Patient Q&A Section

What are common treatments for lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"Lymphomas have a similar treatment option based on the type; B-and T-cell lymphomas have more options in regards to surgery, radiation therapy, or targeted therapies. For mantle-cell lymphoma, chemotherapy with high-dose carboplatin and cyclophosphamide is typically the option of choice. For mantle-cell lymphoma patients who are younger than 65, autologous stem cell transplant is frequently used. B-cell lymphoma (e.g. Hodgkin's disease) may be treated with radiation therapy, and targeted therapy with abatacept or R-CHOP can be used in patients who do not respond to chemotherapy." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What causes lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"Most cases of lymphoma occur inside the lymph nodes or lymphatics. Cancer cells from these areas of the body are carried to the blood to form peripheral lymphoma. If the cancer cells spread to other parts of the body, the lymphoma becomes nodal lymphoma. The cells can become cancerous when they are able to divide freely in the blood, which they cannot do in the lymph node or lymphatics. This leads to the different types of lymphoma. The genetic changes involved in this process are the cause of mantle-cell lymphoma." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"Symptoms of mantle-cell lymphoma are often non-specific. However, the most common sign is a palpable enlarged lymph node. Signs of other lymphoma are more specific and usually" - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can lymphoma, mantle-cell be cured?

"Although MCD is very rare. In our series with 10 patients, none of the 10 were cured. Treatment options for patients with MCD are not well established, other than aggressive chemotherapy for acute illnesses. We may not have the optimal treatment for the disorder to determine its curability. However, we were able to find a case of cure in the MCD, and that patient is the only one who has undergone successful treatment for the disease. More research is needed to explore other optimal treatment options." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get lymphoma, mantle-cell a year in the United States?

"Each year, 7.8 million Americans are diagnosed with a lymphoma. This makes up 16.3% of American adults. In the United States, women are more commonly diagnosed with mantle-cell lymphoma than men. This is probably due to the fact that, in industrialized countries, mantle-cell lymphoma can be associated with low birth weights and other immunodeficiencies." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"The cells that make up lymphoma are usually found in the immune system. They may be B cells, T cells, NK cells, or monocytes. The most common type of lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a cancer that develops in the immune system. Most people develop lymphoma after a long period of time, in which time the cancer cells reproduce and spread throughout the body." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the primary cause of lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"This analysis suggests that a significant portion of people with mantle-cell lymphoma are HIV infected or have some other type of immunosuppression. Data from a recent study support the hypothesis that the primary cause of mantle cell lymphoma is HIV infection or immunosuppression associated with HIV. This article is protected by copyright.

What is the average age someone gets lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"On average, lymphoma is diagnosed at age 61. answer: On average, lymphoma is diagnosed at age 61. This finding suggests a role for early diagnosis, which may result in a cure for early lymphoma. The findings can guide patient education, encourage patients for early referral to a cancer center, and improve access to lymphoma treatment for underutilized and under-served patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Is rituximab typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"In a recent study, findings, patients in the rituximab-only group had higher DFS and OS than patients with other combinations of treatments. In a recent study, findings suggests that rituximab alone has an indication for patients with mantle cell lymphoma." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Does lymphoma, mantle-cell run in families?

"Results from a recent clinical trial, in addition to the known associations between the HLA genotypes, the CD34 and M-HC variants, and the immunoglobulin allotypes, no particular genetic risk factors for LMCL were detected." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Has rituximab proven to be more effective than a placebo?

"Rituximab as a single-agent was highly effective in relapsed or refractory MCL and was significantly more effective than a placebo, even with the previous use of B-CASP. Results from a recent clinical trial of this study provide good evidence that rituximab improves the prognosis and reduces relapses in patients with relapsed or refractory MCL. However, a large, prospective, controlled study is warranted." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Who should consider clinical trials for lymphoma, mantle-cell?

"The number of lymphoma patients and the ratio of newly developed agents to available agents make these trials relevant. This article provides practical guidelines for patients who want to join a trial or considering clinical trials." - Anonymous Online Contributor
