  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage cancer cells. Bone marrow or peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy and kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation therapy plus bone marrow or peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have refractory or relapsed T-cell lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the toxicity of an intensive program of chemoradiotherapy followed by HLA identical related bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in patients with relapsed or refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Determine the response rate and disease free survival in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: HLA identical related donors undergo harvest of bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC).

Patients are assigned to one of two treatment groups based on prior radiation to abdomen or mediastinum:

  • Group A (prior radiation no greater than 2,000 cGy): Patients with complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) after completion of chemotherapy receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -6 and -5, followed by total body irradiation twice daily on days -4 to -1. Patients with minimal response after completion of chemotherapy receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -8 and -7, followed by etoposide IV over 30 hours beginning on day -6, followed by total body irradiation twice daily on days -4 to -1.
  • Group B (prior radiation greater than 2,000 cGy): Patients with CR or PR after completion of chemotherapy receive oral busulfan every 6 hours on days -7 to -4, followed by cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -3 and -2. Patients with minimal response after completion of chemotherapy receive oral busulfan every 6 hours on days -9 to -6, followed by cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -5 and -4, followed by etoposide IV over 30 hours beginning on day -3.
  • Both groups: Bone marrow or PBSC are reinfused on day 0. Patients with bulky nodal disease (greater than 5 cm) may undergo involved field radiotherapy two weeks before transplantation.

Patients are followed every month for 1 year.

Criteria

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Histologically proven relapsed or refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the following types:

    • Diffuse small lymphocytic/marginal zone
    • Grade I follicular small cleaved cell
    • Grade II follicular mixed cell
    • Diffuse small cleaved cell
    • Grade III follicular large cell
    • Diffuse mixed cell
    • Diffuse large cell
    • Immunoblastic large cell
  • HLA identical related donor available

    • Phenotypically HLA identical, MLC nonstimulatory donor eligible if no HLA identical related donor is available
  • Relapse following autologous bone marrow transplantation allowed if an HLA identical related donor is available
  • Eligible for total body irradiation
  • No active uncontrolled CNS disease NOTE: A new classification scheme for adult non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has been adopted by PDQ. The terminology of "indolent" or "aggressive" lymphoma will replace the former terminology of "low", "intermediate", or "high" grade lymphoma. However, this protocol uses the former terminology.
