In spite of high initial response rate after a first line treatment by R-polychemotherapy, cutaneous but also extra-cutaneous recurrences occur after 2 years in about half of the patients with PCBCL-LT. Thereafter there is no consensus concerning patients care: radiotherapy has only a palliative effect, advanced age often limits using more aggressive chemotherapies and no treatment has demonstrated a prolonged efficacy in these relapsing cases. Therefore new alternatives therapeutic options are needed. Lenalidomide has an antineoplastic pro-apoptotic effect but also immunomodulatory, and antiangiogenic properties. Preliminary results suggest its efficacy in relapsing or refractory diffuse large B-cells lymphomas, especially of nongerminal cells phenotype. By analogy with these results, lenalidomide appears as an attractive candidate in PCLBCL-LT, more specially as it has a manageable toxicity even in advanced age patients.

If the lenalidomide efficacy is confirmed in relapsing PCLBCL-LT, this will plead its evaluation as maintenance therapy after R-chemotherapy in order to avoid recurrences.

Detailed Description:

To assess benefit and safety of lenalidomide in patients with refractory or relapsing primary cutaneous large B-cell lymphoma leg type (PCBCL-LT) after a first line treatment by Rituximab and polychemotherapy. The primary endpoint is overall response rate (complete response and partial response) at 6 months. Response will be assessed according to clinical and isotopic criteria.

Optional biological study:

A biological collection (skin and blood samples) will be established. Predictive biological markers of response or of aggressiveness and resistance to the treatment will be investigated on the skin biopsies by phenotypic and genetic analyses. The recent discovery of BLIMP1 inactivation or deletion at 6q21 in activated B-cell like type of diffuse large B-cell systemic lymphoma points to the need of both a global genetic analysis by Array-CGH with Single Nucleotide Polymorphism study and a specific investigations of the status of genes such as CDKN2A, BCL2, BCL6 and BLIMP1 by FISH analysis and/or gene dosage. Xenograft will be performed from skin biopsies in order to develop animal models for PCLBCL-LT.

Lenalidomide stimulates NK cells immunity and enhances anti-tumor responses. It also seems to modify the phenotype of NK cells through a decrease of the expression of Killer cell Immunoglobulin-like Receptors and NKp46. The expression of the NK receptors on blood cells will be analyzed in order to evidence modifications of the phenotypical and functional changes under treatment, and to search for a correlation with the clinical response to the treatment.
