Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Intermediate-Grade or High-Grade Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Who Have Not Responded to Anthracycline-Containing Combination Chemotherapy
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
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.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, etoposide, and cisplatin in treating patients with intermediate or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have relapsed following or are resistant to anthracycline-containing primary combination chemotherapy.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||INTENSIFICATION WITH HIGH DOSE CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE, ETOPOSIDE, AND CISPLATIN FOR INTERMEDIATE OR HIGH GRADE LYMPHOMA PATIENTS WHO FAILED PRIMARY COMBINATION CHEMOTHERAPY|
|Study Start Date:||December 1991|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of high-dose cyclophosphamide/etoposide/cisplatin in patients with intermediate- or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have failed primary combination chemotherapy but still respond to conventional-dose DHAP (dexamethasone/cytarabine/cisplatin) and are not candidates for bone marrow transplantation. II. Determine the toxicity of the intensification chemotherapy regimen in this group of patients.
OUTLINE: Nonrandomized study. 3-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. CVP: Cyclophosphamide, CTX, NSC-26271; Etoposide, VP-16, NSC-141540; Cisplatin, CDDP, NSC-119875.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: If at least 1 CR is seen in the first 6 patients, an estimated maximum of 20 patients will be enrolled. If 3 or more of the first 10 patients (or 25% of the study population thereafter) die within the first 35 days of treatment from causes unrelated to tumor progression, the study will be terminated.
