ASH 2018 | Tailoring chemotherapy: R-CHOP dose attenuation in elderly DLBCL
The impact of R-CHOP dose attenuation in elderly patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is poorly understood. Here, Graham Collins, MA, MBBS, MRCP, FRCPath, DPhil, of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford, UK, discusses the study investigating dose intensity between two cohorts containing those who are 70-80 years old vs. those older than 80 years old.
