LENA-LMA-5:Lenalidomide in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

This study has been terminated.

PETHEMA Foundation Identifier:
First received: July 29, 2010
Last updated: April 4, 2014
Last verified: April 2014

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of post-induction lenalidomide in patients with de novo AML with deletion 5q cytogenetic abnormality (del (5q)) or monosomy 5 (-5), who obtained complete remission after conventional induction chemotherapy. So, too, for those who no obtained response treatment (total resistance) or partial remission.

At the same time, the study evaluate the security of lenalidomide.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effectivity: Duration of response with lenalidomide after conventional induction chemotherapy [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Evaluate the effectiveness of post-induction lenalidomide in patients with de novo AML with deletion 5q cytogenetic abnormality (del (5q)) or monosomy 5 (-5), who obtained complete remission after conventional induction chemotherapy. So, too, for those who no obtained reponse treatment (total resistance) or partial remission.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability: Type and intensity of adverse events related with lenalidomide [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Type and intensity of adverse events related with lenalidomide

Enrollment: 4
Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: February 2013
Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lenalidomine
Post-induction lenalidomide in patients with de novo AML with deletion 5q cytogenetic abnormality (del (5q)) or monosomy 5 (-5)
Drug: Lenalidomide

Initial dose of oral lenalidomide is 10 mg/day for 28 days every 28 days, during 6 months.

In case of response on day 169, patient will follow a treatment extension phase. The dose of lenalidomide should be the same as the last dose for initial phase, until 24 months or progression disease
