This is great news for Hodgkin's sufferers.  A trial has been published in the Annals of Oncology that shows adult stem cell treatment is an effective way to treat Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Researchers from the Royal Marsden Hospital recently reported long-term data including 195 patients with recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma who received an autologous stem cell transplant between 1985 and 2005.  

  • 61% of patients achieved a complete disappearance of cancer.

  • Median survival was nine years.

  • Median progression-free survival was three years.

  • Five- and 10-year overall survivals were 55% and 49%, respectively.

  • 10% of patients developed a second cancer, the most of which were acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndromes.

  • Mortality caused by treatment occurred in 6% of patients.

The researchers concluded that an autologous stem cell transplant provides an effective long-term therapeutic option for patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma that has stopped responding to prior therapies. Patients with recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma may wish to speak with their physician about their individual risks and benefits of an autologous stem cell transplant.

If you or someone you know has Hodgkin's Lymphoma, you may wish to contact Dr. Shimon Slavin in Israel as he may have a stem cell treatment for you.  Dr. Slavin's email address is slavinmd@gmail.com
