Brentuximab Vedotin Combined With AVD Chemotherapy in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Early Stage, Unfavorable Risk Hodgkin Lymphoma

Trial ID: NCT01868451


The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes across the 4 different treatment groups. The investigators hope that this treatment will improve the ability to cure more patients with HL and also limit the long-term side effects from the treatment. Although eliminating radiation in cohort 4 will eliminate the risk for long-term side effects from radiation, it is also possible that with BV+AVD chemotherapy alone there may be an increased risk of the Hodgkin lymphoma coming back after initial treatment.

* FDG-avid disease by FDG-PET/CT and measurable disease of at least 1.5 cm by CT
* Ann Arbor Stage I or II disease
* Disease bulk defined as any lymph node mass with transverse maximal diameter \> 7.0 cm OR coronal maximal diameter \> 7.0 cm on CT imaging
* Females of childbearing age must be on an acceptable form of birth control per institutional standards
* Ages 18 and over

Exclusion Criteria:

* Cardiac ejection fraction ≤ 50%
* Hemoglobin-adjusted diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide \< 40%
* ANC≤1000/μl and Platelets≤75,000/μl

* Known pregnancy or breast-feeding
* Known history of testing positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or known acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)
* Medical illness unrelated to Hodgkin Lymphoma, which, in the opinion of the attending physician and/or MSKCC principal investigator, makes participation in this study inappropriate.
* Peripheral neuropathy \> grade 1
* Patients receiving chronic treatment with systemic steroids. However, patients can receive up to 10 days of steroid therapy prior to starting treatment with BV+AVD.
