Experimental: Arm A
EPOCH-R every 3 weeks for 6 cycles.
Combination chemotherapy given with Rituximab (EPOCH-R) IV every 3 weeks for 6 cycles.Biological: Rituximab
Rituximab given on Day 1 of combination chemotherapy (EPOCH-R) every 3 weeks for 6 cycles.
The treatment of the intermediate and aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in adults and children commonly induces complete responses in a sizable fraction of the treated population, and about 2/3 of the complete responders appear to have prolonged disease-free survival.
The present study assesses the activity and tolerability in previously untreated patients of a regimen of EPOCH infusional chemotherapy given intensively with G-CSF support.
Assess complete response (CR) and progression-free survival (PFS) of dose-adjusted EPOCH-Rituximab (DA-EPOCH-R) with G-CSF in agressive B-cell lymphomas.
Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in the following categories: mediastinal gray zone lymphoma (MGZL) and primary mediastinal B cell lymphoma (PMBL).
Patients greater than or equal to 12 years old.
Any Stage for PMBL and MGZL.
No prior systemic chemotherapy.
This study will estimate the complete response rate of a group of previously untreated patients and the extent to which EPOCH infusional drug delivery accompanied by a hematopoietic growth factor can increase the dose intensity of treatment.
Patients receive prednisone orally for 5 days, a 96 hour infusion of vincristine, doxorubicin, and etoposide, and a bolus of cyclophosphamide on day 5.
Cycles are repeated every 21 days for a total of 6-8 cycles.
Patients with CD20 expressing tumors (i.e. mature B-cell lymphomas) will also receive rituximab, the humanized monoclonal antibody against the CD20 receptor on day 1 of each cycle.
A total of 348 patients will be enrolled on this protocol.
