The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of low-dose limited field radiation therapy (LDLRT) in low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients, in order to outline its possible role. The rationale of the analysis was as follows: (1) there is no clear dose-response relationship for radiation therapy (RT) in localized low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (LGNHL); (2) long-term disease-free survival can be achieved in advanced LGNHL with low-dose (1.5-2 Gy) fractionated… CONTINUE READING
