Official Title: Allogeneic Transplantation of Haematopoietic Stem Cells Following Non-myeloablative Conditioning With Melphalan, Fludarabine, Thiotepa, Rituximab and Ibritumomab Tiuxetan (Zevalin) in Patients With Aggressive Non-Hodgkin's B-cell Lymphoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • safety (toxicity, transplantation- and graft-related mortality) [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
  • response to treatment according to the Cheson's criteria (Cheson B, et al. JCO 25, 570, 2007). [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
  • overall survival [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
  • relapse rate [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
  • acute and chronic Graft-versus-Host Disease [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
  • haematological and immunological reconstitution, and chimerism. [ Time Frame: Post transplantation. Once weekly until day +100 and every 2 weeks from day +100. ]
  • the impact of Complete Clinical Response, determined by flow cytometry and PET, on progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
