Purpose:

The prognosis of AIDS-related Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is poor, especially in the relapsed setting. There is no standard treatment, and the few small studies that have been conducted have reported dismal outcomes. The purpose of this study is to pilot the use of EPOCH plus rituximab in previously treated AIDS-related lymphoma. Clinical endpoints of the study include toxicity and response. Progression-free and overall survival will be measured. Tumors will be evaluated for p53 mutations, p-16, bcl-2 expression, tumor proliferation, c-myc and EBV when possible.

Laboratory test: (Abnormalities are allowed if due to organ involvement by lymphoma). Creatinine less than or equal to 1.7. Bilirubin must be less than 2.0 mg/dl, or total bilirubin less than or equal to 3.7 mg/dl with direct fraction less than or equal to 0.2 mg/dl and indirect fraction of less than or equal 3.5 mg/dl in patients for whom these abnormalities are felt to be due to protease inhibitor therapy.
