Autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation combined with high dose chemotherapy is the treatment of choice given to patients with diffuse large-B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) following relapse of the disease. Although many people are cured of their lymphoma with this therapy, the disease comes back in a certain proportion of patients. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of the monoclonal antibody, CT-011, in patients with DLBCL who have received autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. All final eligible patients will receive an IV infusion of CT-011 on Day 1 (30 to 90 days post autologous PBSCT). Treatment will be repeated every 42 days for a total of three courses with treatment visits on Days 1, 43, and 85. Follow-up for safety and clinical outcome will be conducted throughout the study till 18 months post autologous PBSCT. Approximately 70 patients will participate in this study.

Evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of metformin as an adjunct to RCHOP chemotherapy for patients with newly diagnosed diffuse large-B cell lymphoma
This randomized phase II trial is studying two different combination chemotherapy regimens to compare how well they work in treating patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
The specific pathogenesis of the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma(DLBCL)is still indefinite and argumentative. It is known that DLBCL is the most common type of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL). A lot of ca...
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma affecting pregnancy. These tumors may be aggressive and rapidly growing in pregnancy. Management is based on the balance...
Differential diagnosis between diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and follicular lymphoma (FL) becomes a challenge when adequate biopsy is unavailable. The present study aimed to investigate the ap...

Valid prognostic tools are needed to guide risk-adjusted treatment approaches in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Malignant lymphoma composed of large B lymphoid cells whose nuclear size can exceed normal macrophage nuclei, or more than twice the size of a normal lymphocyte. The pattern is predominantly diffuse. Most of these lymphomas represent the malignant counterpart of B-lymphocytes at midstage in the process of differentiation.
A human cell line established from a diffuse histiocytic lymphoma (HISTIOCYTIC LYMPHOMA, DIFFUSE) and displaying many monocytic characteristics. It serves as an in vitro model for MONOCYTE and MACROPHAGE differentiation.
A systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
A group of malignant lymphomas thought to derive from peripheral T-lymphocytes in lymph nodes and other nonlymphoid sites. They include a broad spectrum of lymphocyte morphology, but in all instances express T-cell markers admixed with epithelioid histiocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils. Although markedly similar to large-cell immunoblastic lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, LARGE-CELL, IMMUNOBLASTIC), this group's unique features warrant separate treatment.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
