September 15 is World Lymphoma Awareness Day and each year this day is dedicated to increasing awareness of all types of lymphoma and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. For further details visit World Lymphoma Awareness Day – Lymphoma Coalition.

Lymphoma is one of the main types of blood cancers, with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma being the two main subtypes. The Global Burden of Disease Study found the incidence has risen substantially over the last 30+ years.

Hodgkin’s lymphoma

1990 – 59,000

2019 – 87,000

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

1990 – 190,000

2019 – 457,000

In 2020, a study evaluating non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma found there were 544,000 new cases globally.

Perth Blood Institute (PBI) understands the importance of safe and effective treatment options for people diagnosed with lymphoma. We currently have clinical trials for several different types of lymphoma:

  • Relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma
  • Marginal zone lymphoma
  • B-cell lymphoma
  • Small lymphocytic lymphoma
  • Mantle cell lymphoma

To find out more about these clinical trials, please visit our website.

Living with a lymphoma diagnosis

Gemma was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2010, and after participating in clinical trials at PBI, she is in remission and enjoying life with her family. Visit our website to read Gemma's amazing journey.

Ashley has been living with Mantle Cell Lymphoma since 2012. After joining a clinical trial, Ashley went into remission, and nearly 10 years after his diagnosis, the cancer had returned. In 2022, Ashley joined another PBI clinical trial, showing positive results. Ashley's story
