This Might Be The Future of Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment

Adcetris is much less toxic than bleomycin, which is traditionally used

Adcetris is such an attractive anti-cancer agent. Not only is it successful at getting rid of the cancer cells, but it's also got much fewer side effects than the traditional therapy.  Bleomycin can cause a lot of temporary side effects including weight loss, mouth sores, and vomiting. However, there are also permanent and serious adversities with bleomycin too, which include lung toxicity and scarring.
