All but 1 patient had previously received at least 2 other treatments, including chemotherapy for 8, with dacarbazine, carboplatin, temozolomide, vindesine
, fotemustine, or cyclophosphamide; vaccination for 4; anti-CTLA4 antibody ipilimumab for 2 (10 or 3mg/kg for 1 each); NCT00324155 protocol: dacarbazine (850mg/m2 every 3 weeks) + ipilimumab (10mg/kg every 3 weeks) for 2; NCT00338130 protocol comparing AstraZeneca AZD6244 versus temozolomide, radiotherapy delivered to a cutaneous metastasis on the lower limb, and surgery for small intestine resection.
In case of a lack of response to the DTIC therapy, a cisplatin (or its analogues) combined with other cytostatic drugs (carboplatin, nitrourea, taxanes, vindesine
, and vinblastine) may be effective.
The patient underwent 4 cycles of chemotherapy with ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vindesine
, and dacarbazine).

, vinorelbine), taxanes (paclitaxel, docetaxel), epipodophyllotoxines (etoposide, teniposide), camptothecine and its derivatives (topothecan, irinothecan), and anthracydines (doxorubicin, daunorubicin, epirubicine, idarubicin).
A recent update of randomised trials conducted by the GELA group and others evaluating the efficacy of rituximab in addition to CHOP or intensified CHOP (namely, ACVBP: 75mg/[m.sup.2] doxorubicin and 1200 mg/[m.sup.2] cyclophosphamide on day 1; 2mg/[m.sup.2] vindesine
and 10 mg bleomycin on days 1 and 5; and 60 mg/[m.sup.2] prednisone on days 1-5) demonstrated that the benefit of rituximab is maintained over the years [1-7].
Postoperatively, the patient underwent five courses of chemotherapy with the R-THP-CVP regimen (rituximab, pirarubicin, doxorubicin, hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide hydrate, vindesine
sulfate, and prednisolone).
