  • Double Cord Versus Haploidentical (Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network #1101)
  • Hematopoietic cell transplants (HCT)are one treatment option for people with leukemia or lymphoma. Family members,unrelated donors or banked umbilical cordblood units with similar tissue type can be used for HCT. This study will compare the effectiveness of two new types of bone marrow transplants in people with leukemia or lymphoma: one that uses bone marrow donated from family members with only partially matched bone marrow; and, one that uses two partially matched cord blood units.

  • Brentuximab Vedotin Plus AVD in Limited-stage Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Brentuximab is an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC), which is the combination of an antibody (a protein that binds to cells) and a chemotherapy molecule. Brentuximab works by using the antibody portion to enter into the Hodgkin lymphoma cells and then releasing the chemotherapy portion, which attempts to destroy the cell. The intravenous chemotherapy drugs Adriamycin, Vinblastine and Dacarbazine (AVD) which you will receive in this research study are approved for use in people with Hodgkin Lymphoma. A drug called bleomycin is usually included with AVD, but since it appears to be a less effective drug with significant potential risks, it is being replaced in this study with the drug brentuximab. In this research study, the investigators are looking to see whether brentuximab in combination with AVD is effective in treating limited-stage Hodgkin Lymphoma.

  • Response-Based Therapy Assessed By PET Scan in Treating Patients With Bulky Stage I and Stage II Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • This research is being done in order to improve treatment outcomes in patients diagnosed with bulky, early stage Hodgkin lymphoma and to reduce the side effects that are associated with use of radiation used in current treatments. The chemotherapy treatment in this study consists of a combination of four drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA): doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine. This regimen (called ABVD) has been found to be effective in treating patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and is considered the standard of treatment used with radiation therapy in patients with bulky early stage Hodgkin lymphoma. As part of the evaluation of the effectiveness of the chemotherapy treatment, PET scans will be obtained during the course of therapy. The usefulness of this PET scan will be evaluated to determine whether radiation may be left out in the treatment of disease if the PET scan shows that the patient has responded to chemotherapy alone. The plan is to identify a group of patients using early PET scans in order to change to a chemotherapy treatment called BEACOPP (bleomycin, etoposide, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, procarbazine and prednisone). It is one of the most highly effective chemotherapy regimens for Hodgkin lymphoma, but is associated with more side effects than ABVD. Although it has become standard of care in Europe, its use has been more limited in the U.S. because of concerns about toxicity.
