The combination of gemcitabine (G), vinorelbine (V), and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (D) has proved to be effective in relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). Its efficacy in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) remains to be discussed. We retrospectively evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of the dose-adjusted gemcitabine, vinorelbine, liposomal doxorubicin (GVD) in(More)
BACKGROUND Many patients with cancer experience depression and anxiety, and an associated decrease in quality of life (QOL) during radiation therapy (RT). The main objective of the study was to determine the benefits of psychosocial interventions for cancer patients who received RT.

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The prognosis of relapsed or refractory B-cell lymphoma is poor, with a short-term survival after conventional second-line chemotherapy. Rituximab, a chimeric anti-CD20 antigen, in combination with CHOP or CHOP-like chemotherapy may improve both disease-freely survival and overall survival of naive patients, but it's role in the(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The incidence of mucositis caused by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) is relatively high. The severe painful mucositis can reduce the quality of life of patients obviously. Transdermal fentanyl is efficient in treating chronic pain of cancer, and also can relieve the severe pain of mucositis resulted from(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to analyse the efficacy and toxicity of CEOP regimen in the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). METHODS From January 1995 to December 2000, 121 patients with NHL were treated by CEOP regimen with or without radiotherapy for the involved field. The clinical characteristics, response, toxicity and long-term survival(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE In vitro, arsenic trioxide (As(2)O(3)) can inhibit proliferation of many lymphoma cell lines. In clinic, it also can be used to treat many subtypes of lymphoma. But the dosage and administration ways are undetermined yet. In this research, we studied the antitumor effect of As(2)O(3) with different administration ways on T-cell(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The prognosis of relapsed or refractory T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (T-NHL) is poor. There is no definite prognostic factors and standard regimens for these patients. This study was to explore the prognostic factors and effective regimens for relapsed or refractory T-NHL. METHODS Clinical records of 45 patients with relapsed or(More)
