Since the introduction of Adriamycin (ADR) in the late 1960s, it has been widely applied to the treatment of various types of malignancies, including breast cancer, multiple myeloma, neuroblastoma, leukaemia, and sarcomas, and it is associated with satisfactory clinical effects [1, 2].
Long term safety concerns which emerged with the use of radiotherapy led to use of chemotherapy alone for treatment of early-stage favorable risk HL resulting in more or less similar outcome as shown with CMT.12,13 Recent trials for patients with limited-stage HL have demonstrated that treatment with chemotherapy plus involved-field radiation therapy (IFRT) and chemotherapy alone with Doxorubicin (Adriamycin), Bleomycin, Vinblastine, and Dacarbazine (ABVD) may both be acceptable options for these patients.5,14 Some studies have highlighted the role of interim PET/CT to guide treatment; however, this approach may not be applicable everywhere because the availability of this imaging modality is still sparse in many countries.15,16
