Description

Major improvements in the treatment of childhood non-lymphoblastic lymphomas have taken place in the last ten years. Though the survival rate in low risk patients (i.e., those with stage I & II disease and serum LDH of less than 350 IU/dL) was as high as 90% with the previous Pediatric Branch protocol, only 32% of patients in the high risk group achieved long term remission. The present protocol is designed to improve survival in the high risk group by using alternating non-cross resistant drug regimens. We plan to determine whether using granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM...

Eligibility criteria

  • High Risk Protocol: Patients with small non-cleaved (Burkitt or Burkitt-like) or diffuse large cell lymphomas except those with:
  • a) Minimal extra-abdominal tumor as the sole site of disease and a serum LDH less than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (NIH patients, less than 350 U/L) or except those with b) completely resected small, localized abdominal mass (involved segmental lymph nodes permitted) and a serum LDH level less than 1.5 times upper limit of normal (NIH patients less than 350 U/L).
  • All patients with small non-cleaved (Burkitt or Burkitt-like) or diffuse large cell lymphomas with a serum LDH level greater than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (NIH patients, greater than 350 U/L), regardless of the clinically documented extent of disease.
  • All patients with small non-cleaved (Burkitt or Burkitt-like) or diffuse large cell lymphomas with testicular involvement.
  • Low risk protocol: Patients with small non-cleaved (Burkitt or Burkitt-like) or diffuse large cell lymphomas with a) minimal extra-abdominal disease as the sole site of disease and a serum LDH less than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (NIH patients, less than 350 U/L) or b) completely resected small, localized abdominal mass (involved segmental lymph nodes permitted for gastrointestinal disease) and a serum LDH level less than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (NIH patients, less than 350 U/L).
  • No patients with lymphoblastic lymphomas, low grade or follicular lymphomas.
  • No patients with peripheral T cell lymphomas that do not fall into the category of anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
  • No patients with a previously documented lymphoma or histological evidence of co-existing lymphoma of other histology.
  • No patients who have been previously treated with chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
  • No patients with HIV infection.
  • No patients above the age of 60 years.
  • No patients with a history of inherited or non-HIV acquired immunodeficiency syndromes.
