Liposomal Doxorubicin Followed By Bexarotene in Treating Patients With Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as liposomal doxorubicin and bexarotene, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Bexarotene may also cause cutaneous T-cell lymphoma cells to look more like normal cells, and to grow and spread more slowly. Giving liposomal doxorubicin followed by bexarotene may be an effective treatment for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving liposomal doxorubicin followed by bexarotene works in treating patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
- Determine the progression-free survival of patients with stage IB-IV cutaneous T-cell lymphoma treated with doxorubicin HCl liposome followed by bexarotene.
- Determine the complete and partial response rate in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 30-90 minutes once on day 1. Treatment repeats every 2 weeks for 8 courses. Beginning within 4 weeks after the last dose of doxorubicin HCl liposome, patients receive oral bexarotene once daily for at least 16 weeks. Patients who achieve a complete or partial response may continue to receive bexarotene in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for 5 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Precursor T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia-lymphoma
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
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.
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.
