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. It is not yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen is more effective for intermediate-grade or immunoblastic non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of two combination chemotherapy regimens in treating patients who have intermediate-grade or immunoblastic non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
OBJECTIVES: I. Compare, in a randomized setting, the time to treatment failure and the survival of patients with poor-prognosis intermediate-grade or immunoblastic lymphoma treated with the standard regimen of CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) vs. the new alternating triple therapy (ATT) of IdSHAP (idarubicin, cisplatin, cytarabine, methylprednisolone), BIdCOS (idarubicin, vincristine, bleomycin, cyclophosphamide, methylprednisolone), and MINE (mesna, ifosfamide, mitoxantrone, etoposide). II. Compare the complete response rate achieved with ATT vs. standard CHOP. III. Assess the feasibility of delivering full standard doses of chemotherapy to patients over 60 years of age who receive granulocyte colony stimulating factor support. IV. Compare the predictive capability of the M.D. Anderson Tumor Score System vs. the International Index System.
OUTLINE: Randomized study. The following acronyms are used: ARA-C Cytarabine, NSC-63878 BLEO Bleomycin, NSC-125066 CDDP Cisplatin, NSC-119875 CTX Cyclophosphamide, NSC-26271 DHAD Mitoxantrone, NSC-301739 DOX Doxorubicin, NSC-123127 G-CSF Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor (source unspecified) IDA Idarubicin, NSC-256439 IFF Ifosfamide, NSC-109724 MePRDL Methylprednisolone succinate Mesna Mercaptoethane sulfonate, NSC-113891 PRED Prednisone, NSC-10023 VCR Vincristine, NSC-67574 VP-16 Etoposide, NSC-141540 Arm I: Sequential 4-, 5-, and 3-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. IdSHAP: IDA/CDDP/ARA-C/MePRDL; followed by BIdCOS: BLEO/IDA/CTX/VCR/MePRDL; followed by MINE: Mesna/IFF/DHAD/VP-16. Arm II: 4-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. CHOP: CTX/DOX/VCR/PRED.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 218 evaluable patients will be accrued over approximately 31 months to this multicenter study. If either arm is significantly inferior at interim analyses after 31 and 60 treatment failures, consideration will be given to early closure.

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.
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.
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 22.214.171.124.
