Optimizing therapies for patients with Hodgkin lymphoma relies upon the identification of prognostic factors that will predict outcomes and guide treatment approaches. A cross-departmental group at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center recently published their findings on how baseline metabolic tumor volume is a predictive factor for patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma.

Following standards set by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), they measured pre- and post-therapy levels of TARC (cysteine-cysteine thymus and activation related chemokine) with the Ella automated immunoassay platform and Simple Plex™ TARC assay. The precise and reliable method of measuring this chemokine at both low and elevated levels enabled the research group’s decision to expand its evaluation to a second cohort in the study.
