The international, randomized phase 3 HD15 trial established 6xeBEACOPP as standard therapy for patients with newly diagnosed advanced-stage Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) within the German Hodgkin Study Group (GHSG). We performed a follow-up analysis to assess long-term efficacy and safety of this approach. Between 2003 and 2008, 2182 patients aged 18 to 60 years were recruited and randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio between 8 or 6 cycles of eBEACOPP or 8 cycles of the dose-dense BEACOPP-14 regimen, each followed by 30 Gy radiotherapy in case of positron emission tomography (PET)-positive residual lesions ≥2.5 cm. The study aimed at demonstrating non-inferiority regarding efficacy of the 2 experimental arms on a significance level of 2.5% each. The intention-to-treat analysis comprised 2126 patients with a median follow-up of 102 months. Ten-year progression-free survival was 81% (97.5% CI 77-85) with 8xeBEACOPP, 84% (80-87) with 6xeBEACOPP, and 84% (80-87) with 8xBEACOPP-14; the non-inferiority margin of 1.51 for the hazard ratio (HR) could be excluded for both comparisons (6xeBEACOPP, HR = 0.7, 97.5% CI 0.5-1.0; 8xBEACOPP-14, HR = 0.9, 97.5% CI 0.7-1.2). Overall survival at 10 years was 88% (85-91), 90% (88-93), and 92% (89-94), respectively. A total of 142 second malignancies corresponding to 10-year cumulative incidences of 10%, 7%, and 7% and standardized incidence ratios of 4.3, 2.5, and 2.8 were reported for 8xeBEACOPP, 6xeBEACOPP, and 8xBEACOPP-14, respectively. This updated analysis of the HD15 trial thus confirms the efficacy and reports on the long-term safety of a shortened first-line chemotherapy consisting of 6xeBEACOPP followed by PET-guided radiotherapy in advanced-stage HL.
