Bortezomib, Ifosfamide, and Vinorelbine in Treating Young Patients With Hodgkin's Lymphoma That is Recurrent or Did Not Respond to Previous Therapy

2014-08-27 03:42:19 | BioPortfolio


RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ifosfamide and vinorelbine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Bortezomib may help ifosfamide and vinorelbine work better by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drugs. Giving bortezomib together with ifosfamide and vinorelbine may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well giving bortezomib together with ifosfamide and vinorelbine works in treating young patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma that is recurrent or did not respond to previous therapy.




- Determine the efficacy and safety of bortezomib (as a chemosensitizing agent) in pediatric patients and young adults with primary refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) or HL in first relapse.

- Determine response rate in patients treated with bortezomib, ifosfamide, and vinorelbine ditartrate (IVB) and compare it to the historical response rate in patients treated with ifosfamide and vinorelbine ditartrate alone.


- Determine the overall response rate (complete and partial response) and induction success rate after 2 or 4 courses of therapy and the reinduction rate (complete response) after 4 courses of therapy.

- Determine the proportion of patients able to mobilize sufficient hematopoietic stem cells (CD34+) after 2 courses of IVB.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, open-label, pilot study.

Patients receive ifosfamide IV continuously over days 1-4, vinorelbine ditartrate IV over 6-10 minutes on days 1 and 5, bortezomib IV on days 1, 4, and 8, and filgrastim (G-CSF) IV or subcutaneously beginning on day 6 and continuing until blood counts recover or peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) are harvested. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 2 or 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients undergo autologous PBSC harvesting according to institutional guidelines after the second course of therapy.

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

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 48 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pyrazine and boronic acid derivative that functions as a reversible PROTEASOME INHIBITOR. It is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE MYELOMA and MANTLE CELL 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.

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.

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.
