Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL) is an aggressive subtype of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and shows extremely poor survival. Several retrospective studies and singe-arm prospective phase 2 studies have shown that pegaspargase combined Gemox or CHOP regimen achieved a promising efficacy in treatment of ENKTL. However, there is no prospective study to compare the efficacy of these two regimens. This prospective pilot study to compare the efficacy and safety of the P-Gemoxd chemotherapy regimen with those of the P-CHOP regimen for stage IE to IIE ENKTL.
Treatment PA-Gemoxd dosages were as follows: days 1 and 5, 30-min intravenous infusion of 800 mg/m2 gemcitabine; day 1, 2-h intravenous infusion of 85 mg/m2 oxaliplatin; day 1, deep intramuscular injection of 2000 U/m2 PEG-ASP at two different sites; d1-5, intravenous infusion of 15mg dexamethasone. The regimen was repeated every 3 weeks for four cycles followed by involved-field radiotherapy after got CR, PR or SD. Three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy was done by linear accelerator at 2.0 grays (Gy) per daily fraction with 5-6 weeks. The involved- field radiation (IFRT) dose was 50-56 Gy.

Study of the Combination of Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, VELCADE, and Prednisone or Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Mantle Cell Lymphoma
This is a randomized, open-label, multicentre, prospective study to compare the efficacy and safety of the combination of VcR-CAP to that of R-CHOP in patients who have newly diagnosed man...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the addition of Cyclophosphamide in relapsed-refractory Multiple Myeloma patients (RRMM) who experienced biochemical relapse or progression without CRAB, during t...
Phase 2 trial of bortezomib in combination with rituximab plus hyperfractionated cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, and dexamethasone alternating with bortezomib, rituximab, methotrexate, and cytarabine for untreated mantle cell lymphoma.
Although the outcomes of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) have improved, there is still no cure. Bortezomib has a 33% response rate in relapsed/refractory MCL and has shown additive and/or syn...

Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.
Antineoplastic antibiotic obtained from Streptomyces peucetius. It is a hydroxy derivative of DAUNORUBICIN.
An anti-inflammatory 9-fluoro-glucocorticoid.
An anthracycline which is the 4'-epi-isomer of doxorubicin. The compound exerts its antitumor effects by interference with the synthesis and function of DNA.
A synthetic anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid derived from CORTISONE. It is biologically inert and converted to PREDNISOLONE in the liver.
