Dr. Ajay Gopal
Dr. Ajay Gopal specializes in treating patients with lymphoma. In this video he discusses how SCCA specializes in immunotherapy, a way to harness the immune system to treat cancer. Stem cell transplantation is an example of immunotherapy. The SCCA currently ranks first in one-year survival for patients receiving stem cell transplants to treat lymphoma. Another method for treating lymphoma is radio immunotherapy. Whole body radiation treatments expose the whole body to radiation whereas radio immunotherapy preferentially targets tumor sites and delivers less radiation to areas not needing treatment.
