Abstract Text We present response and survival outcomes of a pivotal phase 2 trial of the antibody-drug conjugate brentuximab vedotin in patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma following autologous stem cell transplant (N = 102) after a median observation period of approximately 3 years. Median overall survival and progression-free survival were estimated at 40.5 months and 9.3 months, respectively. Improved outcomes were observed in patients who achieved a complete remission (CR) on brentuximab vedotin, with estimated 3-year overall survival and progression-free survival rates of 73% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 57%, 88%) and 58% (95% CI: 41%, 76%), respectively, in this group (medians not reached). Of the 34 patients who obtained CR, 16 (47%) remain progression-free after a median of 53.3 months (range, 29.0 to 56.2 months) of observation; 12 patients remain progression-free without a consolidative allogeneic stem cell transplant. Younger age, good performance status, and lower disease burden at baseline were characteristic of patients who achieved a CR and were favorable prognostic factors for overall survival. These results suggest that a significant proportion of patients who respond to brentuximab vedotin can achieve prolonged disease control. The trial was registered at as #NCT00848926.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
