Abstract

There were retrospectively assessed long-term outcomes of 125 patients with primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the stomach (indolent--50, aggressive--75) using different programs of combined and complex treatment. The immediate results of the treatment in the group of indolent lymphomas were: complete remission 39 (78%), partial remission 7 (14%), the stabilization 3 (6%), progression 1 (2%) while in the group of aggressive lymphomas: complete remission 56 (74.7%), partial remission 8 (10.7%), without effect 3 (4%) and progression 8 (10.7%). It was revealed that primary indolent lymphomas of the stomach the efficiency of complex treatment is comparable to the efficiency of local methods of treatment (surgery, radiotherapy or its combination). The combination of chemotherapy and local methods of treatment gave better results compared with chemotherapy (a 5-year overall survival is 100% and 72% respectively). In the group of aggressive lymphomas the best rates in all types of survival were demonstrated by the subgroup of complex treatment as compared with the subgroup of local methods of treatment especially in terms of overall survival (100% and 65% respectively), and as compared with the subgroup where only chemotherapy was conducted, particularly in terms of disease-free survival (100% and 40% respectively). As an adjuvant therapy after surgical treatment it was preferable to use chemotherapy because such treatment program demonstrated the best rates of overall survival, which reached 92% on a 5-year and a 10-year milestone.
