We retrospectively compared therapeutic results and adverse events in 198 elderly patients (> or = 70 yr old) with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma diagnosed between 1981 and 1995 who underwent CHOP, COP-BLAM, COP-BLAM III, or THP-COPBLM chemotherapy. Complete remission (CR) was achieved in 138 patients (69.7%). The CR rate was 47.0% for CHOP, 76.3% for COP-BLAM, 67.9% for COP-BLAM III, and 74.4% for THP-COPBLM therapy (p = 0.013). The 5-yr survival rate was 37.0% for CHOP, 49.0% for COP-BLAM… CONTINUE READING
