Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the activity of arms "R-MegaCHOP14/R-CHOP14 + R-MAD+BEAM and ASCT" and "R-MegaCHOP14/R-CHOP14" in terms of 2-years Failure Free Survival (FFS). [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the activity of arms "R-MegaCHOP14/R-CHOP14 + R-MAD+BEAM and ASCT" and "R-MegaCHOP14/R-CHOP14" in terms of 3-years Overall Survival (OS). [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  2. To evaluate the efficacy of two different dose-dense + Rituximab chemotherapy regimens in term of 2-years Failure Free Survival (FFS). [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  3. To evaluate the activity of the first four courses of two different dose dense + Rituximab chemotherapy regimens (standard dose R-CHOP14 or intensified dose R-MegaCHOP14) in terms of Overall Response Rate (ORR) and Complete Remission (RC). [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  4. To evaluate the efficacy of the four different induction arms in terms of 2-years FFS (exploratory analysis). [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
