  • 2017
  • September 14, 2017 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted accelerated approval to copanlisib (Aliqopa) for the treatment of adults with relapsed follicular lymphoma who have received at least two prior treatments known as systemic therapies. (lymphoma.org)
  • mantle cell lym
  • Since January of 2005, the Lymphoma Research Foundation has been proud to convene the Mantle Cell Lymphoma Consortium (MCLC), which is comprised of more than 100 laboratory and clinical scientists from North America and Europe who focus their research on MCL. (lymphoma.org)
  • LRF's Mantle Cell Lymphoma Consortium is one of the Foundation's longest running scientific program, encouraging collaboration and the sharing of research developments between the world's leading MCL researchers, including LRF MCL Consortium members, MCL grantees, and scientists from the United States, Canada, and Europe.

  • develops
  • Watchful waiting (also called active surveillance) may be offered for follicular lymphoma because it develops slowly and may not need to be treated right away. (cancer.ca)
  • Follicular lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkins lymphoma that develops from a B cell lymphocyte (a specific type of white blood cell) which starts to grow and divide in abnormal or uncontrolled way. (drugs.com)
  • lymph node
  • Follicular describes how the lymphoma cells group together in clusters in a lymph node or other tissues. (cancer.ca)
  • External beam radiation therapy is used to treat lymph node areas affected by stage 1 or stage 2 follicular lymphoma. (cancer.ca)
  • Follicular lymphoma is usually more advanced (stage 3 or 4) and has usually spread to more than one lymph node area in the body when it is diagnosed. (cancer.ca)
  • The system accounts for a stepwise progression to adjacent lymph node chains, a pattern often not found in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and thus its validity in this population has been questioned ( Staudt and Dave, 2005 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • The normal architecture of the lymph node is replaced by follicular or nodular collections of small cleaved cells (grade 1), a mixture of small cleaved and large lymphoid cells (grade 2) or predominately large lymphoid cells (grade 3). (renalandurologynews.com)
  • subtype
  • Follicular lymphoma is the most common indolent subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and often becomes more difficult to treat with each relapse. (lymphoma.org)
  • The initial evaluation of a patient with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) must establish the precise histologic subtype, the extent and sites of disease, and the performance status of the patient. (uptodate.com)
  • involvement
  • Although liver function tests (LFTs) are usually normal, an abnormal result might indicate occult liver involvement, and since ureteral obstruction can occur in lymphoma, the measurement of the serum creatinine is important. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • gene
  • The modified version of the T-cell expresses a new gene that targets and kills the lymphoma cells and is infused back into the patient. (drugbank.ca)
