abstract

  • Up-front chemotherapy as initial treatment for primary gastric large-cell lymphoma appears to be a safe and effective treatment by which most patients can probably be spared surgical gastrectomy. Consolidation radiation therapy on the stomach can probably improve on the effectiveness of chemotherapy alone. More experience is needed to elucidate the prognostic factors, treatment-related long-term toxic effects and the feasibility of such a treatment administered outside of highly specialized institutions.
