This is an open label, phase II study to evaluate the capacity of Rituximab (Mabthera®) plus Lenalidomide (Revlimid®) to induce objective responses in patients with Mucosa Associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT) lymphoma presenting with measurable disease.

Condition Intervention Phase

Drug: Rituximab and Lenalidomide
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II Trial of Rituximab Plus Lenalidomide in Patients With Lymphoma of the Mucosa Associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT) Type

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective responses in patients with MALT lymphoma presenting with measureable disease [ Time Frame: At screening, after 3, 6, and 8 cycles (cycle duration 28 days) ]
    Capacity of Rituximab (Mabthera®) plus Lenalidomide (Revlimid®) to induce objective responses in patients with MALT lymphoma

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: From treatment start until 28 days after last study treatment; expected study duration 24 months ]
    Safety of Rituximab (Mabthera®) plus Lenalidomide (Revlimid®) in this patient population

  • Influence of Rituximab plus Lenalidomide on T-cell subsets [ Time Frame: Day 1, 14 and 28 of cycle 1 and day 1 of cycle 5 ]
    T-cell subsets will be evaluated from EDTA blood in a central lab

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: May 2012
Study Completion Date: February 2015
Primary Completion Date: May 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Rituximab and Lenalidomide
Single arm: 6 cycles for patients with complete response, 8 cycles for subjects with stable disease or partial remission; cycles duration: 28 days Rituximab (Mabthera®): 375 mg/m² i.v. day 1 Lenalidomide (Revlimid®): 20 mg p.o. daily for 21 days
Drug: Rituximab and Lenalidomide
Rituximab 375 mg/m² i.v. day 1 Lenalidomide 20 mg p.o. daily for 21 days Cycles should be repeated every 28 days. Restaging should be performed after three cycles. In case of at least stable disease, patients should receive another three courses of therapy. Patients with documented CR after 6 courses will stop therapy/study, while patients with PR or SD will be given another two cycles for a maximum of 8 cycles.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria selected:

  • Histologically verified diagnosis if MALT lymphoma of any localization
  • Measurable disease upon diagnosis or first or greater relapse after local therapy, prior chemotherapy orHP-eradication. In addition, also in patients with gastric MALT-lymphoma judged refractory to HP-eradication by a minimum follow-up of 12 months after successfulHP-eradication will be included in the study. Patients with gastric MALT lymphoma and no evidence of HP-infection may be enrolled immediately
  • Ann Arbor Stage I-IV
  • In case of prior treatment with Rituximab, the presence of CD20 on lymphoma cells must have been demonstrated before inclusion in the trial.
  • ECOG performance status of 0,1 or 2
  • Patient must be able to take aspirin daily as prophylactic anticoagulation (patients intolerant to ASA may use warfarin or low molecular weight heparin

Exclusion Criteria selected:

  • Lymphoma histology other than MALT lymphoma or MALT lymphoma with a diffuse large cell lymphoma ("high grade lymphoma") - component
  • Use of any investigational agent within 28 days prior to initiation of treatment with lenalidomide
  • History of malignancy other than squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma of the skin or carcinoma in situ of the cervix within the last 5 years
  • Major surgery, other than diagnostic surgery, within the last 4 weeks
  • Evidence of CNS involvement
  • A history of uncontrolled seizures, central nervous system disorders or psychiatric disability judged by the investigator to be clinically significant and adversely affecting compliance to study drugs
  • Severe peripheral polyneuropathy
  • Clinically significant cardiac disease or myocardial infarction within the last 6 months
  • Known hypersensitivity to thalidomide or lenalidomide or rituximab
