In a recent publication from the British Journal of Haematology researchers sought to better understand how patients over the age of 80 should be treated when they are diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. Dr. John Leonard discusses the implications of several of this study’s findings. Researchers found that while elderly follicular lymphoma patients were treated less aggressively, the majority of patients lived through the course of the study, with only a minority of those who died, dying from follicular lymphoma.
