Ought to be supported individual patient and illness characteristics (age, comorbidities,would like for fast illness management, campaign for autologous transplantation, cytopenias, IgM-related complications, hyperviscosity, neuropathy). Autologous vegetative cell transplantation is also thought of in young patients with chemosensitiveillness and in freshly diagnosed patients with very-high-risk options.
Clinical studies have shown that combining rituximab (an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody) to standard chemotherapy regimens (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (CHOP) results in a major clinical benefit (increased response rate, and improved progression free and overall survival) in almost all subtypes of aggressive B-cell neoplasm, without relevant increase in toxicity.
