Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: Week 8 ]
    Patients were assessed using the revised response criteria for malignant lymphoma (Cheson). Patients were assessed for response, with CT and FDG-PET scans at 8 weeks, then every 12 weeks until radiological progression by clinical CT. Complete response (CR) was defined as disappearance of all target and non-target lesions in the liver and spleen and all lymph node masses regressed to normal size. Partial response (PR) was defined as ≥50% reduction in sum of the product of the diameters (SPD) for measured lymph nodes, splenic and liver lesions separately compared to baseline SPD. Objective response rate (CR + PR) analysis, exact binomial test, primary analysis.
