Phase II Study of the Dose Adjusted EPOCH Regimen In Combination With Ofatumumab As Therapy For Patients With Newly Diagnosed Or Relapsed/Refractory Burkitt Leukemia or Relapsed/Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
MD Anderson Study Status
Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin Hydrochloride, Etoposide, Ofatumumab, Prednisone, Rituximab, Vincristine Sulfate
This phase II trial studies how well a dose adjusted regimen consisting of etoposide, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin hydrochloride (EPOCH) works in combination with ofatumumab or rituximab in treating patients with Burkitt lymphoma that is newly diagnosed, or has returned after a period of improvement (relapsed), or has not responded to previous treatment (refractory) or relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide, prednisone, vincristine sulfate, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ofatumumab and rituximab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) together with monoclonal antibody therapy may kill more cancer cells.
