Clinical takeaways: 

  • Nivolumab with AVD significantly improved progression-free survival compared with brentuximab vedotin with AVD in patients with advanced-stage Hodgkin lymphoma (age  12 years)

  • Nivolumab with AVD shows a favourable toxicity profile with lower frequency of neuropathy compared with brentuximab vedotin with AVD

  • Nivolumab with AVD could become the new standard of care and is a key step toward harmonising the paediatric and adult treatment of advanced-stage classic Hodgkin lymphoma
