ACVBP Plus Rituximab in Patients Aged From 18 to 59 Years With High-risk Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma

2014-07-24 14:28:55 | BioPortfolio


This study is a multicentric trial evaluating the efficacy of R-ACVBP in patients aged 18 to 59 years with high risk diffuse large B-cell lymphoma


This phase II non randomized study is based on the results of the LNH 98-5, LNH 87-2, LNH 93-3 and LNH 98-3B studies.

To date, the ACVBP regimen is considered as the reference induction treatment of the GELA in patients with 2-3 adverse prognostic factors. Indeed neither NCVBP regimen (LNH87-2) nor ECVBP (LNH93-3) led to increase the complete remission rate. More recently, the addition of etoposide to doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (LNH98-3B) did not enhanced the complete remission rate with more toxicity. In patients < 60 years with 2-3 adverse prognostic factors the complete remission rate remained less than 65% in all these studies. Consequently, increasing the quality of response remains a major goal in this group of young patients with adverse prognostic factors.

It has been shown that the addition of rituximab to CHOP regimen significantly improved the CR rate in elderly patients with previously untreated large B-cell lymphoma when compared with CHOP alone without additional toxicities. Moreover, event-free survival and overall survival were found to be longer in the R-CHOP group. The present trial will evaluate the response rate obtained after four cycles of ACVBP combined to rituximab (R-ACVBP) before high dose therapy consolidative treatment in this group of higher risk patients.

The LNH87-2 study has shown that intensive consolidation treatment with autologous stem cell support was beneficial to high risk patients in good response after a full induction phase. The long-term results of this randomised study prompted us to consider high dose therapy as the best consolidative option for these patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).

The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.

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.
