An open label, phase 2 study of ibrutinib in combination with rituximab and lenalidomide in previously untreated subjects with follicular lymphoma and marginal zone lymphoma
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if adding Imbruvica (ibrutinib) to Rituxan (rituximab) and Revlimid (lenalidomide) can help to control previously untreated follicular lymphoma (FL) and marginal zone lymphoma.
Disease Group: Lymphoma
Treatment Agent: Ibrutinib,Lenalidomide,Rituximab
Treatment Location: Only at MDACC
Sponsor: Institutional Moon Shots Fund,Janssen
Primary · To evaluate the efficacy of ibrutinib combined with rituximab and lenalidomide in patients with previously untreated Follicular Lymphoma (FL) and Marginal Zone Lymphoma (determined by progression-free survival at 2 years). Secondary · To evaluate the efficacy of ibrutinib combined with rituximab and lenalidomide in subjects with FL as assessed by complete response rate (CR) at 120 weeks, overall response rate (ORR), duration of response (DOR), event free survival (EFS), time to next anti-lymphoma treatment (TTNT), and overall survival (OS). · To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ibrutinib combined with rituximab and lenalidomide in previously untreated subjects with FL and Marginal Zone Lymphoma. Exploratory · To evaluate prognostic and mechanistic biomarkers relative to treatment outcomes.

5) Any life-threatening illness, medical condition, or organ system dysfunction which, in the investigator’s opinion, could compromise the subject’s safety, interfere with the absorption or metabolism of ibrutinib or lenalidomide capsules, or put the study outcomes at undue risk, including but not limited to: a.
