  Purpose

This phase II trial studies how well giving brentuximab vedotin before autologous stem cell transplant works in treating patients with Hodgkin lymphoma. Monoclonal antibodies, such as brentuximab vedotin, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate of salvage brentuximab vedotin treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma before autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation [ Time Frame: 21 days after completion of last course of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The study will utilize a Simon two-stage optimal design. Response rates will be calculated as the percent of evaluable patients that have confirmed complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) by radiographic response including CT and/or PET scans, and exact 95% confidence intervals will be calculated for this estimate. Time to response, duration of response, and survival will be estimated using the product-limit method of Kaplan and Meier.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety, toxicity, and tolerability of brentuximab vedotin as a salvage regimen as determined by incidence of adverse events and lab abnormalities [ Time Frame: Through 21 days after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Toxicity will be assessed using the National Institute of Health-National Cancer Institute (NIH-NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), Version 4.0. Toxicity information recorded will include the type, severity, and the probable association with the study regimen. Tables will be constructed to summarize the observed incidence by severity and type of toxicity.

  • Stem cell mobilization results of patients receiving brentuximab vedotin as salvage therapy for patients that are proceeding to autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation [ Time Frame: 60 days after completion of last course of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Potential changes in Hodgkin lymphoma biological markers of patients treated with brentuximab vedotin [ Time Frame: 21 days after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • PFS defined as the time from first treatment day (post AHCT) until objective or symptomatic relapse or death as a result of lymphoma or acute toxicity of treatment [ Time Frame: Assessed for up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessed by Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and 95% confidence intervals will be calculated using Greenwood's formula.

  • OS defined as the time from first treatment day (post AHCT) until death [ Time Frame: Assessed for up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessed by Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and 95% confidence intervals will be calculated using Greenwood's formula.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. The primary objective of this study is to determine the activity of salvage brentuximab vedotin in Hodgkin lymphoma prior to autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, as measured by overall response rate (ORR).

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To describe the safety, toxicity, and tolerability of brentuximab vedotin as a salvage regimen.

II. To summarize the stem cell mobilization results of patients receiving brentuximab vedotin as salvage therapy (e.g., total cluster of differentiation (CD)34+ cell yield, number of apheresis days, proportion of patients who achieve >= 3 x 10^6 CD34+ cells/kg).

III. To evaluate potential changes in Hodgkin lymphoma biological markers of patients treated with brentuximab vedotin as first line salvage therapy.

IV. To examine and characterize the outcomes of patients who receive brentuximab vedotin as first line salvage followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHCT) (e.g., toxicity, 2-year progression free survival [PFS], overall survival [OS], relapse-progression incidence and non-relapse mortality rate [NRM])

OUTLINE:

Patients receive brentuximab vedotin intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 4 courses.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 21 days.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   11 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically documented or cytologically confirmed Hodgkin lymphoma with CD 30 expression
  • Patients must have absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1000/uL; Neupogen (filgrastim) can be given prior to start of SGN-35 (brentuximab vedotin) and during SGN-35 treatment to achieve target ANC >= 1000/uL
  • Patients must have platelets (Plts) >= 50,000/uL; platelet transfusion can be given prior to the start of SGN-35 and during SGN-35 treatment to achieve a target plt >= 50,000/uL
  • Patients must have measurable disease > 1.5 cm evidenced by computed tomography (CT) scan of the neck/chest/abdomen(abd)/pelvis or CT/positron emission tomography (PET) scans
  • Patient must be either primary refractory to one frontline induction therapy or relapsed after one frontline induction therapy; patients who do not achieve complete remission after induction therapy are also eligible
  • Patients cannot have had a second line salvage treatment (chemotherapy, biologic agents, investigational drugs, or radiation) or have had an autologous or allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; patients can have had mixed frontline therapy such as 2-4 cycles of ABVD followed by 2-4 cycles of BEACOPP as long as the induction chemotherapy is not more than 8 cycles in total length
  • Radiation use as part of induction regimen or consolidation (within 90 days after completion of induction chemotherapy) is allowed
