Study Details 

This phase 3 multicenter, double-blind, randomized study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rituximab plus lenalidomide versus rituximab plus placebo. Subjects must have an investigator-assessed diagnosis of relapsed/refractory indolent lymphoma, defined in this clinical trial as Grade 1, 2 or 3a follicular lymphoma or marginal zone lymphoma, must have been previously treated for their lymphoma with systemic therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or chemo immunotherapy), must be refractory to or have relapsed after their last treatment, may be rituximab-naïve or rituximab-sensitive, must have at least one measurable lesion by computed axial tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, and must have adequate bone marrow function, liver function and renal function.

The study is divided into the Screening Period (up to 28 days), Treatment Period (up to 12 28-day cycles), and Follow-up Period. Approximately 350 subjects are planned to be randomized with 5 subjects at WCMC. Each patient will receive rituximab weekly during cycle 1 and then on day 1 of cycles 2-5. Depending on randomization, subjects will also receive either lenalidomide or placebo on days 1-21 of cycles 1-12.
