The purpose of this study is to determine how efficient the combination of rituximab, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone (R-CVP) is in the treatment of stage I or II non-conjunctival ocular adnexal MALT lymphoma (OAML).

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: rituximab, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Open-labeled, Multicenter Phase II Study of Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Vincristine, and Prednisolone (R-CVP) Chemotherapy in Patients With Non-conjunctival Ocular Adnexal MALT Lymphoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • complete response rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Estimated Enrollment: 33
Study Start Date: July 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2016
Primary Completion Date: August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: R-CVP
6 cycles of R-CVP followed by 2 cycles of rituximab
Drug: rituximab, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone
6 cycles of R-CVP followed by 2 cycles of rituximab
Other Name: 6 cycles of R-CVP followed by 2 cycles of rituximab

Detailed Description:
The treatment of stage I or II OAML is mainly composed of radiotherapy because chemotherapy including cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone (CVP) did not show the acceptable response rate compared with radiotherapy. However, radiotherapy for this disease can cause many complications of eyes. This clinical trial was designed to examine the efficacy of R-CVP combination therapy as a first-line treatment for stage I or II non-conjunctival OAML aiming to avoid radiation hazard and increase the efficacy of CVP chemotherapy.
