Mantle cell lymphoma-management in evolution
The management of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) has been an area of rapid change in recent years. These changes have improved the prognosis for a disease that has had historically poor outcomes. There are several treatment options for the patient with newly diagnosed MCL, with younger, fit patients often receiving intensive treatment, while less intensive strategies have been used for older, less fit patients. The past few years has also seen the arrival of several novel agents used in the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) disease. These targeted therapies combine relatively high response rates with a favorable side-effect profile making them ideal agents for use in this patient population.
