Bortezomib in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin's Lymphoma

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00082966
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 17, 2004
Last Update Posted : December 4, 2015

National Cancer Institute (NCI)

Brief Summary:
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of bortezomib in treating patients who have relapsed or refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adult Lymphocyte Depletion Hodgkin Lymphoma Adult Mixed Cellularity Hodgkin Lymphoma Adult Nodular Sclerosis Hodgkin Lymphoma Recurrent Adult Hodgkin Lymphoma Drug: 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin/bortezomib Phase 2

Detailed Description:


I. To evaluate the efficacy of bortezomib in patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma using overall response rate as the primary efficacy endpoint.

II. To assess time to progression and 2-year overall survival after bortezomib therapy.

III. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of bortezomib in patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 8 courses in the absence of rapid disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months for 2 years.
