Dr Sharman on Lenalidomide and Rituximab in Lymphoma

This latest blog by Dr Sharman only touches briefly on CLL, but for those with a technical interest in non chemo treatments and CD20 antibodies like Rituximab, plus an interesting discussion into how CLL B-Lymphcytes inhibit T-Lymphocytes (and leave us more susceptible to secondary cancers), it is well worth a read:

I'd heard that Lenalidomide has the unusual effect of boosting the immune system (most treatments have the opposite effect - hence Watch and Wait being the default 'treatment' for CLL). This blog explains why!

Dr Sharman's educated posts on his blog are ALWAYS worth reading.

PLUS he carefully links what he says to other important blog posts.

So read, and click on the links ( different coloured sentences or words ).

Lots of interesting topics in his links as well as the main subject.
