A Phase II Study of Intensive-Dose Topotecan, Ifosfamide/Mesna and Etoposide (Vepesid)(TIME) Followed by Autologous Stem Cell Rescue in High Risk Lymphoma


OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the efficacy of intensive high dose chemotherapy consisting of topotecan,
ifosfamide, and etoposide followed by autologous bone marrow or peripheral blood stem
cell transplantation in terms of response rate, progression free survival, and overall
survival in patients with high risk non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or Hodgkin's lymphoma.

- Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of high dose topotecan and etoposide in these
patients.

- Determine the pharmacodynamics and toxicity of this regimen in these patients.

- Determine the role of either an up or down regulation of DNA topoisomerase I or II
amount and/or activity in terms of clinical response and toxicity in patients treated
with this regimen.

OUTLINE: Patients receive intensive high dose chemotherapy consisting of ifosfamide IV over
2 hours followed by topotecan IV over 30 minutes on days -8 to -6 and etoposide IV
continuously over 24 hours on days -5 to -3. Patients undergo autologous bone marrow or
peripheral blood stem cell transplantation on day 0.

Patients are followed at 3, 6, and 12 months, annually until disease relapse, and then every
6 months until death.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study within 3 years.

Inclusion Criteria


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

- Histologically confirmed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

- No lymphoblastic lymphoma

- Under 55 years of age:

- Intermediate and high grade or aggressive disease that has relapsed and/or
failed at least 2 salvage chemotherapy regimens OR

- Failed to achieve complete response after first line induction chemotherapy
and failed at least 1 salvage chemotherapy regimen

- Low grade or indolent disease that has relapsed or failed to achieve
complete response after first line induction chemotherapy and failed more
than 2 salvage chemotherapy regimens

- 55 years of age and over:

- Intermediate and high grade or aggressive disease that has relapsed and/or
failed to achieve complete response after first line induction chemotherapy

- Low grade or indolent disease that has relapsed or failed to achieve
complete response after first line induction chemotherapy OR

- Histologically confirmed Hodgkin's lymphoma

- Under 55 years of age:

- Received at least 2 prior salvage chemotherapy regimens

- 55 years of age and over:

- Stage III or IV disease that has relapsed or failed to achieve remission
after combination induction chemotherapy

- Prior primary radiotherapy allowed if relapse is high risk (e.g.,
recurrence in radiation field, B symptoms, or liver or bone marrow
involvement)

- No active leptomeningeal involvement or severe symptomatic CNS disease

- Prior CSF tumor involvement allowed if asymptomatic and no evidence of disease
on lumbar puncture or no tumor involvement on MRI of the brain

- Solid tumors and brain metastases allowed

- No evidence of disease by MRI and physical exam following optimal prior surgery
and/or radiotherapy AND

- At least 3 months since prior radiotherapy NOTE: A new classification scheme for
adult non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has been adopted by PDQ. The terminology of
"indolent" or "aggressive" lymphoma will replace the former terminology of
"low", "intermediate", or "high" grade lymphoma. However, this protocol uses the
former terminology.
