      Patients with limited disease (group A) were excluded. 10 All patients were first treated with a debulking prephase of cyclophosphamide at mg/m² on day 1, vincristine at 1 mg/m² (maximum, 2 mg) on day 1, and prednisolone at 60 mg/m² on days 1 to 7 (COP) and then randomly assigned to receive 1 intravenous injection of rituximab on day 1. Denis Parsons Burkitt, MD, FRCSE, FRS (28 February – 23 March ) was a surgeon who made significant advances in health, such as the etiology of a pediatric cancer, now called Burkitt's lymphoma, and the finding that the rates of colorectal cancer is higher in those who eat limited dietary fiber.

    Treatment of Burkitt's lymphoma in the relapsed or refractory setting is typically associated with poor outcomes, and few patients survive. 31 One retrospective review reported an OS rate of 37% at 3 years for patients with a chemosensitive relapse but only 7% for those with chemoresistant disease following autologous stem-cell transplantation.   Because when we place people stricken with these diseases on plant-based diets, in some cases their disease can be reversed (Our #1 Killer Can Be Stopped). In fact it was the work of Burkitt and others in Africa that led to the disease reversal work of pioneers like Nathan Pritikin (Engineering a Cure).

It is considered as one of the fastest growing Lymphoma and cause death if not treated at primary stage.

Originally thought to represent 2 different lymphoproliferative disorders, BL was historically classified as a small noncleaved cell lymphoma 2,3 in patients with a solid tumor or nodal mass and as L3 acute. Burkitt lymphoma (BL) (or small noncleaved cell lymphoma) is one of the highly aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) that is characterized by the translocation and deregulation of the c-myc gene on chromosome 8.
