ABVD: Adriamycin (Doxorubicin), Bleomycin, Vinblastine, Dacarbazine

Regimen #1

Study Evidence Comparator Efficacy
Raemaekers et al. 2014 (EORTC/LYSA/FIL H10) Phase III ABVD x 3 -> INRT Inconclusive whether noninferior

4-week cycle x 2 cycles

Patients with a negative interim PET-CT (1 or 2 points on the 5-point Deauville scale) were randomized to receive 2 more cycles of ABVD versus 1 more cycle of ABVD followed by INRT 30 Gy (+ 6 Gy boost). Patients with a positive PET-CT proceeded to receive escalated BEACOPP followed by INRT 30 Gy (+ 6 Gy boost).

Regimen #2

Study Evidence Comparator Efficacy
Radford et al. 2015 (UK NCRI RAPID) Phase III ABVD x 3 -> IFRT Inconclusive whether noninferior

4-week cycle x 3 cycles

Patients with a negative PET-CT after the 3rd cycle (1 or 2 points on the 5-point Deauville scale) were randomized to receive IFRT versus no further treatment. Patients with a positive PET-CT proceeded to receive one more cycle of ABVD followed by IFRT.

  • 30 Gy of involved field radiation after completion of chemotherapy was given to patients with bulky (=10 cm maximum diameter) disease

Delayed treatment and discontinuations:

  • Treatment was postponed for at least 1 week or until recovery if:
    • Pretreatment ANC was <1500
    • Platelet count was <100 x 10^3
    • AST/S-GOT was >100 IU/L
    • Total bilirubin was >2
  • Vincristine (Oncovin) and Vinblastine (Velban) were temporarily discontinued if patients had grade 2 or greater neurotoxicity (e.g. motor weakness, paresthesia, constipation)
  • Doxorubicin (Adriamycin) was discontinued if cardiac LV ejection fraction was <50%
  • Bleomycin (Blenoxane) was stopped if the PaO2 was less than 70 mmHg or if it decreased more than 10 mmHg from the previous measurement
  • Note: Dacarbazine (DTIC) 250 mg/m2 was used at this dose reduction based on experiences in a pilot study in which there was severe emesis with Dacarbazine (DTIC) 375 mg/m2.

Supportive medications:

  • If dose reduction or delay occurred at any time during chemotherapy, Filgrastim (Neupogen) 5 mcg/kg SC per day x 5 days (starting 48 hours after myelosuppressive chemotherapy) should be given after all subsequent day 1 and 15 doses of chemotherapy. It was not precisely specified when to discontinue Filgrastim (Neupogen).
  • Ranitidine (Zantac) 150 mg PO BID throughout the course of treatment
  • Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim DS) (160/800 mg) PO BID throughout the course of treatment
  • Acyclovir (Zovirax) 200 mg PO TID throughout the course of treatment
  • Ketoconazole (Nizoral) 200 mg PO once per day throughout the course of treatment; note: this may be optional--Horning SJ et al. J Clin Oncol (2000) listed this as a prophylactic medication, but Horning SJ et al. J Clin Oncol (2002) did not list this when prophylactic medications were specifically listed.

Q28days x 3 cycles

  • 36 Gy of consolidative radiation (1.8 Gy in 20 fractions) is started 2 to 4 weeks after chemotherapy is complete and is given to sites of disease = 5 cm and/or to macroscopic nodules in the spleen.

Consolidation and/or maintenance after salvage therapy

Allogeneic stem cell transplant

Usually reserved for patients relapsing after autologous stem cell transplant, and then for younger and very fit individuals. The regimens below have been specifically studied in the setting of relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma; for other regimens please go to the transplant conditioning regimens page.

Regimen #1

To be completed. Treatment preceded by salvage brentuximab vedotin.

Regimen #2

Study Evidence
Sureda et al. 2011 Phase II

Treatment preceded by DHAP x 2.

Recipients of stem cells from matched unrelated donors also received:

Graft-versus-host disease prophylaxis

  • Cyclosporine A (not specified whether modified or non-modified) starting at 1.5 mg/kg BID IV on day -2
  • Methotrexate (MTX) 10 mg/m2 IV once per day on days +1, +3, +6, +11

If no acute GVHD of grade 2 or more, cyclosporine A is tapered down by 10% per week starting on day +90 with planned discontinuation by day +180.

Regimen #3

Study Evidence
Anderlini et al. 2008 Phase II

Patients had "chemosensitive or stable disease after salvage treatment." The regimen as reported here is what the authors were using towards the end of the study period; see paper for details.

Recipients of stem cells from matched unrelated donors also received:

Graft-versus-host disease prophylaxis

  • Tacrolimus (Prograf) IV starting on day -2, dosed to achieve serum levels 4–12 ng/mL and switched to PO as soon as possible. Continued for at least 6 months and then "tapered off" (instructions not given).
  • Methotrexate (MTX) 5 mg/m2 IV once per day on days +1, +3, +6 (extra dose on day +11 for MUD recipients)
