Chemotheraphy -the most common; usually combination regimens

-Radiation theraphy
-Ritusimab administration
-Bone matrix transplantation: possible role relapsed high-risk disease
-Transfusion of blood products

Cytotoxic agents (Chlorambucil, Doxorubicin)- interfere the growth of neoplastic
Antineoplastic Agents, Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors (Vorinostat)
Monoclonal antibodies-(Rituximab) against the cd20 antigen found in malignant
b lymphocytes
Colony-Stimulating factors- (epoetin alfa, epogen, Procit) Regulates the
production of erythropoietin in the kidney to increase RBC.
Immunomodulators(interferon alfa 2a)- responsible for immune reaction
Cortecosteroids(Dexamehtason, Prednisone)- decrease the inflammatory
response, antii-inflammatory response by inhibiting the recruitement of of
leukocytes and monocytes.

-Ensure that the patient understand their diagnosis, treatment optioins and prognosis and
complication therapy
-Admit the patient if their complication of disease progression like dehydration secondary to
diarrhea, vomiting requiring IV hydration, severe mucositis and fevere with neutropenia.
