Kirk E. Cahill, MD, and Sonali M. Smith, MD, spoke with CancerNetwork® about their review of the current management and treatment of follicular lymphoma published in the journal ONCOLOGY®.

Kirk E. Cahill, MD, and Sonali M. Smith, MD, both of the Department of Medicine, Section of Hematology/Oncology at the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center in Chicago, Illinois, spoke about their manuscript titled, ‘Follicular Lymphoma: a Focus on Current and Emerging Therapies,’ that was recently published in the journal ONCOLOGY®.

In the review, the authors explore current approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of follicular lymphoma, with a focus on emerging investigational therapies and novel combination strategies. Some areas of unmet need they touch on in the paper include precision approaches to individual patients, trial end points with quality-of-life measures, and guidance for sequencing of available regimens and agents.
