This study is for patients who have an HIV related chemotherapy-sensitive aggressive B cell lymphoma or Hodgkin’s lymphoma which has either not fully responded to the initial treatment or has returned.

Patients on this study will undergo and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant. An autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplant is when your own stem cells are collected from your blood, frozen, and then given back to you after you receive chemotherapy, also referred to as conditioning therapy.

This approach is fairly standard for patients with lymphoma. However, in patients with HIV, there are some special issues. This study is being carried out to better define the risks and benefits of this approach to therapy in HIV patients. Results of this trial will help guide treatment decisions for future HIV patients.
