Study of VELCADE and Rituximab in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
The purpose of this study is to determine if the combination of VELCADE and rituximab improves progression free survival relative to rituximab alone in patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (B-NHL) who never received rituximab or who have previously responded to rituximab. This is an international study being conducted in the United States and in many countries around the world. A complete list of study locations is listed below.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.
A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).
Any of a group of malignant tumors of lymphoid tissue that differ from HODGKIN DISEASE, being more heterogeneous with respect to malignant cell lineage, clinical course, prognosis, and therapy. The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
Clinically benign, histologically malignant, recurrent cutaneous T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by an infiltration of large atypical cells surrounded by inflammatory cells. The atypical cells resemble REED-STERNBERG CELLS of HODGKIN DISEASE or the malignant cells of CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA. In some cases, lymphomatoid papulosis progresses to lymphomatous conditions including MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; HODGKIN DISEASE; CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA; or ANAPLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA.
Lymphoma, Large-cell, Anaplastic
A systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that has not responded to, or that has returned after standard treatment, responds to bortezomib, rituximab and bendamu...

A Pilot Study of Standard-Dose Rituximab, Ifosfamide, Carboplatin and Etoposide (RICE) Plus Bortezomib (Velcade) in a Dose-Escalating Fashion for Patients With Relapsed or Primary Refractory Aggressive B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Who Are Candidates for
This study seeks to determine the maximum tolerated dose of bortezomib in combination with rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide for patients with relapsed or primary refractor...
The purpose of this research study is to find out if treatment with rituximab in combination with aldesleukin (compared to rituximab alone) decreases the risk of cancer returning, as well...
Monoclonal antibodies have provided new promise for patients with B-cell malignancies. Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody against B-lymphocytes that express CD20; it is used for the treatment of patie...
Monoclonal antibodies are standard therapeutics for several cancers including the anti-CD20 antibody rituximab for B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Rituximab and other antibodies are not curative an...
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation is a well-known complication after rituximab therapy in patients with B cell lymphoma. Traditionally, hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) is a protective antib...
Combination of standard chemotherapy with rituximab led to improved disease control in patients with B cell lymphoma in clinical trials. We wanted to know if a similar benefit could be demonstrated in...
