Condition or disease
Drug: Standard CHOPDrug: Bi-CHOP (dose intensified CHOP)
The purpose of JCOG9809 was to determine whether treatment results of aggressive NHL could be improved by shortening intervals of CHOP chemotherapy with the prophylactic use of G-CSF. The primary endpoint was Progression Free Survival (PFS), and the planned accrual was 450. Until December, 2002, 323 patients with advanced aggressive NHL were randomized to standard CHOP arm (CHOP x 8, every three weeks) and biweekly CHOP arm (CHOP x 8, every two weeks).
