Medication for Lymphoma
My uncle aged 60 was diagnosed with Lymphoma --> Non Hodgkins --> B-Cells.
He was to be provided with R-CHOP chemotherapy, but before starting this therapy,
a MUGA test for heart was conducted where his LVEF was found to be 37%.
Based on this, instead of Adriomycin, it is planned to administer Liposomal Adriamycin (Trade name - LIPODOX).
I saw in the following URL : http://www.biolik.com.ua/files/en/desc/lipodox.htm
a contraindication as follows:
leukopenia, trombocytopenia, an anemia, miocarditis, an acute heart attack of a myocardium (the expressed infringements of an intimate rhythm), an acute hepatites, a tuberculosis, a ulcer of a stomach, bilirubinemia, pregnancy, heavy infringements of function of a liver and kidneys..

So, based on his heart condition would it be safe to administer LIPODOX? Expert comments solicited.
