Researchers from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute recently conducted a study to further evaluate late effects that survivors of Hodgkin’s lymphoma may experience. This study included 511 survivors, who were compared with siblings who had not been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s. The average age of both survivors and siblings was 44 years.
