Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Clinical Trial
A Study of Melphalan in People With Lymphoma Getting an Autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplant
The purpose of this study is to find out whether it is practical to use a newer way to calculate melphalan dose given (called population PK model) in BEAM chemotherapy before AHCT. Standard dose is fixed for everybody and is calculated using height and weight. The population PK model, tested in this study, uses information based on people who have previously received melphalan and aims to calculate an optimal dose separately for each person. Study researchers think that the dose calculated using the population PK model may still be effective but have less side effects than the standard melphalan dose.
