Abstract

Targeted therapy using monoclonal antibodies against a tumor-specific antigen is now an established mode of therapy in the management of malignant lymphomas. Radioimmunotherapy, a novel way of delivering systemic radiotherapy concurrently with immunotherapy, has finally appeared on the horizon, with promising results. Recent clinical trials have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of radioimmunoconjugates. Durable antitumor responses have been achieved, even in heavily pretreated patients. The optimal position that these novel agents should take in the algorithm of lymphoma therapy remains to be defined.
