After relapsing with nhl (diffuse large b-cell) is it better to do auto stem cell transplant or the collection only and then rituxan (rituximab) maintenance?

In brief: Depends
After a relapse, diffuse large b-cell lymphoma is only rarely cured using "conventional" chemotherapy.
High-dose chemotherapy with autologous peripheral blood stem cell rescue is the best chance for long term survival and cure of this disease.
