On this episode of Battling And Beating Cancer we discuss maintenance therapy for lymphomas. The availability of important new therapies with minimal side effects over the past several years has provided patients and their physicians with more options. But how effective is maintenance therapy and does it limit your options down the road? Weighing the potential benefits and risks of maintenance therapy is not always easy. Dr. John Seymour, Head of the Department of Haematology at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, joins Scott and Charlene to discuss maintenance therapy for lymphomas. Dr. Seymour recently received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
