This generally occurs in bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, blood and other organs that are part of lymphatic system. The patients suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are observed with symptoms like fever, weight loss, swelling of lymph nodes, anorexia, fatigue and dyspnoea. Treatment of the NHL depends whether the cells are fast or slow growing and also whether it is spread in one area or different areas of the body. Treatment options for NHL include immunotherapy, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, targeted therapy, monoclonal antibody therapy and radiation therapy. If blood thickens in the patient due to presence of antibodies then plasmapheresis can also be carried out. Various products available for treating lymphoma include Deltasone, Adcertis, Folotyn, Adriamycin, Prednicot, Leukeran, Velcade, Thioplex and Decadron.

The launch of new drugs in the near future expected to support the growth of non-hodgkins lymphoma treatment market. For instance, a new drug Axicabtagene ciloleucel, received priority review status to get commercialize for the treatment of non-hodgkins lymphoma as a second line therapy. This drug is expected to launch in later of year 2017.

Some cellular therapies such as T cell therapy and CAR T cell therapy are also being developed where patient’s own T cells are used to attack non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cells. Also various small molecule targeted therapies such as idelalisib and ibrutinib are latest advancements for the treatment of NHL.

Rituxan drug which is used to treat NHL and had been a front-line treatment regimen, though there has been an increasing rituximab resistance. To overcome this resistance, there has been various R&D practices that will create space in the market. For instance, Roche, Inc. is conducting phase IIIstudy of Gazyva/Gazyvaro in people with previously untreated with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. . The extension of already marketed drugs such as Velcade as a front-line therapy for mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), Revlimid for maintenance therapy of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and Adcetris for CD30 T-cell lymphoma would be further contributing towards the non-hodgkins lymphoma treatment market growth.
