The Moss Reports on lymphoma (cancers of the lymphatic system) brings you a thorough and up-to-date discussion of the best results with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, integrative, complementary and alternative treatments for different types of lymphoma.

We have separate Moss Reports on the following statistically important forms of lymphoma:

  • HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (HL)
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): DIFFUSE LARGE B CELL (DLBCL)
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): FOLLICULAR (FL)
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): MANTLE CELL (MCL)
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): MYCOSIS_FUNGOIDES (CTCL)
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): BURKITT'S LYMPHOMA (BL)
(Make sure to order the one specific to the type of lymphoma you are dealing with.)

The Moss Reports on Lymphoma has been thoroughly revised for 2017.

New this year is a discussion of how science is harnessing the immune system to fight these cancers through adoptive immunotherapy or CAR-T cell therapy; of the best forms of chemoimmunotherapy. We also discuss new drugs for different types of lymphoma:
  • HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (HL): An FDA-approved targeted drug brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris«) - a monoclonal antibody that is linked to a chemotherapy drug.
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): FOLLICULAR (FL): A new drug obinutuzumab (Gazyva«) for previously untreated individuals.
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): MANTLE CELL (MCL) and DIFFUSE LARGE B CELL (DLBCL): Ibrutinib (Imbruvica«) is a relatively new drug of the type known as an oral Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), which has promising results in MCL and DLBCL
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): BURKITT'S LYMPHOMA (BL): Report contains an expanded discussion of the CODOX-M/IVAC protocol plus rituximab
  • NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA (NHL): MYCOSIS_FUNGOIDES (CTCL): Report discusses a new drug, alemtuzumab (Lemtrada«), a monoclonal antibody directed against specific markers on the surface of CTCL cells, which has demonstrated a 55 percent overall response rate in CTCL

Lymphoma is cancer that originates in and mainly affects the lymphatic system. When fluid enters and moves in these vessels it is named lymph. The lymphatic system is one of the 13 basic systems of the body: it is little appreciated when it is functioning well, in fact we are hardly conscious of its existence. When someone cuts her finger she never yells, "Quick, get me a bandage! I'm losing lymph!" You generally only become aware of its existence when you get "swollen glands" from an infection or when, much more rarely, when you develop a cancer that affects the lymphocytes (the characteristic blood cells that inhabit this system). Lymph is the fluid that circulates in the lymphatic system, whose fundamental purpose is to transport fluid to the parallel blood system, to eliminate wastes, and to fight infections.

Within this network of lymphatic vessels there are "filters," called lymph nodes. Each of us has about 800 of these bean-shaped nodes or "glands." These are strategically positioned in the middle of the chest, as well as neck, armpits, groin, pelvis and gut. Anatomically, the lymphatic system is complex. In addition to the vessels and nodes, there are other depots of lymphatic tissue throughout the body. These include the spleen, which is like one giant lymph node. In addition, patches of lymphoid tissue are located in the skin, throughout the mucosal lining of the respiratory tract (nose, mouth, throat, airways and lungs) and in the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, small and large bowel, rectum and anus). These GI tract lymphatic areas have a special name: Peyer's patches (named for a Swiss anatomist of the Renaissance era). And of course the bone marrow is rich in lymphoid tissue, since it is here that the immune cells (lymphocytes) are actually produced.

In order to make sense of the various classification systems, and therefore of the daunting array of diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities, it is important first of all to have a basic understanding of the origins of the disease. To do that we need a very brief discussion the fundamental organization of the lymphatic system. (I shall keep in mind, as always, that I am writing for a non-technical audience.)

Lymphocytes are the white blood cells (WBCs) that form the basis of the immune system. There are three major kinds of lymphocytes: B cells, T cells and NK cells. These cells originate in the bone marrow, but while B cells grow to maturity in the bone marrow, T cells normally migrate from the marrow while they are still immature and only mature after they reach the thymus gland (a little known organ that in humans resides behind the breast bone). In adults, 85 to 90 percent of all lymphomas are of the B-cell variety, while only 15 percent are derived from thymus-conditioned T-cells.

You and your doctor will need to know whether your NHL originates in a B-cell, T-cell or NK-cell. Each of these is a subtype of a kind of white blood cell called a lymphocyte. And each of these, says the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), "can behave differently and may require different treatments."

To recap, you can have a Hodgkin's or a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, an indolent or an aggressive type, and a B-cell, T-cell or NK-cell lymphoma! But you are hardly done at that point-in fact you are only just beginning to define your condition, for there are 35 or so subtypes of NHL which can also affect treatment decisions. Yes, 35! Each of these is identified through various stains, cell surface markers, genetic abnormalities, etc.

We have written Moss Reports that go into depth on the Hodgkin's lymphoma and five of the most common forms of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Our goal is to take an extremely complicated topic and make it comprehensible to the patient and his or her family.
