Questions Asked by the Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma Community:
- Can peripheral T-cell-NOS (not otherwise specified) come back indolent?
- I was wondering how to find a physician that has treated people with subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma?
- Is there anything that can help with fatigue and itching?
- Are there vaccine therapy trials for PTCL?
- At what point do you recommend a clinical trial? Should patients try standard or proven methods first?
- Does malignant mastocytosis have any relationship to peripheral T-cell lymphoma?
- Is there a replacement or successor for Ontak® (denileukin diftitox) since it was withdrawn at the end of 2013?
- Will Revlimid® (lenalidomide) be used for any of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas?
- Can you comment on the role of autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants, and also the rationale for having an autologous transplant followed by an allogeneic transplant?
- I've heard that brentuximab vedotin is being studied in children with relapsed systemic anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. Are there any results from these studies?
- Are mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome the same?
- Are there any drug interactions to look for with brentuximab vedotin?
- What are some treatment options for CD30-positive ALCL other than methotrexate?
- Radiation is listed as a treatment option. Is that only during transplant or is it sometimes used alone?
- Are there specific treatments for recurring enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL) type II?
- How often should a patient in remission from anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma be getting positron emission tomography (PET) or computed tomography (CT) scans?
- Since PTCL is uncommon, are there resources to help me connect with others who can relate to what I'm going through?
- I'm on pralatrexate for PTCL and was wondering if I can get the shingles vaccine?
