Chemotherapy is commonly used in cancer therapy and is the mainstay of lymphoma treatment. Most chemotherapy agents are given intravenously while there are a few chemo drugs that can be taken orally. It is of utmost importance to identify the optimum chemotherapy regimen for lymphoma patients, particularly for the first treatment
Targeted drugs are efficacious cancer therapies with relatively fewer side effects than chemotherapeutic agents. There is a growing number of targeted lymphoma agents that may be used in combination with chemotherapy for aggressive lymphomas and as single agents for indolent lymphomas
Cancer cells commonly trick our immune system to grow without any boundaries. Immunotherapy drugs are changing the way cancer is treated. Some types of lymphoma do respond to these agents, i.e. Hodgkin lymphoma
Stem Cell Transplantation
Stem cell transplantation is a commonly utilized method to treat lymphomas and leukemias. Autologous (from one’s self) stem cell transplantations are generally used for relapsed lymophomas. Haploidentical transplants may be particularly useful for Hodgkin lymphoma
Not enough words to explain Dr. Darda Bayraktar. In addition to his education and knowledge, his approach to his patients and positive attitude have supported me through out my lymphoma treatment
Dr. Darda Bayraktar is the doctor I saw at my last appointment. He is from Turkey and is probably the best doctor I have eer been to. He had only been here for two days but knew my whole five-year background and everything about me. He knew all the treatments I have had and am having. He knows of all the new research and medicines that are out there for my cancer. He sat and visited with me like he had known me my whole life.
