Burkitt’s lymphoma is a disease that can frequently be cured using intensive chemotherapy when found in younger patients. However, the high toxicity of this treatment programme makes it unsuitable for treating the disease when it occurs in elderly patients. Dr Antonio Pinto explains how the treatment of older cancer patients will be addressed at the upcoming ecancer meeting on blood cancers in elderly patients to be held in Rome, 18-20th March 2011.
