A transfusion means that donated blood is added to your own blood through an intravenous drip into a vein in the arm.
The London Clinic offers this transformative cell therapy to cancer patients. CAR-T cell therapy is a cutting-edge treatment for adults with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Immune cells are collected from patients and genetically modified to destroy cancer cells. This revolutionary therapy can offer hope for people who have no other treatment options.
The cell saver programme recovers and recycles the patient’s own blood that may be lost during an operation. The process ‘cleans’ the blood, extracting the red cells, which can then be transfused back into the patient.
The choice of treatment depends on the type and location of the lymphoma, how advanced the cancer is and the age and general health of the individual. Your consultant may order some diagnostic tests to help gather more information. The three main treatments are surgery, radiotherapy, and drug therapy.
Analysis of a blood sample will show abnormally large, fragile red blood cells (megaloblasts) and a low haemoglobin count, but these are characteristic of all forms of anaemia. Usually, if atrophic gastritis (a thinning of the stomach lining) is identified at endoscopy, this is a very positive sign that pernicious anaemia has developed.
