    Very exciting! We'll see, however, how well it works against an older set of patients with more aggressive cancer...I hope it will still work very well.

    This is good news. I pray that further research & treatments will validate these results. My father died with Lymphoma 30 years ago this Spring.

    This is potentially very good news. Let's hope it lives up to the hype!

    Yeah, it looks fairly promising. However i'd like to see what the long term results are after remission. usually the radiation treatment leads to a higher chance of forming a second primary tumor elsewhere.

    awesome link- both my grandmother and father suffered through lymphoma, thankfully- each was able to beat the cancer with chemo and localized radiation. this sounds promissing :D

    I'm very happy to hear about the survival of your grandmother and father. Chemotherapy has greatly improved over the las decade. How recently did they receive treatment? Do your remember the Chemo that they received?
