Keeping you up to date with all the Lymphoma Team news
In March the lymphoma team were the first in the UK to recruit two new patients with follicular lymphoma into the clinical trial ReBel. This new trial is to see how well lenalidomide and rituximab work with or without bendamustine in people with relapsed follicular lymphoma. For further information about this trial please click here.
Clinical trial patient Nigel and his wife Julie presented Dr Kim Linton with a beautiful hand crafted advent calendar for The Lymphoma Team just in time for advent!
We are delighted with the thoughtful gift which Julie has been making since August and it will have pride of place in our office for everyone to enjoy. Thank you to Nigel and Julie and a Merry Christmas to all our patients and their families!
In November Professor Radford was announced as winner of the ‘Lifetime Achievement’ category at the Greater Manchester Clinical Research Awards. He has led many practice-changing trials in lymphoma and is an internationally recognised leader in the field so as a team we are extremely pleased he was recognised in this way.
Professor Radford was humbled and regarded the award as ‘flying the flag for all the high impact clinical research going on at the Christie and our partners, including other trusts, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK'.
In July we became the first site in the world to open the new CTCL chart review study. This study looks at real-world treatment patterns and outcomes in relapsed/refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL).
We give a warm welcome to our new research nurse Chiara Dallatorre who started on the team in June 2017. Chiara is an experienced haematology nurse who has previously worked for Blackpool Victoria Hospital and we are sure she will make a great addition to our research team.
Professor John Radford has recently been invited to join the editorial board of the AOL (Annals of Lymphoma) which is a rising high quality electronic journal, openly distributed worldwide relating to lymphoma research.
In January Professor Radford and Dr Gibb were named as lead authors on a Pfizer abstract to be presented at the International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma in Lugano, Switzerland in June 2017.
