Phase II Study of High Dose Cyclophosphamide and Rituximab in Low Grade and Mantle Cell Lymphoma


OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the safety of high-dose cyclophosphamide, rituximab, and pegfilgrastim in
patients with B-cell leukemia or low-grade or mantle cell lymphoma.

- Determine the molecular response rate in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.

Patients receive rituximab IV over 30-60 minutes on days 1, 4, 8,11, 45, and 52,
cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days 15-18, and pegfilgrastim subcutaneously on day 19 or
20 in the absence of unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 32 patients will be accrued for this study.

Inclusion Criteria


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

- One of the following B-cell leukemias or lymphomas, as defined by World Health
Organization criteria:

- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma

- B-cell prolymphocytic leukemia

- Lymphoplasmacytic leukemia

- Marginal zone lymphoma (splenic, extranodal, or nodal)

- Follicular lymphoma (grade 1 or 2)

- Mantle cell lymphoma

- No more than minimal (approximately 10%) morphologically identifiable cancer cells on
bone marrow biopsy

- When cancer cells are morphologically difficult to distinguish from normal
cells, flow cytometry must show no more than 10% identifiable cancer cells

- Must have received ≤ 12 months of prior cytotoxic therapy, achieving at least a
partial response 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.

PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS:

- ECOG performance status 0-1

- WBC ≥ 3,000/mm^3

- Hemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL

- Platelet count ≥ 75,000/mm^3

- Serum creatinine ≤ 2.0 mg/dL

- Total bilirubin ≤ 2 mg/dL unless secondary to tumor

- AST or ALT < 2 times upper limit of normal

- Normal (≥ 45%) left ventricular cardiac ejection fraction (determined by
echocardiogram or MUGA scan)

- DLCO > 50% predicted

- Not pregnant or nursing

- Negative pregnancy test

- Fertile patients must use effective contraception

- No known sensitivity to E. coli-derived products (e.g. filgrastim [G-CSF], insulin,
asparaginase, growth hormone, or recombinant interferon alfa-2b) or any treatment
study drugs

- No active infections requiring oral or intravenous antibiotics

- No other second malignancy other than basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the
skin or in situ carcinoma of the cervix unless the malignancy was localized and
treated or resected with > 90% probability of cure

PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY:

- See Disease Characteristics

- Prior anti-CD20 therapy allowed provided patient achieved a partial or complete
response

- No concurrent steroids during rituximab administration
