A Multicenter, Single-Arm, Open-Label, Study To Evaluate The Safety And Efficacy Of Single-Agent Lenalidomide (Revlimid®) In Subjects With Androgen Independent Prostate Cancer
1. Understand and voluntarily sign an informed consent form.
2. Age > or = to 18 years at the time of signing the informed consent form.
3. Able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.
4. Must have a histologic diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the prostate.
5. Must be surgically or medically castrated. If the method is medical castration, the
subject must have a serum testosterone level of <50 ng/dl. The subject should
maintain treatment with LH RH antagonists or agonists.
6. Must have prostate cancer unresponsive or refractory to androgen blockade as
demonstrated by rising PSA.
-Rising PSA is defined as at least 2 consecutive rises in PSA to be documented over
the reference value (measure 1). The first rising PSA (measure 2) must be taken at
least 7 days after the reference value.
A third confirmatory PSA is required, and it must be obtained at least seven days
after the second measure. If this is not greater than measure 2, a fourth PSA is
required and this must be greater than measure 2.
-Absolute value of PSA > or = to 5 ng/ml on the last confirmatory assessment.
7. Prior treatment with antiandrogens such as flutamide, or other hormonal agents such
as estrogens, corticosteroids, or ketoconazole must have been stopped for at least 28
days prior to treatment.
In the case of nilandron and bicalutamide, treatment with these agents must have
stopped at least 42 days prior to treatment. Following completion of the
antiandrogen withdrawal period, either:
- One post withdrawal PSA value must be higher than the last pre-withdrawal PSA
- If the subject s PSA value decreased following the antiandrogen withdrawal
period then two increases in PSA values must be documented after the
8. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of 0 or 1
(Appendix II: ECOG Performance Status Scale).
1. Metastatic prostate cancer
2. Any of the following laboratory abnormalities:
1. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) <1,500 cells/mm3 (1.5 x 109/L)
2. Platelet count <100,000 cells/mm3 (100 x 109/L)
3. Serum creatinine >2.5 mg/dL (221 mmol/L)
4. Serum SGOT/AST or SGPT/ALT >3.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
5. Serum total bilirubin >2.0 mg/dL (34 mmol/L)
3. Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the
subject at unacceptable risk if he were to participate in the study or confounds the
ability to interpret data from the study.
4. Prior history of malignancies other than AIPC (except for basal cell or squamous cell
carcinoma of the skin) unless the subject has been free of the disease for > or = to
5. Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that
would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form.
6. Prior > or = to grade 3 allergic reaction/hypersensitivity to thalidomide.
7. Prior > or = to grade 3 rash or any desquamating (blistering) rash while taking
8. Prior use of lenalidomide.
9. Prior use of chemotherapy for androgen independent prostate cancer.
10. Use of any standard/experimental anti-cancer drug therapy within 28 days of the
initiation of study drug therapy except LHRH agonists/antagonists.
11. Known active Hepatitis C.
