GELAD Chemotherapy and Sandwiched Radiotherapy in the Treatment of Stage IE/IIE Natural Killer/T-cell Lymphoma


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of gemcitabine, etoposide, pegaspargase and dexamethasone (GELAD) chemotherapy and sandwiched radiotherapy as first-line treatment in patients with de novo stage IE/IIE extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type.

Detailed Study Description

Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTCL), nasal type, is a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) with relatively high incidence in China. Radiotherapy alone for stage IE/IIE diseases has good response rate but with high relapse rates, ranging from 20-50%. The combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy improved the long-term survival for patients with stage IE/IIE diseases. But the optimal treatment schedule has not been established. This study is designed with two cycles GELAD chemotherapy, followed by 50-56Gy radiotherapy, and completed with additional two cycles GELAD chemotherapy. The efficacy and safety of this sandwiched chemoradiotherapy in the treatment of stage IE/IIE ENKTCL will be measured.
