Dr. Kahl on the Current Treatment Landscape in Relapsed/Refractory iNHL

Brad S. Kahl, MD, a medical oncologist at Siteman Cancer Center and a professor of medicine in the Division of Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, discusses the current treatment landscape in ​relapsed/refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL).

The management of patients with ​relapsed/refractory iNHL can be challeng​ing as many factors influence the decision-making process, says Kahl. 

Patient-specific factors such as age, comorbidities, and goals of treatment should be considered, Kahl explains. Additionally, it is important to note all prior treatments the patient had received and how well they responded to them. 

Notably, if a patient ​derived a substantial response from a frontline therapy with minimal toxicity, it may be reasonable to offer that therapy again. However, ​as there are many ​therapeutic options in this space, this does not happen often, Kahl concludes.
