Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Clinical Trial
Autologous Stem Cell Transplant Followed by Polatuzumab Vedotin in Patients With B-cell Non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin Lymphoma
Patients will receive one of two conditioning regimens (BEAM or CBV) before receiving an autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). If patients achieve either complete, partial, or stable response following ASCT, they will receive an IV dose of Polatuzumab Vedotin once every 21 days until they receive 8 doses. After Polatuzumab Vedotin therapy is completed, patients will be followed every 4 months for about 2 years.
Diagnosis B-cell NHL: Burkitt lymphoma, Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma, Follicular Lymphoma, Mantle Cell Lymphoma, Marginal Zone Lymphoma, Transformed Follicular Lymphoma, Richter syndrome, and CD20+ Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Disease Status Primary Induction Failure, 1st, 2nd or 3rd relapse/progression having attained a CR, PR, or stable disease post reinduction therapy.
Performance Level Patients must have a performance status ≥ 50%. Use Karnofsky for patients > 16 years of age and Lansky for patients less than or equal to 16 years of age. See Appendix I for performance score.
Life Expectancy Patients must have a life expectancy of > 6 weeks.
Prior Therapy Patients must have fully recovered from the acute toxic effects of all prior chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiotherapy prior to entering this study.
Myelosuppressive chemotherapy: Must not have received within 2 weeks of entry onto this study (4 weeks if prior nitrosourea).
Biologic (anti-neoplastic agent): At least 7 days since the completion of therapy with a biologic agent.
