For Healthcare Professionals: Lymphomas

Our specialists care for more than 1,200 individuals newly diagnosed with lymphoma each year, as well as many others receiving ongoing and follow-up care. A multidisciplinary team of physicians that includes medical and radiation oncologists and surgeons focuses its expertise on each case, personalizing care.

Most patients with Hodgkin lymphoma have very good outcomes at our institution, and recent second-line treatment strategies have improved prospects for positive tumor response, reduced toxicity, and increased stem cell harvest for transplantation in patients with relapse. Recent data (2010) indicate a five-year cure rate of nearly 70 percent for patients following autologous transplant for relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma, compared to national averages of 45 to 50 percent as reported by the Bone Marrow Transplant Registry.
