RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining radiation therapy with chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving methotrexate and zidovudine together with radiation therapy works in treating patients with HIV-related primary central nervous system lymphoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Lymphoma||Drug: methotrexate Drug: zidovudine Procedure: neoadjuvant therapy Radiation: radiation therapy||Phase 2|
- Determine the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy in the treatment of HIV-related primary CNS lymphoma patients.
- Evaluate the toxicity and overall survival of these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive chemotherapy consisting of high-dose methotrexate IV administered on day 1 and high-dose zidovudine IV administered on days 1-3 every 2 weeks. Patients receive 3 courses of therapy. Following chemotherapy, patients receive radiation therapy to the lesion site daily.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue 14 patients.
