Rise to the challenge of classical
Hodgkin lymphoma with ADCETRIS
When given in combination with a chemotherapy called AVD
(Adriamycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine), ADCETRIS was more
effective than chemo alone for adults as a first treatment for Stage 3 or 4
classical Hodgkin lymphoma. ADCETRIS plus AVD reduced the risk of
cancer progression, or receiving additional anticancer therapy, or
death when compared to traditional chemotherapy.
82% of patients treated with ADCETRIS plus AVD did not experience cancer progression or
death, and did not need additional anticancer therapy compared to 77% of those treated
with ABVD (Adriamycin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine).

Classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL), also called Hodgkin's lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, or Hodgkin's, is a cancer of the blood. It starts when lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, grow out of control.
People with classical Hodgkin lymphoma have abnormal white blood cells called Reed-Sternberg cells in their lymph nodes. These cells usually have a special protein on their surface called CD30, which is a key marker of Hodgkin's. In fact, CD30 is present in approximately 95% of all cases of Hodgkin lymphoma.
