ESHAP experience for T-cell lymphoma - PTCL-NOS type

After a regimen of CHOP x 5, my Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma still showed up in both CT & PET Scans, plus bone marrow had at least a 20% lymphoma involvement. Switched to ESHAP and completely clear of lymphoma in all tests after 2 cycles. Getting final ESHAP in preparation for an autologous SCT next month. Having been  on Cytoxan for two years orally for a previous auto-immune disease, it's possible that I was resistant to the Cytoxan in the CHOP.
