Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bendamustine hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. It is not yet known whether giving bendamustine hydrochloride and rituximab together alone is more effective than giving bendamustine hydrochloride and rituximab together with bortezomib or lenalidomide in treating follicular lymphoma.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying giving bendamustine hydrochloride and rituximab together with or without bortezomib followed by rituximab with or without lenalidomide to see how well they work in treating patients with high-risk stage II, stage III, or stage IV follicular lymphoma.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Remission (CR) Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed every 4 weeks during induction treatment and every 8 weeks during continuation treatment, up to 2 years ]

    Complete remission is defined as complete disappearance of all detectable clinical evidence of disease and disease-related symptoms if present prior to therapy.

    This analysis was conducted among 222 evaluable patients for the primary analysis. The purpose of this analysis is to compare the complete remission rate of rituximab + bendamustine vs. bortezomib + rituximab + bendamustine as induction therapy, therefore, the proportion of patients with complete remission was compared between Arm B (bortezomib + rituximab + bendamustine) and Arms A and C combined (rituximab + bendamustine).


  2. 1-year Post-induction Disease-free Survival (DFS) Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed at 1 year post-induction, approximately 1.5 years ]

    1-year post induction disease-free survival rate is defined as the proportion of patients achieving complete remission during induction treatment and are alive and maintaining complete remission at 1 year after induction completion.

    The purpose of this analysis is to compare the 1-year post-induction disease-free survival (DFS) rate with rituximab plus lenalidomide to rituximab alone as continuation therapy following induction treatment of bendamustine+rituximab, therefore, patients with induction treatment of bendamustine + rituximab + bortezomib were not included in this analysis.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 3-year Progression-free Survival Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed every cycle during treatment and every 6 months between 2 and 5 years from study entry ]

    Progression-free survival is defined as the time from registration of induction treatment to progression, relapse or death, whichever occurs first. Patients alive without documented progression are censored at last disease assessment. 3-year progression-free survival rate is the proportion of patients who were progression-free and alive at 3 years estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.

    Progression/relapse is defined as appearance of any new lesion more than 1.5 cm in any axis during or at the end of therapy, >=50% increase from nadir in the SPD of any previously involved nodes or extranodal masses or the size of other lesions, or >=50% increase in the longest diameter of any single previously identified node or extranodal mass more than 1 cm in its short axis.


  2. 5-year Overall Survival Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed every cycle during treatment and every 6 months between 2 and 5 years from study entry ]
    Overall survival is defined as the time from randomization to death or date last known alive. 5-year overall survival rate is the proportion of patients who were alive at 5 years estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.

  3. Complete Remission (CR) Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed every 4 weeks during induction treatment and every 8 weeks during continuation treatment, up to 2 years ]

    Complete remission is defined as complete disappearance of all detectable clinical evidence of disease and disease-related symptoms if present prior to therapy.

    This analysis was conducted among 222 evaluable patients. The proportion of patients with complete remission was compared between patients with Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI) of 3-5 and patients with FLIPI of 0-2/unknown.

    The FLIPI was developed in order to predict prognosis of patients with newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL). The five FLIPI risk factors were: age > 60 years, Ann Arbor stage III-IV, hemoglobin level < 12 gm/dL, >4 nodal areas, and serum LDH level above normal. The FLIPI score was calculated by summing the number of risk factors. The higher the FLIPI score, the worse the prognosis.


  4. 1-year Disease-free Survival (DFS) Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed at 1 year post-induction, approximately 1.5 years ]

    1-year post induction disease-free survival rate is defined as the proportion of patients achieving complete remission during induction treatment and are alive and maintaining complete remission at 1 year after induction completion.

    This analysis was conducted among 203 evaluable patients in the continuation treatment portion of the study. The 1-year post induction disease-free survival rate was compared between patients with FLIPI of 3-5 and patients with FLIPI of 0-2/unknown.

    The FLIPI was developed in order to predict prognosis of patients with newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL). The five FLIPI risk factors were: age > 60 years, Ann Arbor stage III-IV, hemoglobin level < 12 gm/dL, >4 nodal areas, and serum LDH level above normal. The FLIPI score was calculated by summing the number of risk factors. The higher the FLIPI score, the worse the prognosis.


  5. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Assessed every cycle during treatment and every 6 months between 2 and 5 years from study entry ]

    Progression-free survival is defined as the time from registration of induction treatment to progression, relapse or death, whichever occurs first. Patients alive without documented progression are censored at last disease assessment. Progression/relapse is defined as appearance of any new lesion more than 1.5 cm in any axis during or at the end of therapy, >=50% increase from nadir in the SPD of any previously involved nodes or extranodal masses or the size of other lesions, or >=50% increase in the longest diameter of any single previously identified node or extranodal mass more than 1 cm in its short axis.

    The five FLIPI risk factors were: age > 60 years, Ann Arbor stage III-IV, hemoglobin level < 12 gm/dL, >4 nodal areas, and serum LDH level above normal. The FLIPI score was calculated by summing the number of risk factors. The higher the FLIPI score, the worse the prognosis.


  6. 5-year Overall Survival Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed every cycle during treatment and every 6 months between 2 and 5 years from study entry ]
