Therapeutic value

Current treatment options Chemotherapie: CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicine, vincristine en prednison) of CHOEP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicine, vincristine, etoposide en prednison), eventueel in combinatie met een stamcel transplantatie.
Therapeutic value No judgement
Substantiation In de dubbelblinde, dubbel-dummy ECHELON-2 studie werden 452 patiënten gerandomiseerd tot Adcetris+CHP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicine en prednison) of CHOP. Progressievrije overleving was significant verlengd in de A+CHP arm (mediaan 48.2 maanden versus 20.8 maanden; HR 0.71 p=0.0110) Ook totale overleving was significant beter in de A+CHP arm (HR 0.66 p=0.0244). Indien er sprake is van mogelijke meerwaarde ten opzichte van de huidige behandelopties dan zal dit middel de eerste keus worden.
Duration of treatment Median 18 week / weeks
Frequency of administration 1 times every 3 weeks
Dosage per administration 1.8 mg / kg
