Name: Yttrium 90 Ibritumomab Tiuxetan ( Zevalin )
Type: Drug
Overall Status
Not yet recruiting
This aim of this study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of combining a single course of Yttrium 90 Ibritumomab Tiuxetan, a radiolabeled monoclonal antibody ( Zevalin ), with high-dose BEAM chemotherapy and autologous peripheral stem cell transplantation in patients with relapsed, refractory, or transformed Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Detailed Description
Relapse rates after chemotherapy for relapsed, refractory or transformed Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL)remain very high. NHL is a radiosensitive tumor. We hypothesize that targeted radioimmunotherapy combined with high-dose chemotherapy may increase response and survival rates in a safe and reliable manner.
