Brief Summary:
This is an open label phase Ib/IIa study of patients with relapsed/refractory B- and T-cell lymphomas who are treated with carfilzomib, lenalidomide and romidepsin in a 3+3 design. The phase IIa portion of the study will involve a dose expansion at the MTD to better characterize the efficacy and to inform further disease specific studies.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase Ib/IIa Study of Combination Therapy With Carfilzomib, Romidepsin, Lenalidomide in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory B- and T-cell Lymphomas
Actual Study Start Date : January 2, 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 11, 2023
Actual Study Completion Date : January 11, 2023

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Carfilzomib, Romidepsin, Lenalidomide
All patients will be treated with romidepsin administered intravenously on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle. Lenalidomide will be taken orally daily for days 1-14 of a 21-day cycle. The carfilzomib will be given weekly on days 1, and 8 of a 21-day cycle. Once a MTD is determined this dosing level will be used for the phase IIa portion. Cycles will be continued as above until the patient's wishes to be removed from the study, unacceptable toxicity develops, disease progression, treating physician recommends removal, or termination of study occurs.
Drug: Carfilzomib
The initial dose of carfilzomib (cycle 1, day 1) given to any patient regardless of dose level must be 20mg/m2 . All subsequent doses of carfilzomib will be based on the patient's dose level.

Drug: Romidepsin
Drug: Lenalidomide

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MTD (phase Ib) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Determine the MTD by NCI-CTCAE v4.0.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. overall response rate (orr) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    will be summarized using proportions and confidence intervals will be provided. ORR will be calculated based on the best response at any time during the course of treatment on this protocol.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Pathologically confirmed B- or T-cell lymphomas at the enrolling institution, including stage ≥ Ib CTCL, which has relapsed or progressed after at least one systemic therapy.
  • Hodgkin lymphoma is allowed and will be classified as a B-cell lymphoma in the phase IIA portion.
  • Age ≥ 18,
  • Previous systemic anti-cancer therapy must have been discontinued at least 3 weeks prior to treatment and adverse effects must have resolved to ≤Grade 1 or baseline. In the phase IIa portion, in progressing subjects, a 2 week washout may be allowed after discussion with the MSK Principal Investigator.
  • Previous radiation, hormonal therapy, and/or surgery must have been discontinued or completed at least 2 weeks prior to treatment in this study and adverse effects must have resolved. Lymph node or other diagnostic biopsies within 2 weeks are not considered exclusionary.
  • ECOG ≤ 2
  • Meet the following laboratory criteria:
  • Absolute neutrophil count 1.0/mm³,
  • Platelet count 80 K/μ (in the Phase II portion, if thrombocytopenia is due to bone marrow involvement platelet count must be 50 K/μL),
  • Phase Ib subjects must have calculated creatinine clearance 50ml/min by Cockcroft-Gault formula, phase IIa subjects must have calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 40ml4/min by Cockcroft-Gault formula.
  • Total bilirubin 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN); AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) 3 x ULN
  • Measurable disease for phase IIa portion only.
  • Lymphoma (includes CTCL patients who are without evidence of the disease in the skin): CT or PET/CT by modified Cheson criteria with incorporation of PET.
  • CTCL: mSWAT >0, or absolute Sezary count ≥ 1000 cells/μL.
  • All study participants must be registered into the mandatory Revlimid REMS ® program, and be willing and able to comply with the requirements of the REMS ® program.
  • Short course systemic corticosteroids for disease control, improvement of performance status or non-cancer indication (< 7 days) must have been discontinued at least 6 days prior to study treatment. Stable ongoing corticosteroid use (≥ 30 days) up to an equivalent dose of 15 mg of prednisone is permissible.
  • Topical steroids that have been used for > 3 weeks may be continued (CTCL only).
  • Women of reproductive potential must adhere to the scheduled pregnancy testing as required in the Revlimid REMS® program. Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with a FCBP even if they have had a successful vasectomy. See Appendix A: Risks of Fetal Exposure, Pregnancy Testing Guidelines and Acceptable Birth Control Methods.
  • A female of reproductive potential is a sexually mature female who:
  • has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e. has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have a standard curative option for their lymphoid malignancy at current state of disease are excluded. For eligibility on this trial, allogeneic stem cell transplantation is not to be considered a standard curative option.
  • Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form.

  • Concomitant use of significant CYP3A4 inhibitors unless able to be switched to a non-CYP3A4 inhibiting medication.
  • Caution should be used when administering study drugs to patients taking medications significantly metabolized by these enzymes refer to (http://medicine.iupui.edu/clinpharm/ddis/clinical-table/ ) for clinically relevant medications. Particular attention should be paid to patients receiving warfarin. Patient should have coagulation parameters monitored regularly, and warfarin dose adjusted accordingly. If these drugs cannot be discontinued or replaced, enrollment may be allowed after discussion with MSK PI.
