BACKGROUND: Patients with relapsed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) not eligible for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) or having relapse after ASCT have a low likelihood of cure. Single-drug maintenance after salvage therapy might be an attractive strategy to prolong survival in these patients. Lenalidomide is a suitable candidate for long-lasting maintenance as it is an oral drug, active against DLBCL that can be taken for years with an acceptable toxicity profile. We designed a study to investigate safety and efficacy of lenalidomide maintenance in patients with chemosensitive relapse of DLBCL not eligible for ASCT or having relapse after ASCT...

The management of aggressive B cell lymphomas in elderly patients is associated with poor tolerability of commonly used chemotherapeutic agents. The safety and tolerability of a novel combination chemotherapy regimen utilizing rituximab, lenalidomide, bendamustine, vincristine and prednisolone was assessed in a series of elderly patients with new onset or relapsed/refractory aggressive B cell lymphoma and inability to receive conventional chemotherapy due to poor performance status and/or significant comorbidities...

Relapse of Hodgkin lymphoma after autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (autologous HCT) is a major therapeutic challenge. Its management, at least in younger patients, traditionally involves salvage chemotherapy aiming to achieve disease remission followed by consolidation with allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allogeneic HCT) in eligible patients. The efficacy of salvage therapy is variable and newer combination chemotherapy regimens have improved the outcomes. Factors such as shorter time to relapse after autologous HCT and poor performance status have been identified as predictors of poor outcome...

BACKGROUND: Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is an uncommon variant of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that is characterized by its plasmacytoid features, aggressive tendencies, and frequent association with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or other immunocompromised states. Multi-agent, intensive chemotherapy regimens are recommended as first-line treatment by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. However, the toxicity of these regimens is high and prognosis remains poor. CASE REPORT: We report a patient with HIV-negative PBL who achieved complete response and durable remission using a lenalidomide-based chemotherapy regimen as first-line therapy...

: Disease Overview: Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma with immunoglobulin M (IgM) monoclonal protein. Clinical features include anemia, thrombocytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy, and rarely hyperviscosity. DIAGNOSIS: Presence of IgM monoclonal protein associated with ≥10% clonal lymphoplasmacytic cells in bone marrow confirms the diagnosis. The L265P mutation in MYD88 is detectable in more than 90% of patients. Risk Stratification: Age, hemoglobin level, platelet count, β2 microglobulin, and monoclonal IgM concentrations are characteristics required for prognosis...

Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is a rare distinct subtype of aggressive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and a notoriously hard to treat entity with a dismal prognosis in both HIV-negative and HIV-positive patients. Clinicians often face the question of second or third line treatment. As the treatment options with novel agents in lymphomas are rapidly evolving, more and more options beyond standard chemotherapy are available. In connection with a review of treatment options with novel lymphoma agents, we present a case report of a patient with a complete remission after the administration of brentuximab vedotin and lenalidomide...

The management of relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma remains challenging. Patients with relapsed mantle cell lymphoma have been treated with multi-agent salvage chemotherapies; however, outcomes are poor. Although there have been studies in the relapse/refractory setting, current data indicate that autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation may be an especially useful approach in the front line setting in patients in first complete or partial remission following induction chemotherapy. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is the only curative option, although reduced intensity conditioning in chemo-sensitive relapse or refractory mantle cell lymphoma provides better survival rates...

Although rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) is the standard treatment for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), ∼30% to 50% of patients are not cured by this treatment, depending on disease stage or prognostic index. Among patients for whom R-CHOP therapy fails, 20% suffer from primary refractory disease (progress during or right after treatment) whereas 30% relapse after achieving complete remission (CR). Currently, there is no good definition enabling us to identify these 2 groups upon diagnosis...

Follicular lymphoma(FL) is the most common indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma and constitutes 15% to 30% of lymphoma diagnoses. The natural history of the disease is characterized by recurrent relapses and progressively shorter remissions with a median survival of 10yrs. The impossibility of achieving a definite cure, have prompted investigations into the possible role of more active and less toxic strategies with innovative therapeutic agents. Recently Casulo et al. demonstrated that approximately 20% of patients with FL relapse within two years after achieving remission with R-CHOP and have a poor prognosis...

Chemoimmunotherapy in follicular lymphoma is associated with significant toxicity. Targeted therapies are being investigated as potentially more efficacious and tolerable alternatives for this multiply-relapsing disease. Based on promising activity with rituximab and lenalidomide in previously untreated follicular lymphoma (overall response rate [ORR] 90%-96%) and ibrutinib in relapsed disease (ORR 30%-55%), the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology conducted a phase 1 trial of rituximab, lenalidomide, and ibrutinib...

Recent clinical trials for T/NK-cell lymphomas are summarized herein, focusing on ATL and extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma (ENKL). The outcomes of patients with these malignancies were the poorest among various peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) in the International T-Cell Lymphoma Project. JCOG has conducted several clinical trials aimed at improving these poor outcomes. For aggressive ATL, JCOG is conducting a phase II trial of VCAP-AMP-VECP followed by allogeneic SCT. For localized ENKL, concurrent chemoradiotherapy has shown promising and durable efficacy in the phase I/II study...

Despite the improvement in prognosis since the advent of rituximab, follicular lymphoma is still incurable and remains the cause of death of most afflicted patients. With the expanding knowledge of the pathogenesis of B-cell malignancies, in the last few years a plethora of new therapies acting through a variety of mechanisms have shown promising results. This review attempts to analyze the evidence available on these new drugs, which include new monoclonal antibodies and immunoconjugates, the anti-angiogenic and immunomodulatory agent lenalidomide, the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib, inhibitors of B-cell receptor pathway enzymes, such as ibrutinib, idelalisib, duvelisib and entospletinib, BCL2 inhibitors and checkpoint inhibitors...

Lenalidomide, an immunomodulatory drug that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for the treatment of multiple myeloma, 5q- myelodysplasia and mantle-cell lymphoma (MCL), has encouraging efficacy in other B-cell malignancies. Its unique mechanism of action is in part due to altering the tumor microenvironment and potentiating the activity of T and natural-killer (NK) cells. Impressive clinical activity and excellent tolerability allows broad applicability. Lenalidomide has been used in a wide range of B-cell malignancies for years, but in 2013, the FDA marked its approval as a single agent only in relapsed/refractory mantle-cell lymphoma...

INTRODUCTION: Although the combination of an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody and chemotherapy has widely improved survival of patients with B-cell lymphoma, the disease still relapses. A better understanding of the biology of lymphomas has highlighted the role of the cell of origin in response to treatment and outcome. Lenalidomide represents an attractive therapeutic option due to its original mechanism of action. AREAS COVERED: In this review, the authors describe the pharmacological properties of lenalidomide, and the rational for its use in B-cell lymphomas; focusing on diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), follicular lymphoma (FL), and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL)...

BACKGROUND: Despite the advent of new treatment strategies, many patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) relapse or die of the disease. Prospective clinical trials have demonstrated that lenalidomide is an effective and safe treatment option, especially for non-germinal center B-cell (non-GCB) DLBCL. However, routine clinical data are lacking, which is why we provide the results of the so-far largest relapsed/refractory (R/R) DLBCL real-life analysis. METHODS: We retrospectively assessed 123 R/R DLBCL patients who received either 15 or 25 mg/day of lenalidomide from January 2006 to January 2015...
