Answer

Answer

For consolidation therapy, the NCCN recommends the following as first-line:

  • In patients who are candidates for it, high-dose therapy with autologous stem cell rescue (HDT/ASCR), plus rituximab maintenance (category 1 for rituximab maintenance)
  • In patients who are not candidates for HDT/ASCR, rituximab maintenance (category 1 following RCHOP)
