Ten patients with advanced, diffuse Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas responding poorly to the most widely employed primary chemotherapy regimens were treated with a high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) followed by rescue with non-frozen autologous bone marrow infusion (ABMT). Complete remission (CR) was obtained in seven of ten patients (70%) and partial remission in two. Hemopoietic recovery occurred in nine cases. These preliminary results appear to indicate that HDC and non-frozen ABMT may be successfully used in patients with resistant or relapsed lymphomas.
