This study is to determine first the appropriate dose of lenalidomide to administer in combination with fixed doses of obinutuzumab in relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma patients.

In a second step, this study aims to determine the efficacy of this combiation in 2 separate populations: relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma in one cohort and relapsed/refractory aggressive lymphoma (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma) in the second cohort.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase I part: Determination of the recommended dose of lenalidomide in combination with fixed doses of GA101 [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The determination of the recommended dose of lenalidomide in combination with fixed doses of GA101 will be performed by a dose escalation approach. Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) observed during the administration of the first 2 cycles of the study will be listed for each escalation step.

  • Phase II part: Overall Response Rate (CR+CRu+PR) after 6 cycles [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response rates at the end of treatment including maintenance will be expressed as percentages with their 95% Exact Clopper Pearson Confidence Interval limits

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Overall survival will be measured from the date of inclusion to the date of death from any cause.

    Alive patients will be censored at their last date known to be alive

  • Event Free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Event-Free Survival will be measured from the date of inclusion to the date of first documented disease progression, relapse, initiation of new anti-lymphoma therapy or death from any cause.

  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression-Free Survival will be measured according to the Cheson 2007 criteria. Responding patients and patients who are lost to follow up will be censored at their last tumor assessment date.

  • Response duration [ Time Frame: Up to 4.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients alive and free of progression will be censored at their last follow-up date

  • Response rate at the end of maintenance treatment [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response rates will be evaluated at the end of maintenance phase for patients who achieve a CR/PR after induction treatment and received at least one dose of maintenance. Assessment of response will be based on the International Workshop to Standardize Response criteria for NHL (Criteria for evaluation of response in Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (Cheson, 2007)). Patient without response assessment after maintenance treatment (due to whatever reason) will be considered as non-responder.

  • Complete response rate after induction [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Disease response evaluation after 6 cycles will be used to determine the Complete Response Rate. Response after 6 cycles will be assessed only if patient completes induction phase. Assessment of response will be based on the International Workshop to Standardize Response criteria for NHL (Criteria for evaluation of response in Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (Cheson, 1999 and 2007)).

  • Complete response rate after 3 cycles [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Disease response evaluation after 3 cycles will be used to determine the Complete Response Rate.

    Response after 3 cycles will be assessed at the end of completion of the 3 cycles if patient received all 3 cycles or at withdrawal. Assessment of response will be based on the International Workshop to Standardize Response criteria for NHL (Criteria for evaluation of response in Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (Cheson, 1999 and 2007).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lenalidomide and GA101
Ga101 and lenalidomide
Drug: Lenalidomide and GA101
1000mg of GA101 on D8, D15 and D22of cycle 1 and on D1 of cycles 2 to 6. Oral lenalidomide once daily at 10/15/20/25mg (phase I part) or at recommended dose (phase II part) on days 1 to 21 of a 28-day cycle for the first cycle and on days 2 to 22 of a 28-day cycle for cycles 2 to 6.
Other Names:
  • Revlimid
  • Obinutuzumab

Detailed Description:

This study is an open label, multicenter study with two phases:

The Phase IB part of the study is a dose escalation study of lenalidomide (Revlimid) administered orally during on 3 weeks of every 28-day cycle, in combination with fixed doses of obinutuzumab (GA101) in relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma patients.

The Phase II part of the study is an efficacy study of the association of the recommended dose of lenalidomide associated with GA101 in 2 separate populations of patients: relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma in one cohort and relapsed/refractory aggressive lymphoma (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma) in the second cohort. First, all patients will receive a combination of obinutuzumab and lenalidomide for a total of 6 cycles. Patients who achieve at least a partial response after 6 cycles will receive a maintenance treatment with obinutuzumab for 2 years and Lenalidomide for 1 year as tolerated, or until disease progression.
