  Purpose

Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of 506U78 in treating patients with recurrent or refractory hematologic cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

Recurrent Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Recurrent Childhood Lymphoblastic Lymphoma
T-cell Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Drug: nelarabine
Drug: methotrexate
Drug: cytarabine
Drug: therapeutic hydrocortisone

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Early marrow CR plus PR rate at day 21 [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CR is defined by an M1 marrow which requires blast counts below 5%. PR is defined by an M2 marrow which requires blast counts below 25%.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Remission duration [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • 6 month cumulative event-free survival [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 148
Study Start Date: June 1997
Primary Completion Date: January 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I

GROUP 1: Patients receive a 1 hour infusion of compound 506U78 daily for 5 days in the absence of neurologic toxicity. The course repeats every 21 days. If a first relapse T-cell ALL study of higher priority is not open, then the patient may continue to receive the drug every 21 days for a maximum of 2 years provided that the patient has achieved a second complete response.

GROUPS 2 and 4: Patients receive compound 506U78 every 21 days for a maximum of 2 years, in the absence of disease progression. After 3 courses a patient may be given CNS prophylaxis with triple intrathecal therapy (TIT), consisting of methotrexate, cytarabine and hydrocortisone after consultation with study coordinator. TIT should be given every 12 weeks.

GROUP 3: Patients receive compound 506U78 every 21 days for a maximum of 2 years, in the absence of disease progression. TIT will be given on day 1 of weeks 1-4, 6, 9 and every 6 weeks for 12 weeks, and then every 9 weeks thereafter. This stratum is open.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the response rate to compound 506U78 (2-amino-9-b-D-arabinofuranosyl-6-methoxy-9H-purine) administered as a 1 hour infusion daily for 5 days in patients with recurrent T-cell malignancies.

II. Determine the toxicities of compound 506U78 in this group of patients. III. Correlate the biochemical pharmacology of compound 506U78 (e.g., ara-G nucleotides in leukemic blasts and CSF concentrations) with clinical response.

IV. Determine the impact of compound 506U78 therapy on survival and duration of response of patients with recurrent T-cell malignancies.

OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to disease characteristics: Group 1: T-cell ALL or NHL in first relapse (greater than 25% bone marrow blasts, with or without concomitant extramedullary relapse other than CNS); Group 2: T-cell ALL or NHL in second or later relapse (greater than 25% bone marrow blasts, with or without concomitant extramedullary relapse other than CNS); Group 3: T-cell ALL or NHL with positive bone marrow and CSF (greater than 5% bone marrow blasts and CNS 2 or 3 involvement); Group 4: Extramedullary relapse and less than 25% blasts in the bone marrow (excluding isolated CNS relapse)

GROUP 1: Patients receive a 1 hour infusion of compound 506U78 daily for 5 days in the absence of neurologic toxicity. The course repeats every 21 days. If a first relapse T-cell ALL study of higher priority is not open, then the patient may continue to receive the drug every 21 days for a maximum of 2 years provided that the patient has achieved a second complete response.

GROUPS 2 and 4: Patients receive compound 506U78 every 21 days for a maximum of 2 years, in the absence of disease progression. After 3 courses a patient may be given CNS prophylaxis with triple intrathecal therapy (TIT), consisting of methotrexate, cytarabine and hydrocortisone after consultation with study coordinator. TIT should be given every 12 weeks.

GROUP 3: Patients receive compound 506U78 every 21 days for a maximum of 2 years, in the absence of disease progression. TIT will be given on day 1 of weeks 1-4, 6, 9 and every 6 weeks for 12 weeks, and then every 9 weeks thereafter. This stratum is open.
