A Phase I/II Clinical Trial of the mTor Inhibitor RAD001 (Everolimus) in Combination With Lenalidomide (Revlimid) for Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Lymphoid Malignancy

RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes
needed for cell growth. Lenalidomide may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking blood
flow to the cancer. Giving everolimus together with lenalidomide may be an effective
treatment for lymphoma.

PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of giving
everolimus and lenalidomide together and to see how well they work in treating patients with
relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin or Hodgkin lymphoma.


I. To establish the maximum tolerated dose of RAD001 and lenalidomide in subjects with
relapsed/refractory Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or Hodgkin Lymphoma. (Phase I) II. To assess tumor
response to RAD001 and lenalidomide in subjects with relapsed/refractory Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
or Hodgkin Lymphoma. (Phase II)


I. To evaluate overall survival, progression-free survival, duration of response, and time to
treatment failure of subjects receiving RAD001 and lenalidomide.

II. To describe the adverse event profile (using CTCAE CTEP Active Version) of RAD001 and

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral everolimus once daily and oral lenalidomide once daily on days
1-21. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or
unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.

single diameter of >= 2 cm or tumor cells in the blood >= 5 x10^9/L (Skin lesions can
be used if the area is >= 2 cm in at least one diameter and photographed with a ruler)

- For lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma patients without measurable lymphadenopathy, measurable
disease is defined by both of the following criteria: Bone marrow lymphoplasmacytosis

or lymphoplasmacytic cells on bone marrow biopsy and quantitative IgM monoclonal
protein > 800 mg/dL

- Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or if total bilirubin is > 1.5 x

hours of starting lenalidomide 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, during study treatment and for 8 weeks
after the last dose of RAD001 (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 (All patients must be counseled at a minimum of every
28 days about pregnancy precautions and risks of fetal exposure)

- All study participants must be registered into the mandatory RevAssist program, and be
willing and able to comply with the requirements of RevAssist

of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study or
interfere significantly with the proper assessment of safety and toxicity of the
prescribed regimens
