Gemcitabine and Vinorelbine in Treating Young Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Hodgkin's Lymphoma

2014-08-27 03:54:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine and vinorelbine, use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving gemcitabine together with vinorelbine works in treating young patients with recurrent or refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the response rate of pediatric patients with recurrent or refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with gemcitabine and vinorelbine.

- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a nonrandomized, multicenter study.

Patients receive vinorelbine IV over 6-10 minutes and gemcitabine IV over 100 minutes on days 1 and 8. Patients also receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously daily beginning on day 9 and continuing for at least 7 days and until blood counts recover. Treatment repeats every 21 days for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with responding disease after 2 courses may proceed directly to stem cell transplantation off study OR receive 2 additional courses. Patients with stable disease after 2 courses receive at least 2 additional courses. Patients with continued stable or responding disease (with no disease progression) after 4 courses may continue to receive study treatment for up to 1 year or discontinue study for alternative therapy at the discretion of the treating physician.

Patients are followed for survival.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 13-26 patients will be accrued for this study within 1.5 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nitrogen mustard compound that functions as an ALKYLATING ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT and is used in the treatment of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA and NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA.

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.

A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.

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.
