Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Experimental: rituximab, bendamustine & melphalan and ASCT
This is a phase I study of rituximab, bendamustine and melphalan (RBM) conditioning followed by ASCT in elderly patients with B-cell NHL. Conditioning regimen consist of rituximab 375 mg/m2 on days -11 and -4, bendamustine 160 mg/m2 intravenously on days -3 and -2; melphalan 140 mg/m2 intravenously on day -1 before the reinfusion of autologous stem cells on day 0. The conditioning timeline can be modified if there are patient scheduling conflicts. Patients who are deemed inevaluable will be replaced for the primary objective. Patients will be considered inevaluable if they don't receive one dose of conditioning regimen and are removed from the study.
Drug: - rituximab
rituximab 375 mg/m2 on days -11 and -4, The second dose of rituximab (day -4) is administered 7 days after the first dose (day -11), +/- 1 day. Rituximab may be administered by a local oncologist. If the participant has a CD20 negative tumor, rituximab can be omitted from the conditioning regimen.
Drug: - bendamustine
bendamustine 160 mg/m2 intravenously on days -3 and -2
Drug: - melphalan
melphalan 140 mg/m2 intravenously on day -1 before the reinfusion of autologous stem cells on day 0.
Procedure: - Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation (ASCT)
reinfusion of autologous stem cells on day 0.
