RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of bortezomib in treating patients who have untreated or relapsed Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Drug: bortezomib||Phase 2|
- Determine the efficacy of bortezomib, in terms of response rate, in patients with previously untreated or relapsed Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the time to progression, stable disease duration, and response duration in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed at 4 weeks. Patients with complete or partial response or stable disease are followed every 3 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-25 patients will be accrued for this study within 1.5-2 years.

|Official Title:||A Phase II Study Of PS-341 (NSC 681239) In Patients With Untreated Or Relapsed Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia|
|Study Start Date :||August 2002|
|Primary Completion Date :||March 2006|
|Study Completion Date :||December 2009|
- Response rate [ Time Frame: 4 years ]To assess the efficacy (response rate) of PS-341 given as a bolus intravenous injection twice weekly for two out of every 3 weeks in the treatment of a population of patients with previously untreated or relapsed Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia
- Toxicity [ Time Frame: 4 years ]To assess the toxicity of PS-341 in patients with Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia as well as time to progression, stable disease duration and, if responses are observed, response duration.
- Cytogenetics and genome profiling [ Time Frame: 4 years ]To assess bone marrow and peripheral blood for cytogenetics and genome profiling by microarray in patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
