She discusses opportunities to improve outcomes for patients with lymphoma; assessing opportunities to analyze tumor biology through pathways and biomarkers to identify drugs and targets. Moreover, she discusses the difficulties we face with regards to the time frames of designing pharmaceutical trials, as well as logistical difficulties in introducing new drugs and agents into our treatment repertoire. Finally, she notes the importance of having data available from clinicians regarding the natural history of patients who are not receiving pharmaceutical treatment, in order for us to determine the exact benefit that they give us.
