  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Combining radiation therapy with chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy used to kill tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy plus radiation therapy in treating patients with refractory or relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Determine the overall objective response. CR rate [as measured from the start of ICE, (or high dose CTX) to the end of transplant for those who receive it, or the end of ICE for those who do not].Complete response (CR): No evidence of Hodgkin's disease determined clinically, radiologically or pathologically when indicated


Enrollment: 118
Study Start Date: August 1998
Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I
(0-1 adverse prognostic factors): Patients receive ifosfamide by 24 hour infusion on day 2. Carboplatin is administered on day 2. Etoposide IV is administered once daily on days 1-3. Patients then receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously or IV on days 5-12. Patients receive another course of ICE chemotherapy 2-3 weeks after the first course.
Biological: filgrastim
Experimental: Arm II
(2 adverse prognostic factors): Patients receive the first course of ICE as in Arm I
Biological: filgrastim
Experimental: Arm III
Arm III (3 adverse prognostic factors): Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV daily for 2 days, then G-CSF beginning on day 4 until blood stem cells are collected
Biological: filgrastim Drug: carboplatin Drug: carmustine Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: cytarabine Drug: etoposide Drug: ifosfamide Drug: melphalan Procedure: bone marrow ablation with stem cell support Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation Radiation: radiation therapy
