Dr. Rosen recalls the treatment options for patients diagnosed with B-cell lymphoma.

Dr. Rosen:
The treatment of B-cell lymphoma varies. In some instances, we’ll just observe the patient that there’s no evidence that an early intervention is indicated. In some instances, the patient may require chemotherapy, either very aggressive chemotherapy or chemotherapy that’s less toxic, and the most significant advances in the last decade have been in the area of biologic therapies, and these include agents such as antibodies, antibodies that actually target the lymphoma and kill the cells.
