Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (Auto-LLC 2001)
Phase III trial evaluating the role of autologous stem cell transplantation in previously untreated patients under 65 years with stage B and C B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Endpoints of the trial :
- major : progression free survival at 3 years
- secondary : overall survival, tolerance, prognostic factors according to baseline clinical stage and biological characteristics (IgHv mutational status, expression of ZAP70 and CD38, cytogenetics).

No Intervention: Complete responders
watch and wait policy
Experimental: arm 2: complete responders patients
ABMT : TBI, 10 grays d-3-1 & cyclophosphamide 60 mg/sqm d-5-4
Procedure: Autologous stem cell transplantation
TBI (10 grays, d-3-1), cyclophosphamide (60 mg/sqm d-5-4)
Other Name: ABMT
Experimental: Non CR patients arm 3
Rescue chemotherapy and ABMT (see arm 2)
Procedure: DHAP rescue and Autologous stem cell transplantation
DHAP :IV cisplatin 100 mg/sqm d1, IV cytarabine 2 g/sqm d2,, IV dexamethasone 40 mg/sqm d1-4, TBI (10 grays d-3-1), cyclophosphamide (60 mg/sqm d-5-4)
Active Comparator: Non CR patients at random : arm 4
Rescue DHAP, F+C
Procedure: DHAP rescue and F+C
DHAP :IV cisplatin 100 mg/sqm d1, IV Cytarabine 2 g/sqm d2, IV dexamethasone 40 mg/sqm d1-4, Followed by 3 monthly cycles with IV d1-3 fludarabine (25 mg/sqm) & cyclophosphamide (300 mg/sqm)
All registered patients will be treated with 6 monthly courses of chemotherapy. First three ones will be a CHOP regimen with half dosage of adriamycin, as previously published (Effectiveness of "CHOP" regimen in advanced untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia. French Cooperative Group on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Lancet ; 1986, i : 1346-1349), followed by three subsequent courses with IV fludarabine (25 mg/sqm d1-5). Patients in CR (NCI, 1996, including CAT scan evaluation) will be then randomized to surveillance without additional treatment or autologous stem cell transplantation using peripheral stem cells collected after the three first courses of chemotherapy, and/or after the completion of the six courses when necessary. For patients not in CR after the six courses, a rescue regimen with the DHAP association ( cisplatin, 100 mg/sqm d1, cytarabine 2 g/sqm d2, dexamethasone 40 mg/sqm d1-4) will precede an additional stem cell collection if necessary, and patient will be randomized between autologous stem cell transplantation and three additional courses of an association of fludarabine (25 mg/sqm d1-3) and cyclophosphamide (300 mg/sqm d1-3). Conditioning regimen will associate TBI (10 grays, d -3-1) and cyclophosphamide (60 mg/sqm d-5-4).
Evaluation for response wil be performed before randomisation and two months after completion of therapy in each arm.
Follow-up data will be registered and monitored every three month during the first year, and then every six month. Criteria for evaluation of response will use the NCI system (1996).
