who underwent HDCT for refractory (62 patients) or relapsed (35 patients) diseases in Istituto Europeo di Oncologia, from 1995 to 2009. Treatment included high-dose busulphan,etoposide, cytarabine and melphalan in 84 patients and high-dose idarubicin and melphalanin 13 patients with subsequent peripheral hemopoietic stem cells transplant. Outcomes wereevaluated in terms of progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). In order toidentify prognostic factors for outcome, a multivariate analysis for age, sex, disease status(refractory/relapsed), disease stage, B symptoms, presence of extranodal involvement, bulkydisease, elevated lactate dehydrogenase, number of previous chemotherapy lines, remissionstatus before transplant, 18F-fluoro-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography(18FDG-PET) status before and after transplant was done. A clinical response was achievedin 91% of patients, with complete remissions in 76/97 patients. With a median follow-up of45 months (range 1–164 months), 5-year PFS and OS were 64% and 71%, respectively.

In More recently, 18FDG-PET has been used in HL, either refractory or relapsed disease, standard-dose regimens for staging or for assessing response [14]. Early interim had demonstrated poor efficacy, whereas high-dose 18FDG-PET is also an independent prognostic factor in chemotherapy (HDCT) followed by autologous stem cell newly diagnosed HL patients [15], but its impact in the support improved both progression-free survival (PFS) transplant setting, both before [16] and after transplant and overall survival (OS) [1–3].

One case of acute leukaemia was observed in a patient, who had been heavily pretreated and who received two Figure 3. Progression-free survival in patients who underwent autologous transplants and RT for relapsed HL. Severe PET before transplant cardiac events are related to cumulative therapy burden,mainly because of the use of cardiotoxic drugs andRT [36]. We report one case of severe cardiac failure after standard chemotherapy, HDCT and RT. It is well known that anthracyclines, as well as high-dose cyclophospha- mide, can induce heart failure, also independently of Negative PET (n=60) the total dose. This damage can be synergic with that caused by mediastinal RT. Anyway, the incidence in HL survivors seems to be in decline, probably thanks to the less-dose intensive RT [37], delivered mainly on the involved sites.
We confirm that HDCT is able to induce a high Positive PET (n=18) remission rate and a prolonged PFS in more than 50% of Log-rank test p-value: <0.01 patients with either refractory or relapsed HL. Refractory HR* pos vs neg: 7.6 (95% CI 3.3-17.0) * Adjusted by age and sex Years from transplant

Progression-free survival in patients who underwent is superimposable to that of patients with relapsed disease PET after transplant responsive to induction therapy (data not shown).
