Dr Peter Vandenberghe - Universitair Ziekenhuis Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

Dr Vandenberghe talks to ecancertv at ASH 2014 about his work on the genomic landscape of Hodgkin lymphoma.

One challenge with the clinical analysis of Hodgkin lymphoma is the difficulty of extracting genetic information on malignant cells when they are outnumbered by non-malignant cells. However, Dr Vandenberghe has developed a technique to extract genomic information from circulating cell-free DNA, allowing him to detect the malignant cells .

This novel discovery is the first step towards the development of biomarker-based detection and treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma.
