Iodine I 131 Tositumomab Followed by Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Older Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies, such as iodine I 131 tositumomab, can locate cancer cells and deliver radioactive cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Combining a radiolabeled monoclonal antibody with autologous stem cell transplantation may be an effective treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining iodine I 131 tositumomab with autologous stem cell transplantation in treating older patients who have relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Procedure: autologous bone marrow transplantation
Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
Radiation: tositumomab and iodine I 131 tositumomab

|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial Evaluating: Radioiodinated Anti-B1 (Anti-CD20) Antibody With Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation For Relapsed Or Refractory Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma In Patients 60 Years Of Age And Older|
- Disease-free survival measured continuously [ Time Frame: from date of transplant through date of death ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||October 1999|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the progression-free survival of older patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with iodine I 131 tositumomab followed by autologous stem cell transplantation.
- Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the toxicity and tolerability of this regimen in these patients.
- Radioimmunotherapy: Patients receive a test dose of iodine I 131 tositumomab on day -24 to determine biodistribution. Patients then receive therapeutic iodine I 131 tositumomab IV over 1 hour on day -14 and are entered into radiation isolation until day -4.
- Autologous stem cell transplantation: Patients undergo autologous bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation on day 0. Patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation receive filgrastim (G-CSF) or sargramostim (GM-CSF) subcutaneously beginning on day 0 and continuing until blood counts recover.
Patients are followed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 24-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.
