Answer

National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommendations

NCCN treatment recommendations for stage I/II (nonbulky) disease are as follows [1] :

  • R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin [hydroxydaunorubicin], vincristine [Oncovin], prednisone) for three cycles, followed by involved-field radiation therapy (IFRT)

  • R-CHOP for six cycles with or without IFRT is an acceptable alternative

  • Patients who are not candidates for chemotherapy should receive involved-site radiation therapy (ISRT)
