Stem Cell Transplants & Lymphoma Treatment Clinical Trials
With the experience and expertise of an entire team of University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center lymphoma specialists, we are able to determine optimal treatment for your lymphoma diagnosis. Including access to lymphoma-specific clinical trials, we offer treatment solutions such as stem cell transplants that are not always available elsewhere.
Often a stem cell transplant procedure is used as a treatment choice when lymphoma still remains after chemotherapy or returns after treatment. Stem cell transplant, also known as bone marrow transplant, allows our team to bring healthy new cells to your bone marrow to enhance the production of new cells. This type of treatment means our team can give higher doses of chemotherapy to fight the diseased cells because new cells will be transplanted to replace them.
We have an entire team to help you through the transplant process and we’ll make sure you understand every step of the way. Most importantly, as a comprehensive cancer center, we have the experience with the most complex forms of lymphoma and the management of every step of care from diagnosis through treatment and on to recovery.
Understanding the Best Treatment Options for your Lymphoma Diagnosis
The treatment of lymphoma depends on the type of lymphoma, stage of lymphoma, age and medical history of a patient. Chemotherapy is often suggested for Hodgkin lymphoma treatment. However, if the cancer does not respond to chemotherapy or returns after an initial response to therapy, a stem cell transplant may be recommended.
The type of cancer cell and its rate of growth will determine non-Hodgkin lymphoma treatment options. In most cases, treatment will involve chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma could be accompanied by radiation therapy and/or immunotherapy. A stem cell transplant may be the most viable option.
