In brief: Great question

Recent publication in the new england journal of medicine in february 2012 showing depending on risk, either 2 cycles of abvd followed by radiation or 4 cycles of abvd.
Now, again depends on risk stratification. If there is not a complete response after 4 cycles of abvd, then radiation or additional chemotherapy is needed. Hope this helps.
