Phase II study of oxaliplatin for treatment of patients with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma.

PURPOSE: Various chemotherapeutic regimens have been applied for treatment of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, but no standard regimen has been identified to date. In view of the activity of oxaliplatin (L-OHP) in various types of lymphoma, we performed a phase II study to evaluate the activity of L-OHP for treatment of MALT lymphoma. The primary objective of this study was to determine the objective response rate according to WHO standard criteria. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 16 patients with MALT lymphoma of various sites of origin (four of the ocular adnexa, five of the salivary glands, three of the stomach, two of the lung, and one of the colon and the breast) were administered L-OHP at a dose of 130 mg/m2 infused during 2 hours every 3 weeks. Restaging was performed every two cycles; treatment was continued until complete remission (CR) or for a maximum of six cycles in responders. RESULTS: Sixty-five cycles were administered (median, four; range, two to six); toxicity consisted of transient sensory neuropathy in eight patients and nausea/emesis WHO grade 2 in two patients, whereas hematologic adverse effects (thrombocytopenia and leukocytopenia grade 2) occurred in only one patient each. Fifteen patients responded to chemotherapy, with nine achieving CR (56%), six (37.5%) achieving partial response, and one achieving stable disease; the median time to response was 4 months (range; 2 to 4 months). CONCLUSION: These data suggest L-OHP is a highly active agent for treatment of MALT lymphoma. However, a longer follow-up is needed to judge whether these remissions are durable.[1]
