Fortunately, recent developments in research activity have unveiled new findings on the biology of lymphomas, and the complex relationship between the lymphoma cell and the cells that surround it. These biologic insights point to distinct mechanisms that will aid in better stratifying patients for individualized therapies, and provide increased options for patients with advanced disease, where treatments remain limited.
