  Purpose

Background:

- The chemotherapy combination DA-EPOCH-RP includes the drugs etoposide (E), prednisone (P), vincristine (O), cyclophosphamide (C), doxorubicin (H), rituximab (R), and pomalidomide (P). Researchers want to see if including pomalidomide will help people with two rare lymphomas.

Objectives:

- To study the safety and efficacy of the chemotherapy drugs DA-EPOCH-RP.

Eligibility:

- Adults at least 18 years old. They must have primary effusion lymphoma or large cell lymphoma arising from Kaposi sarcoma Herpesvirus-associated multicentric Castleman disease.

Design:

  • Participants will be with screened with blood tests, scans, spinal tap, and bone marrow sample. They may have skin or lymph node samples taken and fluid removed from around some organs.
  • Participants will have breathing and eye tests. A camera may take pictures inside their body.
  • Participants will take pomalidomide alone by mouth for up to 21 days. Then they will get rituximab by intravenous (IV) catheter, which is a small tube that goes into a vein..
  • Participants will have an IV inserted in an arm or chest vein to get the IV chemotherapy drugs, at the same time the will take pomalidomide by mouth for 5 days.
  • They will get DA-EPOCH-RP in 21-day cycles. Most people will have 6 cycles.
  • They will get 4 study drugs by IV for 5 days and 2 others by mouth for 5 days.
  • They will get daily filgrastim injections in the skin until white blood counts are acceptable
  • For 2 days of some cycles, methotrexate will be injected into the spinal fluid.
  • After completing EPOCH-RP, some participants who have Kaposi sarcoma will be prescribed pomalidomide for 3-weeks, followed by a one week break, for up to 12 months.
  • Participants will repeat the blood tests often. They will also have repeated medical history, physical exam, urine and stool tests, and pictures of any rashes associated with these lymphomas.
  • Participants will have several follow-up visits over 4 years.

2.1.2.5 Inadequate renal function, defined as calculated or estimated creatinine clearance < 60 mL/min unless lymphoma related

2.1.2.6 Inadequate hepatic function:

--2.1.2.6.1 Bilirubin (total) > 1.5 times the upper limit of normal; AST and/or ALT > 3 times the upper limit of normal; EXCEPTIONS:

  • Total bilirubin greater than or equal to 5 mg/dL in patients with Gilbert's syndrome as defined by >80% unconjugated

  • Hepatic dysfunction attributed to lymphoma

2.1.2.7 ANC <1000/mm3 and platelets < 75,000/mm3 unless lymphoma, KSHV-MCD, or KICS- related.

2.1.2.11 History of hypersensitivity reactions attributed to thalidomide, lenalidomide, or pomalidomide, including prior development of erythema nodosum if characterized by a desquamating rash while taking thalidomide, lenalidomide, or pomalidomide.

2.1.2.12 Breast feeding (if lactating, must agree not to breast feed while taking pomalidomide). Because there is an unknown but potential risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with Pomalidomide, breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated with Pomalidomide.

2.1.2.13 Uncontrolled severe intercurrent illness including, but not limited to: bacterial, fungal, or life-threatening viral infection; symptomatic congestive heart failure; unstable angina pectoris; cardiac arrhythmia; or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.

2.1.2.14 Any condition, including laboratory abnormalities, which in the opinion of the Principal Investigator or Lead Associate Investigator, would prohibit administration of planned chemotherapeutic intervention, places the subject at unacceptable risk if they were to participate in the study or confounds the ability to interpret data from the study

2.1.2.15 Pregnant women are excluded from this study because pomalidomide is a Category X agent with the potential for teratogenic or abortifacient effects. These potential risks may also apply to other agents used in this study
