NHL is not a disease

When first diagnosed, many patients are told they have non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The problem; NHL isn’t a disease, it’s a series of more than 60 subtypes.

Each subtype requires different diagnostic evaluation and treatment approaches. This ensures patients receive the right treatment at the right time for the right subtype.

Empower Patients

Patients need to know their subtype to ensure they gather the correct information.

Report by Subtype

Accurate subtype reporting will lead to better understanding of the unmet needs of the patient.

Healthcare systems and government bodies around the world need more accurate subtype reporting to allow for accurate trending analysis and ensure patient needs are met.


Global Impact

Stop using the category NHL and initiate systemic change for naming and listing lymphomas. Recommended subtype headings are:

  • Hodgkin
  • T-Cell
  • B-Cell
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL)
