Antineoplaston Therapy in Treating Patients With Low-Grade Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Antineoplastons are naturally-occurring substances that may also be made in the laboratory. Antineoplastons may inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well antineoplaston therapy works in treating patients with low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Antineoplaston A10 and AS2-1 in Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Low Grade|
- Response rate based on tumor measurements taken at 12 weeks [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Survival at 1, 2, and 5 years from the start of treatment [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||March 1996|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the safety and possible effectiveness of antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 in patients with serious or immediately life-threatening low grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
- Describe the response, tolerance to, and side effects of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open label study.
Patients receive gradually escalating doses of intravenous antineoplaston A10 and antineoplaston AS2-1 6 times per day until the maximum tolerated dose is reached. Treatment continues for at least 12 months in the absence of disease progression and unacceptable toxicity. After 12 months, patients with responding or stable disease may continue treatment.
Tumors are measured every 8 weeks for the first 6 months, every 3 months for the first 2 years, every 6 months for years 3 and 4, and yearly for years 5 and 6.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study.
