Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy Followed by Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

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

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage cancer cells. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow doctors to give higher doses of chemotherapy and radiation therapy and kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of etoposide plus radiation therapy followed by peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the overall and progression-free survival of patients with selected poor-prognosis non-Hodgkin's lymphomas treated with high-dose etoposide and total-body irradiation followed by rescue with peripheral blood stem cells. II. Determine the toxicity of this regimen. III. Evaluate the short-term and long-term engraftment characteristics of patients treated on this regimen.

OUTLINE: Patients who respond on Regimen A and who have no bulk disease greater than 5 cm are treated on Regimen B. Regimen A: Single-Agent Chemotherapy/Stem Cell Mobilization with Urothelial Protection and Growth Factor Therapy. Cyclophosphamide, CTX, NSC-26271; with Mesna, NSC-113891; and Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (Amgen), G-CSF, NSC-614629. Regimen B: Sequential Radiotherapy, Single-Agent Chemotherapy, and Stem Cell Rescue. Total-body irradiation, TBI (equipment not specified); Etoposide, VP-16, NSC-141540; and Peripheral Blood Stem Cells, PBSC.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 20 patients will be studied.

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.

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 sulfhydryl compound used to prevent urothelial toxicity by inactivating metabolites from ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS, such as IFOSFAMIDE or CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE.

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.

Hematopoietic stem cells found in peripheral blood circulation.
