11 (NCI 6485) A Phase II Study of Rituximab-CHOP with Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin in Patients Older than 60 Years of Age with Untreated Aggressive B-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Summary of Protocol Findings –80 patients were enrolled on the trial and evaluated for response, cardiotoxicity, and myelosuppression. –74 patients were evaluable for response after 4 courses of therapy. –54 (73%) patients achieved a CR / 14 (19%) patients achieved a PR –The overall response rate was 92%. –Response assessment after 8 courses of therapy was performed on 63 evaluable patients. –The overall response rate for the 63 evaluable patients after 8 cycles was 89%. Treatment: CNPE

12 (NCI 6485) A Phase II Study of Rituximab-CHOP with Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin in Patients Older than 60 Years of Age with Untreated Aggressive B-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Summary of Protocol Findings –Of the 80 patients enrolled, 12 (15%) patients reported grade 3 cardiac events, including hypotension (3), tachycardia (1), hypertension (2), decreased ejection fraction (1), chest pain (2), arrhythmia (3), coronary artery disease (1), acute coronary syndrome and diastolic dysfunction (1), TIA (1), and pericarditis (1). –Other Grade 3-4 toxicities reported in >10% of patients were: fatigue (27), leucopenia (31), lymphopenia (35), neutropenia (34), and anemia (12). Treatment: CNPE

13 (NCI 7548) Single-arm, Open-label, Phase II Trial of Rituximab plus Sargramostim for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Follicular B- cell Lymphoma in Adults New Principal Investigator Nathan Fowler, MD, MD Anderson Cancer Center Patient Population: A total of 52 patients with newly diagnosed follicular B cell lymphoma were enrolled. Closed to new patient entry 05/01/2009. Top Enrolling CCOP Sites: Wichita CCOP, Grand Rapids CCOP Treatment: CNPE

14 (NCI 7548) Single-arm, Open-label, Phase II Trial of Rituximab plus Sargramostim for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Follicular B-cell Lymphoma in Adults Summary of Protocol Findings –52 pts were enrolled on study, and all were eligible for assessment. The median age was 56 (31-78), and 62% were male. –56% of patients had intermediate or high risk FLIPI. Fifteen (29%) pts had bulky disease (>5cm), and 29 (56%) pts had elevated B2M. –Tolerance was good; and effects attributable to GM-CSF were minor. Absolute granulocyte count (AGC) elevation above 15K occurred in only 4% of pts; conversely, grade 3 neutropenia occurred in 8 pts. No significant infections occurred. Treatment: CNPE

15 (NCI 7548) Single-arm, Open-label, Phase II Trial of Rituximab plus Sargramostim for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Follicular B-cell Lymphoma in Adults Summary of Protocol Findings –At 3 months, the overall response rate was 69%, including 23% of pts with a CR. With continued follow up, response rates improved (ORR 74%, CR 42%). Twenty four (46%) pts remain in remission without further treatment. At a median follow up of 14 months the median PFS of all pts was 28 months, including pts with bulky disease (median PFS of 16 mo). No difference in PFS was observed when comparing FLIPI score (0-1) vs (2-3) or B2M. –Conclusion: Rituximab plus GM-CSF is well tolerated and active in untreated pts with FL. There did not appear to be significant difference in outcomes when comparing FLIPI scores, although PFS was inferior in patients with bulky disease. Randomized studies are required to determine whether this combination is superior to rituximab as a single agent. Treatment: CNPE

19 (NCI MDA ) CAM Use and Cancer Principal Investigator: Patricia Ann Parker, PhD, MD Anderson Cancer Center Patient Population:. Oncology nurses with regular interactions with patients who are at least one week post diagnosis of cancer and not greater than 6 months post treatment target accrual. Top Enrolling CCOP Sites: Metro-Minnesota CCOP, Central Illinois CCOP, Grand Rapids Clinical Oncology Program, Boston Medical Center Cancer Control: Active Baseline Patient Assessment Random Assignment to Intervention or Waitlist Control Baseline Provider Assessment CD/Video and Resource List Baseline Provider Assessment Enrollment of Nurses/Providers at Participating CCOPs CD/Video and Resource List 1 Week Provider and Patient Follow-Up Assessment 2 Weeks Provider and Patient Follow-up Assessment 2 Months

20 Preliminary Findings – ASCO 2010 –Patients were 65% female, 86% non-Hispanic white, average age of 59 (range 23-88), and 30% had a college degree or higher. –The most common cancers were breast cancer (31%), lung cancer (12%), and colorectal cancer (10%). –39% indicated that they have used one or more CAM therapies following their cancer diagnosis (NCI MDA ) CAM Use and Cancer Cancer Control: Active

21 (NCI MDA ) CAM Use and Cancer Preliminary Findings Continued –The most common categories of CAM used by patients were: massage therapy (19%) relaxation techniques (19%) special diet (18%) megavitamins (15%) –Reasons for using CAM included: believes CAM beneficial (27%) to address the emotional and spiritual aspects of the disease (23%) and to boost immune system (21%) Cancer Control: Active

22 (NCI MDA ) CAM Use and Cancer Preliminary Findings Continued –Patients indicated that 9% of their physicians and 12% of nurses had asked them about their use of CAM at that oncology visit. –Twenty-one percent of patients reported that they initiated a discussion with their providers about their use of CAM and the most common responses were: encouraged me to continue (13%) and was neutral (7%). –Reasons for not telling healthcare practitioners about CAM use included: my healthcare provider never asked (27%) and unsure if CAM beneficial (18%). Cancer Control: Active

23 (NCI MDA ) CAM Use and Cancer Conclusions: More than one third of patients indicated that they used some type of CAM therapy and the majority of their providers did not ask them about their CAM use. There remains considerable uncertainty among patients about the role of CAM in the context of cancer care. Cancer Control: Active

37 Closed Cancer Control Protocols

38 (NCI CCC 03-27) Prevention of Cisplatin- or Oxaliplatin-induced Peripheral Neuropathy with Alpha-lipoic Acid: A Placebo-controlled Phase III Trial Principal Investigator: Ying Guo, MD, MD Anderson Cancer Center Methodology: Patient Population : A total of 244 patients who were scheduled to receive chemotherapy that contains platinum in the regimen were enrolled. Closed to new patient enrollment 11/02/2009. Top Enrolling CCOP Sites: Metro-Minnesota CCOP, Wichita CCOP, Greenville CCOP, Marshfield Clinic, Christus St Frances Cabrini Hospital Cancer Control: CNPE

39 (NCI CCC 03-27) Prevention of Cisplatin- or Oxaliplatin-induced Peripheral Neuropathy with Alpha-lipoic Acid: A Placebo-controlled Phase III Trial Of 243 pts randomized, 121 pts (51%) completed treatment for 12 weeks. At 24 weeks, only 34 evaluable pts remained in the ALA group, and 36 in the placebo group (p= 0.75). No statistical difference was noted in dose intensity for the oxaliplatin arm of the ALA group and the placebo group (median of 765 mg/m2 vs mg/m2, p=0.18). No significant differences were noted for either FACT/GOG-NTX scores (p=0.70), neurotoxicity (p=0.87), or best tumor responses between the 2 groups (p=0.85). Cancer Control: CNPE

40 (NCI CCC 03-27) Prevention of Cisplatin- or Oxaliplatin-induced Peripheral Neuropathy with Alpha-lipoic Acid: A Placebo-controlled Phase III Trial Conclusions: Oral ALA 600 mg PO TID was ineffective at preventing neurotoxicity caused by oxaliplatin or cisplatin. Intense schedules of oral agents in the symptom/toxicity prevention setting created adherence challenges due to pill size and frequency of administration. Poor adherence might affect the power to detect ALAs effectiveness in this trial. Innovative drug delivery and trial designs are needed to further explore alpha lipoic acid in the prevention and/or reduction of chemotherapy-induced neuropathy. Cancer Control: CNPE
