Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing
so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation
may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells.
Giving immunotherapy using cyclosporine, interferon gamma, and interleukin-2 after stem cell
transplantation may help the transplanted cells make an immune response and kill any
remaining cancer cells. It is not yet known whether high-dose chemotherapy followed by
autologous stem cell transplantation is more effective with or without immunotherapy.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase II/III trial is studying how well high-dose chemotherapy
followed by autologous stem cell transplantation, cyclosporine, interferon gamma, and
interleukin-2 works and compares it to high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem
cell transplantation only in treating patients with refractory or relapsed Hodgkin's
lymphoma.
