This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of lenalidomide and how well it works in treating older patients with acute myeloid leukemia who have undergone stem cell transplant. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing.

Further study details as provided by Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Relapse free survival rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The observed relapse free survival rate will be calculated along with its 95% confidence interval. A one sample test on proportion will be used to detect if the relapse free survival rate with lenalidomide is significantly higher than that without the treatment (relapse rate is expected to be > 95%).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: From transplant until death of any cause, assessed up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Kaplan-Meier analysis will be conducted.

Estimated Enrollment: 48
Study Start Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment (lenalidomide)
Patients receive lenalidomide PO QD on days 1-21. Courses repeat 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: lenalidomide
Given PO

Detailed Description:


I. To determine the safety and efficacy of maintenance lenalidomide post autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) for elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).


I. To define maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and establish therapeutic dose level (TDL) of lenalidomide given post autologous transplant for AML.

II. To determine the progression free survival for patients treated with this approach.

III. To determine the overall survival for patients treated with this approach. IV. To determine the role of residual AML stem cells on efficacy of lenalidomide maintenance after autologous PBSCT.

OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study followed by a phase II study.

Patients receive lenalidomide orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-21. Courses repeat 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days and then every 6 months thereafter.
