Will it work for small B cell grade 3 follicular Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  I had Hodgkins Lymphoma in 04 and had to undergo chemo and radiation.  I almost died 5 times and my immune system is permanently damaged.  After the treatment I have been Hodgkins free but my NHL has mutated into a more aggressive form.

Yes, sounds very good. No it's not available. No there will be no human trials any time soon. FDA needs a proper body count before volunteers are allowed to try new treatments. Between the time hope appears and trials begin is about 5 years. Unfortunately that means many of us will never get the opportunity to try or learn anything of this discovery. Oh well, it's always nice having something pleasant to dream about.

I'd like to know why after decades of research and billions of dollars spent the "hope" is still so far off.

Because no one is paying researchers for FINDING a cure.  They pay for the research part.
