Summary

This trial is testing if rituximab works better with or without stem cell transplant for mantle cell lymphoma in patients who are in first complete remission.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients with mantle cell lymphoma in first complete remission and no minimal residual disease. Candidates must have completed certain therapies, be eligible for stem cell transplant, and not have CNS involvement by the lymphoma. HIV+ individuals can join if they meet specific health criteria. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are excluded, as well as those with recent other cancers or without a confirmed diagnosis.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares rituximab effectiveness after a stem cell transplant versus rituximab alone in treating mantle cell lymphoma that's in remission. It looks at how these treatments affect cancer cells' growth and spread, involving chemotherapy to prepare for the patient's own collected stem cells to be transplanted back into their body.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Rituximab may cause infusion reactions, infections due to low blood counts, fatigue, and allergic reactions. Stem cell transplantation can lead to complications like graft-versus-host disease (where transplanted immune cells attack your body), infection risks from low immunity post-transplant, organ damage from high-dose chemo before transplant.
