Intralesional Rituximab for the Treatment of Conjunctival Indolent Lymphoma
Phase II Study on Activity and Tolerability of Intralesional Rituximab in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory CD20+ Indolent Lymphomas of Conjunctiva; Activity of Supplemental Autologous Serum in Patients Not Responsive to Rituximab Alone
Phase II, monocentric, open label study to assess safety and activity of intralesional Rituximab for the treatment of indolent CD20+ lymphoma of conjunctiva.
Preliminary data suggest intralesional rituximab is able to revert resistance to systemic rituximab in patients with CD20+ indolent lymphoma of the conjunctiva, and the addition of autologous serum seems to exhibit a synergistic effect on tumor regression. These two main aspects will be assessed in this trial.
Phase 2
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Ocular Adnexal Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Tissue Lymphoma
  • Drug: intralesional rituximab
    10-20 mg (1-2 ml) rituximab once a week for 4 weeks; followed by 10-20 mg (1-2 ml) rituximab monthly per six months
    Other Name: Intraconjunctival rituximab; mabthera, anti-CD20 therapy
  • Biological: supplemental autologous serum
    patients in PD or SD during or after administration of 6 doses monthly rituximab will be administered the same dose of intralesional rituximab supplemented by autologous serum
    Other Name: autologous serum supplementation; complement
Experimental: intralesional rituximab
  • Drug: intralesional rituximab
  • Biological: supplemental autologous serum
