Brief Summary:
This I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of lenalidomide when given together with nivolumab and to see how well they work in treating patients with non-Hodgkin or Hodgkin lymphoma that has come back and does not respond to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lenalidomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving nivolumab and lenalidomide may work better in treating patients with non-Hodgkin or Hodgkin lymphoma.

(Phase II) IV. To evaluate and monitor effects on B-, T-, and NK-cell function with the combination of lenalidomide and nivolumab in patients with relapsed/refractory FL and DLBCL. (Phase II)

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

Patients receive lenalidomide orally (PO) on days 1-21 and nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on days 1 and 15 of courses 1-4 and on day 1 of courses 5-12. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, then every 6 months for up to 3 years.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events summarized by NCI CTCAE version 4 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will be assessed and tabulated across all patients who received any treatment with a focus on severe (grade 3+) adverse events and toxicities (ie those deemed at least possibly related to study treatment). Will also assess tolerability of the regimens through assessing the number of patients who required dose modifications and/or dose delays. Will capture the proportion of patients who go off treatment due to adverse events or those who refuse to continue treated for lesser toxicities.

  2. Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) defined as the dose level at which no more than one of 6 patients experiences a dose-limiting toxicity summarized by National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4 [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ]
    Will be assessed and tabulated across all patients who received any treatment with a focus on severe (grade 3+) adverse events and toxicities (ie those deemed at least possibly related to study treatment). Will also assess tolerability of the regimens through assessing the number of patients who required dose modifications and/or dose delays. Will capture the proportion of patients who go off treatment due to adverse events or those who refuse to continue treated for lesser toxicities.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete response rate (CR) in patients [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Complete response rate (CR) in patients with relapsed/refractory HD receiving the combination of lenalidomide and nivolumab

  2. Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Overall Response Rate in patients with relapsed/refractory HD receiving the combination of lenalidomide and nivolumab

  3. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From study entry to the time of death due to any cause, assessed up to 5 years ]
    Will be evaluated for each of the cohorts and graphically summarized using the methods of Kaplan and Meier.

  4. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From study entry to the time of progression and/or death, assessed up to 5 years ]
