This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of yttrium Y 90 basiliximab when given together with standard combination chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant in treating patients with mature T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Radioactive substances linked to monoclonal antibodies, such as yttrium Y 90 basiliximab, can bind to cancer cells and give off radiation which may help kill cancer cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carmustine, cytarabine, etoposide, and melphalan (BEAM), work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving yttrium Y 90 basiliximab and chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant may help kill any cancer cells that are in the body and help make room in the patient's bone marrow for new blood-forming cells (stem cells) to grow. Stem cells that were collected from the patient's blood and stored before treatment are later returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed.

Study summary:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine if administration of 90Y-basiliximab/DOTA (yttrium Y 90 basiliximab), when given in combination with standard dose BEAM, as conditioning for autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (AHCT), is safe, by evaluation of toxicities, including type, frequency, severity, attribution, time course and duration. II. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of 90Y-basiliximab/DOTA when given in combination with standard dose BEAM, in patients with T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (T-NHL) as part of conditioning for AHCT. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To characterize and evaluate hematologic recovery in terms of neutrophil and platelet engraftment time. II. To estimate radiation doses to the whole body and normal organs through serial imaging studies. III. To estimate overall survival, progression-free survival, non-relapse mortality and cumulative incidence of relapse/progression at 100-days (non-relapse mortality [NRM] only), 1-year and 2-years. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of yttrium Y 90 basiliximab. Patients receive yttrium Y 90 basiliximab intravenously (IV) on days -21 and -14, carmustine IV over 1-2 hours on days -7 and -6, cytarabine IV twice daily (BID) on days -5 to -2, etoposide IV BID on days -5 to -2, and melphalan IV on day -1. Patients undergo autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant on day 0. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30, 100, and 180 days and 1, 1.5, and 2 years.

a minimum of 2 collection procedures is required, unless collection on day # 1 > 5.0 x 10^6, CD34 cells/kg; a maximum of 10 collections is allowed; bone marrow harvest to supplement apheresis is not allowed - Recovery from non-hematologic toxicities of salvage cytoreductive chemotherapy to =< grade 2 (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] version 4 [v4]) - Body mass index (BMI) > 35% will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Radiation Oncology principal investigator (P.I.) - All subjects must have the ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent - Systemic chemotherapy or radiation cannot have been given within 4 weeks prior to the Y-90 dose of radioimmunotherapy (RIT), with the exception of single agent cyclophosphamide priming chemotherapy administered for mobilization Exclusion Criteria: - Progressive disease - Patients should not have any uncontrolled illness including ongoing or active infection requiring therapy - Patients may not be receiving any other investigational agents, or concurrent biological, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy; may have received an experimental agent prior to enrolling in the trial - History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to basiliximab - Pregnant women are excluded from this study; breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated with indium In 111 (111In-) and 90Y-basiliximab-DOTA - Prior high dose chemotherapy for autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation or prior allogeneic transplantation - Significant prior external beam dose-limiting radiation to a critical organ based on review of the prior radiation treatment records by the Radiation Oncology PI; patients who have had prior external beam radiation > 2000 cGy (at 180 to 200 cGy per day) to the lung will be ineligible; patients with ANY prior radiation to the heart are ineligible; patients with > 500 cGy to the kidney will be excluded from the study; Note: patients who have had electron beam therapy are still eligible and will be evaluated on a case by case basis by the Radiation Oncology PI - Presence of antibody against basiliximab in serum (only required for patients who have received prior antibody) - Research participants with presence of other active malignancy; however, research participants with history of prior malignancy treated with curative intent and in complete remission are eligible; any history of myelodysplasia is excluded - Active hepatitis B or C viral infection or hepatitis B surface antigen positive - Patients with a detectable human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) viral load or who are HIV-positive AND have a resistant genotype - Patients with psychosocial circumstances or illnesses that preclude protocol participation (to be determined by P.I.) - Any cytogenetic abnormality in the bone marrow that is known to be associated with or predictive of myelodysplasia is excluded;
