Radioimmunotherapy could boost survival for lymphoma patients

A new study presented at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging finds that radioimmunotherapy paired with chemotherapy may be a more effective treatment for battling advanced lymphoma.

According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 79,030 people will be diagnosed with lymphoma in 2013, while 20,000 are estimated to die from the disease this year.
