Most optimal treatment regimen for favorable risk early-stage HL remains unknown; however, many experts are in the favor of CMT for early stage Hodgkin's lymphoma.17,18 The aim of this study was to determine the outcomes of our patients who presented with favorable risk early-stage Hodgkin lymphoma who were treated either with chemotherapy alone or chemotherapy plus IFRT.
Patients treated with chemotherapy alone had on average 5.2+-1.05 chemotherapy cycles versus 3.6 +- 1.18 cycles among patients treated with chemotherapy in combination with involve field radiotherapy (IFRT).
To diminish the likelihood of local and systemic relapses, combination chemotherapy is generally considered, followed by involved field radiotherapy (IFRT
) [22, 23].

The researchers compared various chemotherapy regimens and IFRT doses and found that outcomes were similar when 30 Gy of IFRT was combined with either four cycles of ABVD (doxorubicine, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine) or four cycles of BEACOPP (bleomycin, etoposide, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone).
Rates of acute toxicity were higher with BEACOPP versus ABVD (73.8% versus 51.5%) and with 30 Gy versus 20 Gy of IFRT (12% versus 5.7%).
It appears, therefore, that the IFRT and IFC were the major players in drafting the version of CD 19.1 that made it to the floor.
The version offered on the floor was that of the COL and endorsed by the IFRT. One respondent criticized the ALA Washington office for being overly involved.
