For Hodgkin's lymphoma, the GPOH-HD-95 is the current treatment protocol. Inclusion in the EuroNet-PHL-C1 study should be assessed.
For treatment of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, there are 3 therapy groups with respective treatment protocols.
For the child and parents, these regimens often require outpatient visits and frequent hospital stays, both for administering chemotherapy and for treatment of neutropenic fever with intravenous antibiotics.
