The aim of this study is to prove the superiority of entecavir over lamivudine for preventing the risk of hepatitis B virus reactivation in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma on CHOP/R-CHOP.
Condition or disease
Non-Hodgkin LymphomaHepatitis B Reactivation
Drug: EntecavirDrug: Lamivudine
In china, previous studies showed patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) are likely to have hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. The risk of HBV reactivation is high when patients were treated with CHOP, especially in combination with rituximab. The aim of this study is to compare entecavir with lamivudine, 2 commonly used anti-virus agents, for preventing the risk of HBV reactivation in patients with NHL on CHOP/R-CHOP.
