In brief: Primarily chemo

The main treatment for burkitt lymphoma is chemotherapy.
Sometimes radiation therapy can be used for a local mass causing a problem but radiation therapy alone is not adequate. Bone marrow transplantation can be used as well in some cases after chemotherapy.

In brief: Rituxan (rituximab)?

Rituxan, (rituximab) a treatment for RA and various lymphomas, is a new promising, and not very dangerous rx.
Trials are underway.
