Hodgkin’s Lymphoma: An Environmental Scan

Table of Contents

5.0 CONCLUSIONS

In concluding the environmental scan for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the key messaging is that a priority and emphasis must be placed on continuing to develop new conventional and alternative therapy options for individuals facing treatment for HL. In addition, research into primary prevention strategies including diet and the development of vaccines to control infectious diseases associated with HL could dramatically impact the number of new cases. The final recommendation to the Rasch foundation is to diversify the financial resources across research that will lead to a better understanding of the impact diet has both from a prevention and treatment perspective in Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, while simultaneously supportive research and clinical activity focused on developing new and emerging therapies in order to reduce the late effects of conventional treatment.
