Numerous management options are available to patients with advanced-stage or relapsed/refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs). These include observation in patients with low-volume disease, systemic therapy including radioimmunotherapy, and high-dose therapy with stem cell transplant. In selected patients with localized symptomatic disease, local radiation therapy to sites of involvement can offer effective palliation. However, systemic therapy and standard-dose radiation therapy can… Expand
