Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtype which requires immediate treatment. Standard treatment is usually a combined immune chemotherapy with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP). Since R-CHOP was approved, several attempts to combine it with novel agents and/or use them as maintenance therapy failed to improve the outcome. Recently, maintenance with lenalidomide after standard immune chemotherapy showed promising results. This review discusses the most pertinent published and running studies, analyzing study design, results, and practicality.

Maintenance therapy has evolved as a strategy to prolong remissions in patients with diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) or mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), typically following a more intensive therapy, ...
Maintenance therapy post-autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (AHCT) with either lenalidomide or bortezomib for multiple myeloma (MM) have separately been shown to improve progression-free su...
We evaluated the clinical implications of the albumin to globulin ratio (AGR) in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine,...
Maintenance therapy after autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is recommended for use in multiple myeloma (MM); however, more data are needed on its impact on health-related quality of life (HR...
In multiple myeloma (MM), maintenance therapy is a longer and less intensive treatment course than initial therapy that is administered after induction to delay disease progression. Maintenance and co...
This phase II multi-institutional trial will explore the safety and efficacy of lenalidomide monotherapy given as maintenance therapy following salvage chemo-immunotherapy in patients with...
The purpose of the study is to determine the recommended dose (RD) of lenalidomide (Revlimid) when administered in association with R-CHOP (rituximab (R), cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vi...
This Phase 2, two-arm, open-label study is designed to evaluate the safety, clinical activity, predictive biomarkers and pharmacokinetics/ pharmacodynamics of durvalumab in combination wit...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety of rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine,prednisone (R-CHOP) in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected diffuse large B-cel...
This study is a multicentric randomized trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of R-CHOP given every 14 days compared to R-CHOP given every 21 days in association or not with darbepoetin...
Malignant lymphoma composed of large B lymphoid cells whose nuclear size can exceed normal macrophage nuclei, or more than twice the size of a normal lymphocyte. The pattern is predominantly diffuse. Most of these lymphomas represent the malignant counterpart of B-lymphocytes at midstage in the process of differentiation.
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
A human cell line established from a diffuse histiocytic lymphoma (HISTIOCYTIC LYMPHOMA, DIFFUSE) and displaying many monocytic characteristics. It serves as an in vitro model for MONOCYTE and MACROPHAGE differentiation.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
