  • [Title] Impact of age and colony-stimulating factor use on hospital length of stay for febrile neutropenia in CHOP-treated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • BACKGROUND: In intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients, full-dose CHOP improves survival but increases myelosuppression, causing febrile neutropenia hospitalization (FNH) in 28% of patients 65 years of age or greater.
  • Overall, 73% of these hospitalizations occurred within the first 2 cycles of chemotherapy, with 56% occurring within the first cycle.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Older NHL patients have a higher risk of hospitalization for FN and longer LOS.
  • The majority of hospitalization days occur in the first 2 cycles of chemotherapy.

  • In sequential studies, we compared immune reconstitution following high-dose chemotherapy (HDT) and stem cell transplantation (SCT) using intact mobilized peripheral blood stem cell (PSC) in intermediate grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients and CD34(+), lineage-negative (Lin(-)), Thy-1(lo) (CD34(+)Lin(-)Thy-1(lo)) stem cells in low-grade NHL patients.
  • Significantly higher levels of type 1- and 2-associated cytokine messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) were observed both prior to and following transplant in the peripheral blood (PB) of both cohorts as compared to normal individuals.
  • In contrast, patients receiving isolated CD34(+)Lin(-)Thy-1(lo) cells expressed significantly higher IL-2 levels at all times examined post-transplant.

  • [Title] [Treatment effect of DICE regimen on patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate and high grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma].
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: So far, there is still no standard salvage regimen for relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • The response rates (RR) of NHL patients received common salvage regimens, such as DICE, ESHAP, MINE, and EPOCH, are only 30%-70%.
  • This study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of DICE regimen, as a salvage regimen, in treating patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate and high grade NHL.
  • METHODS: Thirty-five patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate and high grade NHL, who had been pretreated with chemotherapy dominated by CHOP or CHOP-like regimen with a median of 6 cycles (ranged 2-12 cycles), were salvaged by DICE regimen from Jun.
  • The total RR was 74.3% with complete response (CR) rate of 31.4%, median response time (MST) of 4 months (ranged 1-30 months), median time to failure (TTF) of 7 months (ranged 2-34 months),median survival time (MST) of 14 months (ranged 3-51 months), and 2-year survival rate of 33.3%.
  • The RRs of T-cell and B-cell NHL were 85.7% and 66.7%.
  • The CR rate was higher in T-cells NHL than in B-cell NHL (50.0% vs. 19.0%, P=0.073).
  • The response to DICE reginmen was an independent prognostic factor of patients with relapsed or refractory NHL (P = 0.001).
  • Incidences of neutropenia and thrombocytopenia of grade III-IV were 71.4% and 8.6%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: DICE regimen is a safe and effective salvage regimen for the patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate and high grade advanced NHL.
  • The response to DICE regimen may directly influence survival time of patients with relapsed or refractory NHL.

  • [Title] Dose-escalated CHOEP for the treatment of young patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: II. Results of the randomized high-CHOEP trial of the German High-Grade Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Study Group (DSHNHL).
  • BACKGROUND: The addition of etoposide to combination chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone [etoposide to combination chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, vincristine and prednisone (CHOEP)] improved outcome of young patients with good-prognosis aggressive lymphoma.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Intention-to-treat analysis of 389 young (18-60 years) patients with good-prognosis (age-adjusted International Prognostic Index = 0, 1) aggressive lymphoma randomized to CHOEP-21 (n = 194) or high CHOEP (n = 195).
  • Neither low-risk nor low-intermediate risk patients benefited from high CHOEP.
  • High CHOEP was more toxic than CHOEP-21 (grades 3 and 4 leukocytopenia 100% versus 87.2%, P < 0.001; thrombocytopenia 80.8% versus 9.6%, P < 0.001; infections 35% versus 11%, P < 0.001; therapy-associated deaths 3.1% versus 0%, P = 0.03).
  • Since differences between chemotherapy regimens are compressed by the addition of rituximab, the results of this trial have bearing on strategies aiming to improve outcome of good-prognosis aggressive lymphomas in the rituximab era.

  • [Title] An oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy in patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate and high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • This study was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of substituting cisplatin with oxaliplatin in the DHAP (dexamethasone, cytarabine and cisplatin) regimen for patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Twenty-four evaluable patients with intermediate or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were treated at 3-weekly intervals with oxaliplatin (130 mg/m2, d 1), cytarabine (2 g/m2 for two doses, d 2) and dexamethasone (40 mg, d 1-4).
  • Grade 3 and 4 toxicity was mainly haematological: anaemia 17%, neutropenia 75% and thrombocytopenia 75%.
  • No grade 4 non-haematological toxicity was reported.
  • In conclusion, dexamethasone, cytarabine and oxaliplatin (DHAX) is a novel combination in salvage therapy for relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Lack of renal toxicity makes DHAX an attractive cytoreductive regimen before high-dose chemotherapy.

  • We conducted two phase I studies, in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and in lymphoma, to explore the possibility of intensifying chemotherapy by compressing the delivery of and escalating the dose of standard combination chemotherapy.
  • One study used etoposide and cisplatin chemotherapy in patients with unresectable stage III or IV NSCLC, intensifying chemotherapy by reducing the cycle length.
  • The second study used cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone, CHOP chemotherapy, in the treatment of stage II-IV intermediate or immunoblastic high-grade lymphoma, intensifying chemotherapy first by reducing the cycle length and then by escalating the dosages of cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin.
  • Fifty-five patients with NSCLC and 49 with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) were enrolled and treated in successive cohorts.
  • At standard dosages and intervals of chemotherapy, filgrastim support resulted in incidences of grade 3 and 4 neutropenia that were between 62% and 77% lower than those in the no-filgrastim control; the mean duration of neutropenia was, likewise, more than 80% lower.
  • In the NSCLC trial, etoposide and cisplatin were intensified by >50%, and in the lymphoma trial, cyclophosphamide was intensified by 270% and doxorubicin was intensified by 87%.
  • Chemotherapy reductions or delays for neutropenia were rare in the groups receiving filgrastim; but at higher chemotherapy intensities, dose-limiting thrombocytopenia was encountered.
  • We conclude that the delivery of myelosuppressive chemotherapy in both a dose-intense and a dose-dense manner is feasible with filgrastim support.

  • [Title] [Clinical analysis of liver non-Hodgkin's lymphoma].
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Incidence of liver non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is increasing.
  • This study was to explore clinical features, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of liver NHL.
  • METHODS: Records of 45 patients with liver NHL treated in our hospital from Jan.
  • 1998 to May 2002, 9.6% of all NHL patients treated in the same period, were retrospectively analyzed with statistic software package of SPSS10.0.
  • According to International Work Formulation (IWF), 92% of 45 patients belonged to intermediate-grade.
  • Clinical features of liver NHL were presented with fever, jaundice, hepatosplenomegalia, and liver dysfunction.
  • Combination treatment based on chemotherapy was the major therapy.
  • Median survival time was 4 months, overall 1-, and 2-year survival rates were 22%, and 18%.
  • CONCLUSION: Early diagnose liver NHL is difficult, its treatment effect and prognosis are poor, combination therapy should be given as early as possible.

  • [Title] The NHL-15 protocol for aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphomas: a sequential dose-dense, dose-intense regimen of doxorubicin, vincristine and high-dose cyclophosphamide.
  • BACKGROUND: The NHL-15 protocol is a novel, dose-intense, dose-dense, sequential chemotherapy program developed to improve outcome in advanced, aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: The phase II NHL-15 protocol comprised: (i) induction [doxorubicin 60 mg/m(2) i.v. on weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7 plus vincristine 1.4 mg/m(2) i.v. (no cap) on weeks 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7]; and (ii) consolidation (cyclophosphamide 3000 mg/m(2) i.v. on weeks 9, 11 and 13 plus granulocyte colony-stimulating factor 5 microg/kg subcutaneous on days 3-10 following each cyclophosphamide dose).
  • Patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (working formulation: intermediate grade or immunoblastic), bulky stage I and stages II-IV, were eligible.
  • Acute and late toxicities of treatment were manageable and acceptable.
  • Toxic death on treatment was 2.4%.
  • When the diffuse large cell lymphoma histologies were grouped according to the International Prognostic Index (IPI), complete remission and OS in the low-intermediate (LI), and high-intermediate (HI) risk groups were improved by 5%-15% compared with historical CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The NHL-15 program can be administered safely and effectively to achieve high rates of durable remission when used for the treatment of advanced stage, aggressive, non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
  • Further evaluation and prospective testing of the NHL-15 protocol appears to be warranted.

  • Between September 1986 and June 1998, 32 patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate or high grade lymphoma received intensified preparative therapy and underwent allogeneic transplantation at a single institution.
  • Patients were considered for allogeneic transplantation if they failed to respond to initial therapy, failed to respond to salvage therapy, relapsed after autologous transplantation, had bone marrow involvement, or failed attempts to harvest autologous stem cells.
  • Patients had a median age of 39 years and had generally received at least two chemotherapy regimens.
  • Survival was significantly worse in patients who had received high intensity brief duration chemotherapy prior to transplantation and was also significantly worse in patients who did not receive total body irradiation (TBI).
  • While treatment related mortality played a major role in limiting the effectiveness of allogeneic transplantation, in this heavily pre-treated population of patients with resistant disease, only 39% of patients achieved a complete response following allogeneic transplantation, and in only 40% of that group was long term disease free survival achieved.

  • [Title] Clinical characteristics and treatment outcome of 218 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in a Singaporean institution.
  • A retrospective analysis of 218 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) seen at a single institution in Singapore over a ten-year period was conducted.
  • Twenty percent, 56% and 24% of patients had low-, intermediate- and high-grade disease respectively using the Working Formulation, and 25% of patients immunophenotyped had T-cell NHL.
  • 86% and 73% respectively of patients with intermediate and high grade disease received combination chemotherapy as first line treatment, with CHOP being the most commonly used regime.
  • Seventy-four percent of patients with low grade lymphoma received first line chemotherapy, 5% each was treated with radiotherapy or surgery alone, and 21% was treated symptomatically.
  • Patients with low grade B-cell lymphoma had a 5-year survival of 80% and 10-year survival of 42%.
  • One-year survival for intermediate and high grade B-cell lymphoma was 76% and 42%, while 2-year survival was 67% and 42% respectively.
  • 1-, 2-, and 3-year survival for patients with T-cell lymphoma was 67%, 46% and 37% respectively.
  • The difference in survival between low-, intermediate- and high-grade B-cell lymphoma was statistically significant (p = 0.0018 using the log rank test), but that between B- and T-cell lymphoma was not.
  • Using the Cox regression model, International prognostic index, grade and extranodal disease were found to be statistically significant predictors of survival (p = 0.0001, p = 0.0157, p = 0.0343) respectively.

  • We performed a phase II, Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) clinical trial of recombinant human interleukin-4 (rhuIL-4) in patients with previously treated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • We studied 18 eligible patients with low-grade and 21 patients with intermediate- or high-grade NHL.
  • All patients had received prior chemotherapy.
  • A protocol amendment after the first four patients reduced the frequency of s.c. rhuIL-4 administration from daily to 3 times per week at 3 microg/kg and limited the number of prior chemotherapy regimens allowed.
  • We documented no complete or partial responses in the low-grade NHL group [0%; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0-19%].
  • One patient in the intermediate/high-grade NHL group developed a partial response lasting longer than 15 months (5%; 95% CI 0-24%).
  • Median survivals for the low- and intermediate/high-grade NHL groups were 15 and 13 months, respectively.
  • Our previously treated NHL patients tolerated s.c. rhuIL-4 at a dose of 3 microg/kg given 3 times per week, but objective response rarely occurred.

  • [Title] Primary gastrointestinal non Hodgkin's lymphoma chemotherapy alone an effective treatment modality: experience from a single centre in India.
  • BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal tract (GI) is the most frequently involved extra nodal site in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy (CT) have been used mostly in various combinations, but lately chemotherapy alone has emerged as an effective option.
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy of CT alone in treatment of primary GI-NHL and to compare the results with combined CT+surgery.
  • SETTING AND DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of case records of GI NHL patients.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Over a 15-year period (1986-2000), 77 new cases of primary GI-NHL were registered at our center.
  • GI-NHL was defined according to standard criteria.
  • All patients received chemotherapy.
  • Laparotomy was done in 58% (45) of patients to establish a diagnosis or as primary or debulking treatment.
  • Seventy eight percent of tumors were intermediate to high grade, 43% (33) received only CT while 57% (44) received CT+surgery.
  • CONCLUSION: Organ-preservation strategy using chemotherapy alone (CT) can be successfully employed in a significant number of patients with primary GI-NHL.

  • [Title] Patterns of chemotherapy administration in patients with intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Records from 653 patients treated between 1991 and 1998 in the Oncology Practice Patterns Study (OPPS) were analyzed to determine contemporary chemotherapy delivery patterns in patients with intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Of the 653 patient records reviewed, 90 (14%) omitted an anthracycline or mitoxantrone (Novantrone) from primary therapy.
  • Of 181 advanced-stage patients with responsive disease, 28 (15%) failed to receive at least six treatment cycles.
  • Overall, 283 (43%) of 653 patients potentially received suboptimal chemotherapy due either to choice of regimen or chemotherapy delivered.
  • Patient age > or = 65 years and cardiac comorbidity appeared to have the greatest influence on a physician's decision regarding chemotherapy administration.
  • Among the 492 patients who received CHOP or CNOP, 235 (48%) experienced a delay or reduction in chemotherapy dose (usually neutropenia-related), 100 (20%) developed mucositis, and 116 (24%) were hospitalized for febrile neutropenia.
  • This assessment of chemotherapy delivery to patients with intermediate-grade NHL showed significant variation from current standards.
  • Further analysis of factors influencing chemotherapy delivery might improve therapeutic outcomes.

  • [Title] Anthracycline-based chemotherapy of primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the testis: the hellenic cooperative oncology group experience.
  • Testicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is an uncommon disease and its outcome following chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy has been variable.
  • A retrospective analysis was performed on 26 patients with primary testicular lymphoma treated predominantly with anthracycline-based chemotherapy between 1984 and 1999.
  • There were 11 (42.3%) patients with high grade lymphoma, 12 (46.2%) with intermediate grade, 1 (3.8%) with low grade and 2 (7.7%) were not classified.
  • Chemotherapy was administered to 24 patients including 22 patients who received anthracycline-based chemotherapy.
  • Two stage IEA patients were treated with orchidectomy and adjuvant radiotherapy to the regional lymph nodes without systemic chemotherapy.
  • Chemotherapy alone resulted in a complete remission (CR) in 14 (58.3%) of 24 patients and partial remission in 1 (4.2%), amounting to an overall response rate (RR) of 62.5%.
  • Of the 5 stage I patients who had chemotherapy on an adjuvant basis, 4 (80%) had CR/no evidence of disease.
  • Excluding the 5 stage I patients, chemotherapy resulted in a CR in 10/19 (52.6%) patients and a PR in 1/19 (5.2%), inducing an overall RR of 57.8%.
  • After a median follow-up of 87 months (range 0.13-145.5+ months) the median survival time was 31 months (range 0.13-145.5+ months) and the median time to progression (TTP) 17 months (range 0.13-145.5+ months).
  • The other 2 patients who relapsed did not respond to salvage chemotherapy and died.
  • In conclusion, patients with primary testicular lymphoma have a poor outcome, despite the treatment with anthracycline-containing regimens.
  • Treatment with anthracycline-based chemotherapy is recommended in patients at early stages.
  • Because the relapse rate in the CNS and contralateral testis is quite high in most studies, prophylactic CNS treatment and radiotherapy to the other testis should be included in the management of testicular lymphoma.

  • [Title] Hepatitis C virus infection in patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: As a causative role of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (LPD) has been suggested by several reports, we investigated the prevalence of HCV infection among patients with LPD at our hospital with the aim of clarifying the clinical features and the outcome for HCV antibody-positive patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • PATIENTS: A total of 123 patients with B-cell LPD (4 with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, 17 with multiple myeloma, and 100 with B-cell NHL), 38 patients with non-B-cell LPD (5 with adult T-cell lymphoma, 8 with Hodgkin's disease, and 25 with non-B-cell NHL) and 516 patients with miscellaneous diseases other than liver diseases or LPD (control) were studied.
  • RESULTS: HCV infection was detected in 17 of 100 patients with B-cell NHL versus none of 25 patients with non-B-cell NHL (p=0.023) and in 34 patients (6.6%) in the control group with miscellaneous diseases (p=0.0011).
  • In HCV-positive B-cell NHL, primary liver involvement was detected in 3 of 17 patients compared to none of 83 HCV-negative patients (p=0.0019).
  • Intermediate-grade lymphoma (Working Formulation) was the most frequent histology.
  • Eleven of 15 HCV-positive patients achieved complete remission after chemotherapy, and 6 of 7 deaths were caused by liver-related diseases.
  • CONCLUSION: The prevalence of HCV infection was higher in patients with B-cell NHL than in those with non-B-cell NHL and the control group.
  • Primary liver involvement and liver-related causes of death were frequent in HCV-positive patients with B-cell NHL.

  • [Title] Treatment of AIDS related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with combination mitoguazone dihydrochloride and low dose CHOP chemotherapy: results of a phase II study.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the response and side effects of combination therapy with low dose CHOP chemotherapy and mitoguazone dihydrochloride in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma associated with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS-NHL).
  • METHODS: Eighteen patients newly diagnosed with intermediate or high-grade AIDS-NHL were treated with low dose CHOP as follows: day 1, cyclophosphamide 350 mg/m(2), intravenously (IV); doxorubicin 25mg/m(2) IV; vincristine 2mg IV; and prednisone 100mg given orally on days 1 through 5.
  • In addition, mitoguazone dihydrochloride was given at a dose of 600 mg/m(2) IV on days 1 and 15 of each 28-day treatment cycle.
  • Twelve patients had high-grade pathologies while the remainder had an intermediate grade pathology (diffuse large cell).
  • Three patients (17%) reported an AIDS-defining illness prior to lymphoma diagnosis.
  • The median failure free and overall survival times were 6.5 and 8.4 months, respectively.
  • Major toxicity was hematologic with grade 3 or 4 neutropenia in 72%; two patients died of neutropenic sepsis.

  • [Title] Weekly alternating combination chemotherapy for good prognosis AIDS-related lymphoma.
  • Early studies reported that the major adverse prognostic factors in AIDS-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (ARL) are low CD4 cell count, prior AIDS defining diagnosis and poor performance status.
  • These patients with one or no adverse prognostic factors were treated with alternating weekly chemotherapy using the bleomycin, etoposide, vincristine, methotrexate, prednisolone/cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin (BEMOP/CA) schedule (Bower M, Block C, Gulliford T, et al.
  • The International non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) prognostic factors project classifications were low risk 8 (maximum 5.4 years) (27%), low-intermediate risk 6 (20%), high-intermediate risk 11 (37%) and high risk 5 (17%).
  • 3 patients withdrew from treatment within 2 weeks due to toxicity, 2 patients died within 2 weeks of starting chemotherapy.
  • The major toxicity was myelosuppression with 14 patients developing grade 4 neutropenia.
  • The 2-year overall survival rate is 46% (95% confidence interval (CI)=27-65%), and lymphoma-specific survival at 2 years is 59% (95% CI: 40-78%).
  • For selected patients with good prognosis ARL 12 weeks BEMOP/CA therapy produces good overall survival at 2 years.

  • [Title] Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of bone: three cases and a short review of the literature.
  • Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a rare entity.
  • Histopathologically, PLB usually represents diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or lymphoma of the follicular center type.
  • Localized stages of the disease require involved-field radiotherapy (45-50 Gy) to the entire bone that is affected.
  • In cases of intermediate or high-grade lymphoma of bone, combined radiochemotherapy is the treatment of choice for all stages.
  • Six to eight cycles of chemotherapy (usually the CHOP regimen) are recommended for remission induction.
  • This is followed by involved-field radiotherapy with 45-50 Gy.
  • High-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell support is an option if there is no satisfactory response to conventional chemotherapy, or if early relapse occurs.

  • [Title] Chemotherapy for human immunodeficiency virus-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in combination with highly active antiretroviral therapy.
  • PURPOSE: This study investigated the efficacy, toxicity, and pharmacokinetic interactions resulting from simultaneous combination chemotherapy and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • In addition, the effects on viral load, CD4 counts, and opportunistic infections were examined with the use of combination chemotherapy combined with HAART.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty-five patients with previously untreated and measurable disease at any stage of HIV-associated NHL of intermediate or high grade were entered onto this study at 17 different centers.
  • Grade 3 or 4 neutropenia occurred in 25% of patients receiving mCHOP and 12% of those receiving full-dose CHOP combined with G-CSF (25% v 12%).
  • There were similar numbers of patients with grade 3 or 4 hyperbilirubinemia (12% and 17%), constipation and abdominal pain (18% and 17%), and transaminase elevation (48% and 52%) on the modified and full-dose arms of the study, respectively.
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) load declined from a median baseline value of 29,000 copies/mL to a median minimum value on therapy of 500 copies/mL.
  • CONCLUSION: Either modified-dose or full-dose CHOP chemotherapy for HIV-NHL, delivered with HAART, is effective and tolerable.

  • [Title] Primary treatment of low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma using an all oral anthracycline-containing regimen, chlorambucil, idarubicin, dexamethasone (CID)--a phase II study.
  • PURPOSE: The majority of patients with low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (LGNHL) are in the older age groups and are thus less able to tolerate aggressive treatment.
  • Chlorambucil, alone and in combination, has been widely accepted as the initial treatment of choice for many years.
  • METHODS: Patients (age less than 70 years) with a histologically confirmed diagnosis of LGNHL (Kiel classification) were eligible for the study if they had no previous chemotherapy.
  • Treatment consisted of chlorambucil 20 mg/ m2 daily for 3 days given on each day in three divided doses, idarubicin 10 mg/m2 for 3 days before breakfast, and dexamethasone 4 mg twice daily for 5 days.
  • All drugs were given orally.
  • Treatment was repeated every 21 days for a maximum of six courses.
  • The predominant toxicity was haematological, but in only one course did grade 4 neutropenia (less than 0.5 x 10(9)) occur.
  • Full doses of the treatment were administered to 40% of the patients, with no delays or dose reductions.
  • Six patients had static disease and two progressed on treatment.
  • Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) was found to be a good predictor of response to treatment.
  • Of 12 patients documented to have raised LDH, 5 failed to respond to treatment, compared to 1 of 32 patients who had a normal LDH (chi2 10.65, P < 0.002).
  • However, in patients with best and intermediate risk LGNHL (by the SNLG Prognostic Index for Low Grade Disease) overall survival are 88% and 64%, respectively.

  • [Title] The impact of age on delivered dose intensity and hospitalizations for febrile neutropenia in patients with intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma receiving initial CHOP chemotherapy: a risk factor analysis.
  • The purpose of this historical case series study was to evaluate the association of age on delivered dose intensity of initial CHOP (cyclophosphamide/doxorubicin/ vincristine/prednisone) chemotherapy and the occurrence of hospitalizations for febrile neutropenia for patients with intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Medical records of 930 NHL patients not enrolled on clinical trial protocols were reviewed.
  • We reported on 577 of the study patients (62%) who received initial CHOP chemotherapy.
  • In patients with advanced-stage NHL (stage III/IV), older patients received fewer cycles of CHOP (< 6 cycles, 35% vs. 22%; P < 0.05) than younger patients.
  • Multiple logistic regression models showed that older patients were more likely to receive a lower dose intensity (ARDI < or = 80%; odds ratio = 2.46, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.62-3.72) during their first 3 cycles of therapy and to experience more hospitalizations for febrile neutropenia (odds ratio = 2.17, 95% CI: 1.43-3.30).
  • We found the dose intensity of delivered CHOP chemotherapy for elderly patients to be less than standard CHOP therapy and the risk of hospitalizations for febrile neutropenia to be greater than in younger patients.
  • Prospective clinical trials examining supportive care measures, such as colony-stimulating factor, for elderly NHL patients are recommended.

  • [Title] Phase II study of 3-hour infusion of high dose paclitaxel in refractory and relapsed aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Groupe d'Etude des Lymphomes de l'Adulte.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The first clinical studies of paclitaxel as a single agent for the treatment of relapsed or refractory low or intermediate grade non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) yielded controversial results regarding the response rates observed, mainly related to the dose and schedule of administration used.
  • To obtain additional data concerning the efficacy and toxicity of paclitaxel in intermediate and high grade NHL we initiated a phase II study using a 3-hour infusion of high doses of paclitaxel.
  • DESIGN AND METHODS: The eligibility criteria included patients with relapsed or refractory aggressive NHL, a performance status < or = 2 (WHO index), a platelet count > or = 100,000/microL, a neutrophil count > or = 2,000/microL, measurable disease, and adequate hepatic function.
  • Responses were observed in intermediate grade (n = 4) as well as in high grade lymphoma (n = 2).
  • The main factor influencing the response to paclitaxel was the median duration of response to previous chemotherapy regimens which was 3 times longer in patients who responded to paclitaxel (16.3 months) than in patients who did not respond to paclitaxel (5.2 months) (p<0.05).
  • The most common serious side effects were related to the hematologic toxicity of paclitaxel, and included grade IV granulocytopenia in 20 cases (48%), grade III/IV thrombocytopenia in 14 cases (33%) and grade III-IV anemia in 13 cases (31%).
  • However, the clinical efficiency as a single therapy seems modest in relapsed or refractory aggressive lymphoma.

  • [Title] Immune dysfunction despite high levels of immunoregulatory cytokine gene expression in autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplanted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients.
  • OBJECTIVE: In the present studies, we examined the role of immunoregulatory cytokine gene expression in immune reconstitution following high-dose chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed the steady-state mRNA cytokine levels and the immune phenotype and function in the peripheral blood mononuclear cells from intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients prior to and following high-dose chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation.
  • RESULTS: Significantly higher mRNA levels of both type 1 and type 2 cytokines and monokines were observed in patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation as compared with normal healthy individuals.
  • However, T-cell function is significantly depressed compared with normal donors, which is associated with significantly higher levels of cellular-dependent T cell inhibitory activity and, we suggest herein, high levels of interleukin-10, a type 2 cytokine.

  • [Title] 'Relative' chemotherapy sensitivity: the impact of number of salvage regimens prior to autologous stem cell transplant for relapsed and refractory aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • The purpose of the study was to assess the impact of number of salvage regimens needed to demonstrate chemotherapy sensitivity on relapse rates, survival, and toxicity following high-dose therapy and autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT) in relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • We retrospectively reviewed 136 patients with intermediate-grade lymphoma who underwent ABMT.
  • All patients were treated with salvage therapy to maximum tumor reduction.
  • When compared to patients requiring >or= two regimens, patients requiring only one salvage regimen to demonstrate chemosensitivity were more likely to have a longer previous CR from initial therapy (CR >or=12 months in 47% vs 26%; P = 0.04) and to have attained CR with salvage (54% vs 16%; P = 0.001).
  • Time to engraftment, toxic deaths and incidence of myelodysplasia were similar in the groups.
  • The survival rate observed in patients requiring >or=two salvage regimens, although inferior to that of patients receiving a single salvage regimen, are still generally superior to results in the literature for patients treated with chemotherapy alone without ABMT.
  • We conclude that high-dose therapy with ABMT is appropriate for lymphoma patients even when disease reduction requires repeated numbers of salvage regimens.

  • [Title] Waldeyer's ring lymphomas: treatment results and prognostic factors.
  • Optimal management of patients with localized Waldeyer's ring (WR) lymphoma remains controversial due to the lack of randomized studies and heterogenous grouping of most reported series.
  • In this retrospective study, we have evaluated the possible prognostic factors and treatment outcome of WR non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Between December 1993 and February 2000, 32 patients with WR lymphoma, stage I (11 patients) and stage II (21 patients) were treated.
  • According to Working Formulation, 10 had high-grade, 17 intermediate grade, 3 low-grade, and 2 had unclassified lymphomas.
  • Combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy was the primary modality of therapy for intermediate or high-grade lymphoma.
  • Radiotherapy alone was employed only in low-grade WR lymphomas.
  • Chemotherapy was median 6 courses of CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin (Adriamycin), vincristine, and prednisolone) in 26 patients and CEOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, etoposide, and prednisone).
  • Radiotherapy volume was involved field and the median dose was 40 Gy.
  • Two patients developed recurrence, both salvaged with further chemotherapy.
  • Our results suggest that combined chemotherapy and involved field radiotherapy is appropriate treatment for stage I-II WR lymphoma.

  • [Title] Cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone chemotherapy and radiotherapy for stage I intermediate or high grade non-Hodgkin's lymphomas: results of a strategy that adapts radiotherapy dose to the response after chemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: A limited number cycles of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (CHOP) chemotherapy followed by involved field radiotherapy is the treatment of choice for Ann Arbor stage I intermediate or high grade non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL).
  • In this retrospective single-center study we evaluated the results of a combined modality treatment strategy that adapts the radiotherapy dose to the response after chemotherapy, and focus on the influence of radiotherapy dose on local control and survival.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: One hundred and forty patients with NHL Ann Arbor stages I/IE of intermediate or high grade malignancy received four cycles of CHOP chemotherapy followed by involved field radiotherapy (IF-RT).
  • The radiotherapy dose for patients in complete response (CR) after CHOP was either 26 or 40 Gy.
  • Patients in partial response (PR) after CHOP always received 40 Gy.
  • The influence of the radiotherapy dose on treatment outcome was evaluated for patients in CR at the end of treatment (n=128).
  • RESULTS: CR rates after chemotherapy and after radiotherapy were 67 and 91%, respectively.
  • Seventy-four of the patients in CR after CHOP received 26 Gy, 20 patients in CR after CHOP 40 Gy.
  • All patients in PR after CHOP (n=34) received 40 Gy.
  • The localization of relapse (within or outside the radiation field) did not differ between patients receiving 26 or 40 Gy.
  • Overall survival (OS) at 5 years for patients in CR after CHOP who received 26 and 40 Gy and for patients in PR after CHOP but CR after 40 Gy IF-RT was 76, 100 and 75%, respectively, (P=0.16), disease free survival (DFS) at 5 years 69, 90 and 75%, respectively, (P=0.52).
  • CONCLUSIONS: No statistically significant differences in patterns of relapse or survival were found between patients receiving 26 or 40 Gy IF-RT, however the number of events in all subgroups was small.

  • [Transliterated title] Chemoterapie BOVAPEC v primární lécbe stredne pokrocilých stadií Hodgkinova lymfomu.
  • DESIGN: Chemotherapy of BOVAPEC is the modification of temporary intensified Stanford V protocol, an effective primary treatment of advanced Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) in spite of limited toxicity.
  • Nitrogen mustard was substituted by less myelotoxic cyclophosphamide and the protocol has been used in the treatment of patients with an intermediate stage of HL.
  • METHODS: The primary treatment with BOVAPEC was started in 62 patients.
  • Complete chemotherapy schedule was administered to 60 patients (97%) and the median of its overall duration was 13 (12-18) weeks.
  • RESULTS: During the treatment, a neutropenia of grade 3 and 4 was observed in 14 patients (23%) but without the development of any serious infectious complications.
  • The manifestation of early non-hematological toxicity did not overcome grade 2.58 patients (94%) achieved the complete remission of HL.
  • The combination of BOVAPEC and RT in primary treatment was associated with higher probability of five years DFS but actually without statistical significance (88% vs. 58%; p = 0.08).
  • CONCLUSION: The BOVAPEC regimen with its acceptable toxicity may represent effective primary therapeutic approach to the patients with the intermediate stage of HL.

  • The effect of enhancing the dose intensity (DI) of the key drugs in multidrug combination chemotherapy for malignant lymphoma is uncertain.
  • We investigated the survival benefit of dose-intensified multidrug combination chemotherapy for intermediate- or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Patients without any prior chemotherapy were randomly assigned either to dose-intensified multidrug combination chemotherapy, LSG9 (VEPA-B/FEPP-AB/M-FEPA, treated 3 times every 10 weeks for 28 weeks total), or to control-arm combination chemotherapy, mLSG4 (VEPA-B/FEPP-B/M-FEPA, treated 4 times every 14 weeks for 54 weeks total).
  • The planned DI of doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide were 1.96 and 1.47 times higher, respectively, in LSG9 than in mLSG4.
  • The median actual DI of doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide were 1.56 and 1.17 times higher, respectively, in LSG9 than in mLSG4.
  • An increase in the DI of doxorubicin in multidrug combination chemotherapy did not improve the survival of patients with intermediate- or high-grade NHL.

  • [Title] Prognostic factors in patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma without complete response to first-line therapy.
  • This study was conducted to retrospectively identify the prognostic factors that specifically predict survival rates of patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who did not achieve a complete response (CR) to first-line therapy.
  • Prognostic factors in terms of survival were analyzed in 76 adult patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who had failed to achieve CR to first-line chemotherapy (CT) regimens administered at Istanbul University, Institute of Oncology, between February 1989 and October 1998.
  • In all, 92% had been administered anthracycline on the basis of computed tomography findings.
  • Of the 49 patients who had a PR to first-line therapy, 31 died because of disease progression.
  • Although median OS was 18.1 mo (range, 8.4-27.8 mo) in patients with intermediate-grade histology, it was 6.1 mo (range, 1-11.7 mo) in patients with highgrade histology (P=.001).
  • As a result of univariate analysis, significant rognostic factors associated with OS included histologic grade (intermediate/high) (P=.001), response to initial therapy (primary refractory disease/PR) (P=.005), performance status (0-2/2-4) (P=.024), and International Prognostic Index risk groups (low/low intermediate/intermediatehigh high risk) (P=.004).
  • Multivariate analysis revealed that independent prognostic parameters associated with OS included response to initial therapy (P=.009) and histologic grade (P=.001).
  • Although prognosis is rather poor in patients with high histologic grade and primary refractory disease, patients with a PR have a slightly better prognosis.

  • [Title] Tumor bulk as a prognostic factor for the management of localized aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: a survey of the Japan Lymphoma Radiation Therapy Group.
  • PURPOSE: To identify the prognostic factors that specifically predict survival rates of patients with localized aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • The 5-year event-free (EFS) and overall survival rates (OAS) were calculated, and univariate and multivariate analyses were done to identify which of the following factors, namely, gender, age, performance status (PS), serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level, Stage (I vs. II), tumor bulk (maximum diameter), and treatment, were significant from the viewpoint of prognosis.
  • RESULTS: A total of 1141 patients with Stage I and II NHL were treated by the Japanese Lymphoma Radiation Therapy Group between 1988 and 1992.
  • Of them, 787 patients, who were treated using definitive radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy for intermediate- and high-grade lymphomas in working formulation, constituted the core of this study.
  • 0001), radiation therapy alone (p < 0.0001), PS = 2-4 (p = 0.0011), (sex male, p = 0.0078), a bulky tumor more than 6 cm in maximum diameter (p = 0.0088), elevated LDH (p = 0.0117), and stage II (p = 0.0642).
  • A median dose of 42 Gy was delivered mainly to the involved fields.
  • Short-course chemotherapy was provided in 549 (70%) patients.
  • Tumor bulk is an important prognostic factor in patients with localized aggressive extranodal NHL.
  • Short course chemotherapy followed by radiation therapy was associated with prolonged survival in patients with localized aggressive NHLs of extranodal origin and 0-1 risk factor.

  • We conducted a multi-institutional collaborative study to examine the usefulness and safety of third-generation chemotherapy CyclOBEAP (cyclophosphamide, vincristine, bleomycin, etoposide, doxorubicin, prednisolone) combined with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in the treatment of aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Subjects included patients with aggressive NHL who were 60 yr of age or younger and had been diagnosed as having a low-intermediate, high-intermediate, or high risk using the International Prognostic Index (IPI).
  • A total of 24 patients were enrolled in the study between May 1997 and March 1998, including 9 low-intermediate-risk cases, 13 high-intermediate-risk cases and 2 high-risk cases.
  • Although all 24 patients were originally enrolled in the study, one adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma case was subsequently excluded.
  • Evaluation of the efficacy of therapy revealed complete remission in 20 patients (87%).
  • Of these 20 patients, 8 were low-intermediate-risk cases (89%) and 12 were either high-intermediate- or high-risk cases (86%).
  • Grade 3 or higher adverse reactions were granulocytopenia (87%), thrombocytopenia (17.4%) and liver dysfunction (4.3%).
  • CyclOBEAP therapy has been associated with a high remission rate for aggressive NHL.
  • When combined with G-CSF, a high relative dose intensity was maintained for each drug administered (0.94-0.97).
  • Hence, we concluded that there were no problems associated with the procedure in terms of safety.

  • [Title] Intrathecal chemotherapy alone is inadequate central nervous system prophylaxis in patients with intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Central nervous system (CNS) relapse of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is usually fatal despite therapy and effective prophylaxis is desirable.
  • We therefore analyzed the outcome of all patients with newly diagnosed "intermediate-grade" NHL receiving i.t. prophylaxis from 1991 to 1999.
  • Anthracycline-based chemotherapy was used in all cases and included high-dose methotrexate +/- ara-C in six patients.
  • The median number of i.t. treatments was 5 (range 1-12) and comprised methotrexate +/- steroid in 15, together with ara-C in 11.
  • Treatment-related variables associated with higher CNS-relapse rates (34-50%) were: delay of > or = 14 days from diagnosis to first i.t. injection, < 5 i.t. treatments, delay of i.t. prophylaxis until after attaining CR and systemic treatment lacking high-dose methotrexate +/- ara-C (each P < or = 0.17).

  • [Title] Outcome analysis for stage IE and IIE thyroid lymphoma.
  • Previous reports have revealed modest results in the management of thyroid lymphoma with radiotherapy alone.
  • This retrospective report evaluates the outcome of patients treated for thyroid lymphoma with radiotherapy alone and with combined modality therapy (chemotherapy and radiotherapy) at a single institution.
  • Twenty-seven patients with stages IE and IIE non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the thyroid gland were treated between 1960 and 1998 at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, of which 14 patients were stage IE and 13 patients were stage IIE.
  • The median follow-up time was 38 months (range: 3-279 months).
  • All patients had histologically proven non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, of which 22 patients (81%) were intermediate grade.
  • Treatment consisted of radiotherapy alone in 19 patients and a combined modality therapy in 8 patients.
  • The median radiation dose to the thyroid bed was 44 Gy, and most patients received a doxorubicin-containing regimen administered prior to radiotherapy.
  • Patient, tumor, and treatment-related characteristics were evaluated using Cox regression analysis.
  • Primary thyroid gland lymphomas have a favorable outcome with appropriate therapy, but prognosis depends on both clinical stage and age at presentation.
  • Because of the risk of both local-regional and distant failure, combined modality approaches that use chemotherapy with radiotherapy are warranted for intermediate- and high grade thyroid lymphoma.

  • We present the appearances on CT and MRI of a case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of uterine cervix.
  • Biopsy showed malignant high grade B-cell NHL.
  • T(2) weighted MRI of the pelvis showed a 12 cm intermediate signal mass replacing the cervix, with infiltration of the vagina and left parametrium, and bilateral internal iliac lymphadenopathy.
  • Whole body CT imaging showed lymphoma in the kidneys and pancreas, the latter associated with biliary obstruction.
  • The patient is in complete remission 7 months post chemotherapy, radiotherapy and stenting of biliary stricture.
  • The success of the cervical cancer screening programme has lead to a reduction in the number of cases of advanced cervical carcinoma and the presence of an unusually large homogeneous cervical tumour, with relatively scant necrosis should prompt suspicion of a less common histology such as NHL.

  • Patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) who fail initial therapy have a poor prognosis.
  • We conducted a phase II study to determine the efficacy and toxicity of didemnin B, a non-myelosuppressive marine compound, in patients with NHL who relapsed or progressed after receiving one or two previous chemotherapy regimens.
  • Twenty-nine patients had intermediate or high grade (IG/HG) disease and 22 patients had low grade (LG) disease.
  • Patients with IG/HG disease had a median time to treatment failure (TTF) of 1.6 months and a median survival of 8.0 months.
  • There were five grade V, 12 grade IV, and 57 grade III toxicities.
  • Didemnin B appears to have modest activity in low grade NHL.
  • However, the drug has considerable toxicity in this population of patients.

  • [Title] Molecular analysis of patients with relapsed or refractory intermediate-high grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with bone marrow infiltration undergoing peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation.
  • We have developed a three-step single strand conformational polymorphism PCR strategy which is able to detect clonal B lymphoid cells at a frequency as low as 1 clonal cell in 10(6) normal cells.
  • DESIGN AND METHODS: Twenty patients with intermediate or high-grade B non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) were evaluated.
  • Patients were pre-treated with a median of two (range 1-4) conventional chemotherapy lines before high-dose cyclophosphamide (HDCY).
  • Nineteen patients were offered high-dose therapy followed by peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPC) autografting.
  • RESULTS: MRD analysis was performed for each patient at the end of conventional chemotherapy and every three months after high dose therapy.
  • All these patients achieved complete response (CR) after high dose therapy (HDT).
  • Six patients relapsed after a median time of 24.5 months.
  • INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Whereas the detection of clonal cells in the apheresis samples did not predict an unfavorable outcome, the disappearance of the clonal rearranged band from the BM sample after HDT proved to be a favorable prognostic factor and was associated with long-lasting disease-free status

  • [Title] [Clinical analysis of 59 cases of primary gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma].
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Gastrointestinal tract is the most common extranodal involvement site of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • However, no standard treatment regimen has ever been established for primary gastric NHL (PGNHL).
  • This paper was to summarize the clinical characteristics and treatment results of PGNHL patients.
  • 2002 in Cancer Center of Sun Yat-sen University, were reviewed to summarize their clinical characteristics, and influence of treatment modality on their survival.
  • According to Working Formulation, most of them were in intermediate grade (46, 78.0%).
  • These patients were treated with chemotherapy plus surgery (37,62.7%), chemotherapy alone (17,28.8%), and surgery alone (5,8.5%), respectively.
  • For those patients in intermediate grade (including immunoblastic cell lymphoma), there was no significant difference in the 5-year survival rate between the patients received chemotherapy plus surgery and the patients received chemotherapy alone (52.5% vs. 57.1%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Chemotherapy-dominated modality is recommended for patients with PGNHL of intermediate or high grade.

  • [Title] Long-term results of dose-intensive chemotherapy with G-CSF support (TCC-NHL-91) for advanced intermediate-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: a review of 59 consecutive cases treated at a single institute.
  • We evaluated the long-term outcome of very dose-intensive chemotherapy (TCC-NHL-91) for advanced intermediate-grade lymphoma, in which an eight-cycle regimen with 11 drugs was given with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) support (total 18 weeks).
  • Forty-three patients (73%) were in a high-intermediate risk or high-risk group (HI/H) according to the age-adjusted International Prognostic Index (aa-IPI).
  • Forty-six patients received 7 or 8 cycles of therapy.
  • Grade 4 hematotoxicity was observed in all patients.
  • One patient died of sepsis during the therapy and one died of secondary leukemia.
  • This retrospective study suggests that the TCC-NHL-91 regimen achieves high CR, OS, and PFS in patients with advanced intermediate-grade lymphoma up to 60 years old and may be a valuable asset in the management of this disease.
  • Further evaluation and prospective studies of the TCC-NHL-91 are warranted.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical characteristics, international prognostic index and treatment of primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the nasopharynx.
  • METHODS: From January 1983 to December 1997, 136 patients with previously untreated NHL of the nasopharynx were retrospectively reviewed.
  • There were 18 patients with high-grade, 77 intermediate, 2 low-grade and 39 unclassifiable lymphoma.
  • Primary therapy was radiotherapy alone in 13 patients and radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy in 12 patients with stage I disease.
  • In 88 patients with stage II, radiotherapy alone was given to 31 patients, and a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy to 57 patients.
  • Chemotherapy was primary treatment for advanced stage III/IV diseases.
  • For stage I patients, the 5-year CSS was 83.1% for RT alone and 82.2% for combined modality therapy, respectively (P = 0.779).
  • For patients with stage II, the 5-year CSS was 46.0% for radiotherapy alone and 70.9% for combined modality therapy.
  • CONCLUSION: International prognostic index is an important prognostic factor for Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the nasopharynx and the combined modality therapy may be optimal for the stage II patients.

  • [Title] Autologous stem-cell transplantation for poor-risk and relapsed intermediate- and high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the outcome of patients treated with high-dose chemo-/radiotherapy or high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem-cell transplant (ASCT) for relapsed, refractory, or poor-risk intermediate-grade (IG) and high-grade (HG) non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Between February 1987 and August 1998, 264 patients, 169 (64%) IG and 95 (36%) HG, underwent high-dose therapy and ASCT at City of Hope National Medical Center (COHNMC).
  • The median number of prior chemotherapy regimens was 2 (range, 1-4), and 71 (27%) had received prior radiation as part of induction or as salvage therapy.
  • The median time from diagnosis to ASCT was 10.8 months (range, 3-158 months).
  • There were 27 deaths (10%) from nonrelapse mortality, including seven (3%) patients who developed second malignancies (five with myelodysplasia/acute myelogenous leukemia and two with solid tumors).
  • Our results further support the role of high-dose therapy and ASCT during first CR/PR for patients with poor-risk intermediate- and high-grade NHL.
  • Early transplant is recommended for patients failing initial induction therapy or relapsing after chemotherapy-induced remission.
  • Relapse continues to be the most common cause of treatment failure.
  • The development of a second malignancy is a serious complication of high-dose therapy, which requires close surveillance.

  • [Title] Primary ovarian lymphoma: report of cases and review of literature.
  • We report two cases with primary ovarian non Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) having unilateral involvement in one case while the other had bilateral ovarian involvement.
  • Histologically, by using the WHO classification, one lesion was classified as diffuse small B cell phenotype of intermediate grade and the other as diffuse high grade, B cell phenotype.
  • Both of the patients are disease free at 24 months and 6 months of follow up respectively, following excision and chemotherapy.
  • We conclude that that the complete remission and failure free survival of patients with ovarian NHL treated with appropriate treatment appear to be similar to that of patients with extranodal NHL.

  • Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in the front line treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) remains controversial.
  • Anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) is known to have its own clinical and biological features.
  • The outcome of ALCL patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy and ASCT as part of their first-line therapy was analysed in 202 intermediate or high-grade NHL patients in a prospective randomized trial.
  • First-line chemotherapy comprised two alternating anthracycline-containing regimens.
  • Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) expression was confirmed in seven cases.
  • These results differ significantly from those observed in the other 176 lymphoma patients: event-free survival was only 53 +/- 5% and OS reached 60 +/- 4% with a median follow-up of 56 months (P = 0.006).
  • Intensified chemotherapy with autologous stem cell support appeared effective in the treatment of ALCL, offering patients the real chance of a cure.

  • [Title] Busulfan and cyclophosphamide as a preparative regimen for allogeneic blood and marrow transplantation in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • This study reports on overall and recurrence-free survival (OS and RFS) of 37 consecutive patients with low- and intermediate-grade NHL receiving a related donor allogeneic BMT using a nonradiation-containing preparative regimen.
  • A total of 25 patients had low-grade, and 12 intermediate grade NHL.
  • Most patients (89%) were treated with at least two different chemotherapy regimens prior to BMT.
  • Seven patients (19%) died, six because of treatment-related toxicity and one with relapse.
  • Univariate analysis showed improved OS for younger patients and patients of female gender, suggesting that allogeneic BMT using busulfan-cyclophosphamide as a preparative regimen can achieve disease control and possibly cure patients with NHL particularly younger ones.

  • [Title] [Preliminary study on DHAP regimen for patients with relapsed and refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The treatment of the patients with relapsed and refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma(NHL) remains difficult.
  • It was reported that DHAP regimen(cisplatin + Ara-C + dexamthsone) was an effective salvage therapy, but there was no report about it in China.
  • The current study was designed to observe the efficacy and toxicity of DHAP regimen for the patients with relapsed and refractory NHL.
  • METHOD: Seventeen patients with relapsed and 10 with refractory intermediate or high grade NHL was involved in this study.
  • The effective release time lasted a median of 4.8 months.
  • Median survival time was 8.3 months.
  • Myelosuppression was the major toxicity; 15 patients(57.7%) had grade III-IV neutropenia and 21 patients (80.8%) had grade III-IV thromcytopenia, but there was no treatment-related death.
  • CONCLUSION: The authors conclude that DHAP regimen is an effective salvage therapy for the patients with relapsed and refractory NHL, but the remission duration time is short and long-term prognosis remains poor.
  • High dose chemotherapy supported by APBPCT is necessary for improvement in long-term survival.

  • A high incidence of nonrelapse mortality (NRM) has limited the use of allogeneic transplantation for poor prognosis non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • A total of 21 patients with intermediate/high-grade lymphoma and seven patients with low-grade histology were enrolled on protocols using PBSC.
  • Four of the 10 patients with recurrent/persistent disease post transplant responded to additional therapy including withdrawal of immunosuppression+/-DLI.
  • These results support a potent graft-versus-lymphoma effect and suggest that patients who relapse after an autologous transplant can be salvaged with an allogeneic transplant.

  • [Title] Stage I and II non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: results of combined of THP-COP chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • PURPOSE: We evaluated the usefulness of radiotherapy plus THP-COP chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, vincristine, pirarubicin (tetrahydropyranyl adriamycin, THP), and prednisone for stage I and II non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between October 1998 and October 2001, 32 patients with Stage I or II NHL were treated with THP-COP plus radiotherapy.
  • The histological type was intermediate grade in 29, high in one, and unclassified in two.
  • Doses of irradiation ranged from 18.0 to 46.5 Gy (median, 40.0 Gy).
  • Leukopenia of grade 3-4 was documented in 24 patients (75%) and thrombopenia of grade 3-4 in four (12.5%).
  • CONCLUSION: THP-COP plus radiotherapy appeared to be feasible for stage I and II NHL patients.
  • However, further evaluation is needed to determine the usefulness of this treatment.

  • [Title] Phase II trial of infusional cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and etoposide in patients with HIV-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Trial (E1494).
  • PURPOSE: To determine the effectiveness of an infusional chemotherapy regimen in patients with HIV-associated lymphoma treated before and after the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in routine clinical practice.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety-eight assessable patients with HIV-associated intermediate- or high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma received cyclophosphamide 200 mg/m(2)/d, doxorubicin 12.5 mg/m(2)/d, and etoposide 60 mg/m(2)/d (CDE) given by continuous intravenous infusion for 4 days (96 hours) every 4 weeks plus filgrastim.
  • Concurrent antiretroviral treatment consisted of the nucleoside analog didanosine in the first 43 patients enrolled before December 1996 (pre-HAART group), or HAART in the remaining 55 patients enrolled after that time (HAART group).
  • At the time of the analysis, 30% in the pre-HAART group were alive compared with 47% in the HAART group; when adjusted for varying length of follow-up, patients in the HAART group had improved OS (P =.039).
  • Patients in the HAART group experienced less grade 4 nonhematologic toxicity (22% v 42%; P =.037), thrombocytopenia (31% v 52%; P =.033), and anemia (9% v 27%; P =.021), and had fewer treatment-associated deaths (0% v 10%; P =.013).
  • CONCLUSION: Infusional CDE is an effective and potentially curative regimen for patients with HIV-associated lymphoma.
  • Patients treated in the HAART era have less chemotherapy-associated toxicity and improved survival.

  • [Title] Fertility status among women treated for aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • In young women treated for intermediate-high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with CHOP (cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, oncovine and prednisone), there is insufficient data concerning gonadotoxicity or the need for fertility-preserving measures.
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate the fertility status in the first complete remission of women who were treated for aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • A cohort of 36 women with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in first remission, who were treated in five university-affiliated hospitals in Israel, was evaluated.
  • Menstrual cycle characteristics, as well as pregnancies before the diagnosis, during treatment and in first complete remission, were evaluated.
  • All patients were treated with chemotherapy, although 10 patients received additional radiotherapy.
  • Follow-up time at first complete remission was 84 +/- 48 months.
  • Three patients received gonadtropin-releasing hormone analogs, whereas nine received contraceptive pills together with cytotoxic treatment.
  • During treatment, 18 patients (50%) had amenorrhea, six (17%) had irregular menstrual cycles, and 12 (33%) continued their regular cycles.
  • In 63% of patients, the menstrual cycle recovered within 3 months of the discontinuation of chemotherapy.
  • The two patients who developed amenorrhea were 40 years old at the time of diagnosis.
  • In conclusion, the rate of gonadal dysfunction is very low among young, CHOP treated, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma female patients.

  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Nasopharynx is one of the common extranodal involved site in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.However,no standard treatment regimen ever established for nasopharyngeal lymphoma(NPL).
  • The purpose of this paper is to investigate the clinical characteristics and treatment results of NPL.
  • METHODS: The authors reviewed the records of 75 NPL patients who were managed from June 1976 to August 2001 in Cancer Center,Sun Yat-sen University,to evaluate the influence of clinical characteristics and treatment modality on survival.
  • The most common pathological type was intermediate grade(95.2%) and the most common immune phenotype was B-cell lineage (68.6%).
  • These patients were treated with chemotherapy plus radiotherapy (64%),chemotherapy alone (23%),and radiotherapy alone (14%),respectively.
  • For the patients who treated with stranded CHOP (cyclophosphamide + hydroxydaunomycin + Oncovin + prednisone) chemotherapy regimen.
  • There was also no difference in the survival between radiotherapy dosage <or=50 Gy and >50 Gy.
  • CONCLUSION: The treatment modality for NPL should include systemic chemotherapy with CHOP regimen.

  • [Title] Regression and clonally distinct recurrence of human immunodeficiency virus related Burkitt-like lymphoma during antiretroviral therapy.
  • An increased incidence of intermediate to high-grade Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma is found in individuals with AIDS.
  • Although immune function in AIDS patients can be improved through the use of antiretroviral therapy, the contribution of these drugs to lymphoma regression is not known.
  • Here we describe the complete regression and subsequent recurrence of high grade, Burkitt-like lymphoma during antiretroviral therapy in a patient with AIDS.
  • Antiretroviral therapy resulted in diminished viral load and modest improvement in CD4+ T cell counts.
  • Lymphoma regressed initially, but relapsed 3 months later.
  • Tissue taken from the initial and recurrent tumor demonstrated different clonal rearrangements.
  • The recurrent lymphoma did not respond to continued antiretroviral therapy.
  • In Conclusion, antiretroviral therapy may contribute to lymphoma regression in AIDS lymphoma.

  • [Title] Outcomes of primary thyroid non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: a series of nine consecutive cases.
  • Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the thyroid gland is a rare disease with an incidence of 0.5 per 100,000 population.
  • Stages IE and IIE thyroid NHL have been traditionally treated by surgical resection; however, modern treatment consists of chemotherapy and local radiotherapy, and surgery is often reserved for tissue diagnosis and relief of airway compression.
  • We retrospectively reviewed the management and outcomes of nine consecutive patients with thyroid NHL, eight females and one male (median age 63 yr, range 34-71 yr) treated between 1994 and 1999.
  • Pathohistology and immunohistochemistry identified two patients with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), three follicular center cell lymphoma (FCC), two patients large B-cell lymphoma (BLCL), one a marginal zone lymphoma (MZL), and one patient a peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL).
  • One (MALT) patient underwent surgery alone; three patients surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy (two FCC, one PTCL); three patients surgery and chemotherapy (one MALT, one FCC, one LBCL); and two chemotherapy alone (one LBCL, one MZL).
  • The PTCL patient, a 34-yr-old man, died from disseminated disease at 13 mo despite secondary chemotherapy, and one LBCL patient with extensively invasive local disease died from stroke 17 mo after diagnosis.
  • With appropriate therapy primary thyroid NHL has a favorable course; however, prognosis depends on the histology, local spread, and the stage of the disease at presentation, as well as the patient's performance status.
  • Surgery in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy is still warranted for intermediate and high-grade thyroid NHLs, with over 77% of patients achieving long-term remission.
  • Peripheral T-cell lymphoma carries a poor prognosis.

  • [Title] Pilot study of modified version of CHOP plus radiotherapy for early-stage aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the head and neck.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a modified version of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone (pirarubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisone [THP-COP]) plus radiotherapy for early-stage aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the head and neck.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between December 1993 and December 1999, 41 patients with early-stage non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with intermediate-grade histologic features were enrolled in our study.
  • Chemotherapy consisted of 40 mg/m(2) i.v. pirarubicin (THP-Adriamycin), 750 mg/m(2) i.v. cyclophosphamide, and 1.0 mg/m(2) i.v. vincristine, on Day 1 and 40 mg/m(2) p.o. prednisone on Days 1-5.
  • The combination chemotherapy was given twice at a 14-day interval.
  • Radiotherapy was given to involved areas at a fraction size of 2.0-2.5 Gy up to a total of 40 Gy within 4-5 weeks.
  • Grade 4 neutropenia was seen in 12% of patients; however, 93% of patients (38 of 41) received chemotherapy as scheduled with the support of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor.
  • CONCLUSION: Biweekly THP-COP plus radiotherapy is feasible and effective for Stage I-II low-risk non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

  • [Title] When is hilar uptake of 67Ga-citrate indicative of residual disease after CHOP chemotherapy?
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and characterize the patterns of hilar uptake (HU) on 67Ga-citrate imaging after cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) chemotherapy regimens for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), to differentiate hilar lymphoma (HL) from HU of benign etiology.
  • METHODS: A total of 930 studies (698 planar, 232 thoracic SPECT) was reviewed retrospectively in 100 NHL patients (29 low-grade, 60 intermediate-grade, and 11 high-grade) treated with CHOP and followed up longitudinally with serial gallium studies (planar: median, 7; range, 3-16 studies in 100 patients; SPECT: median, 1; range, 0-11 studies in 72 patients) over a median duration of 36 mo (range, 6-112 mo) from diagnosis.
  • Clinical outcome and size changes over time on correlative CT and/or radiographs were used to evaluate benign versus malignant changes within the hila.
  • The prevalence of HU and HL at various time points was as follows: baseline HU, 52% with HL 60%; mid-CHOP HU, 59% with HL2%; post-CHOP HU, 52% with HL6%; follow-up HU, 76% with HL 9%.

  • [Title] High-dose therapy and autologous stem-cell support for chemosensitive transformed low-grade follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: a case-matched study from the European Bone Marrow Transplant Registry.
  • PURPOSE: To assess the outcome of high-dose therapy with autologous stem-cell support in patients with histologic transformation of low-grade follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and identify significant prognostic factors, as well as to compare survival of these patients with that of patients with matched low-grade and de novo high- or intermediate-grade NHL undergoing the same procedure.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty patients with transformed low-grade NHL have been reported to the European Bone Marrow Transplant registry.
  • Outcome from high-dose therapy and significant prognostic factors were analyzed.
  • Their survival was also compared with that of 200 patients with matched low-grade NHL and 200 patients with matched de novo high- or intermediate-grade NHL by a case-matched analysis.
  • RESULTS: The procedure-related death rate among the 50 transformed NHL patients was 18%.
  • Median PFS time was 13 months.
  • A subgroup of patients with residual chemosensitive disease who attained complete remission after high-dose therapy had the best outcome, with an OS at 5 years of 69%.
  • A comparison with matched patients with low-grade disease and with de novo high- or intermediate-grade lymphoma showed no significant difference in OS (P =.939 and P =.438, respectively).
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with chemosensitive transformed lymphoma should be seriously considered for high-dose therapy and autologous stem-cell support.

  • [Title] Treatment of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma with rituximab.
  • Intravenous administration of rituximab has been used for the treatment of patients with low-, intermediate-, and high-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and is a registered treatment modality for this indication.
  • Treatment of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (CBCL) with intralesionally or systemically administered rituximab has been described only in a few cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to assess the efficacy of rituximab in the treatment of CBCL.
  • Complete remission could be observed in 6 of 7 patients after 1 to 8 cycles of intralesional treatment with rituximab.
  • In one patient one of two lesions showed a partial remission after 4 cycles of treatment, whereas the second showed complete remission.
  • A local recurrence was observed in one patient after 27 months of follow-up and in two patients recurrences developed at other body sites after 12 and 14 months of follow-up.
  • CONCLUSION: Rituximab therapy is a well-tolerated and effective treatment for primary CBCL.
  • In comparison to intravenous administration, intralesional application of the drug allows the use of lower dosages.
  • Intralesional therapy with rituximab deserves further investigation and comparison to systemic administration of the drug in controlled multicenter studies.

  • [Title] Randomized phase II study of biweekly CHOP and dose-escalated CHOP with prophylactic use of lenograstim (glycosylated G-CSF) in aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: Japan Clinical Oncology Group Study 9505.
  • BACKGROUND: CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone) is accepted as the best available standard treatment for first-line chemotherapy in aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • However, the therapeutic efficacy of CHOP remains unsatisfactory, particularly in high-intermediate risk and high risk patients, and a new strategy is warranted in this patient population.
  • The aim of the present study was to explore a suitable therapeutic-intensified regimen for the treatment of aggressive NHL.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 1995 and July 1998, a total of 70 patients with high-intermediate risk or high risk aggressive NHL, according to the International Prognostic Index, were enrolled and randomly assigned to receive either eight cycles of standard CHOP (cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m(2), doxorubicin 50 mg/m(2), vincristine 1.4 mg/m(2) and prednisolone 100 mg for 5 days) every 2 weeks, or six cycles of dose-escalated CHOP (cyclophosphamide 1500 mg/m(2), doxorubicin 70 mg/m(2), vincristine 1.4 mg/m(2) and prednisolone 100 mg for 5 days) every 3 weeks.
  • The major toxicity was grade 4 neutropenia and was more frequent in the dose-escalated CHOP arm (86%) than in the biweekly CHOP arm (50%).
  • Grade 4 thrombocytopenia was also more frequent in the dose-escalated CHOP arm (20%) than the biweekly CHOP arm (3%).
  • Non-hematological toxicities were acceptable in both arms.
  • One treatment-related death (due to cardiac arrhythmia) was observed in a dose-escalated CHOP patient.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Similar complete response rates and progression-free survival rates, but lower toxicity, indicated that biweekly CHOP was superior to dose-escalated CHOP in the treatment of aggressive NHL.
  • Based on these results, the Lymphoma Study Group of the Japan Clinical Oncology Group is conducting a randomized phase III study comparing biweekly CHOP with standard CHOP in newly diagnosed patients with advanced-stage aggressive NHL.

  • [Title] [Treatment of stage II non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: analysis of 268 patients].
  • OBJECTIVE: To seek the optimum treatment for patients with stage II non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL).
  • METHODS: 268 patients with stage II NHL, treated from January 1987 to December 1993, received radiation alone (R-50), radiation plus chemotherapy (R + C - 73), chemotherapy followed by radiation then by chemotherapy (C + R + C - 72), chemotherapy plus radiation (C + R - 61) or chemotherapy alone (C-12).
  • A total of 206 patients was treated with combined treatment.
  • RESULTS: The 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-year survival rates were 95.1%, 87.8%, 87.8%, 85.4%, 82.9%, 53.6% in C + R + C group for patients with stage II high grade NHL, which were much better than those in the R group, R + C group and C + R group (P < 0.01).
  • For patients with stage II intermediate grade NHL, the 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-year survival rates were 89.3%, 75.0%, 67.8%, 60.6%, 57.1%, 46.4% in the C + R + C group, which were better than those in the R group, R + C group and C + R group (P > 0.05).
  • However, for patients with low grade NHL, the survival rates were similar both in the R group and the combination groups.
  • CONCLUSION: For patients with stage II intermediate and high grade NHL, combination therapy of C + R + C is recommended.
  • Radiation alone can only be used for patients with stage II low grade NHL.

  • [Title] Clinicopathologic characteristics and therapeutic outcomes of primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in central Anatolia, in Turkey.
  • Primary gastrointestinal lymphoma is a common presentation of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate clinicopathologic characteristics and the therapeutic outcome of primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • We carried out a retrospective analysis of 74 patients who were presented to our center with histopathological diagnosis of primary gastro-intestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma between 1990 and 2001.
  • The treatment choice concerning the surgical or non-surgical management was decided by the initially acting physician.
  • Treatment modalities were compared using the parameters of age, sex, histopathological results, stage, and the site of disease.
  • The intermediate and high grade lymphomas constituted 91.9% of the all cases.
  • The three year overall survival rate was better in stage I and II1 patients who were treated with surgery plus chemotherapy (+/-RT) than those treated with chemotherapy alone (93.7% vs. 55.6%, p < 0.05).
  • The stage and presence of B symptoms affected the disease free survival and overall survival significantly, but the histopathologic grade only affected the overall survival.
  • On the basis of these results, we suggest that surgical resection is necessary before chemotherapy in early stage (stage I and II1) patients with gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas because of the significant survival advantage it would bring to the patient.

  • [Title] External beam radiation therapy in the treatment of patients with extranodal stage IA non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • The purpose of this report was to study the results of external beam radiotherapy for patients with extranodal stage IA non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • A retrospective review was carried out on 27 patients seen between 1984 and 1998 with stage IA NHL of extranodal sites, and followed up for a minimum of 1 year.
  • Histologic analysis revealed 16 patients with low-grade NHL, 9 with intermediate-grade, and 2 with high-grade.
  • Ten patients received chemotherapy before radiation therapy, and eight of them had a complete response.
  • The remaining 17 patients were treated with external beam radiation therapy alone.
  • Radiation was directed to the involved field at 1.8 Gy to 2.0 Gy per fraction to a median dose of 40 Gy (range: 20-50.4 Gy).
  • A complete response was attained in all 27 patients after radiation therapy.
  • Older age at presentation showed a trend toward worse outcome (p = 0.07), but because of the relatively few events, other factors (radiation dose, grade of disease, sex, or the use of chemotherapy) showed no statistical differences among the patients.
  • External beam radiation therapy is a highly effective treatment for stage IA NHL found in extranodal sites.

  • [Title] Prognostic factors in the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Chemotherapy regimens similar to those used for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) not associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have been used for patients with HIV-associated NHL with less success.
  • In a recent trial, patients with intermediate or high-grade NHL were randomized to either low-dose chemotherapy with methotrexate, bleomycin, doxorubicin, vincristine and dexamethasone (m-BACOD) or to standard-dose m-BACOD with sargramostim (granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, GM-CSF).
  • Myelosuppression was greater with standard-dose chemotherapy.
  • In univariate and multivariate analyses of 21 pretreatment features of patients in this trial, four factors emerged as adversely prognostic with respect to survival: age >35 years, intravenous drug use, CD4 counts < 100/mm3 and stage III/IV disease.
  • The outcome of these patients may be improving with the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), which seems to improve immune function and tolerance of chemotherapy.
  • A recent trial of the AIDS Malignancy Consortium found that low-dose chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone: CHOP) and standard-dose chemotherapy had similar response rates, acceptable toxicity and minimal alterations in cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and indinavir pharmacokinetics in HIV-associated lymphoma patients also on HAART (stavudine, lamivudine and indinavir).
  • There is a suggestion that Burkitt-type lymphomas may tend to occur in HIV-infected patients with relatively well preserved immune function and CD4 cell counts.
  • Recent results from our institution suggest that similar outcomes are achievable with intensive chemotherapy in patients with Burkitt's lymphomas with or without HIV infection.
  • With improved immune status and improved bone marrow function with the use of HAART, it will probably become more possible to treat many patients with aggressive HIV-associated NHL with more intensive treatment regimens.
