Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the treatment of Alemtuzumab in combination with CHOP(cyclophosphamide,doxorubicin,vincristine and prednisolone) are effective as first line treatment in patients with peripheral T-cell lymphoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma Drug: Alemtuzumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL) are more common in Asia than in Europe and United States (17-40% vs. 5-10%). Most studies reported a poorer prognosis for PTCL compared to B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL).

CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone) is currently regarded as a standard chemotherapy regimen for patients with newly diagnosed NHL.

Alemtuzumab (Campath-1H) is a humanized monoclonal antibody that targets CD52, a cell surface protein present at high density on most normal and malignant B and T lymphocytes.Malignant T cells express particularly high numbers of CD52 cell surface markers (approximately 500,000 molecules/lymphocytes),T-cell malignancies may thus be particularly responsive to alemtuzumab.

As the response rate tend to be higher in patients newly diagnosed with PTCL, this study evaluates the efficacy of alemtuzumab in combination with CHOP administered as up-front therapy in patients newly diagnosed with PTCL in terms of response rate and overall survival.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the effectiveness of alemtuzumab given in combination with CHOP in terms of the rates of objective response rate (ORR:complete remission[CR] and
  2. partial remission[PR]),progressive disease-free(PFS) and overall survivals(OS)
  3. in patients newly diagnosed with PTCL.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the safety profiles of alemtuzumab given in combination with CHOP
