Lymphoma is the most common type of blood cancer, affecting about one in every 50 Americans. Due to advancements and discoveries in lymphoma research since the 1990, survival and recovery rates have increased. Choice of treatment depends on factors such as the type, stage, and grade of the disease, as well as the patient’s overall health and age. The two main sub-groups of lymphomas are Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which are characterized by unique differences of the cancer. Below is a list of drug options approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients with lymphoma.

*Note: The following list is not necessarily exhaustive or complete. Lymphoma News Today is not suggesting or recommending any of the therapies for treatment of Lymphoma; the list is merely an index of approved lymphoma drugs and provided as an online resource. Always consult a physician when making treatment choices for lymphoma.
