This aim of this study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of combining a single course of Yttrium 90 Ibritumomab Tiuxetan, a radiolabeled monoclonal antibody ( Zevalin ), with high-dose BEAM chemotherapy and autologous peripheral stem cell transplantation in patients with relapsed, refractory, or transformed Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Drug: Yttrium 90 Ibritumomab Tiuxetan ( Zevalin ) Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II Non-Randomized Study Combining Yttrium 90 Ibritumomab Tiuxetan (Zevalin) With High-Dose Chemotherapy Prior to Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Relapsed, Refractory, or Transformed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival Data, adverse events, molecular response

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: March 2007
Detailed Description:
Relapse rates after chemotherapy for relapsed, refractory or transformed Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL)remain very high. NHL is a radiosensitive tumor. We hypothesize that targeted radioimmunotherapy combined with high-dose chemotherapy may increase response and survival rates in a safe and reliable manner.
