Besides clinical trials, what options do NCCN experts recommend?

Peripheral T-cell

lymphoma, NOS

An option is 6 cycles of chemotherapy (CHOEP, CHOP-14, CHOP-

21, dose-adjusted EPOCH, or HyperCVAD/R-MTX-Ara-C). If

chemotherapy works, you may have a stem cell transplant.

If chemotherapy doesn’t work, there are cancer drug options with

or without a plan to have a stem cell transplant.

Anaplastic large cell

lymphoma

ALK-positive disease is often treated with 6 cycles of CHOP-21

or CHOEP. Stage I and II may also be treated with involved-site

radiation therapy.

If chemotherapy doesn’t work, there are cancer drug options

with or without a plan to have a stem cell transplant.

44

ALK-negative disease is treated with 6 cycles of chemotherapy

(CHOEP, CHOP-14, CHOP-21, dose-adjusted EPOCH, or

HyperCVAD/R-MTX-Ara-C). If chemotherapy works, you may

have a stem cell transplant.

If chemotherapy doesn’t work, there are cancer drug options

with or without a plan to have a stem cell transplant.

Angioimmunoblastic

T-cell lymphoma

An option is 6 cycles of chemotherapy (CHOEP, CHOP-14,

CHOP-21, dose-adjusted EPOCH, or HyperCVAD/R-MTX-Ara-C).

associated T-cell

lymphoma

An option is 6 cycles of chemotherapy (CHOEP, CHOP-14,

CHOP-21, dose-adjusted EPOCH, CHOP/IVE/MTX, or

HyperCVAD/R-MTX-Ara-C). If chemotherapy works, you may have

a stem cell transplant.

How do I decide between options?

Ask your doctors many questions. Also, you could get a second opinion, attend support groups,

and compare pros and cons.
