A group of 13 patients with advanced, diffuse Hodgkin's disease, poorly responding to the most widely employed primary chemotherapy regimens, were treated with massive chemotherapy (MCH) followed by rescue with non-frozen autologous bone marrow infusion (ABMT). Complete remission (CR) was obtained in 8/13 patients (61.5%) and partial remission in two. Hematopoietic recovery occurred in 12 cases. These preliminary results would seem to indicate that MCH with non-frozen ABMT may be successfully used in patients with resistant or relapsed Hodgkin's disease.
