Chemotherapy Followed by Zevalin for Relapsed Mantle Cell Lymphoma

2014-08-27 03:52:57 | BioPortfolio


- The purpose of this study is to find out whether combining a short course of chemotherapy (Fludarabine, Mitoxantrone and Rituximab) followed by Zevalin will be effective in treating relapsed mantle cell lymphoma.

- The secondary purposes of the study are to determine the safety and to evaluate whether there is additional benefit from Zevalin therapy following the chemotherapy.


- Patients receive fludarabine (days 1-3), mitoxantrone (day 1), and rituximab (day 1) of each 28-day cycle.

- Patients undergo a CT scan and bone marrow biopsy after two cycles. Unless the cancer has progressed, the patient will then receive Zevalin study treatment.

- Blood counts are taken every week for 12 weeks. After 12 weeks, a CT scan and bone marrow biopsy are performed.

- Long-term followup is 4 years. Physical exam and blood work is performed every 3 months for the first two years. Following that, physical exams and blood work is every 6 months for another two years. CT scans and bone marrow biopsies are every 6 months during this 4 year followup period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

The B-cell leukemia/lymphoma-1 genes, associated with various neoplasms when overexpressed. Overexpression results from the t(11;14) translocation, which is characteristic of mantle zone-derived B-cell lymphomas. The human c-bcl-1 gene is located at 11q13 on the long arm of chromosome 11.

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 murine-derived monoclonal antibody and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that binds specifically to the CD20 ANTIGEN and is used in the treatment of LEUKEMIA; LYMPHOMA and RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

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.
