This is a phase II, non-randomized, single institution study in symptomatic, previously untreated CLL patients. All patients will receive the study drug, lenalidomide, given PO daily continuously on a 28 day cycle at the starting dose level of either 2.5 mgs or 5 mgs with dose escalations to a target dose of 25mg daily. Oral dexamethasone at 12 mg PO daily will be administered on days 1-7, 14 and 21 of each cycle. Patients will be treated with lenalidomide and dexamethasone to 2 cycles past CR or to a maximum of 18 cycles. Primary endpoint is response.

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 (...
This study is for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who have not yet received any treatment for their disease. Current therapy for this disease includes the use of combinat...
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...
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 pu...
Venetoclax inhibits BCL2, an antiapoptotic protein that is pathologically overexpressed and that is central to the survival of chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. We evaluated the efficacy of venetocl...
The coexistence of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) with different gynecologic neoplasms is a rare phenomenon. Here, we report a case of simultaneously developed CLL/S...
Ibrutinib, a first-in-class Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitor taken once daily, is approved in the United States for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma and allows for...
There is limited amount of data available on the comparative efficacy of ibrutinib and idelalisib, the B-cell receptor inhibitors (BCRi) newly approved for relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leuk...
Being a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and now in the midst of infusion treatment after a 17-year remission, I cannot praise oncology nurses enough. I am overwhelmed by their professionalis...
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.
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.
A basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor that plays a critical role in HEMATOPOIESIS and as a positive regulator in the differentiation of ERYTHROID CELLS. Chromosome translocations involving the TAL-1 gene are associated with T-CELL ACUTE LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
