RATIONALE: Immunotoxins such as denileukin diftitox can locate cancer cells and kill them without harming normal cells. This may be an effective treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of denileukin diftitox in treating patients who have non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that has not responded to previous treatment.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Biological: denileukin diftitox||Phase 2|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the objective response rate in patients with previously treated stage I, II, III, or IV low- or intermediate-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with denileukin diftitox. II. Determine the time to progression, duration of remission, and time to treatment failure in patients after treatment with this therapy. III. Determine the toxicity of this therapy in these patients. IV. Correlate the results of the inteleukin-2 receptor assay with treatment outcomes in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to interleukin-2 receptor classification (positive vs negative). Patients receive immunotoxin therapy with denileukin diftitox IV over 15-60 minutes on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 2-6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 33 patients will be accrued for the interleukin-2 (IL-2) receptor-positive stratum and a total of 11-44 patients will be accrued for the IL-2 receptor-negative stratum.
