Phase II Trial of Response-Adapted Therapy Based on Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for Bulky Stage I and Stage II Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL)
Principal Investigator (?)
Study Number
C50801
Summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more cancer cells. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill cancer cells. Giving chemotherapy together with radiation therapy may kill more cancer cells. Diagnostic procedures, such as PET scan, done before, during, and after chemotherapy may help doctors plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase II clinical trial is studying how well response-based therapy assessed by PET scan works in treating patients with bulky stage I and stage II Hodgkin lymphoma.
