No concurrent prophylactic G-CSF - Concurrent G-CSF or other hematopoietic growth factors for acute toxicity (e.g., febrile neutropenia) allowed - Concurrent chronic epoetin alfa allowed provided no dose adjustment occurred within 2 months prior to study Chemotherapy: - See Disease Characteristics - At least 4 weeks since prior anticancer chemotherapy - No more than 3 prior systemic chemotherapy regimens for metastatic NHL: - High-dose therapy for autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) is considered 1 prior regimen - Salvage chemotherapy followed by autologous bone marrow transplant or peripheral SCT is considered 1 prior regimen - Antibody treatment is not considered 1 prior regimen - No prior taxanes or oxaliplatin - No other concurrent anticancer chemotherapy Endocrine therapy: - Patients with prior parenchymal or meningeal CNS involvement: - No concurrent acute or tapered steroid therapy - Concurrent chronic steroid therapy allowed provided the dose is stable for 1 month before and after screening radiographic studies Radiotherapy: - See Disease Characteristics - At least 4 weeks since prior radiotherapy - Concurrent palliative radiotherapy allowed provided: - No progressive disease - No more than 10% of bone marrow is irradiated -

No other concurrent investigational therapy or approved anticancer therapy - No concurrent illicit drugs or other substances that would preclude study - Concurrent therapeutic anticoagulants (e.g., warfarin or heparin) allowed provided there is no prior evidence of underlying abnormality with PT, INR, or PTT - Concurrent nonconventional therapies (e.g., herbs or acupuncture) or vitamin/mineral supplements allowed provided that they do not interfere with study endpoints - Concurrent bisphosphonates for prophylaxis or bone metastases allowed

Additional Information

Official title An Open Phase II Multi-Center Trial of BAY 59-8862 in Patients With Aggressive Refractory Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Description OBJECTIVES: - Determine the overall tumor response rate, including complete response (CR) and partial response (PR) rate, in patients with aggressive refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with BAY 59-8862. - Determine the overall survival in patients treated with this drug. - Determine the time to progression in patients treated with this drug. - Determine the duration of response (CR and PR) in patients treated with this drug. - Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxicity profile of this drug in this patient population. - Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of this drug in selected patients. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, open-label study. Patients receive BAY 59-8862 IV over 1 hour on day 1. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months until disease progression and then every 6 months thereafter for up to 2 years. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-140 patients will be accrued for this study.
