Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation Following Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Hodgkin's Disease or Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy followed by peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have Hodgkin's disease or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Autologous Blood Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Hodgkin's Disease and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Who Have Had Prior Radiation Therapy|
|Study Start Date:||October 1999|
|Study Completion Date:||June 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||June 2002 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the toxicity and response to intensive chemotherapy followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in patients with Hodgkin's disease or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have received prior chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral busulfan every 6 hours on days -9 to -6 and cyclophosphamide IV over 2 hours on days -5 to -2. Autologous peripheral blood stem cells are reinfused on day 0. Patients are followed monthly for 1 year.
