  Purpose

Unlike the limited stage diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with primary chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy, patients with stage I or II DLBCL would be treated with surgical resection followed by chemotherapy in this trial. While chemotherapy is the main treatment modality and radiotherapy becomes adjuvant treatment in the former treatment scheme, surgical resection will remove all the gross lesions and chemotherapy aims to remove all microscopic disease whichever exists in the latter treatment scheme. Currently, six cycles of chemotherapy is usually performed after surgery even without any residual lesion compared with three cycles of chemotherapy in the former treatment scheme which plays primary role in the treatment scheme. The investigators will investigate whether abbreviated 3 cycles of Rituximab Plus Cyclophosphamide, Adriamycin, Vincristine, and Prednisolone (R-CHOP) immunochemotherapy following complete resection is an effective and safe treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proportion of patients surviving 2 years after first R-CHOP chemotherapy with no relpase of DLBCL


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    proportion of patients surviving at 2 year after first cycle of R-CHOP chemotheray regardless of relapse of DLBCL

  • any adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: from the first R-CHOP to 1 month after completion of R-CHOP ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The number of patients with adverse events will be measured during R-CHOP chemotherapy according to CTCAE vesrion 3.0.


Estimated Enrollment: 23
Study Start Date: August 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3 Cycles of R-CHOP
3 Cycles of R-CHOP immunochemotherapy
