there are many chemotherapy regimens for relapsed DLBCL like RICE, GEM OX, DHAP etc. Choice of regimen is decided by the treating doctor. Radioimmunotherapy is not done widely. it is expensive and it has got its own side effects. Since it has relapsed very soon, complete cure cannot be achieved now and whatever regimen if followed, the aim is to prolong survival and offer good quality of life
