Incidence and risk factors of central nervous system recurrence in aggressive lymphoma--a survey of 1693 patients treated in protocols of the German High-Grade Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Study Group (DSHNHL)



Incidence and risk factors of central nervous system recurrence in aggressive lymphoma--a survey of 1693 patients treated in protocols of the German High-Grade Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Study Group (DSHNHL)



Annals of Oncology 18(1): 149-157



Central nervous system (CNS) relapse is a devastating and usually fatal complication of aggressive lymphoma. The extent of the disease, the proliferation rate and the sites of extranodal involvement have been discussed as risk factors. We analyzed the patients treated on protocols of the German High-Grade Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Study Group (DSHNHL) between 1990 and 2000, evaluated the rate and prognostic factors for CNS recurrence and developed a risk model trying to identify subsets of patients suitable for future prophylactic strategies. From 1993 to 2000, 1399 patients [60 years irrespective of LDH] were randomized to receive six cycles of combination chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone (CHOP)-21, CHOP-14 or six cycles of CHOP+etoposide (CHOEP)-21, CHOEP-14 in a 2x2 factorial study design in the NHL-B1/B2 studies. From 1990 to 1997, 312 patients
