Clinical Trial ECOG 1412

Title
Randomized Phase II Open Label Study of Lenalidomide R-CHOP (R2CHOP) vs RCHOP (Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine and Prednisone) in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma
Principal Investigator
Adam M Petrich
Details
  • Status: Accepting New Patients
  • Study Type: Therapeutic, Treatment
  • Protocol No:.ECOG 1412
Purpose
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, the addition of lenalidomide (also called revlimid) to standard chemotherapy (RCHOP - Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine and Prednisone) has on patients and their cancer.
Overview
Everybody in this study will receive standard chemotherapy. In addition to standard chemotherapy, half of the patients will receive a medication called lenalidomide. Adding lenalidomide to the standard chemotherapy RCHOP is considered experimental in diffuse large B cell lymphoma, and is not FDA approved for this disease (though it is FDA approved for a different type of B cell lymphoma).
Eligibility
Some of the eligibility criteria include:
  • Participants must have a diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that is CD20 positive.
  • Participants may not have received prior treatment for their cancer.
  • Participants must be 18 or older.
Note: This is only a partial list of eligibility criteria. Please contact the Lurie Cancer Center for complete screening information if you are interested in this clinical trial.
Description of Treatment
Study participants will receive up to 6 cycles of chemotherapy, with each cycle given 21 days apart. Those in group 1 (Arm A) will receive rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and vincristine as an intravenous infusion (IV) on day 1 of the cycle, and prednisone orally on day 1 to 5 of each cycle (this combination is called RCHOP). In addition, participants in this group will receive lenalidomide by mouth for 10 days of each cycle. This treatment will be repeated every 21 days. Participants assigned to group 2 (Arm B) will also receive identical RCHOP treatment, on the same schedule, but will not receive lenalidomide.
