Is matulane (procarbazine) useful to non-hodgkin's lymphomas?

6 doctors agree

In brief: No

Only indication is for hodkin's disease, and even in that condition, where it is used as part of the "mopp" regimen, it has been replaced by other regimens.
It may have slight activity in other lymphomas but there are now many other effective chemotherapeutic and biologic choices.
