  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining radiation therapy with combination chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of radiation therapy with no radiation therapy following chemotherapy in treating patients with stage III or stage IV Hodgkin's disease.


Condition Intervention Phase
Lymphoma Biological: bleomycin sulfate Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride Drug: mechlorethamine hydrochloride Drug: prednisone Drug: procarbazine hydrochloride Drug: vinblastine sulfate Drug: vincristine sulfate Radiation: low-LET cobalt-60 gamma ray therapy Radiation: low-LET photon therapy Radiation: radiation therapy Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase III Randomized Trial of Adjuvant Involved-Field Radiotherapy vs No Adjuvant Therapy Following Remission Induction With MOPP/ABV Hybrid Chemotherapy in Patients With Stage III/IV Hodgkin's Disease

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Benefit of adjuvant involved field RT after entering complete remission with MOPP/ABV hybrid CT
  • Efficacy of MOPP/ABV hybrid CT

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relapse free survival
  • Overall survival

Enrollment: 615
Study Start Date: September 1989
Primary Completion Date: May 2000 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Compare relapse-free survival and overall survival of patients with Stage III/IV Hodgkin's disease randomly assigned to adjuvant involved-field radiotherapy vs. no adjuvant therapy following remission induction with MOPP/ABV (nitrogen mustard/vincristine/procarbazine/prednisone/doxorubicin/bleomycin/vinblastine). II. Evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of MOPP/ABV hybrid chemotherapy in advanced Hodgkin's disease. III. Evaluate the prognostic significance of an early response to MOPP/ABV in patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease.

OUTLINE: Study randomized for adjuvant radiotherapy. All patients receive Induction chemotherapy on Regimen A, following which those in CR are randomized on Arms I and II. Regimen A: 7-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. MOPP/ABV Hybrid. Mechlorethamine, NM, NSC-762; Vincristine, VCR, NSC-67574; Procarbazine, PCB, NSC-77213; Prednisone, PRED, NSC-10023; Doxorubicin, DOX, NSC-123127; Bleomycin, BLEO, NSC-125066; Vinblastine, VBL, NSC-49842. Arm I: Radiotherapy. Involved-field irradiation using megavoltage equipment. Arm II: No further therapy.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 321 evaluable patients will be required; an annual accrual rate of 80 patients is anticipated.
