Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing
so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to
give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells. Monoclonal antibodies
such as rituximab can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing
substances to them without harming normal cells. It is not yet known if combination
chemotherapy plus peripheral stem cell transplantation is more effective with or without
rituximab for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying giving combination chemotherapy and
peripheral stem cell transplantation together with rituximab to see how well it works
compared to combination chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation alone in
treating patients with relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
