Has anyone been part of a clinical trial for NHL patients and treated w/EPOCH (as opposed to the more traditional - CHOP)? I need your feedback. Thank you.

Yes, I received EPOCH-R at the National Cancer Institute, last year. It appears to have cured my NHL. Please email me at
or call me at home in the evenings

I participated in a clinical trial of EPOCH-R at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda. I will be returning there next week for a follow up exam.
The protocol was six three week cycles, one week of chemo, and two resing weeks. It also included the drug Rituximab, an antibody made initially in mouse against the CD20 marker on B Lymphocytes.
