Primary Outcome Measures:
  • measurement of progression free-survival and overall survival at > 5 years [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Assess if the use of adjuvant radiotherapy improve outcome in patients with primary mediastinal lymphoma treated initially with R-CHOP

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • assess toxicity secondary to mediastinal radiotherapy [ Time Frame: > 5 years ]
    Assess if the addition of mediastinal radiotherapy to patients who received anthracyclines can produce an increase in cardiac toxicity

Enrollment: 198
Study Start Date: June 2002
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: June 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
