Abstract

A retrospective review was conducted of patients treated for thyroid non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (TNHL) at the Royal Marsden Hospital between 1936 and 1996 to determine the effect of radiotherapy (RT) on outcome. 91 patients were identified from the Thyroid Unit Database. There were 77 females and 14 males with a median age of 65 years (range 22-87 years). RT was delivered according to two separate policies: (1) involved field radiotherapy (IFRT) to the thyroid bed and cervical lymph nodes; (2) extended field radiotherapy (EFRT) covering the thyroid bed, cervical and mediastinal lymph nodes. 89 patients received RT as part of definitive treatment following surgery, to a dose of approximately 40 Gy. 25 patients received IFRT and 64 patients EFRT. 27 patients received cytotoxic chemotherapy. 18 patients (72%) treated with IFRT died of TNHL with a median relapse free survival (RFS) of 10 months and a median overall survival (OS) of 21 months. In contrast, only 29 patients (46%) treated with EFRT died of TNHL with a median RFS of 76 months (p = 0.01 for RFS with respect to IFRT and p = 0.04 for OS). Significantly more patients treated with IFRT relapsed locally (52% vs 27%). There was no difference in the rates of systemic relapse (20% ...Continue Reading

B-cell lymphomas include lymphomas that affect B cells. This subtype of cancer accounts for over 80% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the US. Here is the latest research.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
