RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining interferon alfa or the monoclonal antibody rituximab with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to compare the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy plus interferon alfa or rituximab in treating patients who have high risk stage III or stage IV lymphoma.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the toxicity of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) with either interferon alfa or rituximab in patients with stage III or IV high risk indolent or intermediate B-cell lymphoma. II. Determine the objective tumor response rate and duration of response for these regimens in these patients. III. Determine the failure free survival and overall survival for these patients on these regimens. IV. Compare the response rate and survival rate of these patients on these regimens to similar patients treated in published studies. V. Compare the toxicities of these regimens in these patients. VI. Determine the quality of life of these patients on these regimens.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are assigned to one of two treatment arms: Arm I: Patients receive rituximab IV on day 0, and cyclophosphamide IV, doxorubicin IV, and vincristine IV on day 1, followed by oral prednisone on days 1-5. Arm II: Patients receive interferon alfa subcutaneously on days 22-26, and cyclophosphamide IV, doxorubicin IV, and vincristine IV on day 1, followed by oral prednisone on days 1-5. Treatment repeat every 28 days for up to 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Quality of life is assessed at baseline and prior to chemotherapy for each course. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually for up to 10 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40-80 patients (20-40 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

We report comparative efficacy between high-dose cyclophosphamide (HDCyC), low-dose cyclophosphamide (LDCyC), mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and rituximab in patients with lupus nephritis (LN).
Purpose The FOLL05 trial compared R-CVP (rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisone) with R-CHOP (rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) and R-FM ...

A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acid residues with arginine in position 23 and histidine in position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).
An interferon regulatory factor that binds upstream TRANSCRIPTIONAL REGULATORY ELEMENTS in the GENES for INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It functions as a transcriptional activator for the INTERFERON TYPE I genes.
