Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma


The latest in Lymphoma treatments and research

The ASH education book series is a yearly overview of the treatment, management and diagnosis of many haematologic diseases.

These articles are long, very in-depth and come with links to the charts and figures showing the data from the studies they are presenting. They are aimed at doctors and researchers so the language and knowledge level is somewhat technical. Nevertheless they are also an excellent resource for us patients if you don't mind wading through them. They give you a very excellent idea of what is the current thinking on various topics.

Here is a list of titles in the current issue.

The first topic is about DLBC. The title and link are below. I think all people with DLBC will find something of interest in this article. (More to come)
