  Purpose

The treatments used to treat lymphoma and multiple myeloma sometimes do not always work well or they may only work for a short period of time. This is why new treatments are being tested.

This study will test a new combination of two drugs that are already approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treatment of certain kinds of blood cancers. These drugs are romidepsin and lenalidomide. Both these drugs by themselves have been used to treat lymphoma or multiple myeloma. However, while these drugs are routinely used alone, this is the first time they will be tested together. The mechanism of action of both drugs is not well understood but both have been shown to to be effective by themselves in lymphoma and multiple myeloma.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • define the maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The phase Ib portion of the study is designed to determine the MTD of romidepsin and lenalidomide.

  • safety and toxicity [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Subjects will be evaluated for AEs at each visit with the NCI CTCAE v4.0 used as a guide for the grading of severity.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • assess the overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall response rate (ORR), complete response rate, very good partial response/partial response rate will be summarized using proportions and confidence intervals will be provided.

  • to assess the complete response (CR) [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall response rate (ORR), complete response rate, very good partial response/partial response rate will be summarized using proportions and confidence intervals will be provided.

  • assess the time to response (TTR) [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    duration of response (DOR), and event free survival (EFS). Time to response, duration of response and event free survival will be analyzed by routine survival analysis tools such as Kaplan-Meier estimation or competing risks method.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Romidepsin and Lenalidomide
This will be a multicentered, open label, phase Ib/IIa trial of romidepsin and lenalidomide in patients with relapsed or refractory lymphomas or multiple myeloma. Lenalidomide will be provided in accordance with the Celgene Corporation's Revlimid REMS® program. Per standard Revlimid REMS® program requirements, all physicians who prescribe lenalidomide for research subjects enrolled into this trial, and all research subjects enrolled into this trial, must be registered in, and must comply with, all requirements of the Revlimid REMS® program.
Drug: Romidepsin
Romidepsin will be administered intravenously on days 1, 8, and 15 of a 28-day cycle.
Drug: Lenalidomide
Lenalidomide will be taken orally daily for 21 days of a 28-day cycle.

  • Phase Ib subjects must have calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 50ml/min by Cockcroft-Gault formula.
  • Phase IIa subjects must have calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 30ml/min by Cockcroft-Gault formula. See section below, "Dosing Regimen", regarding lenalidomide dose adjustment for calculated creatinine clearance < 60ml/min and ≥ 30ml/min.
