Biomarkers in Blood Samples From Patients With HIV Infection and Stage III or Stage IV Hodgkin Lymphoma Undergoing Chemotherapy
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood in the laboratory from patients undergoing treatment with HIV infection and Hodgkin lymphoma may help doctors learn more about the effects of therapy on HIV.
PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in blood samples from patients with HIV infection and stage III or stage IV Hodgkin lymphoma undergoing chemotherapy.
Genetic: DNA analysis
Genetic: RNA analysis
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Quantification of HIV-1 Reservoirs in HIV-Positive Persons Receiving Response-Adapted Therapy for Stage III-IV Hodgkin Lymphoma: A Companion Protocol to SWOG Protocol S0816 (AMC-073)|
- Change in viral load from baseline to each subsequent time point [ Time Frame: Baseline, after each cycle of treatment, restaging, treatment completion, year 1, year 2, study discontinuation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Time frame for outcome measures dependent on study calendar for parent protocol, S0816, which varies by subject's PET scan status.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
|Study Start Date:||June 2011|
|Study Completion Date:||January 2013|
|Primary Completion Date:||January 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To quantify HIV-1 persistence in prospectively collected samples from patients on suppressive antiretroviral therapy undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Blood samples are collected before, during, and after treatment for lymphoma for HIV-1 RNA levels using standard and single copy assays and HIV-1 DNA quantification (peripheral blood mononuclear cells).
After completion of treatment, patients are followed up periodically for up to 2 years.
