A member asked:

I was wondering what are the odds of stems cells curing non-hodgkins lymphoma?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Good odds: Stem cells are used following high dose chemotherapy. The cure is effectively achieved with high dose chemotherapy, the stem cells are used to repopulate the bone marrow so that normal blood formation can be revived. This process is commonly used for treatment of non hodgkins lymphomas as a rescue therapy and can salvage/cure about 50% of cases who have filed to get well with initial chemotherapy.
