Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of the combination chemotherapy of L-asparaginase plus DICE regimen in the patients with early stage NK/T-cell lymphoma.

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

Detailed Description:
DICE regimen was found to be highly effective as induction chemotherapy in patients with early stage NK/T-cell lymphoma in the ongoing study. L-asparaginase, an agent with unique anti-cancer mechanism, was also found to be effective in salvage setting. In terms of non-overlapped efficacy and toxicity, the investigators designed this phase II study to verify the efficacy and tolerability of this new combination.
