RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of two combination chemotherapy regimens in treating patients with Hodgkin's disease and HIV infection.

Additional Information

Official title Prospective Non Randomized Study With Chemotherapy in Patients With Hodgkin's Disease and HIV Infection: "Stanford V Regimen" For "Low Risk" Patients, "EBVP Regimen" For "High Risk" Patients
Description OBJECTIVES: - Investigate the effects on survival, life expectancy and quality, toxicity, and immunological status in low risk patients with Hodgkin's Disease and HIV infection treated with the Stanford V regimen and in high risk patients treated with epirubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and prednisone. OUTLINE: Patients are stratified into 2 groups designated as low and high risk on the basis of ECOG performance status (0-2 vs 3-4), presence or absence of AIDS before the diagnosis of Hodgkin's Disease, and immune status (CD4+ cell count greater vs no greater than 100/mm^3). - Low risk patients (those with no risk factors) receive the EBVP regimen, as follows: - Epirubicin intravenously on day 1 - Bleomycin intramuscularly or intravenously on day 1 - Vinblastine intravenously on day 1 - Prednisone orally on days 1-5 - Patients also receive daily injections of filgrastim (granulocyte colony-stimulating factor; G-CSF) on days 6-15. This schedule is repeated every 3 weeks for 6 courses. - High risk patients (those with one or more risk factors) receive the Stanford V regimen, as follows: - Doxorubicin and vinblastine intravenously on days 1 and 15 - Mechlorethamine intravenously on day 1 - Vincristine and bleomycin intravenously on days 8 and 22 - Etoposide intravenously on days 15 and 16 - Prednisone orally daily - Patients also receive daily injections of G-CSF on days 3-7, 9-13, 17-21, and 23-26. This schedule is repeated every 28 days for 3 courses. Patients are followed every 2 months the first year and then every 3 months thereafter. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 20-30 patients will initially be accrued in this study.
