Great improvement in the treatment of patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) has been obtained with the introduction of new combination chemotherapy regimens in the 1970s. The hope that there would be further improvement has waned during recent years due to the fact that some controlled studies did not reveal any better results using the new more intensive treatment regimens. This is the reason for the question: are we doing any better?
