Abstract:

The Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) recently conducted a multiinstitutional phase II trial to determine the complete response (CR) and partial response (PR) rates, toxicities, and progression-free and overall survivals of patients with relapsed non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs) treated with a 24-hour continuous infusion of paclitaxel at a dose of 175 mg/m2.
