|Brief Title ICMJE||Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Rituximab in Treating Older Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma|
|Official Title ICMJE||Randomised Study Comparing 6 And 8 Cycles Of Chemotherapy With CHOP ( Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine And Prednisone) At 14-Day Intervals (CHOP-14), Both With Or Without The Monoclonal Anti-CD20 Antibody Rituximab In Patients Aged 61 To 80 Years With Aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Monoclonal antibodies such as rituximab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without rituximab in treating aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying how well giving cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone together with or without rituximab works in treating older patients who have aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. (This trial is no longer randomized as of 6/2005).
OUTLINE: This is a randomized (randomized part of study completed as of 6/2005), open-label, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to participating center, value for serum lactic dehydrogenase (no greater than upper limit of normal [ULN] vs greater than ULN), bulky disease present (no vs yes), stage (I or II vs III or IV), general ECOG status of patient (0 or 1 vs 2), and age (61 to 70 vs 71-80). Patients are randomized to 1 of 4 treatment arms. Patients with CD20-negative lymphoma are randomized to arms I or II only.
In all arms, treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Beginning 3-6 weeks after completion of the last chemotherapy course, after complete recovery of bone marrow, and after complete remision of mucositis, patients with sites of initial bulky disease or extranodal involvement undergo radiotherapy 5 times a week for 4 weeks.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 1580 patients will be accrued for this study within 5 years.
