In the presently planned multicentre Phase III trial the two therapies will be compared: Patients will be randomized after intensified induction treatment with 4 cycles rituximab, methotrexate, cytarabine and thiotepa (MATRix) between first-line high-dose chemotherapy against conventional consolidating therapy with 2 cycles of conventional chemotherapy with R-DeVIC (Rituximab, Dexamthason, Etoposide, Ifosfamide, Carboplatin).

Health conditions (Data source: WHO)

Primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) accounts for 1 to 2% of all Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) and for 2 to 7% of all primary CNS tumors. It's incidence has increased over the past 30 years, particularly in immunocompetent individuals. Over 90% of PCNSL are lymphomas of B-cell origin, accounting to the subtype diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. (DLBCL). Prognosis without treatment resembles that of systemic high-grade NHL, and the median survival of untreated patients with PCNSL is approximately 3 months.;Therapeutic area: Diseases [C] - Blood and lymphatic diseases [C15]

Primary end point (Data source: WHO)

Primary end point(s): Primary efficacy endpoint:
Progression-free survival (PFS) time from randomization until progression, relapse or death from any cause



;Main Objective: To demonstrate the efficacy measured as progression-free survival (PFS) of intensive chemotherapy followed by autologous stem-cell transplantation compared to conventional chemotherapy ;Secondary Objective: To compare high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation with optimized conventional chemotherapy regarding OS, treatment response and treatment related morbidities (neurotoxicity and adverse advents) in patients with primary CNS lymphoma.
;Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: Progression-free survival PFS:
Response Assessment III at the end of study treatment (EOT) visit and every imaging diagnostic assessments during follow-up period (for details see protocol intervention scheme, page 19):
during year 1-2: every 3 month
recommeded for year 3-5: every 6 month
recommeded for > year 5 annually
or imaging in case of clinical suspicion of disease progression or relapse

Secundary end point (Data source: WHO)

Secondary end point(s): Secondary endpoints:
Efficacy:
•Complete response (CR)
•Response duration
•Overall survival (OS)
•Quality of life (QOL): EORTC QLQ-C30
Safety:
•(Serious) adverse events
•Toxicity
•Neurotoxicity (MMSE, EORTC QLQ-BN20, neuropsychological test battery)
;Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: CR will be determined on day 60 after randomization.

Response duration observation times for patients where the event of interest was not observed, will be censored at the time last seen alive without the respective event.

For overall survival (OS), Quality of life (QLQ), (serious)adverse events (S)AEs, toxicity and neurotoxicity timepoints of evaluation are defined as every assessment during follow up period in accordance with the protocol.
year 1-2: every 3 month
recommended for year 3-5: every 6 month
reccommended for > year 5 annually
