Abstract The behavior of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is different in developing countries, perhaps due to differences in epidemiology and population access to health care. We performed a retrospective study comparing the efficacy of mechlorethamine, vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone, doxorubicin, bleomycin, and vinblastine (MOPPABV) versus adriamycin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine (ABVD) chemotherapy protocols as first-line therapy for HL in a Brazilian population. A hundred and eighty-six HL patients were retrospectively analyzed regarding their first-line treatment with MOPPABV and ABVD at two public hospitals in SA o pound Paulo, Brazil. Eligible patients were either previously untreated or at first relapse after being treated with only radiotherapy with confirmed HL diagnosis. At a median follow-up of 9 years, complete remission is 89.5 and 85.9 (P = 0.3), overall survival 93.8% and 89.6% (P = 0.68), disease-free survival 85.6% and 81.6% (P = 0.41), and relapse ratios 20.9% and 26.4% (P = 0.17) for ABVD and MOPPABV, respectively. Extended-field radiation therapy postchemotherapy was mostly used in the MOPPABV group. There were three cases of secondary neoplasm (colon adenocarcinoma, myeloid chronic leukemia, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma), all associated with MOPPABV. ABVD and MOPPABV protocols as first-line treatment for HL resulted in similar therapeutic outcomes and did not influence overall survival, disease-free survival, and relapse ratio. MOPPABV was related to a higher risk of secondary malignancy and, therefore, ABVD should be considered a better option for HL therapy. These findings corroborate recent data in literature.
