abstract

  • Infections are common in advanced stage indolent lymphoma (37.5% in our series). Anecdotal lymphoma responses have been seen and three have been durable CRs (18 to 30+ months) with infection eradication alone. The identification and treatment of associated infections may be a first step towards developing a lymphoma prevention strategy.
