Genetic Determinations for Side Effects and Response Rate for Patients Receiving Chemotherapy With Diffuse Large Cell Lymphoma
The purpose of this study is to determine whether people have genes that make them more likely to respond to chemotherapy and/or have side effects from chemotherapy for diffuse large cell lymphoma.

|Official Title:||Candidate Gene Polymorphisms and Response to Rituximab-CHOP in Patients With Diffuse Large Cell Lymphoma|
- Negative [F-18]fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scan after 2 cycles of R-CHOP [ Time Frame: Approximately 42 days (2 cycles of R-CHOP) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Response after six cycles of R-CHOP [ Time Frame: Approximately 126 days (6 Cycles of R-CHOP) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Grade 3-4 toxicity [ Time Frame: Approximately 156 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2005|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
No Intervention: R-CHOP
Patients receiving R-CHOP via standard of care which consists of cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m2 IV day 1 of each 21 day cycle, doxorubicin 50 mg/m2 IV day 1 of each 21 day cycle, vincristine 1.4 mg/m2 IV day 1 of each 21 day cycle, prednisone 100 mg PO days 1-5 of each 21 day cycle, and rituximab 375 mg/m2 IV day 1 of each 21 day cycle.
Procedure: Blood draw
Sample Collection for Genotyping prior to cycle 1 treatment of R-CHOP, if patient is enrolled after cycle 1, sample for genotyping should be collected prior to cycle 2.
Upon enrollment in the study, patients will have a blood sample collected for genotyping of the FCGR3A gene (immunoglobulin Fc G receptor IIIa), the ABCB1 gene (ATP Binding Cassette Beta 1; also called MDR1), and other candidate genes. Patients will be treated with R-CHOP for six cycles, which is standard therapy for advanced stage DLCL. Response will be monitored by an FDG-PET scan performed after 2 cycles of R-CHOP and restaging exams performed upon completion of chemotherapy. Gene polymorphisms will be analyzed to establish which polymorphisms predict response to R-CHOP.
