John Theurer Cancer Center experts present new cancer research at ASCO Annual Meeting
Date:6/4/2010

ptimal therapy remains controversial. In phase I-II studies by this research group, they observed a complete remission rate of 48% using FND for this cancer. Adding rituximab to the treatment regimen, they achieved a five-year overall survival rate of 84% and a nine-year rate of 53%.

The researchers concluded that rituximab-FND combination therapy is a very active and well tolerated regimen for relapsed indolent B-cell lymphoma. Patients who received this therapy were also able to receive stem cell transplants, and had favorable outcomes.

Optimal front-line therapies for mantle cell lymphoma. (Abstract number 8067; poster session, June 5, 8:00 a.m. 12:00 p.m.)

Tatyana Feldman, M.D., Attending, Lymphoma, the John Theurer Cancer Center and colleagues conducted a retrospective analysis of cases at the John Theurer Cancer Center in order to compare the survival of newly diagnosed mantle cell lymphoma patients who were given three distinct first-line treatment regimens. The study was conducted because there is no consensus on the best treatment for this subset of patients, and because data from randomized studies are not available. Recent analyses however, strongly support the use of high-dose treatments for these patients. The researchers' analyzed data to compare the overall survival of patients treated with rituximab plus a combination of doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and dexamethasone (R-HCVAD); high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation; and standard-dose chemotherapy with rituximab. Patients treated with either R-HCVAD or stem-cell transplantation had better survival rates than the patients treated with standard-dose chemotherapy and rituximab.

The researchers concluded that both R-HCVAD and high-dose chemotherapy combined with autologous stem cell transplantation provide a platform for treatment strategies that integrate novel therapies, or as part of a maintenance strat
