Brief Summary:

The protocol is to assess the overall response rate (complete response and partial response) of treatment with non-pegylated liposomal doxorubicin at a dose of 50 mg / m² in combination with dexamethasone in immunocompetent adult patients with primary brain lymphoma large B-cell refractory or relapsed after first-line treatment MTXHD and high-dose cytarabine, excluding strict eye lymphomas.

This is a Phase II, open, prospective, multicenter, non-comparative with direct individual benefit.

    Answer, whether complete or partial, according to the International Primary CNS Lymphoma Collaborative Group (IPCG) (ASH 2004) after two cycles of treatment (4 infusions MYOCET ®).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Tolerance at treatment [ Time Frame: after each cycle and until the end of follow ]
    Tolerance, assessed according to the criteria of the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC) version (version 4.03) after administration of each cycle, overall survival, progression-free and disease-free event for complete responses.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient with cerebral lymphoma B cell refractory or relapsed within 12 months after first-line chemotherapy with high-dose methotrexate (1.5 g / m²) and high dose cytarabine (2g / m²) and / or radiotherapy or autologous, or patient with an indication against these treatments.

  • Prior treatment MYOCET ® or other anthracycline
  • Active infection
  • Surgery large (more than 3 days hospitalization) within 28 days before enrollment in the study, except for a diagnostic neurosurgical
