This phase II trial studies how well obinutuzumab with or without umbralisib, lenalidomide, or combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with grade I-IIIa follicular lymphoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Immunotherapy with obinutuzumab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Umbralisib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone, and bendamustine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving obinutuzumab with or without umbralisib, lenalidomide, or combination chemotherapy will work better in treating patients with grade I-IIIa follicular lymphoma.



I. To compare the complete response rate up to 6 cycles after randomization as defined by centrally read positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) (integral biomarker) of 2 targeted therapeutic regimens (obinutuzumab + umbralisib [TGR-1202] or obinutuzumab + lenalidomide) with obinutuzumab + chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride [doxorubicin], vincristine sulfate [vincristine], and prednisone [CHOP] or bendamustine hydrochloride [bendamustine]) in patients with early relapsing or refractory follicular lymphoma.


I. To validate the prognostic association of the m7-FLIPI model, demonstrating that the population of follicular lymphoma patients who respond poorly to chemoimmunotherapy are enriched for having a high-risk m7-FLIPI score, and that the score is associated with progression-free survival (integrated biomarker). (Primary translational medicine) II. To estimate the 30-month sustained complete response rate (CR30) defined by centrally read PET/CT with each of the regimens in this early relapsing or refractory follicular lymphoma population.

III. To estimate best response up to 12 cycles of therapy, progression free survival, duration of response and overall survival with each of the combinations in early relapsing or refractory follicular lymphoma.

IV. To evaluate the adverse effects of each of the regimens in early relapsing or refractory follicular lymphoma.

V. To evaluate the predictive performance of non-invasive genotyping (m7-FLIPI in circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid [DNA]) of plasma at study entry relative to standard tumor genotyping (m7-FLIPI) of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tumor tissue.

VI. To evaluate the association between the detection of active lymphoma by PET-CT and the detection of circulating tumor DNA in plasma at baseline, after 6 and 12 cycles, and at 30 months after initiation of study therapy.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 3 arms.

ARM I: Patients receive obinutuzumab intravenously (IV) on day 1 and umbralisib orally (PO) daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM II: Patients receive obinutuzumab IV on day 1 and lenalidomide PO on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up 12 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.


PRIOR BENDAMUSTINE-BASED CHEMOTHERAPY: Patients receive obinutuzumab IV on day 1, cyclophosphamide IV on day 1, doxorubicin IV on day 1, vincristine IV on day 1, and prednisone PO on days 1-5. Treatment with obinutuzumab repeats every 21 or 28 days for up to 12 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Treatment with combination chemotherapy repeats every 21 days for 6 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PRIOR CHOP CHEMOTHERAPY: Patients receive obinutuzumab IV on day 1, and bendamustine IV over 60 minutes on days 1 and 2. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 or 12 cycles (bendamustine and obinutuzumab, respectively) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
