The standard chemotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma is called ABVD which is a combination of 4 chemotherapy drugs (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine). The number of cycles of ABVD chemotherapy Hodgkin lymphoma patients receive is about 4-6 cycles. In addition to the ABVD chemotherapy, patients with Hodgkin lymphoma will routinely receive radiation therapy. The use of chemotherapy and radiation may cause long term treatment related side effects such as heart problems and other cancers. Researchers are trying to find if combining ABVD chemotherapy with new drugs and reducing the number of ABVD chemotherapy cycles given is just as effective as the standard Hodgkin treatment.
Brentuximab vedotin is approved by the United States Food and Drug administration (FDA) for the treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma that has come back (relapsed). For this research study, the use of brentuximab vedotin in newly diagnosed Hodgkin lymphoma is considered investigational. Brentuximab vedotin is an antibody that also has a chemotherapy drug attached to it. Antibodies are proteins that are part of your immune system. They can stick to and attack specific targets on cells. The antibody part of the brentuximab vedotin sticks to a target called cluster of differentiation antigen 30 (CD30). CD30 is an important molecule on some cancer cells and some normal cells of the immune system.
The purpose of this research study is to see the effects of treatment with fewer cycles of the combination chemotherapy, ABVD, followed by the study drug brentuximab vedotin has on study participants and Hodgkins lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hodgkin Lymphoma, Adult||Drug: Brentuximab vedotin Drug: ABVD||Not Applicable|
This study is designed as a single arm pilot feasibility trial using an induction of 2-6 cycles of ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine) chemotherapy followed by 6 cycles of brentuximab vedotin (SGN-35) consolidation for previously untreated patients with stage I and II non-bulky Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL).
Feasibility will be determined by the percentage of patients who have no clinical evidence of HL, and achieve positron emission tomograph (PET) negative disease post brentuximab consolidation. We anticipate approximately 40 patients will be eligible across participating centers (including UNC, Mayo Clinic, and the UNC Cancer Network (UNCCN)) over a 2 year period. A future phase II study evaluating progression free survival (PFS) after ABVD followed by brentuximab vedotin will be considered feasible if ≥ 13 of 15 patients enrolled in this pilot trial become PET negative after brentuximab vedotin consolidation.

Single arm trial
Drug: Brentuximab vedotin
IV, 1.8mg/kg, every 3 weeks for 6 cycles.
Doxorubicin - 25mg/m2 IV over 3-5 minutes, Day 1 and 15, every 28 days, 2-6 cycles.
Bleomycin - 10u/m2 IV, Day 1 and 15, every 28 days, 2-6 cycles Vinblastine - 6mg/m2 IV over 3-5 minutes, Day 1 and 15, every 28 days, 2-6 cycles.

- Percentage of Patients With Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Negative Disease [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
Percentage of patients who convert to PET negative disease post consolidation. This is defined by PET with Deauville <=2.
The Deauville 5-point scoring system is a five-point scoring system for the Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) avidity of a Hodgkin's lymphoma or Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma tumor mass as seen on FDG Positron emission tomography:
Score 1: No uptake above the background Score 2: Uptake ≤ mediastinum Score 3: Uptake > mediastinum but ≤ liver Score 4: Uptake moderately increased compared to the liver at any site Score 5: Uptake markedly increased compared to the liver at any site Score X: New areas of uptake unlikely to be related to lymphoma
- Number of Participant Who Achieved a Complete Response [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Response criteria based on the International Workshop to standardize response criteria for malignant lymphomas. Complete Response is defined as complete disappearance of all detectable clinical evidence of disease and disease-related symptoms if present before therapy.
- Conversion Rate to Complete Response. Number of Participants Who Had a Partial Response Post ABVD Who Converted to a Complete Response. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Conversion rate to Complete Response after brentuximab vedotin in patients with partial response at the end of ABVD therapy. Response criteria based on the International Workshop to standardize response criteria for malignant lymphomas. Complete Response is defined as complete disappearance of all detectable clinical evidence of disease and disease-related symptoms if present before therapy. At least a 50% decrease in sum of the product of the diameters (SPD) of up to six of the largest dominant nodes or nodal masses. These nodes or masses should be selected according to all of the following: they should be clearly measurable in at least 2 perpendicular dimensions; if possible they should be from disparate regions of the body; and they should include mediastinal and retroperitoneal areas of disease whenever these sites are involved.
- Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]Defined as the time from ABVD treatment start until disease progression or death from any cause.
- Time to Progression [ Time Frame: 5 years ]Defined as the time from ABVD treatment initiation until the time of disease progression or death due to progressive disease.
- Number of Adverse Events Attributed to Brentuximab Vedotin With a Grade 3 or Higher [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Number of adverse events attributed to Brentuximab Vedotin with a grade 3 or higher. Toxicity assessed via the National Cancer Institute - Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) v. 4. The NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events is a descriptive terminology which can be utilized for Adverse Event (AE) reporting. A grading (severity) scale is provided for each AE term.The higher the grade the more severe the adverse event.
- Exploratory Objective Whether the Cytokine Profile Changes After Treatment [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To determine whether the cytokine profile changes after treatment, and to correlate serum levels of cytokines with the overall response after ABVD followed by brentuximab vedotin consolidation
