Can lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse be cured?

Cured lymphoma often occurs in both patients undergoing HD and patients receiving RFA. However, not everyone with curable lymphoma survives longer than a typical 5-year life span.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What is lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

LLD is the most common type of large B-cell lymphoma and is almost invariably fatal. LLD is a progressive disease that usually presents with enlarged lymph nodes and/or extensible (i.e., ulcerated) lesions, although it is also associated with signs and symptoms of a more aggressive disease.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the signs of lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

A person with large cell lymphoma has a multitude of symptoms. Typically, small-cell lymphoma leads to systemic symptoms while large-cell lymphoma is the predominant cause of symptoms in a small subset.\n\n- List of medical signs\n- Medical sign"

"Pachycladaceae\n\nThe Pachycladaceae are a family of ferns in the Dryopteridales described as a family in 1825. The family is accepted in the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group classification of 2016 (PPG I) but not by some other classifications.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What causes lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

Lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse arises as a monomorphic lesion through the successive steps of centripetal tissue replacement. Large B-cell diffuse arises as an aggressive tumor with infiltrative growth, indicating the necessity of surgery for early stages.

Anonymous Patient Answer

How many people get lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse a year in the United States?

Patients are being diagnosed with DLBD at a younger age than the general population. As DLBD continues to be considered a form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia rather than a non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the number of patients receiving treatment in the United States would likely reach more than 60% of the population as a whole unless the disease has a much slower cumulative risk.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are common treatments for lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

Treatment of lymphoma is challenging and highly reliant on the complexity of the disease and patient characteristics. Novel chemotherapy regimes such as Rituximab plus CHOP are being phased in for newly diagnosed aggressive B-cell LLD patients and are effective but very difficult to implement in resource-constrained settings for advanced/refractory forms of lymphoma.

Anonymous Patient Answer

How does lenalidomide work?

Lenalidomide exerts its direct antitumor action by increasing apoptosis, via upregulation the Bax/Bcl-2/Bcl-xl ratios, and decreasing the nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) pro-apoptotic activity with little effect on apoptosis in other myeloma cells and in normal immune cells.

Anonymous Patient Answer

How serious can lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse be?

The data collected by the authors of this paper indicate that the prognosis for diffuse large B cell lymphoma is dependent not only on the histology of the malignant neoplasm but also on the extent of disease at the time of diagnosis. The authors feel that it may be prudent to recommend the addition of cytochemotherapy to conservative therapy in the early stages of large cell diffuse non-Hodgkin lymphoma, since it tends to produce a higher, more homogenous rate of remission than conservative therapy alone.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving lenalidomide?

This trial shows feasibility of using lenalidomide as a second-line option for patients with relapsed/refractory CLL who have not responded adequately to rituximab. A larger phase III trial using these subjects is warranted.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What is the average age someone gets lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

Age at diagnosis of lymphoma was 55 years/male and 51 years/female for large B-cell lymphoma, diffuse. Age at diagnosis of lymphoma was 64 years/male and 52 years/female for T-cell lymphomas.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What is the primary cause of lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

The study did not find any evidence of an association between HLA-C-mismatch and the development of DLBCL, regardless of the type of chemotherapy used in a patient's regimen. Overall, the incidence of DLBCL in patients who had HLA-C-mismatch was not significantly different from patients without HLA-C-mismatch.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Does lenalidomide improve quality of life for those with lymphoma, large b-cell, diffuse?

Lenalidomide provided a significant (p<0.05) increase in quality of life compared to observation alone and is currently the only agent to show a substantial improvement in quality of life after one cycle of treatment.
