ClinicalTrials.gov processed this data on August 23, 2015
Link to the current ClinicalTrials.gov record.

Condition(s) targeted: B-Cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-CLL)

Intervention: Lenalidomide (Drug); Chlorambucil (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Active, not recruiting

Sponsored by: Celgene Corporation

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Oliver Kong, MD, Study Director, Affiliation: Celgene Corporation


The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of lenalidomide as a first line therapy in treating patients with B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. This study will compare the effects (good and bad) of lenalidomide with chlorambucil.

Clinical Details


Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Progression Free Survival (PFS)

Safety [type, frequency, and severity of adverse events (AEs)]

Overall Survival

Number of anti-cancer therapies obtained from randomized participants

Secondary outcome:

Response, including evaluation of minimal residual disease (MRD) by flow cytometry (Hallek, 2008)

Duration of response

Time to response

Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQL) by Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy -Leukemia (FACT-Leu) and EQ-5D

Detailed description: After notification from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on 12 July 2013, Celgene agreed to discontinue the lenalidomide treatment for all patients due to an imbalance in the number of deaths in patients treated with lenalidomide versus patients treated with chlorambucil. No specific causality for this imbalance has been identified to date. Investigators were instructed to immediately discontinue all participants from experimental lenalidomide treatment and inform their patients accordingly. Participants on the Chlorambucil arm may continue up to 12 months (13 cycles) with the last participant completing in March 2014. All randomized participants will continue to be followed for overall survival and secondary primary malignancies.
