Latest treatment for mantle cell lymphoma?

Posted by @bobc, May 10, 2016

My son was treated for mantle cell lymphoma ending 12/2014. So far so good. Any new treatments avail if it recurs

Welcome @bobc.
Glad to hear things are good with your son. Here’s a list of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) clinical trials open now at Mayo Clinic. These are the latest treatments under study. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/non-hodgkins-lymphoma/care-at-mayo-clinic/clinical-trials/con-20027792

I’m tagging @djzlady96 on this conversation. Her husband also has mantle cell NHL.

Here is a list of the latest FDA approved drugs for cancer. I believe Opdivo ( Nivolumab) was also approved for Mantle cell . I did the infusions for 30 months for stage 4 melanoma and have been NED ( no evidence of disease) for 6 years now. http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/InformationOnDrugs/ApprovedDrugs/ucm279174.htm
