Everolimus and Lenalidomide in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Non-Hodgkin or Hodgkin Lymphoma

Overview

About this study

RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Lenalidomide may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking blood flow to the cancer. Giving everolimus together with lenalidomide may be an effective treatment for lymphoma.

PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of giving everolimus and lenalidomide together and to see how well they work in treating patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin or Hodgkin lymphoma.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

  • Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with a FCBP even if they have had a successful vasectomy (All patients must be counseled at a minimum of every 28 days about pregnancy precautions and risks of fetal exposure)
  • Provide informed written consent
  • Willingness to return to Mayo Clinic enrolling institution for follow-up
  • Patient is willing to provide blood samples for research purposes
  • Recovered from acute side effects of prior myelosuppressive chemotherapy or biological therapy
  • All study participants must be registered into the mandatory RevAssist program, and be willing and able to comply with the requirements of RevAssist

Exclusion

  • Co-morbid systemic illnesses or other severe concurrent disease which, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study or interfere significantly with the proper assessment of safety and toxicity of the prescribed regimens
  • Active other malignancy, excepting non-melanotic skin cancer or carcinoma-in-situ of the cervix (If there is a history of prior malignancy, they must not be receiving other specific treatment (other than hormonal therapy) for their cancer)
  • History of myocardial infarction ≤ 6 months, or congestive heart failure requiring use of ongoing maintenance therapy for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias
  • Any of the following because this study involves an agent that has known genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects; Nursing women; Men or women of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate contraception throughout the study and for 8 weeks after the last dose of study drug (NOTE: If barrier contraceptives are being used, these must be continued throughout the trial by both sexes; hormonal contraceptives are not acceptable as a sole method of contraception)
  • Patients who have received prior treatment with both an mTOR inhibitor (sirolimus, temsirolimus, everolimus) and lenalidomide who did not have a response to either when used as single agents
  • Patients with a known allergic reaction to thalidomide, RAD001 (everolimus) or other rapamycins (sirolimus, temsirolimus) or their excipients to the point where either agent should not be given again
  • The development of erythema nodosum if characterized by a desquamating rash while taking thalidomide or similar drugs
  • Known positive for HIV or infectious hepatitis, type A, B or C
  • Patients, who have had a major surgery or significant traumatic injury within 4 weeks of start of study drug, patients who have not recovered from the side effects of any major surgery (defined as requiring general anesthesia) or patients that may require major surgery during the course of the study
