S0410 Tandem Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Progressive or Recurrent Hodgkin's Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving chemotherapy with a peripheral stem cell transplant may allow more chemotherapy to be given so that more cancer cells are killed. Tandem (two) autologous stem cell transplants may be an effective treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well tandem stem cell transplantation works in treating patients with progressive or recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Procedure: autologous-autologous tandem hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
Radiation: radiation therapy

- 2-year Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: At day 60, then every 6 months for 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Measured from date of randomization to date of first observation of progressive disease, or death due to any cause
- Response Rate [ Time Frame: At day 60, then every 6 months for 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Complete Response(CR) is a complete disappearance of all disease with the exception of nodes. No new lesions. previously enlarged organs must have regressed and not be palpable. Bone marrow(BM) must be negative if positive at baseline. Normalization of markers. CR Unconfirmed (CRU) does not qualify for CR above, due to a residual nodal mass or an indeterminate BM. Partial Response(PR) is a 50% decrease in the sum of products of greatest diameters (SPD) for up to 6 identified dominant lesions, including spleenic and hepatic nodules from baseline. No new lesions and no increase in the size of liver, spleen or other nodes.
- Overall Survival [ Time Frame: At day 60, then every 6 months for 2 years, then annually for a total of 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Measured from date of registration to date of death due to any cause or last contact
- Number of Patients With Grade 3 Through Grade 5 Adverse Events That Are Related to Study Drug [ Time Frame: Assessed after cycle 1 high dose therapy, after cycle 2 high dose therapy, and at 1 month and 2 months after the second stem cell infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Adverse Events (AEs) are reported by the NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 3.0. For each patient, worst grade of each event type is reported. Grade 3 = Severe, Grade 4 = Life-threatening, Grade 5 = Fatal.

Experimental: High-dose therapy plus tandem transplant
Regimen consists of 2 cycles of high-dose therapy, each followed by stem cell infusion. Cycle 1 consists of high-dose melphalan followed by infusion of approximately 1.5 million cluster of differentiation 34 positive (CD34+) cells. Cycle 2 consists of either TBI-based or 1,3-bis(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea (BCNU)-based high-dose therapy followed by infusion of at least 2 million CD34+ cells.
150 mg/m^2 IV over 2 hours 4, 5, and 6 days before transplant.
Other Name: BCNUDrug: cyclophosphamide
100 mg/kg IV 2 days before transplant.Drug: etoposide
60 mg/kg IV over 4 hours 4 days before transplant.Drug: melphalan
150 mg/m^2 IV 1 day before transplant.Procedure: autologous-autologous tandem hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
2.0 x 10^6 CD34+ cells, beginning at least 24 hours after melphalan infusion.Radiation: radiation therapy
150 centigray (cGy) total body irradiation given b.i.d on days 5-8 before transplant.
Other Name: Total body irradiation (TBI)
- Determine the 2-year progression-free survival of patients with progressive or recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with tandem autologous stem cell transplantation (2 courses of high-dose therapy with autologous stem cell rescue).
- Determine the response rate in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
- Salvage therapy (for patients with relapsed disease after achieving a previous complete response): Patients receive at least 2 courses of salvage chemotherapy or radiotherapy. No more than 6 weeks later, patients proceed to autologous hematopoietic stem cell collection.
- Autologous hematopoietic stem cell collection: Patients undergo autologous hematopoietic stem cell collection. Patients with an inadequate number of collected stem cells are removed from the study.
- Pre-transplant salvage radiation: Patients with residual tumor greater than 5 cm after initial salvage therapy undergo involved-field radiotherapy. All patients then proceed to the first preparative regimen.
- First preparative regimen: Patients receive high-dose melphalan IV on day -1.
- First autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT): Patients undergo autologous SCT on day 0. At least 28 days later, patients proceed to second preparative regimen.
Second preparative regimen: Patients receive 1 of the following preparative regimens:
- Total-body irradiation (TBI)-based regimen: Patients undergo TBI twice daily on days -8 to -5. Patients also receive etoposide IV over 4 hours on day -4 and cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on day -2.
- Carmustine-based regimen: Patients receive carmustine IV over 2 hours on days -6 to -4, etoposide IV over 4 hours on day -4, and cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on day -2.
- Second autologous SCT: Patients undergo second autologous SCT on day 0. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 6 months for 2 years and then annually for up to 7 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 85 patients will be accrued for this study over 2 years.
