National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommendations  [27]

First-line therapy (in alphabetical order) options are as follows:

  • R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin [hydroxydaunorubicin], vincristine, prednisone) (category1)
  • Dose-dense R-CHOP (category 3)
  • Dose-adjusted EPOCH (etoposide, prednisone, vincristine [Oncovin], cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin) + rituximab (category 2B)
