- literature-search strategy and inclusion;
- patients with localized stages I and II DLBCL;
- rituximab with second-line chemotherapy prior to autologous transplantation for patients;

This chapter contains sections titled:
Literature-search strategy and inclusion
Should patients with DLBCL receive involved-field radiation as part of primary therapy?
Should patients with a good response to chemotherapy who are at high risk for recurrence receive consolidation with autologous stem cell transplantation?
Should rituximab be added to second-line therapy for patients with relapsed disease?
Should patients with advanced DLBCL receive dose-dense chemotherapy supported by growth factors?
Should older patients with DLBCL receive CHOP chemotherapy with curative intent?
