More on My Remission from MCL from My Journal

See this special amplify’d clip regarding mantle cell lymphoma | We received confirmation today from City of Hope that we are scheduled for a 5-6 hour infusion called IVIG (immunoglobulin).  See the links with the post for an explanation.  This infusion date will be followed two days later with an infusion of Rituxan which is also an immune system booster.  All of this additional therapy is intended to help keep me in remission which we have enjoyed since the October completion of the TomoTherapy that immediately followed the second recurrence of the lymphoma.

Classifying non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) can be confusing because there are so many types. The World Health Organization system is often used. It groups NHL by the appearance of the lymphoma cells, the chromosome features of the cells, and the presence of certain proteins on the cell surface.

Web Exclusive: Types of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Mantle Cell Lymphoma
Only about 5 percent of lymphomas are of this type. Men are affected most often. The average age of patients is in the early 60s. Although this isn't a very fast growing lymphoma, it is hard to treat. Newer, more aggressive treatments may be more effective than those used in the past, which may help improve the survival rates of patients now being diagnosed.
