Hodgkins and non-: The lymphomas are a relatively uncommon group of tumors that are the seventh most common malignancy in the United States. They are divided into Hodgkins and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is however each of these are subdivided into distinct subtypes.The non-Hodgkin lymphomas are further divided into B cell T cell and NK cell diseases.

Hodgkin only: Bleomycin is an older chemotherapy drug that is not used in the treatment of most subtypes of lymphoma. The only modern regimens that still use this agent are ABVD and BEACOPP for Hodgkin lymphoma.

Not very: For most lymphomas fludarabine is not the treatment of choice. The appropriate therapy depends substantially on the subtype of lymphoma. Fludarabine has been used in many indolent lymphomas and does have efficacy but newer agents have the same benefits with less toxicity. The only lymphoma in which fludarabine is routinely used at this point is CLL as part of the combination FCR or FR.

Dr. Hochberg took really careful care of my mom. He spent a lot of time with us answering our questions and was able to get us the right chemo at the right time. Mom is doing great.
