Description: Download from iTunes: When diffuse large b-cell lymphoma returns after the cancer patient is initially treated, it is called relapsed diffuse large b-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). If this happens, other therapies besides the standard R-CHOP (chemotherapy drugs cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) may be successful in fighting the disease. Jason Westin, M.D., assistant professor in Lymphoma/Myeloma at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses these therapies, including high dose chemotherapy combined with stem cell transplantation, as well as clinical trials for relapsed diffuse large b-cell lymphoma.
