RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of two regimens of combination chemotherapy in treating patients who have intermediate-grade or immunoblastic lymphoma.

Show Detailed Description
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||116 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||A Randomized Prospective Study of Early Intensification Versus Alternating Triple Therapy for Patients With Poor Prognosis Lymphoma|
|Study Start Date :||July 1995|
|Primary Completion Date :||February 2004|
|Study Completion Date :||February 2004|
Experimental: Arm I
3 courses of early intensification:
First course: Ifosfamide (IFF) IV continuously and Etoposide (VP-16) IV over 2 hours every 12 hours on days 1-3. Filgrastim (G-CSF) administered subcutaneously (SC) beginning on day 5 and continuing until blood counts recover then autologous peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) are harvested, selected for CD34 positive cells, and purged in vitro. If more than 5% of the WBC contains lymphoma cells after induction, then 2 courses of IFF and VP-16 are administered before PBSC harvest.
Second course: IFF IV continuously on days 1-3, mitoxantrone (DHAD) IV on day 1, and G-CSF SC as in first course.
Third course: Carmustine IV over 1 hour on day -6, ARA-C and VP-16 IV every 12 hours on days -5 to -2, and melphalan IV on day -1. PBSC are reinfused on day 0. G-CSF is administered SC beginning on day 0 and continuing until blood counts recover. Each course lasts 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Biological: Filgrastim (G-CSF)
Arm 1: Administered subcutaneously (SC) beginning on day 5 and continuing until blood counts recover through Course 1 then 2 courses administered before PBSC harvest and same regimen with Course 2, then daily with Day 0 of infusion.
