This study has been completed.

Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Identifier:
First received: November 1, 1999
Last updated: December 5, 2016
Last verified: December 2016

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effects of cladribine in previously treated or untreated patients with mantle cell lymphoma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: cladribine
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]

Enrollment: 51
Study Start Date: November 1996
Study Completion Date: December 2008
Primary Completion Date: April 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: cladribine
Patients receive cladribine (2-chlorodeoxyadenosine; 2-CdA) daily for 5 days every 4 weeks for a maximum of 6 courses; response is assessed after every 2 courses. Patients in complete remission or with stable disease discontinue treatment and are followed; those with disease progression at any time are removed from study. Patients are followed every 2 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 1 year, and annually for 2 years.
Drug: cladribine

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of cladribine (2-chlorodeoxyadenosine; 2-CdA) as treatment for mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) either as initial therapy or for relapsed/refractory disease. II. Determine by flow cytometry immunophenotyping of blood lymphocytes the number of patients with peripheral blood involvement at the time of diagnosis and compare the presence or absence of peripheral blood involvement with response data. III. Detect rearrangements involving the bcl-1 gene and immunoglobulin heavy chain locus by molecular techniques (e.g., polymerase chain reaction, Southern blotting, or in situ hybridization), and compare these results with immunohistochemical demonstration of bcl-1 protein expression. VI. Determine the proliferative rate of MCL by immunohistochemistry and DNA content flow cytometry. V. Summarize the toxic effects associated with this treatment.

OUTLINE: Patients receive cladribine (2-chlorodeoxyadenosine; 2-CdA) daily for 5 days every 4 weeks for a maximum of 6 courses; response is assessed after every 2 courses. Patients in complete remission or with stable disease discontinue treatment and are followed; those with disease progression at any time are removed from study. Patients are followed every 2 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 1 year, and annually for 2 years.
