Hi, 

My mom had been an RA sufferrer for the last 30 years.

She was recently diagnosed with Stage-4 Follicular Lymphoma and starting R-CHOP next Monday.

Is there any experience with how RA treatment  (immuno suppressants) might affect the chemo response? 

Will appreciate feedback...

Regards,

Ozgur
