Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Amifostine in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma or Hodgkin's Disease Undergoing Stem Cell Transplantation

2014-08-27 03:58:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Chemoprotective drugs such as amifostine may protect normal cells from the side effects of chemotherapy.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy with or without amifostine in treating patients with recurrent or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or Hodgkin's disease who are undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the role of amifostine in reducing hematologic toxicity and improving mobilization of peripheral progenitor stem cells in patients with recurrent or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or Hodgkin's disease who are undergoing platinum based salvage chemotherapy. II. Evaluate the role of amifostine in preventing renal toxicity in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an randomized, open label study. Patients are randomized to receive salvage chemotherapy with intravenous dexamethasone/cisplatin/cytarabine (DHAP) with or without amifostine. Patients receive cisplatin IV over 3 hours followed by cytarabine IV for 2 doses. Patients also receive dexamethasone orally or IV. Treatment repeats every 3-4 weeks for 2-6 courses. Arm I: Patients receive amifostine IV over 15 minutes prior to all courses of DHAP, as a 15 minute infusion, beginning 30 minutes prior to cisplatin administration. Arm II: Patients do not receive amifostine. On day 3 of the last DHAP course, patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) until the last day of progenitor stem cell (PSC) mobilization. PSC transplant continues daily for 4-10 days.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients (20 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study.

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.

Hematopoietic stem cells found in peripheral blood circulation.

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.

Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
