When neurobiologist Elizabeth M. Adler was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma almost twenty years ago, she learned everything she could about the disease, both to cope with the emotional stress of her diagnosis and to make the best possible decisions for her treatment. In Living with Lymphoma, she combines her scientific expertise and personal knowledge with a desire to help other people who have lymphoma manage this complex and often baffling disease.

With the availability of more effective treatment regimens, many people with lymphoma are living longer; in fact, there are more than 700,000 lymphoma survivors in the United States alone. Given this change in the lymphoma landscape, the second edition of this book places a greater emphasis on survivorship.

The new edition includes the latest information on lymphoma diagnosis, treatment, and incidence and describes the most recent update to the WHO system of lymphoma classification and staging. Adler discusses new targeted therapies like ibrutinib and idelalisib and describes how other treatments, including radiation therapy and stem cell transplants, have been modified while others have been discontinued. She also addresses new developments, such as the possible role of lack of sunlight and vitamin D in the pathogenesis of lymphoma, and the use of medical marijuana. The book includes suggestions for further reading, including the latest material available online.

About the Author:

Following her diagnoses with lymphoma and breast cancer, Elizabeth M. Adler, PhD, shifted her focus from science research to science communication. The first edition of Living with Lymphoma won the American Medical Writers Association Medical Book Award.

Review:

"The most complete explanation of what goes on... I highly recommend it for patients, loved ones, and anyone who would like to understand what is lymphoma."

(Lymphoma Information Network)

"The most comprehensive book I have seen on the subject, short of a medical text."

(Oncolink)
