Promising 'Stop Switch' Discovered that Could Stop Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in its Tracks

Is it possible to reverse the switch for genetic mutations?

You can't help the genes that you are born with, so what can we do to help people who might be predisposed to getting this terrible lymphoma? The scientists want to solve this puzzle too. Luckily, they are looking into a way to help reverse the loss of PD-1 in these patients. There may be medications that could be developed to do this task, which would theoretically help turn this "stop switch" back on and destroy malignant lymphoma cells.
