Having a large clinical trial portfolio means giving patients treatment options often not available anywhere else, and years before they become the standard of care.

    Primary Objective
    The primary endpoint for this study is toxicity which is coded according to the CTCAE v4. The primary objective is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of lenalidomide when given in combination with blinatumomab in the proposed regimen.

    Secondary Objectives
    • To observe and record anti-tumor activity anti-tumor response (CR and PR as per International workshop lymphoma response criteria (Cheson 2014)). Although the clinical benefit of this combination of drugs has not yet been established, the intent of offering this treatment is to provide a possible therapeutic benefit, and thus the patient will be carefully monitored for tumor response in addition to safety and tolerability.
    • To investigate the immune response to blinatumomab alone and in combination with lenalidomide, as measured by the frequency of activated Tcells, absolute lymphocyte count, antibody dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), and frequency of Bcells; these will be correlated with response and toxicity
    • To document the infection rate with a 96hour bag change schedule for blinatumomab.
