Novel ways to monitor the immune system in lymphoma clinical trials

By Justin McClanahan, @JustinMcClanahan

Mayo Clinic hematologist, J.C. Villasboas, M.D., discusses a new way to measure and monitor a lymphoma patient's immune system during treatment. What used to take five or more blood draws, can now be done in one using what is called mass cytometry.

The benefit for the patient is less blood draws for the same, and sometimes more, information. For researchers, data can now be collected and different immune cells can be mapped in larger numbers and more accurately.

Learn more about the process and how it may benefit patients and researchers in the following video,
