Dr. Ephraim Hochberg answered

Specializes in Medical Oncology

For most lymphomas fludarabine is not the treatment of choice. The appropriate therapy depends substantially on the subtype of lymphoma. Fludarabine has been used in many indolent lymphomas and does have efficacy but newer agents have the same benefits with less toxicity. The only lymphoma in which fludarabine is routinely used at this point is CLL as part of the combination FCR or FR.
