|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study Evaluating the Efficacy of Gemcitabine, Carboplatin, and Dexamethasone and Rituximab for Previously Treated Lymphoid Malignancies|
- Ability to successfully deliver the investigational therapy without incurring the protocol suspension rules [ Time Frame: At 3-4 weeks after completion of study treatment ]
- Response rate compared to published response rates of patients treated with gemcitabine hydrochloride alone [ Time Frame: At baseline, day 1 of each course, and 3-4 weeks after completion of study treatment ]
|Study Start Date:||August 2003|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
In Group 1 (CD20-NEGATIVE LYMPHOMAS), patients receive gemcitabine hydrochloride intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8, carboplatin IV over 30-60 minutes on day 1, and dexamethasone orally (PO) on days 1-4. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
In Group 2 (CD20-POSITIVE LYMPHOMAS), patients receive treatment as in group I. Patients also receive rituximab IV on day 8. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: gemcitabine hydrochloride
Other Names:Drug: carboplatin
Other Names:Drug: dexamethasone
Other Names:Biological: rituximab
Given IV in Group 2 only (CD20-POSITIVE LYMPHOMAS)
I. To determine the feasibility and safety of Gemcitabine/Carboplatin/Dexamethasone with or without Rituximab in previously treated lymphoid malignancies (rituximab will only be evaluated in CD20 positive malignancies).
II. To determine the efficacy of the above regimen. III. To determine the ability to proceed to blood stem peripheral blood collection following the above regimens (the impact of above regimen on stem cell reserve).
IV. To determine remission duration.
OUTLINE: Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 treatment groups.
GROUP I: CD20-NEGATIVE LYMPHOMAS
GROUP II: CD20-POSITIVE LYMPHOMAS
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 3-4 weeks and then every 6 months for 5 years.
