Combination Chemotherapy Plus Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Early-Stage Hodgkin's Disease

2014-08-27 03:59:01 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Combining more than one chemotherapy drug with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy plus radiation therapy in treating patients who have early stage Hodgkin's disease.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the progression-free and overall survival at 5 and 10 years after a short-term Stanford V regimen comprising mechlorethamine, doxorubicin, vinblastine, prednisone, vincristine, bleomycin, and etoposide followed by modified involved-field radiotherapy in patients with favorable, early-stage Hodgkin's disease. II. Determine whether the early and late toxic effects of treatment can be minimized by avoiding staging laparotomy, limiting cumulative doses of chemotherapeutic drugs, and reducing the dose and volume of radiotherapy in these patients. III. Determine the freedom from second disease progression at 5 and 10 years after treatment and treatment-related toxicity in these patients. IV. Determine the quality of life of patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: Patients receive the Stanford V regimen comprising mechlorethamine IV on days 1 and 29; doxorubicin IV and vinblastine IV on days 1, 15, 29, and 43; oral prednisone every other day on days 1-36 followed by tapered doses; vincristine IV and bleomycin IV on days 8, 22, 36, and 50; and etoposide IV on days 15, 16, 43, and 44. Beginning 2 weeks after completion of chemotherapy and when blood counts recover, patients undergo modified involved-field radiotherapy 5 days a week for 3-4 weeks. Quality of life is assessed. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50 patients will be accrued for this study within 5 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.

A vesicant and necrotizing irritant destructive to mucous membranes. It was formerly used as a war gas. The hydrochloride is used as an antineoplastic in Hodgkin's disease and lymphomas. It causes severe gastrointestinal and bone marrow damage.

A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.

Derivatives of chondroitin which have a sulfate moiety esterified to the galactosamine moiety of chondroitin. Chondroitin sulfate A, or chondroitin 4-sulfate, and chondroitin sulfate C, or chondroitin 6-sulfate, have the sulfate esterified in the 4- and 6-positions, respectively. Chondroitin sulfate B (beta heparin; DERMATAN SULFATE) is a misnomer and this compound is not a true chondroitin sulfate.

An enzyme that catalyzes the activation of sulfate ions by ATP to form adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate and pyrophosphate. This reaction constitutes the first enzymatic step in sulfate utilization following the uptake of sulfate. EC 2.7.7.4.
