  Purpose

This phase II trial studies how well anti-cluster of differentiation (CD)19 monoclonal antibody MOR00208 and lenalidomide work in treating patients with relapsed, refractory, or previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia, small lymphocytic lymphoma, or prolymphocytic leukemia. Monoclonal antibodies, such as anti-CD19 monoclonal antibody MOR00208, 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. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Giving anti-CD19 monoclonal antibody MOR00208 and lenalidomide may kill more cancer cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients who achieve a response (i.e. CR, complete response with incomplete recovery [CRi], nPR, or PR), as defined according to the IWCLL 2008 criteria [ Time Frame: up to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Within each cohort, the proportion of patients who achieve an overall response will be estimated by the sum of the number of complete responses, complete responses with incomplete recovery, nodular partial responses, and partial responses divided by the total number of evaluable patients. Ninety percent exact binomial confidence intervals for the true overall response rate will be calculated for those patients included to evaluate the decision criteria.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • ORR [ Time Frame: At 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ORR with 90% exact binomial confidence intervals will be calculated. The degree of response for evaluable patients will also be summarized. In addition, the number of patients who achieve CR but remain positive for MRD will be documented.

  • PFS [ Time Frame: From the date of registration to date of relapse or death, assessed up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PFS will be summarized with simple descriptive statistics obtained using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  • Time to next treatment [ Time Frame: From date of registration until date of next treatment or death, censoring those alive who have not started another treatment at last follow-up, assessed up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to next treatment will be summarized with simple descriptive statistics obtained using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  • OS [ Time Frame: From date of registration until date of death or last follow-up, assessed up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    OS will be summarized with simple descriptive statistics obtained using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  • Results of FISH [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Relationships between FISH variables and ORR or PFS will be explored graphically (e.g. side-by-side boxplots or Kaplan-Meier plots), where estimates with confidence intervals will be presented as the primary method of analysis due to the limited number of patients.

  • Results of stimulated karyotype [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Relationships between stimulated karyotype variables and ORR or PFS will be explored graphically (e.g. side-by-side boxplots or Kaplan-Meier plots), where estimates with confidence intervals will be presented as the primary method of analysis due to the limited number of patients.

  • Zap-70 methylation [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Relationships between Zap-70 variables and ORR or PFS will be explored graphically (e.g. side-by-side boxplots or Kaplan-Meier plots), where estimates with confidence intervals will be presented as the primary method of analysis due to the limited number of patients.

  • IgVH mutational status [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Relationships between IgVH variables and ORR or PFS will be explored graphically (e.g. side-by-side boxplots or Kaplan-Meier plots), where estimates with confidence intervals will be presented as the primary method of analysis due to the limited number of patients.

  • Effects of combined therapy with MOR00208 and lenalidomide on CD4+ T cells using flow cytometry during the course of protocol therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patterns will be explored graphically using box plots and/or individual time plots as well as analytically with either repeated measures analysis of variance or Friedman's nonparametric test, recognizing the inherent limitations due to sample size.

  • Effects of combined therapy with MOR00208 and lenalidomide on CD8+ T cells during the course of protocol therapy by flow cytometry [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patterns will be explored graphically using box plots and/or individual time plots as well as analytically with either repeated measures analysis of variance or Friedman's nonparametric test, recognizing the inherent limitations due to sample size.

  • Effects of combined therapy with MOR00208 and lenalidomide on NK cells during the course of protocol therapy by flow cytometry [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patterns will be explored graphically using box plots and/or individual time plots as well as analytically with either repeated measures analysis of variance or Friedman's nonparametric test, recognizing the inherent limitations due to sample size.

  • Changes in IL-21R expression [ Time Frame: Baseline to up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes in expression of select genes associated with B-cell activation [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of adverse events as graded per the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The maximum grade for each type of toxicity will be recorded for each patient, and frequency tables will be reviewed for each cohort to determine toxicity patterns. The incidence of severe (grade 3+) adverse events or toxicities will be described.

  • Tolerability assessed by the number of patients who require dose modifications and/or dose delays [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the overall response rate (ORR) at 6 months for patients with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL)/prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL) treated with the combination of MOR00208 plus lenalidomide.

II. To determine the overall response rate (ORR) at 6 months for patients with treatment-naive CLL/SLL/PLL treated with the combination of MOR00208 plus lenalidomide.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the overall response rate (ORR) at 12 months for patients with untreated CLL/SLL/PLL or relapsed/refractory disease treated with the combination of MOR00208 plus lenalidomide.

II. To determine the complete response (CR) rate, nodular partial response (nPR) rate, partial response (PR) rate, and stable disease (SD) rate for patients with untreated CLL/SLL/PLL or relapsed or refractory disease treated with the combination of MOR00208 plus lenalidomide.

III. To summarize the progression free survival (PFS), time to next treatment, and overall survival (OS) for each of two cohorts of patients treated with this regimen.

IV. To evaluate toxicity with this regimen, including frequency and severity of toxicities, dose reduction requirements, and adverse events requiring drug discontinuation.

V. To perform baseline analysis of patients enrolled on this trial including fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), stimulated karyotype, zeta-chain-associated protein kinase 70 (Zap-70) methylation, and immunoglobulin variable region heavy chain (IgVH) mutational status and describe relationships between these biomarkers and ORR or PFS for each of two cohorts with this regimen.

VI. To determine the effect of this regimen on total immunoglobulins, CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, natural killer (NK) cells, and interleukin-21 receptor (IL-21R) expression on CLL cells.

VII. To determine whether NK cells and T cells are activated in response to MOR00208 alone or in combination with lenalidomide.

VIII. To estimate the rate of minimal residual disease (MRD) in patients achieving CR, and whether this correlates with PFS.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive anti-CD19 monoclonal antibody MOR00208 intravenously (IV) over 2 hours on day 1 (days 1, 2, 8, 15, and 22 of course 1) and lenalidomide orally (PO) daily on days 1-28 (days 9-28 of course 1). Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
