BACKGROUND Little is known about the longitudinal course of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma during their post-treatment follow-up and re-adaptation to normal life. We report on the HRQoL of patients treated in the randomised H8 trial of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Lymphoma(More)
We analysed the treatment outcome of primary refractory HD patients managed with high-dose chemotherapy and haematopoietic cell transplantation. Data of 65 adult patients who underwent HDC/ASCT in nine Polish centres for primary resistant Hodgkin's disease between June 1991 and July 2000 were collected retrospectively. Response rate to HDC/ASC: CR, 54%; PR,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term outcome of patients with limited-stage primary extranodal lymphoma of head and neck treated with definitive radiotherapy in low-grade and a combined radio- and chemotherapy in high-grade lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 1986 and August 1993, 63 patients with primary extranodal Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of head(More)
Patients with recurrent or refractory Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma are increasingly being treated with high-dose therapy and hematopoietic cell transplantation. As minimal disease status at the time of transplant has been a repeatedly proven significant prognostic factor for long-term survival, effective initial cytoreduction is an important step in(More)
ABVD remains a standard chemotherapy for Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) despite many efforts to demonstrate the superiority of other regimens. Bleomycin was proven marginally active in this combination (J Clin Oncol 22:1532-3, 2004) but adding significant toxicity. Response to ABVD is often slow and relapse rate of 20-30% is a concern. ABVD has never been directly(More)
The incidence of malignant neoplasms in pregnant women is rising dramatically. The management of such cases poses unusual medical and ethical challenges, particularly in hematological malignancies, when potentially teratogenic chemotherapy is indicated. We report a case of stage IIA nodular sclerosis Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL), diagnosed in a 24-year-old woman(More)
