Treatment Options for Lymphoma - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with lymphoma. This video will help you understand some of the available treatment options. Lymphoma is a cancer that begins in your lymphatic system. In the lymphatic tissue, lymphoma originates in certain types of white blood cells called lymphocytes. In lymphoma, the lymphocytes become abnormal and multiply to make too many abnormal cells that don't work properly. The two main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Your doctor will make a treatment plan specifically for your lymphoma. It will be based on the type of lymphoma, the stage, your symptoms, age, overall health, and other factors. Treatment options may include one or more of the following: chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and stem cell transplant. Chemotherapy is usually injected into a vein under the skin or taken as a pill orally. The chemotherapy then enters the bloodstream to reach and destroy cancer cells. Another treatment option is radiation therapy. It uses high energy rays to kill cancer cells or stop them from growing. The target area of the radiation varies depending on the stage and type of lymphoma. The type of radiation therapy used for lymphoma is external beam radiation. It uses a machine that aims carefully focused beams of radiation at the cancer from outside of the body. Targeted therapy drugs act on specific targets or markers on cancer cells. Since cancer cells may have more of these markers than normal cells do, targeted therapy drugs may affect cancer cells more than normal cells. When targeted therapy drug is attached to the markers on cancer cells, the cancer cells may stop growing and dividing, It can also lead to cell death. Immunotherapy can help your immune system fight lymphoma. For example, monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made versions of proteins that the immune system makes to help fight infections. Monoclonal antibodies can be designed to attack specific targets such as markers on lymphoma cells. When attached to immune cells, monoclonal antibodies can help recognize and destroy the lymphoma cells. A stem cell transplant replaces blood-forming stem cells that were damaged or destroyed during your cancer treatment with either your or a healthy donor stem cells. First, healthy stem cells are collected from you or a donor. Then the stem cells are stored while you receive treatment for cancer such as chemotherapy or radiation to try to kill all your blood cells. After these treatments are complete, the healthy stem cells are put into your blood through an intravenous line or IV. In your body, these blood-forming stem cells provide a healthy supply of future blood cells. Your doctor may prescribe a combination of the treatments we've discussed or different treatment options than those mentioned here. As you deal with a diagnosis of lymphoma, continue to talk to your doctor and your cancer care team.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
