The University of Virginia Cancer Center seeks adults age 18 or older with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma for a research study. Brentuximab vedotin has been approved for treatment of certain diseases, but the purpose of the study is to see how well brentuximab vedotin, lenalidomide, and rituximab work together in treating diffuse large b-cell lymphoma and what side effects it causes.
You may be eligible for this study if: your diffuse large B-cell lymphoma has come back or did not get better with your last treatment.
There is a 50% chance you will receive lenalidomide, and rituximab with brentuximab and 50% chance of receiving lenalidomide, rituximab, and a placebo (inactive drug).
