Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of the combination chemotherapy of DICE in the patients with NK/T cell lymphoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphoma Drug: IFO, VP-16, DDP, DXM Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients with NK/T cell lymphoma usually have a bad prognosis. These patients cannot be treated successfully with the conventional chemotherapy of CHOP.The investigators did this trial to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of the combination chemotherapy of DICE in the patients with NK/T cell lymphoma.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Official Title: Phase II Study of a Combination Chemotherapy of DICE in the Patients With NK/T Cell Lymphoma
Study Start Date : March 2007
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: IFO, VP-16, DDP, DXM Drug: IFO, VP-16, DDP, DXM
