CURRENT PRACTICE STUDY OF ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT OF GASTRIC MALT LYMPHOMA


OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the response of gastric lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid
tissue (MALT) to treatment for Helicobacter pylori infection with antibiotics (amoxicillin,
clarithromycin, tetracycline, and metronidazole) and with gastric acid inhibitors
(omeprazole and bismuth subsalicylate). II. Correlate response with endoscopic tumor grade
and clinical and pathological parameters. III. Assess the incidence of H. pylori infection
in patients with gastric MALT lymphoma.

OUTLINE: All patients are treated on Regimen A; those receiving tetracycline on Regimen A
are switched to Regimen B for their second course; those receiving amoxicillin for their
first course receive tetracycline for their second course. Regimen A: Antibiotic Therapy
with Gastric Acid Inhibition. Amoxicillin (or Tetracycline in penicillin-allergic patients);
Clarithromycin; with Bismuth Subsalicylate; Omeprazole. Regimen B: Antibiotic Therapy with
Gastric Acid Inhibition. Tetracycline; Metronidazole, METRO, NSC-50364; with Bismuth
Subsalicylate; Omeprazole.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 75 patients will be entered over 3 years.
