Potential Benefit of Radiotherapy for Patients Undergoing Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Objectives, structure and design of the Study
This will be a retrospective observational study for patients treated with ASCT, comparing those who received peritransplant RT with a subgroup who received a chemotherapy-alone regimen for a relapsed/refractory HL between 2004 and 2014.
Aim of this retrospective study is to investigate for a possible role for RT by comparing patients who received RT (prior or after ASCT) and patients who received salvage chemotherapy (CT) alone.
Overall survival (OS) at 3 and 5 years.
- Progression free survival (PFS) at 3 and 5 years
- Comparison of late effects between the two cohorts of treatment
