ASCO 2013: Dr. Jeff Sharman on Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL)

Dr. Sharman is a great educator with a super blog on CLL and NHL (Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma) talks about MCL.

He points out the specific challenges with MCL and why the changes coming to treatment for other B cell lymphomas such as CLL might be even more helpful in this particular nasty cancer.

While not speaking specifically on CLL, the drugs he discusses should be familiar and his explanations of mechanism of action are both clear and creative- like coffee and road maps.

I will be interviewing Dr. Sharman and many others at iwCLL, a CLL specific conference in Cologne, Germany in a few weeks, so stay tuned. Please let me know if you have any burning questions.

Here is the short ASCO interview:

Again my thanks to the team at Patient Power with whom I worked at ASCO. Andrew Schorr and his team do important work for the CLL and cancer community, and it has been a pleasure to pool our energies and resources.
