RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as FR901228 and fludarabine, work in different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Rituximab may increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy drugs by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drugs.
PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the best dose of FR901228 when given together with rituximab and fludarabine and to see how well FR901228 works alone in treating patients with relapsed or refractory low-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
- Determine the clinical efficacy of single-agent FR901228 (depsipeptide), in terms of complete and partial response rates, in patients with relapsed or refractory low-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. (Phase II)
- Determine the feasibility of adding FR901228 to a rituximab and fludarabine combination regimen in these patients. (Phase I)
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of FR901228 when administered with this combination regimen in these patients. (Phase I)
- Correlate changes in histone acetylation assays with disease response (clinical outcome) in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the minimal residual disease by immunohistochemistry in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, phase II study of single-agent FR901228 followed by a phase I, dose-escalation study of FR901228.
- Phase II: Patients receive FR901228 IV over 4 hours on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients who achieve a complete or partial remission receive 2 additional courses (for a total of 6 courses). Patients with stable disease after 4 courses or progressive disease at any time after 2 courses proceed to the phase I portion of the study.
- Phase I: Patients receive rituximab IV over approximately 4-8 hours on day 1; fludarabine IV over 10-30 minutes on days 2-4; and FR901228 IV over 4 hours on days 2, 9, and 16. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of FR901228 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed for up to 3 years from study entry.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-36 patients will be accrued for the phase II portion of this study within 9 months. A total of 3-24 patients will be accrued for the phase I portion of this study.

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if giving romidepsin before and after a stem cell transplant in combination with fludarabine and busulfan can help to control leukemia ...
Rituximab plus chemotherapy has been shown to be effective in patients with advanced-stage, previously untreated follicular lymphoma; nevertheless, most patients will have a relapse. Combination immun...
Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The treatment response and overall survival (OS) improved after incorporating rituximab with chemotherapies. Yet, availab...
Although the life expectancy of patients with follicular lymphoma (FL) has increased, little is known of their causes of death (CODs) in the rituximab era.
Phase 2 trial of bortezomib in combination with rituximab plus hyperfractionated cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, and dexamethasone alternating with bortezomib, rituximab, methotrexate, and cytarabine for untreated mantle cell lymphoma.
Although the outcomes of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) have improved, there is still no cure. Bortezomib has a 33% response rate in relapsed/refractory MCL and has shown additive and/or syn...

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.
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.
