This study is currently recruiting participants.

Patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma who are CD30+ will receive a standard of care reduced intensity regimen and an allogeneic stem cell transplant (from another person, related or unrelated). Following recovery, patients will receive a medication called Brentuximab Vendotin which is targeted against CD30+ cells. The study hypothesis is that this treatment will be safe and well tolerated in children and young adults.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Further study details as provided by New York Medical College:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Patients will be followed for one year for adverse events related to the administration of study drug.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    patients will be assessed for one year to determine survival status

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess feasibility of developing a bank of LMP-specific CTLs from healthy donors [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    A bank of from identified EBV positive donors will be established for potential use in current and future clinical trials in LMP-positive lymphomas. Annual review will occur to assess the feasibility of recruiting healthy donors to help build this cell line bank. If there are no cell lines developed within the first year, an alternative design may be considered.

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: March 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Allogeneic Transplant and Immunotherapy
We intend to utilize reduced intensity conditioning and allogeneic stem cell transplant from HLA matched sibling or unrelated adult donor followed by post-AlloSCT Brentuximab Vedotin in patients with poor risk Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Drug: Brentuximab Vedotin

Brentuximab Vedotin will be administered every 21 days starting on or around Day +42 post allogeneic stem cell transplant for a TOTAL of 4 doses as outlined below:

  • 42 (+/-7 days) Brentuximab Vedotin 1.8 mg/kg (max=180 mg) IV x 1
  • 63 (+/- 7 days) Brentuximab Vedotin 1.8 mg/kg (max=180 mg) IV x 1
  • 84 (+/- 7 days) Brentuximab Vedotin 1.8 mg/kg (max = 180 mg) IV x 1
  • 105 (+/- 7 days) Brentuximab Vedotin 1.8 mg/kg (max=180 mg) IV x 1
Other Name: Adcetris
Procedure: Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation
Following conditioning with chemotherapy, patients will receive stem cells from a matched related or unrelated donor.
Drug: Reduced Intensity Conditioning
Patients will receive reduced intensity chemotherapy with one of three regimens: Busulfan/Fludarabine; Gemcitabine/Fludarabine/Melphalan; Fludarabine/Cyclophosphamide
