Here is a presentation on T-Cell Lymphomas that occurred at the North American Educational Forum on Lymphoma in California in November, 2012. The presenter is Dr. Andrei Shustov of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. The audience was a patient group, so some of the information is quite basic. However, there is considerable detail regarding the rarity of T-Cell Lymphomas, the difficulty in diagnosing them, as well as treatment philosophy and recent developments, to include clinical trials. He is very optimistic about the future, predicting that CHOP as a T-Cell treatment, will be phased out in about 5 years.
By way of full disclosure, Dr. Shustov is the doctor that has saved my life twice now.
