RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as rituximab can locate cancer cells and deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies can locate and deliver radioactive cancer-killing substances.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of combining radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies with rituximab in treating patients who have non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that has not responded to high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of yttrium Y 90-labeled ibritumomab tiuxetan when administered with rituximab in patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have relapsed after high-dose chemotherapy and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
- Determine the safety and efficacy of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of yttrium Y 90-labeled ibritumomab tiuxetan (IDEC-Y2B8).
- Phase I: Patients receive rituximab IV over 4-6 hours followed by indium In 111-labeled ibritumomab tiuxetan (IDEC-In2B8) IV over 10 minutes on day 0. Patients receive rituximab IV again on day 7 followed by IDEC-Y2B8 IV over 10 minutes.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of IDEC-Y2B8 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which 3 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
- Phase II: Once the MTD is determined, 58 additional patients are treated at that dose level as in phase I.
Patients are followed at 6 weeks, every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 78 patients (20 for phase I and 58 for phase II) will be accrued for this study within 2 years.

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.
Stable yttrium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element yttrium, but differ in atomic weight. Y-89 is the only naturally occurring stable isotope of yttrium.
Unstable isotopes of yttrium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Y atoms with atomic weights 82-88 and 90-96 are radioactive yttrium isotopes.
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.
An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Y, atomic number 39, and atomic weight 88.91. In conjunction with other rare earths, yttrium is used as a phosphor in television receivers and is a component of the yttrium-aluminum garnet (YAG) lasers.
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.

Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
