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 lomustine, etoposide, cyclophosphamide, and procarbazine in treating patients who have AIDS-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Biological: filgrastim Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: etoposide Drug: lomustine Drug: procarbazine hydrochloride||Phase 2|
- Determine the objective response rate, response duration, and survival of patients with AIDS-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with lomustine, etoposide, cyclophosphamide, and procarbazine.
- Determine the feasibility of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the clinical toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Assess the quality of life of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the impact of this regimen on the underlying HIV infection in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral lomustine on day 1 (course 1 only), oral etoposide on days 1-3, and oral cyclophosphamide and oral procarbazine on days 22-26. Patients may also receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously on days 5-21 and 28-42. Treatment repeats every 6 weeks for 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, on days 1 and 22 of each course, at day 84, and then every 3 months for 1 year.
Patients are followed at day 84 and then every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 66 patients (22 in the United States and 44 in Africa) will be accrued for this study within 3-4 years.
