Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
All participants receive the initial therapy that consists in 2 courses of Doxorubicin (25 mg/m2 intravenous (iv) days 1,15), Bleomycin (10,000 units/m2 iv days 1,15), Vinblastine (6 mg/m2 iv days 1,15), Dacarbazine (375 mg/m2 iv days 1,15) (ABVD). After this two cycles (cycle repeats every 28 days) a early PET will be performed. If PET is positive the participants will be randomized to 4 (cycles repeat every 21 days) escalated Bleomycin (10 mg/m2/endovenous (ev)/day, day 8), Etoposide (200 mg/m2/ev/day, days 1-3), Doxorubicin (35 mg/m2/ev/day, day 1), Cyclophosphamide (1250 mg/m2/ev/day, day 1), Vincristine (1,4 mg/m2/ev/day, day 8), Procarbazine (100 mg/m2/b.m./day, days 1-7), Prednisone (40 mg/m2/b.m./day, days 1-14),(BEACOPPesc) or escalated Bleomycin (10 mg/m2/ev/day, day 8), Etoposide (200 mg/m2/ev/day, days 1-3), Doxorubicin (35 mg/m2/ev/day, day 1), Cyclophosphamide (1250 mg/m2/ev/day, day 1), Vincristine (1,4 mg/m2/ev/day, day 8), Procarbazine (100 mg/m2/b.m./day, days 1-7), Prednisone (40 mg/m2/b.m./die 1°-14°), Rituximab (375 mg/m2/ev/day, day 1) (R-BEACOPPesc). After participants will be received another PET.

Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
central randomisation by computer
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Stratified allocation. Factors such as centre, age gender or previous treatment are used for the stratification.
Simple randomisation by using a randomisation table created by a computer software (i.e., computerised sequence generation)

Summary
Brief summary
In the present study, after two courses of standard Doxorubicin Bleomycin Vinblastine Dacarbazine (ABVD) treatment patients will be evaluated for chemosensitivity by Positron Emission Tomography (PET): patients with a positive scan will be addressed to a more aggressive therapy with either escalated Bleomycin Etoposide Doxorubicin Cyclophosphamide Vincristine Procarbazine Prednisone (BEACOPP) or escalated Rituximab-Bleomycin Etoposide Doxorubicin Cyclophosphamide Vincristine Procarbazine Prednisone (R-BEACOPP); patients with a negative scan will continue the standard therapy.
