RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carmustine, cytarabine, etoposide, and melphalan, work in different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining rituximab and combination chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining rituximab with combination chemotherapy followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Biological: rituximab Drug: carmustine Drug: cytarabine Drug: etoposide Drug: melphalan Procedure: autologous bone marrow transplantation Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation||Phase 2|
- Determine the levels of soluble CD20 antigen (sCD20) in the blood before and after treatment with rituximab and carmustine, cytarabine, etoposide, and melphalan followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in patients with CD20-positive B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
- Correlate the effect of changes in levels of sCD20 with clinical outcomes in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the response rate in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the event-free survival of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive rituximab IV over approximately 3-4 hours once weekly for 2 weeks followed 1 week later by hematopoietic stem cell or bone marrow harvest.
Patients then receive a third dose of rituximab IV over approximately 3-4 hours on day -7 or -6. Patients also receive high-dose chemotherapy comprising carmustine IV on day -6, cytarabine IV and etoposide IV twice daily on days -5 to -2, and melphalan IV on day -1. Patients undergo autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation on day 0.
Patients who have less than a complete remission at day 100 post-transplantation receive 4 additional doses of rituximab IV over approximately 3-4 hours once weekly for 4 weeks.
Patients are followed at day 100, at 1 year, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study.

|Arm 1||Biological: rituximab Drug: carmustine Drug: cytarabine Drug: etoposide Drug: melphalan Procedure: autologous bone marrow transplantation Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation|
- evaluation of the relationship between levels of sCD20 in the blood of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma pre and post rituximab/BEAM/autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation (PBPCT) as they relate to clinical outcomes. [ Time Frame: pre and post transplant ]To evaluate levels of soluble CD20 antigen (sCD20) in the blood of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma pre and post rituximab/BEAM/autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT), and to examine the effect of changes in levels of sCD20 with clinical outcomes.
