Gene Therapy, Chemotherapy, and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With HIV-Related Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
A Phase I/II Study of the Safety and Feasibility of REVM10 or REVM10/ANTISENSE POL 1 Transduced Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSC) in HIV-1 Related Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Patients Already Being Treated With High Dose Chemotherapy and Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Support

RATIONALE: Inserting the gene for RevM10 into a person's peripheral stem cells may improve the body's ability to fight cancer or make the cancer more sensitive to chemotherapy.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of RevM10-treated stem cells plus chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have HIV-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety of infusion of RevM10 or RevM10/polAS transduced hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) in addition to high dose chemotherapy and standard peripheral blood stem cell support in patients with HIV-1 related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. II. Determine gene marking of lymphocytes and myeloid cells in peripheral blood, bone marrow, and/or lymph nodes after infusion of RevM10-HSC or RevM10/polAS-HSC in these patients. III. Determine the antiretroviral effect of this treatment in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive mobilization therapy and undergo leukapheresis according to a standard protocol. High dose chemotherapy is administered on days -7 to -1, also according to a standard protocol. On day 0, autologous hematopoietic stem cells transduced with genes RevM10 or RevM10/polAS are infused. Unmodified autologous peripheral blood stem cells are reinfused on day 1. Patients are followed daily for 2 weeks, weekly for 2 weeks, monthly for 1 year, then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 15 patients will be accrued for this study within 14 months.
