The study is evaluating the efficacy and safety of daily alternating thalidomide and lenalidomide plus rituximab (ThRiL) in people with previously treated Waldenstrom Macroglobulunemia (WM).
Thalidomide and lenalidomide are drugs that modulate the immune system and have been shown to bring about responses in patients with WM. However, their use has been limited due to side effects. Alternating doses of thalidomide and lenalidomide may alleviate the side effects while preserving the effectiveness of the therapies.
- Thalidomide every ODD day of a 28 day cycle
- Lenalidomide every EVEN day of a 28 day cycle
- Rituximab on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 and then again on the same weekly x 4 schedule every 6th cycle thereafter (Cycles 7, 13, 19, etc)
Study participants may continue to receive thalidomide and lenalidomide until their disease worsens.
