RATIONALE: Interleukin-12 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill lymphoma cells. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of interleukin-12 plus rituximab in treating patients who have non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the optimal immunological dose of interleukin-12 and rituximab when administered in combination in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. II. Determine the toxicities associated with this regimen in this patient population. III. Assess the pharmacodynamics of this regimen in these patients. IV. Document observed clinical response to this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study of interleukin-12. Patients receive rituximab IV on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. The first cohort of patients receives interleukin-12 SC twice weekly beginning on day 29. Subsequent cohorts receive interleukin-12 SC twice weekly beginning on day 16. Patients with stable or responding disease may continue treatment with interleukin-12 twice weekly for up to 24 weeks or until disease progression. Cohorts of 6-9 patients receive escalating doses of interleukin-12 until the optimal immunological dose is determined. The optimal immunological dose is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 or 2 of 9 patients experience dose limiting toxicities or the dose at which there is a maximal increase in gamma interferon, inducible protein-10 (IP-10) and immune cell infiltration into the lymphoma (whichever dose is lower). Following initial dose escalation, 2 additional cohorts of 6 patients receive a fixed dose of interleukin-12 SC twice weekly beginning on day 2. Patients are followed every 3 months for the first year, and then every 6 months for the next 4 years or until disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 45 patients will be accrued for this study within 12-13 months.

A 58-year-old woman with intraocular relapse of a diffuse large B cell lymphoma. Weekly intravitreal rituximab (1 mg/0.1 ml) for 4 weeks were administered. 12 months after the last intravitreal ri...
Patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) have a poor prognosis, even in the rituximab era. Several studies have reported the clinical importance of the peripheral blood ...
This multicenter phase II trial tested the tolerability and efficacy of lenalidomide plus rituximab in patients with previously untreated follicular lymphoma (FL).
Mantle-cell lymphoma is generally incurable. Despite high rates of complete response after initial immunochemotherapy followed by autologous stem-cell transplantation, patients have relapses. We inves...
Is rituximab maintenance therapy after first-line induction chemoimmunotherapy for follicular lymphoma associated with improved outcomes?
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 interleukin receptor subunit that was originally discovered as a component of the INTERLEUKIN 2 RECEPTOR. It was subsequently found to be a component of several other receptors including the INTERLEUKIN 4 RECEPTOR, the INTERLEUKIN 7 RECEPTOR, the INTERLEUKIN-9 RECEPTOR, the INTERLEUKIN-15 RECEPTOR, and the INTERLEUKIN-21 RECEPTOR. Mutations in the gene for the interleukin common gamma chain have been associated with X-LINKED COMBINED IMMUNODEFICIENCY DISEASES.
Cell surface receptors for INTERLEUKIN-13. Included under this heading are the INTERLEUKIN-13 RECEPTOR ALPHA2 which is a monomeric receptor and the INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR TYPE II which has specificity for both INTERLEUKIN-4 and INTERLEUKIN-13.
A cytokine subunit that is a component of both interleukin-12 and interleukin-23. It binds to the INTERLEUKIN-12 SUBUNIT P35 via a disulfide bond to form interleukin-12 and to INTERLEUKIN-23 SUBUNIT P19 to form interleukin-23.
An interleukin receptor subunit with specificity for INTERLEUKIN-13. It dimerizes with the INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR ALPHA SUBUNIT to form the TYPE II INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR which has specificity for both INTERLEUKIN-4 and INTERLEUKIN-13. Signaling of this receptor subunit occurs through the interaction of its cytoplasmic domain with JANUS KINASES such as the TYK2 KINASE.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
