RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving rituximab together with combination chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving rituximab together with combination chemotherapy works in treating patients with stage II, stage III, or stage IV diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Biological: filgrastim Biological: rituximab Drug: carboplatin Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride Drug: etoposide Drug: ifosfamide Drug: prednisone Drug: vincristine||Phase 2|
- Determine the 2-year progression-free survival (PFS) rate after treatment with rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide (R-ICE) in patients with bulky stage II or stage III or IV diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who remain positron emission tomography (PET)-positive after 3 courses of rituximab, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin hydrochloride, and prednisone.
- Determine the proportion of mid-treatment PET-positive patients who become PET-negative after 4 courses of R-ICE.
- Determine the PFS of mid-treatment PET-negative patients treated with these regimens.
- Determine the overall survival of patients treated with these regimens.
- Determine the toxicity of these regimens in these patients.
Rituximab and Combination Chemotherapy (R-CHOP: R= Rituximab, C= Cyclophosphamide, H= Doxorubicin Hydrochloride (Hydroxydaunomycin), O= Vincristine Sulfate (Oncovin), P= Prednisone): Patients receive rituximab IV, cyclophosphamide IV, doxorubicin hydrochloride IV, and vincristine IV on day 1, and oral prednisone once daily on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients undergo fludeoxyglucose F18 positron emission tomography (PET) scanning and conventional restaging during course 3. Based on the PET results, patients are assigned to 1 of 2 treatment groups.
- Group I (PET negative): Patients receive 2 more courses of R-CHOP as above in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
- Group II (PET positive): Patients receive Rituximab 375 mg/m2 IV Day 1, Ifosfamide 5000 mg/m2 IV over 24 hours Day 2, Carboplatin AUC 5 (max: 800 mg) IV Day 2, Etoposide 100 mg/m2 IV Days 1, 2, 3 (R-ICE), Mesna 5000 mg/m2 IV over 24 hours Day 2, and Filgrastim 5 mcg/kg/day subcutaneous (SC) Day 4 until absolute neutrophil count (ANC) recovery every 14 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for 10 years from the date of study entry.
ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients were accrued for this study.

- 2-year Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Assessed every 4 months if patient is < 2 years from study entry, every 6 months if patient is 2-5 years from study entry, then every 12 months if patient is 5-10 years from study entry. ]2-year progression-free survival is defined as the probability of patients who remain alive and progression free at 2 years from study entry. The method of Kaplan and Meier (1958) was used to estimate PFS.
- 5-year Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Every 4 months if patient is < 2 years from study entry, every 6 months if patient is 2-5 years from study entry, then every 12 months if patient is 5-10 years from study entry. ]5-year overall survival is defined as the probability of patients who remain alive at 5 years from study entry. The method of Kaplan and Meier (1958) was used to estimate overall survival.
