Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well bortezomib works in treating patients with relapsed or refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphoma Drug: bortezomib Phase 2

Detailed Description:


  • Determine the response rates (complete response and partial response) and duration of response in patients with relapsed or refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma treated with bortezomib.
  • Determine the safety and tolerability of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label 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 disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 1 month and then at least every 3 months for 2 years or until disease progression.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-25 patients will be accrued for this study.
