About this book

Over the past few decades, lymphoma patient outcomes have improved as a result of multidrug chemotherapy and radiation therapy, intensification of treatment, improvement in supportive care, and better imaging and staging systems. Even more recently, there has been tremendous progress in the understanding of cancer cell biology and its microenvironment which has resulted in the development of biologic agents, also called "target" therapies. These therapies are more specific in targeting cancer cells either directly or via enhancement of the immune system. Many clinical studies have focused on biological agents in combination with traditional chemotherapy with the goal of improved outcomes, or reduced acute long term complications that are associated with lymphoma therapy. 

This volume will review different classes of "target" drugs that have been developed, approved, or are under investigation in the field of lymphoma therapy. The discussion will not only be on the understanding of the mechanisms of action or clinical response of those agents, but will also help the reader to understand the nature of lymphoma biology in patients who relapse or are refractor after exposure to those drugs. 

Contributors will discuss what is currently known about mechanisms of tumor-related or host-related resistance, and how to overcome this resistance. This understanding is crucial given the dismal outcomes of patients with relapsed or refractory lymphomas. The book provides a unique opportunity to review and reflect on the recent successes and pitfalls of the modern lymphoma therapy era.

Dr. Cairo joined the faculty of Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) in 1982 and established the BMT/Stem Cell Transplant program there in 1985 as Director of Blood and Marrow Transplantation. Also, at CHOC Dr. Cairo was the Principal Investigator (PI) for Children’s Cancer Group and PI of the Cord Blood Collection Center and Cord Blood Transplant Center under an NHLBI award. In 1997, Dr. Cairo was recruited to Georgetown University where he became a Professor of Pediatrics, Medicine and Pathology and Chief of the Division of Stem Cell Transplantation, Cellular and Gene Therapy and Director of the Adult and Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplantation program at the Lombardi Cancer Center and Medical Director of the NHLBI Cord Blood Collection Center and Cord Blood Bank. In 2000, Dr. Cairo was recruited to Columbia University and was a Professor of Pediatrics, Medicine and Pathology and Director of the Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation, member of the executive committee of the Department of Pediatrics, Medical Director of the National Marrow Donor Unrelated Transplant program, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation and member of the executive steering committee of the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. In 2011 Dr. Cairo was recruited to NYMC and WMC. Dr. Cairo has over 410 peer reviewed publications, over 1200 national and international abstract presentations, over 50 book chapters and edited 2 textbooks.
