Thirty-eight pretreated patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) and malignant non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were given combination chemotherapy with VM-26, Adriamycin, bleomycin, and prednisone. Four of 15 evaluable patients with HD achieved a partial remission (PR), with a median duration of 8 months. Of 12 patients with diffuse poorly differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma, one achieved a complete remission (30+ months) and five achieved a PR (median, 6 months). One of three patients with histiocytic lymphoma had a PR of 1.5 months. There was one drug-related death. Five patients developed life-threatening hematologic toxicity. Two HD responders died of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia.
