|Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma||Drug: Rituximab|
Treatment with rituximab and chemotherapy (R-CHOP)is the accepted treatment for young patients with diffuse large B cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. However not every patient benefits with this expensive therapy. Recent data suggest that patients with BCL-6 negative lymphoma are more sensitive to Rituximab therapy. It is also known that patients with high-intermediate and high IPI risk does not benefit form standard three weekly CHOP chemotherapy.
In this study we intend to define a subgroup of patients in whom this therapy will be of maximum benefit.
We will prospectively treat a group of patients with the following characteristics:
< 60 years old low and low intermediate IPI risk BCL-6 negative B-cell NHL Treatment regimen: R-CHOP (standard dosis) for 8 cycles
