The purpose of this study is to determine whether using high-dose chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies, and targeted radioimmunotherapy will slow the progression of disease in patients with high-risk Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL).

Study summary:

This is a phase II efficacy trial for patients with untreated, high-risk, B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of high-dose chemotherapy combined with monoclonal antibodies and targeted radioimmunotherapy in previously untreated patients with high-risk NHL


Inclusion Criteria: - Untreated, biopsy proven B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma - Age >/= 18 years - No other prior malignancy except for adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, in situ cervical cancer, or other cancer for which the patient has been disease-free for one year. The patient cannot have been exposed to chemotherapy to treat any of these diseases for at least 3 years prior to study entry. - Meet staging studies and laboratory tests prior to induction, consolidation and radioimmunotherapy. Exclusion Criteria: - Significant medical and/or psychiatric illness which may compromise planned treatment; - Pregnant or lactating; - HIV-infection. - Patients with follicular lymphoma grade 1, 2 or 3A are not eligible for this trial.
