Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 04, 2017

Lymphoma is one of the most common types of cancer, with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma making up about 4% of all cancer cases in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Although treatment methods like chemotherapy and radiation therapy are able to treat the cancer, researchers still actively study this cancer to gain a better understanding of it to develop new targeted treatment methods. 

Researchers from the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital have been studying new therapies for the cancer using T-cells, research that they will continue with the assistance of a new $11.5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute.
