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.
