Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas: current classification and management.

Author information

Adult Oncology Department, Dana-Farber/Partners Cancer Care, Boston, MA, USA.


Considerable progress has been made in the classification of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas during the past 15 years, and the use of specific monoclonal antibodies directed against cell surface antigens has contributed to the understanding of the immunology of the disease. Early-stage indolent lymphoma is treated with radiotherapy; treatment of advanced-stage indolent lymphoma varies. Aggressive lymphomas are treated with combination chemotherapy with or without regional radiotherapy, and highly aggressive lymphomas are treated with regimens similar to those for children with leukemia.
