1. Overview


Patients over 18 years with DLBCL and BCL-U with a proven MYC rearrangement as detected by FISH, are considered high risk patients with a very poor prognosis after standard first line therapy with R-CHOP immune-chemotherapy. For this patient group, the HOVON130 clinical trial is designed.

The HOVON130 project as supported by the KWF/Alpe d'Huzes program also includes a registration study (HOVON900) to monitor the effectiveness and to support optimal MYC-FISH screening in the Netherlands. In this registration database, all patients with DLBCL / BCL-U are registered, irrespective of MYC status and irrespective of inclusion in the HOVON130 trial.
The registration database will enable effective screening and will be the basis for future comparative epidemiological and biological studies. Informed consent is required for inclusion in the registration database and for possible future retrieval of samples. All logistics will be performed by the HOVON Pathology Facility and Biobank (HOP,
