Given the poor prognosis of HIV-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and it's still high incidence in HAART era, more intensive therapy is required in patients with initially severe stage of NHL or relapsing after first-line chemotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of an intensive chemotherapy followed by peripheral blood cell transplantation in these patients.
Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has dramatically reduced mortality and morbidity of HIV-infected patients by decreasing the incidence of opportunistic infections and HIV-related malignancies such as Kaposi sarcoma. However, the frequency of NHL remains increased in these patients. Moreover, their prognostic remains poor comparing to HIV negative patients. This is mainly due to the type of NHL (aggressive B, and frequent stage IV) but also host factors such as immunodeficiency, co-infections (EBV, HHV8), and chemotherapy-HAART interactions. In the lack of new and significantly more efficient treatments, therapeutic intensification such as high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (ASCT), already tested in relapsed or partially responding HIV negative patients, could be an option in HAART controlled HIV+ patients with NHL, rather in first complete remission (CR) but with initially high International Prognosis Index (IPI above or equal to 2), or in second CR, whatever initial IPI. Positive selection CD34+ cells is an approach for depleting grafts of tumour cells and HIV DNA. However the delayed lymphocyte recovery following this process, may lead to increased incidence of opportunistic infections (OI) in HIV-infected patients. OI prophylaxis will be systematically associated.
Eligible patients will have peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) mobilization and divided in two subgroups. Group A with 3-6 x 106 PBSC will not undergo CD34+ selection process and group B with more than 6 x 106 will undergo this process. The myeloablative conditioning process is the same in the two groups with total body irradiation before reinfusion of grafts.
Patients will be followed from week2 (W2) up to W60 with clinical and biological evaluations.

Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
Transplantation from another site in or on the body of the individual receiving it.
