Accelerated hyperfractionated total-lymphoid irradiation, high-dose chemotherapy, and autologous bone marrow transplantation for refractory and relapsing patients with Hodgkin's disease
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Bone Marrow Transplantation
Previously unirradiated patients with relapsing or chemotherapy-resistant HD who have exhausted conventional chemotherapy may still respond to an aggressive therapeutic approach consisting of accelerated hyperfractionated TLI, high-dose chemotherapy, and AuBMT rescue. This program offers a potential for long-term DFS to approximately one half of patients who would otherwise have a dismal prognosis with standard-dose salvage therapy.
