Ifosfamide, Teniposide, and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Relapsed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

2014-07-24 14:35:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy 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: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of ifosfamide, teniposide, and paclitaxel in treating patients who have relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the toxicities associated with the combination of ifosfamide, teniposide, and weekly paclitaxel in patients with relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

- Evaluate response rate and time to disease progression in these patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study of teniposide. Patients are stratified according to whether they proceed to stem cell transplant or not.

Patients receive ifosfamide IV over 1-2 hours on days 1-3 every 3 weeks, teniposide IV over 2 hours on day 1 every 3 weeks, and paclitaxel IV over 1 hour weekly. Patients who are not candidates for stem cell transplant continue treatment for 120 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients proceeding to stem cell transplant continue treatment for 36 days. Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) may be harvested at this time if autologous transplant is planned. Transplant patients may then continue with chemotherapy or proceed to autologous or allogeneic PBSC transplant.

Cohorts of 3-5 patients receive escalating doses of teniposide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 3 of 5 patients experience dose limiting toxicities.

Patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-50 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.

Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.

The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.

Transplantation of STEM CELLS collected from the fetal blood remaining in the UMBILICAL CORD and the PLACENTA after delivery. Included are the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.

The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
