RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining cytarabine and mitoxantrone in treating patients who have recurrent or refractory leukemia or lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Leukemia Lymphoma||Biological: sargramostim Drug: cytarabine Drug: mitoxantrone hydrochloride||Phase 2|
- Determine non-hematologic toxic effects of high-dose cytarabine and high-dose mitoxantrone in patients with recurrent or refractory leukemia or lymphoma.
- Determine the in vitro T/NK lymphocyte proliferative responses to patient's leukemia/lymphoma cells before and after treatment with this regimen.
OUTLINE: Patients receive high-dose cytarabine IV over 1 hour on days 1-5 and high-dose mitoxantrone IV over 15-30 minutes on day 5. Patients also receive sargramostim (GM-CSF) subcutaneously beginning on day 14 and continuing until blood counts recover.
Patients who achieve at least stable disease or a response may receive a second course beginning at least 14 days after the first course is completed.
Patients are followed for 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-30 patients will be accrued for this study within approximately 2-3 years.
