META ANALYSIS OF THE USE OF THE COMBINATION OF LENALIDOMIDE AND RITUXIMAB IN RELAPSED/REFRACTORY INDOLENT NON HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMAS
Indolent non Hodgkin's lymphomas form about 70% of non Hodgkin's lymphomas. They are characterized by early relapse (20%) and refractory disease to immunochemotherapy. They are prevalent among the elderly who may not tolerate repeated chemotherapy and stem cell transplant.
The aim of this analysis is to do a systematic analysis of clinical trials using meta analysis to determine the efficacy of this combination in indolent non Hodgkn's disease.
A systemic search of the data base of MEDLINE, COCHRANE and EMBASE was done and randomized controlled phase II/III trials were selected for review using the words: relapsed / refractory indolent lymphomas, clinical trials in follicular lymphoma, in small cell B cell lymphoma, in marginal zone lymphomas and secondary search with clinical trials with lenalidomide and rituximab.
This analysis shall be with minimal bias and it is expected to help in developing our treatment algorithm for patients with relapsed/refractory disease since these agents are available in the country
