RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Bone marrow transplantation may allow doctors to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells. It is not yet known whether high dose chemotherapy plus bone marrow transplantation is more effective than high dose chemotherapy alone for intermediate- or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of high dose chemotherapy with or without bone marrow transplantation in treating patients who have intermediate- or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Drug: CHOP regimen Drug: carmustine Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: cytarabine Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride Drug: etoposide Drug: melphalan Drug: prednisone Drug: vincristine sulfate Procedure: autologous bone marrow transplantation Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation||Phase 3|
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the value of early intensification with autologous bone marrow transplantation or stem cell support in patients with poor prognosis intermediate or high grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified by age (under 50 vs 50 and over), bone marrow involvement (yes vs no), and country. All patients receive cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and vincristine on day 1 and prednisone on days 1-5. Courses repeat every 21 days. Patients receive a minimum of 6 courses of treatment in the absence of disease progression and unacceptable toxicity. Arm I: Patients receive carmustine IV over 2 hours on day 1 in week 9 or 10. Etoposide and cytarabine IV are administered over 30 minutes on days 2-5. Melphalan IV is administered over 5 minutes on day 6. Patients receive cryopreserved bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells on day 7. Arm II: Patients continue conventional therapy. Patients are followed at 8-9 weeks and 6 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue 500 patients.
