatumumab in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the combination of lenalidomide and rituximab can help to control chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (...
RATIONALE: Lenalidomide may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking blood flow to the cancer . PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well lenalidomide works in treating patient...
Retreatment with bendamustine-containing regimens in patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia and indolent B-cell lymphomas achieves high response rates and some long lasting remissions.
Bendamustine and bendamustine/rituximab combinations have shown high efficacy in relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and indolent B-cell malignancies (non-Hodgkin lymphoma, NHL). No...
Abstract Bendamustine and cytosine arabinoside (ara-c) are commonly used cytotoxic agents with unique mechanisms of action. We have previously reported a striking additive cytotoxic effect of the cons...
Bendamustine demonstrated clinical activity in pre-treated hematological malignancies due to its unique mechanism of action distinct from standard alkylating agents. This study assessed its efficacy i...
Introduction: Lenalidomide , a thalidomide analog, is representative of a new class of antineoplastic drugs which has been especially effective in certain hematologic malignancies such as myeloma and...
Introduction: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) often has an extended disease course. With a median age at diagnosis of 72 years, newer treatment options with less toxicity than standard nucleoside a...
