Current therapies for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma provide limited benefit to the patient. The anti-cancer properties of Antineoplaston therapy suggest that it may prove beneficial in the treatment of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
PURPOSE: This study is being performed to determine the effects (good and bad) that Antineoplaston therapy has on patients with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Non Hodgkin Lymphoma||Drug: Antineoplaston therapy (Atengenal + Astugenal)||Phase 2|
- Determine the safety and possible effectiveness of antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have failed high-dose chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation.
- Describe the response to, tolerance to, and side effects of this regimen in these patients.
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma patients receive gradually escalating doses of intravenous Antineoplaston therapy (Atengenal + Astugenal) until the maximum tolerated dose is reached. Treatment continues up to 12 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
- To determine the efficacy of Antineoplaston therapy in patients with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, as measured by an objective response to therapy (complete response, partial response or stable disease).
- To determine the safety and tolerance of Antineoplaston therapy in patients with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
- To determine objective response, tumor size is measured utilizing physical examination, radiologic studies, and bone marrow biopsies as necessary, performed every 8 weeks for the first two years, every 3 months for the third and fourth years, every 6 months for the 5th and sixth years, and annually thereafter.

|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 in Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma|
|Actual Study Start Date :||October 13, 1997|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||February 2, 2007|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||February 2, 2007|
Experimental: Antineoplaston therapy
Antineoplaston therapy (Atengenal + Astugenal) by IV infusion every four hours for at least 12 months. Study subjects receive increasing dosages of Atengenal and Astugenal until the maximum tolerated dose is reached.
Drug: Antineoplaston therapy (Atengenal + Astugenal)
Patients with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma will receive Antineoplaston therapy (Atengenal + Astugenal).
The daily doses of A10 and AS2-1 are divided into six infusions, which are given at 4-hourly intervals. Each infusion starts with infusion of A10 and is immediately followed by infusion of AS2-1.
Other Name: A10 (Atengenal); AS2-1 (Astugenal)
- Number of Participants With an Objective Response, Stable Disease, or Progressive Disease [ Time Frame: 5 months ]An objective response is defined as a complete or partial response. A complete response is complete disappearance of all tumor by physical examination and radiographic studies and bone marrow involvement, if appropriate, for a minimum of four weeks. A partial response is a > 50% reduction in the sum of the products of the greatest perpendicular diameters of all measurable lesions compared to the corresponding baseline evaluation, for a minimum of four weeks. Stable disease indicates < 50% change in the sum of the products of the greatest perpendicular diameters of all measurable lesions compared to the corresponding baseline evaluation, for a minimum of twelve weeks. Progressive Disease is a > 50% increase in the sum of the products of the greatest perpendicular diameters of all measurable lesions compared to the corresponding baseline evaluation, for a minimum of four weeks.
