Lymphomas, including Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin disease, are among the most common cancer types in children. About 90 percent of patients can be cured by available therapies. At the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore, our multidisciplinary team of experts, including pediatric medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, are highly skilled in treating children with these cancers. Our pediatric medical oncologists specialize in identifying patients who potentially can be cured with chemotherapy alone, sparing some the need for radiation treatments.
Physicians with the program work closely with specialists at our Bone Marrow Transplant Program to co-manage patients who have relapsed and would benefit from bone marrow transplantation. They also work with specialists who treat lymphomas in adult patients, offering easy access to clinical trials not offered in many pediatric medical centers.
In addition, experts with the program conduct research incorporating novel drugs in the treatment of lymphomas. Our physicians are leaders in both the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) and the Therapeutic Advances in Childhood Leukemia & Lymphoma (TACL) consortia, ensuring that the most promising new therapies are available for our patients.
