Campath-1H and EPOCH to Treat Non-Hodgkin's T- and NK-Cell Lymphomas
Pilot Trial of Alemtuzumab and Dose-Adjusted Epoch in Chemotherapy Naive Aggressive T and NK-Cell Lymphomas

Background:

The paradigm of combining therapeutic agents with non-overlapping toxicities for the treatment of malignancy produces clinical remissions and cures in a number of tumor types.

A new class of agents, humanized and chimerized monoclonal antibodies, typically have little or no hematopoietic toxicity and can be readily combined with full doses of cytotoxic chemotherapy. It has become clear that in certain lymphomas and breast cancers, the combination of monoclonal antibodies and chemotherapy improves response rate and the quality of the response compared with that achieved by treatment with either agent alone.

The clinical outcome for patients with T-cell non-Hodgkin s lymphoma is significantly inferior to the outcome of patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin s lymphoma. In most reports less than 20% of patients with T cell lymphoid malignancies remain free of disease at 5 years.

Objectives:

Determine the toxicity of Alemtuzumab and EPOCH chemotherapy in untreated CD52-expressing T and NK lymphoid malignancies.

Determine the maximum tolerated dose of Alemtuzumab administered in combination with EPOCH chemotherapy.

Determine in a preliminary fashion the anti-tumor activity of the combination of Alemtuzumab and EPOCH chemotherapy.

Eligibility:

CD52-expressing lymphoid malignancy.

Patients with chemotherapy naive aggressive T & NK lymphomas. Patients with alk-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma and patients with T cell precursor disease are not eligible.

Age greater than or equal to 17 years.

Adequate organ function, unless impairment due to respective organ involvement by tumor.

No active symptomatic ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction or congestive heart. failure within the past year.

HIV negative.

Not pregnant or nursing.

Design:

Three dose levels of Alemtuzumab will be evaluated to determine the toxicity profile and in a preliminary fashion the antitumor activity of the combination with Dose-Adjusted EPOCH.

Three dose levels of Alemtuzumab will be explored, in cohorts of three to six patients each. Patients will receive either 30, 60, or 90 mg of Alemtuzumab on day 1 of therapy, followed by dose-adjusted EPOCH chemotherapy days 1-5.

  • ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA:

CD52-expressing lymphoid malignancy, confirmed by pathology or flow cytometry staff of the Hematopathology Section, Laboratory of Pathology, NCI. Patients with T & NK cell malignancy without accessible tissue for flow cytometry analysis may be treated on this study.

Patients with chemotherapy naive aggressive T & NK lymphomas, including but not limited to peripheral T cell lymphoma (nos), gamma-delta hepatosplenic T cell lymphoma, subcutaneous panniculitis-like T cell, NK-T cell lymphoma confirmed by pathology or flow cytometry staff of the Hematopathology Section, Laboratory of Pathology, NCI. Patients with alk-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma and patients with T cell precursor disease are not eligible.

Age greater than or equal to 17 years.

Laboratory tests: Creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 mg/dL or creatinine clearance greater than or equal to 60 ml/min; bilirubin less than 2.0 mg/dl unless due to Gilbert's, AST and ALT less than or equal to 3 times ULN (AST and ALT is less than or equal to 6 times ULN for patients on hyperalimentation for whom these abnormalities are felt to be due to the hyperalimentation) and; ANC is greater than or equal to 1000/mm(3), platelet greater than or equal to 75,000/mm(3); unless impairment due to respective organ involvement by tumor.

No active symptomatic ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction or congestive heart failure within the past year.

HIV negative, because of the unknown effects of combined therapy with chemotherapy and an immunosuppressive agent on HIV progression.

Signed informed consent.

Willing to use contraception.

Not pregnant or nursing, because of the unknown effects of Alemtuzumab on the developing fetus and infant.

No serious underlying medical condition or infection that would contraindicate treatment. Patients with CNS involvement are eligible for treatment on this study.
