Patients with cutaneous T cell lymphoma experience refractory and progressive disease despite current treatment, necessitating chronic disease management. In addition, there needs to be greater emphasis on combination treatment, which correlates with increased response rate, more rapid onset of response, and decreased side effect profile compared to monotherapy. The goal for the use of Lenalidomide as an adjuvant treatment in patients with refractory cutaneous T cell lymphoma is to increase response rates, maintain a durable long-term response, relieve associated symptoms, and minimize toxic side effects.
Lenalidomide Starting Dose Based on Renal Function at Study Entry Baseline Calculated Creatinine Clearance (by Cockcroft-Gault) Starting Lenalidomide Dose 60 ml/min 25mg daily on Days 1-21 of each 28-day cycle 30 and < 60 ml/min 10mg daily on Days 1-21 of each 28-day cycle
Response rate(RR measurements are based on skin scoring using mSWAT (modified severity weighted assessment tool), Sezary cell count, and lymph node assessment. [ Time Frame: 1 year (average) ]
The primary efficacy measure is the response rate (RR) based on skin scoring using mSWAT (modified severity weighted assessment tool), Sezary cell count, and lymph node assessment. Response rate is defined as the number of responders divided by the number of treated patients. A responder is defined as any patient who exhibits a confirmed complete or partial response.
• Patients will be treated until progressive disease is demonstrated by ≥ 25% increase of SWAT score.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
The assessment of patient-reported changes of pruritus during treatment [ Time Frame: 1 year (average) ]
Descriptive statistics will be calculated for pruritus relief. Both median duration of pruritus relief (for those exhibiting improvement in pruritus) and time to pruritus relief will be estimated.
The assessment of the patient-reported improvement in quality of life during treatment [ Time Frame: 1 year (average) ]
The validated DLQI patient self assessment questionnaire will be used to quantify the impact of skin disease on patients' quality of life
The assessment of the safety and tolerability of lenalidomide in the study population [ Time Frame: 1 year (average) ]
The assessments of sezary cell count ,disease status using the mSWAT tool, lymphnode evaluations and adverse event incidences( associated with study medication )will be perfomed every four weeks to assess lenalidomide safety and tolerability.

Stage IB to IVB disease at screening (TNMB classification, see Protocol Attachment C)
Refractory disease after at least 2 prior therapies, which may include topicals, phototherapy, bexarotene, interferon, and/or photopheresis. Patients may be currently taking these medication and therapies may be used in combination.
Determined to have adequate baseline organ function defined as:
Hepatic: Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN),AST and ALT ≤ 3.0 x ULN
At least 3 months since the initiation of any new CTCL treatments.
Stable or progressive disease despite current treatment regimen over the last 3 months.
All study participants must be registered into the mandatory RevAssist® program, and be willing and able to comply with the requirements of RevAssist®.
Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test with a sensitivity of at least 50 mIU/mL within 10 - 14 days prior to and again within 24 hours prior to prescribing lenalidomide (prescriptions must be filled within 7 days) and must either commit to continued abstinence from heterosexual intercourse or begin TWO acceptable methods of birth control, one highly effective method and one additional effective method AT THE SAME TIME, at least 28 days before she starts taking lenalidomide.
FCBP must also agree to ongoing pregnancy testing.
Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with a FCBP even if they have had a successful vasectomy.
A female of childbearing potential is a sexually mature woman who:
has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy
has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months). See Appendix: Risks of Fetal Exposure, Pregnancy Testing Guidelines and Acceptable Birth Control Methods.
Disease free of prior malignancies for ≥ 5 years, with exception of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or breast or cervix in situ carcinoma.
Expected survival of > 6 months.
Able to take aspirin (81 or 325 mg) daily as prophylactic anticoagulation. Patients intolerant to aspirin may use warfarin or low molecular weight heparin.
Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form.
Female subjects who are pregnant, nursing, or planning pregnancy. Female subjects not using at least 2 forms of birth control during the trial, unless the subject is considered sterile (history of hysterectomy or postmenopausal with no menses for the last 24 consecutive months).
History of deep venous thrombus (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE), unless currently on anticoagulation therapy (warfarin or heparin).
Subjects receiving chemotherapeutic agents (or have received in the last 3 months), vorinostat, or methotrexate.
Use of any other experimental drug or therapy within 28 days of baseline.
Known hypersensitivity to thalidomide.
History of erythema nodosum or desquamating rash while taking thalidomide or similar drugs.
Any prior use of lenalidomide.
Known seropositive for or active viral infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV). Patients who are seropositive because of hepatitis B virus vaccine are eligible..
Having a serious concomitant systemic disorder that could preclude the patient from benefiting or completing the study based on discretion of the investigator.
Any condition or circumstance judged by the investigator that would render the clinical trial detrimental or otherwise unsuitable for the patient's participation.
