The purpose of this study is to determine the optimal dose of subcutaneous CAMPATH when used in combination with rituximab for patients with relapsing or refractory, low-grade or follicular, CD-20-positive, B-Cell non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Safety will be the primary objective of phase I, while the primary objective of phase II will be to determine overall response.
This study is being conducted in 2 parts. Phase I will involve dose escalation of subcutaneous CAMPATH (SQ) given 3 times per week in combination with weekly doses of rituximab (375mg/m2) for a maximum of 8 weeks in order to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). In Phase II patients will be treated with SQ CAMPATH at the MTD plus weekly rituximab (375mg/m2)for a maximum of 8 weeks with primary objective of defining Overall Response (OR) to this combination.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer, whereas lymphoma is the sixth leading cause of cancer death, 90% of which corresponds to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The associat...
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.
An anti-CD52 ANTIGEN monoclonal antibody used for the treatment of certain types of CD52-positive lymphomas (e.g., CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA; CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA; and T-CELL LYMPHOMA). Its mode of actions include ANTIBODY-DEPENDENT CELL CYTOTOXICITY.
