Childhood Cancer Survivors Now Living Healthier Lives

Posted 2 Jun 2017 by

FRIDAY, June 2, 2017 – For people who battled cancer in childhood, the prospects for a long life without cancer recurrence or chronic illness are better than ever, a new study finds.

Immune Therapy Makes Headway Against a Lymphoma

Posted 8 Sep 2016 by

THURSDAY, Sept. 8, 2016 – Genetically engineered immune cells appear capable of eradicating non-Hodgkin lymphoma when coupled with effective chemotherapy, a new early trial finds.
