Condition(s) targeted: Hodgkin Disease

Intervention: Doxorubicin (Drug); Vinblastine (Drug); Cyclophosphamide (Drug); Etoposide (Drug); Vincristine (Drug); Bleomycin (Drug); Gemcitabine (Drug); Vinorelbine (Drug); Prednisone (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2

Patients with 3 or more adverse prognostic factors have a higher relapse rate. Significant anti-tumor activity in Hodgkin's lymphoma has been reported with two new drugs: gemcitabine and vinorelbine. The introduction of these new agents with their different mechanisms of action into the Stanford V regimen may increase effectiveness while maintaining a favorable toxicity profile with respect to fertility and a low risk of secondary leukemia. On this basis, we propose a new regimen, Stanford VI, for patients with bulky and advanced HD with 3 or more risk factors.
