Overall Status
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.

The patient must read this document prior to starting lenalidomide study treatment and each time they receive a new supply of study drug.

- Social security cover

- Conditions of global RPP have to be fulfilled by all the patients

- The Lenalidomide Education and Counseling Guidance Document must be completed and signed by either a trained counselor or the Investigator at the participating clinical center prior to each dispensing of lenalidomide study treatment. A copy of this document must be maintained in the patient records.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Pregnant or lactating females, potentially childbearing females defined by sexually mature female who: 1) has not undergone a hysterectomy (the surgical removal of the uterus) or bilateral oophorectomy (the surgical removal of both ovaries) or 2) has not been naturally postmenopausal (amenorrhea following cancer therapy does not rule out childbearing potential) for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time during the preceding 24 consecutive months.

- Patients should not receive steroids continuously except for prednisone for tumoral flare treatment

- Uncontrolled infectious and thromboembolic diseases

- Subjects not willing to take deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis

- Prior history of malignancies unless the subject has been free of the disease for ≥5 years. Exceptions include basal cell skin carcinoma, carcinoma in situ of the cervix or of the breast

- Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form

- Known seropositive for or active viral infection with HIV, Hepatitis B and C virus.

- Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to ongoing or active infection requiring parenteral antibiotics, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus as defined by the investigator

- Unstable angina pectoris, angioplasty or myocardial infarctions within 6 months

- Clinically significant cardiac arrhythmia that is symptomatic or requires treatment, or asymptomatic sustained ventricular tachycardia.

- Prior ≥ Grade 3 allergic reaction/hypersensitivity or desquamative rash while taking thalidomide

- Any standard or experimental anti-cancer drug therapy or radiation within 3 weeks of the initiation of study drug therapy.
