Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Clinical Trial
Cholecalciferol in Newly Diagnosed Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia With Vitamin D Deficiency
This randomized pilot early phase I trial studies how well cholecalciferol works in treating patients with newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia with low levels of vitamin D (vitamin D deficiency). Cholecalciferol may increase levels of vitamin D and improve survival in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia receiving standard of care chemotherapy.
I. To evaluate the 3 year progression-free survival (PFS), defined as time from the time of study entry of watch and wait or newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) or chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) until relapse, progression, or death from any cause.
I. To evaluate changes in the levels of serum vitamin D levels during therapy with daily oral vitamin D supplementation (cholecalciferol).
II. To evaluate the overall survival (OS), defined as time from the time of study entry of watch and wait patients or newly diagnosed NHL or CLL until death from any cause.
OUTLINE: Patients with low levels of vitamin D are randomized to 1 of 2 arms and patients with normal levels are assigned to Arm III.
ARM I: Patients receive high-dose cholecalciferol orally (PO) daily for 3 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients receive low-dose cholecalciferol PO daily for 3 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM III: Patients receive no intervention.
Patients must have histologically confirmed newly diagnosed or previously untreated (patients may be under no treatment ?wait and watch? or have received two cycles of chemotherapy or localized radiation therapy before going on this study) non-Hodgkin?s lymphoma or CLL
Patients must have serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) drawn at time of enrollment; (NOTE: subjects currently taking vitamin D supplements are eligible for screening)
Simultaneous participation in other therapeutic clinical trials will be allowed
Patients must be aware of the neoplastic nature of his/her disease and willingly provide written, informed consent after being informed of the procedure to be followed, the nature of the therapy, alternatives, potential benefits, side-effects, risks, and discomforts
History of uncontrollable allergic reactions to vitamin D
History of Paget?s disease
Any other clinically significant medical disease or condition laboratory abnormality or psychiatric illness that, in the investigator?s opinion, may interfere with protocol adherence or a subject?s ability to give informed consent
Inability to cooperate with the requirements of the protocol
