Kurze Zusammenfassung

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of liposomal vincristine in treating patients who have refractory or relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

detaillierte Beschreibung


- Determine the complete and partial tumor responses in patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that is refractory to or relapsed after second-line combination chemotherapy treated with vincristine sulfate liposomes injection.

- Determine the toxicity of this treatment regimen in these patients.

- Determine the duration of response, time to progression, and survival in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive vincristine sulfate liposomes IV over 1 hour. Treatment repeats every 2 weeks for a maximum of 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 8 weeks until disease progression.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
