Proton therapy to treat Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin lymphomas
Lymphoma patients treated with proton therapy are being followed for longer term data and the number of clinical outcome studies is increasing. Protons are the best to achieve organ specific dose reduction for heart, lung, esophagus, breast and other structures. Reported data has shown encouraging disease control and an expected reduction in long-term adverse effects, given the minimized target volume and significant dose reduction to normal tissue.

Growing interest and implementation of proton therapy for Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin lymphomas
According to Dr. Bradfort S. Hoppe: “Using this modality potentially improves the therapeutic ratio. In Hodgkin lymphoma patients, proton therapy can help minimize toxicity and maximize the cure rate. In addition, many lymphomas are found in the mediastinum, adjacent to the lung, heart and breast tissue, which are all extremely sensitive to chemotherapy and radiation and can lead to second cancers and cardiac complications. Because of the fear of these long-term radiation toxicities, medical oncologists often won’t send their patients for radiation. However, proton therapy can potentially reduce these late toxicities.”
