Gemcitabine for Marginal Zone Lymphoma

2014-08-27 03:44:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Marginal zone lymphoma, one of the indolent lymphoma, is believed to be incurable with chemotherapy. Thus the investigators need a novel agent for marginal zone lymphoma. Gemcitabine has been tried as one of salvage chemotherapy regimen and has been shown to have anti-lymphoma activity. To the investigators' knowledge, there has been no trial of gemcitabine for marginal zone lymphoma. Thus the investigators made a plan to investigate the role of gemcitabine in marginal zone lymphoma.

Description

We designed a multi-center phase II trial of gemcitabine for advanced stage marginal zone B-cell lymphoma. Marginal zone lymphoma needs novel agent to improve clinical course by chemotherapy. Recent trials with new agents for indolent lymphoma shows promising results. Gemcitabine is known to have activity to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and has less adverse effects than other new agents. With this background gemcitabine will be tried as a single agent for advanced marginal zone lymphoma.

Gemcitabine will be administered with 1,250mg/sq.m on days 1 and 8 every 3 weeks. Response will be assessed by IWC criteria.

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.

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.
