Primary Objective

1. To evaluate the safety profile of Bevacizumab (Bevacizumab™)- Rituximab (Rituxan®)-CHOP (RA-CHOP) in patients with newly diagnosed mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

Secondary Objectives

  1. To evaluate the response rate and time to disease progression of the RA-CHOP regimen in patients with newly diagnosed MCL.
  2. To prospectively characterize the angiogenic profiles of MCL patients during RA-CHOP treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • effect of bevacizumab + CHOP-rituximab on untreated mantle cell lymphoma [ Time Frame: duration of study ]

Estimated Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: November 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Bevacizumab
    15 mg/kg on day 1 of each of 6 cycles
Detailed Description:

Bevacizumab administered at 15 mg/kg on day 1 of each of 6 cycles

Rituximab administered 375 mg/m2 on day 3 of each of 6 cycles (with usual premedications)

Standard CHOP chemotherapy administered on day 3 every 21 days (full dose) for 6 cycles of treatment

Once completed six cycles of therapy (~18 weeks), patients will be evaluated every 3 months for the first year post treatment, then every 6 months until disease progression or death for years 2 through 5 post treatment. Patients who have disease progression will be contacted every 6 months until death to assess for survival status.
