|Brief Title ICMJE||Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy Plus Bone Marrow Transplantation in Treating Patients With Aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Randomised Study of High Dose Chemotherapy/Radiotherapy and Autologous Bone Marrow Transplantation in Patients With High Grade Malignant Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (Kiel Classification) According to Prognostic Groups|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage cancer cells. Bone marrow transplantation may allow doctors to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation therapy plus bone marrow transplantation in treating patients who have aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to risk group (good vs intermediate vs poor).
Patients undergo harvest of autologous bone marrow stem cells after priming chemotherapy and before transplantation.
Patients receive induction chemotherapy comprising the CHOP or VAPEC-B regimen. The CHOP regimen consists of vincristine (VCR) IV, cyclophosphamide (CTX) IV, and doxorubicin (DOX) IV on day 1 and oral prednisolone (PRDL) on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for six courses. The VAPEC-B regimen consists of DOX IV on days 1, 15, 29, 43, 57, and 71; CTX IV on days 1, 29, and 57; VCR IV on days 8, 22, 36, 50, and 64; bleomycin IV on days 8, 36, 64; oral etoposide (VP-16) on days 15-19, 43-47, and 71-75; and oral PRDL daily for 13 weeks.
Patients then may undergo radiotherapy for 2-3 weeks to areas of original bulk or residual disease.
Patients are followed monthly for 3 months, every 2 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months thereafter.
