Purpose:

This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of flavopiridol and to see how well it works in treating patients with lymphoma or multiple myeloma. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as flavopiridol, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.


Study summary:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the disease-specific dose-limiting toxicity and maximum tolerated dose of flavopiridol in patients with relapsed or refractory lymphoma or multiple myeloma. II. Determine the complete and partial response rate in patients with selected non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (e.g., indolent B-cell, mantle cell, intermediate grade B-cell, and T/NK-cell), Hodgkin's lymphoma, or multiple myeloma treated with this drug. III. Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects or this drug, in terms of organ specificity, time course, predictability, and reversibility in these patients. IV. Determine subsets of lymphoid/plasma cell malignancies that are suitable for larger phase II studies designed to further evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of this drug in these patients. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients. II. Determine the effect of this drug on innate immunity (including T-, B-, and NK-cell subsets) and quantitative immunoglobulin levels in these patients. III. Determine whether acute infusion toxicity (e.g., fever, hypotension, tumor pain, and dyspnea) observed with other flavopiridol treatment schedules is related to a cytokine-release syndrome in these patients. IV. Determine whether this drug induces response (independent of p53 mutational status) in these patients. OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study followed by a multicenter, phase II, pilot study. Patients enrolled in the phase II portion of the study are stratified according to diagnosis. PHASE I: Patients receive flavopiridol IV over 4½ hours on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Treatment repeats every 6 weeks for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of flavopiridol until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. PHASE II: Patients receive flavopiridol* as in phase I at the MTD determined in phase I. NOTE: The phase II treatment dose and schedule for hairy cell leukemia patients will be adapted from that developed in previous phase II studies of flavopiridol for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years.
