Ifosfamide, Teniposide, and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Relapsed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of ifosfamide, teniposide, and paclitaxel in treating patients who have relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase I/II Study of Mesna, Ifosfamide, Teniposide and Weekly Taxol (MITTen) in Relapsed Lymphoma|
|Study Start Date:||February 1999|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||October 2002 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the toxicities associated with the combination of ifosfamide, teniposide, and weekly paclitaxel in patients with relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
- Evaluate response rate and time to disease progression in these patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study of teniposide. Patients are stratified according to whether they proceed to stem cell transplant or not.
Patients receive ifosfamide IV over 1-2 hours on days 1-3 every 3 weeks, teniposide IV over 2 hours on day 1 every 3 weeks, and paclitaxel IV over 1 hour weekly. Patients who are not candidates for stem cell transplant continue treatment for 120 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients proceeding to stem cell transplant continue treatment for 36 days. Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) may be harvested at this time if autologous transplant is planned. Transplant patients may then continue with chemotherapy or proceed to autologous or allogeneic PBSC transplant.
Cohorts of 3-5 patients receive escalating doses of teniposide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 3 of 5 patients experience dose limiting toxicities.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-50 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.
