Answer

Many questions relating to salvage and HDC therapy for patients with Hodgkin lymphoma need to be addressed and are the subject of ongoing clinical trials. These include the following:

  • The optimal salvage regimen or regimens

  • The ideal conditioning regimen or regimens

  • The potential benefits of twin transplants compared with single transplants

  • How to prospectively identify those patients who are unlikely to benefit from HDC and how to best manage their disease
