Prof Massimo Federico - University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy

Data presented at ASH 2014 indicates that brentuximab vedotin was "impressive" as single therapy for patients with Hodgkins lymphoma, bringing complete responses in 11 out of 12 patients investigated for their response to the drug as monotherapy before going onto receive ABVD.

Prof Massimo Federico told ecancertv that the initial success suggests that longer brentuximab courses could be used in place of chemotherapy or radiotherapy in some patients.
