New cancer treatment for severe lymphoma

Non-hodgkins lymphoma is the seventh most common cancer in the U.S., but a new discovery may change the way doctors treat the most difficult cases.

While some forms of the disease respond well to treatment, others are stubborn and aggressive.

The doctor says the next step is to put MI-2 into pill form, and test it on people who have aggressive forms of non-hodgkins lymphoma.

If treatment is successful in those trials, the drug therapy could possibly help treat other forms of lymphoma, as well as a variety of inflammatory and autoimmune disorders.
