Lymphoma is the most common type of blood cancer, affecting about one in every 50 Americans. Due to advancements and discoveries in the field of lymphoma research, survival and recovery rates have increased since the 1990s. The 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 the unique specificities of the cancer material. Below is a list of drug options approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients with lymphoma.
