The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of lenalidomide as a first line therapy in treating patients with B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. This study will compare the effects (good and bad) of lenalidomide with chlorambucil.
B-Cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-CLL)
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Phase 3, Multicenter, Randomized, Open-Label, Parallel-Group Study Of The Efficacy & Safety Of Lenalidomide (Revlimid®) Vs. Chlorambucil As First-Line Therapy For Previously Untreated Elderly Patients With B-Cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Every 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Safety [type, frequency, and severity of adverse events (AEs)] [ Time Frame: Every 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Response, including evaluation of minimal residual disease (MRD) by flow cytometry (Hallek, 2008) [ Time Frame: Every 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Duration of response [ Time Frame: Every 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Time to response [ Time Frame: Every 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Three times a year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQL) by Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy -Leukemia (FACT-Leu) and EQ-5D [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Experimental: 1 - Lenalidomide
1 - Lenalidomide
For patients with normal renal function (defined as CrCl ≥ 60 mL/min), 5 mg once daily on Days 1 through 28 of the first 28-day cycle, 10 mg once daily on Days 1 through 28 starting at the second cycle, 15 mg once daily starting at the third cycle and for the remainder of the study until PD or unacceptable toxicity, whichever occurs first.
For patients with moderate renal impairment (defined as CrCl ≥ 30 to < 60 mL/min), 2.5 mg once daily on Days 1 through 28 of the first 28-day cycle, 5 mg once daily on Days 1 through 28 starting at the second cycle, 7.5 mg once daily starting at the third cycle and for the remainder of the study until PD or unacceptable toxicity, whichever occurs first.
Other Name: Revlimid
Active Comparator: 2- Chlorambucil
Patients assigned to the chlorambucil arm will receive oral chlorambucil tablets at 0.8 mg/kg on Days 1 and 15 of each 28-day cycle for a total duration of 12 months (approximately 13 cycles).
Other Name: Leukeran
After notification from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on 12 July 2013, Celgene agreed to discontinue the lenalidomide treatment for all patients due to an imbalance in the number of deaths in patients treated with lenalidomide versus patients treated with chlorambucil. No specific causality for this imbalance has been identified to date. Investigators were instructed to immediately discontinue all participants from experimental lenalidomide treatment and inform their patients accordingly. Participants on the Chlorambucil arm may continue up to 12 months (13 cycles) with the last participant completing in March 2014. All randomized participants will continue to be followed for overall survival and secondary primary malignancies.
