Clinical Pearls:

  • The current standard of care for patients with classical Hodgkin lymphoma in the front-line setting is ABVD.
  • The phase I trial showed promising results in terms of safety and efficacy.
  • This randomized, multicenter, phase III trial comparing ABVD with A+AVD has the potential to change the standard of care.
