Although mantle cell lymphoma has been described as "moderately aggressive" it has become clear that it carries a worse long-term prognosis than other subtypes of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. In recent years, this has prompted numerous clinical trials of novel and more aggressive therapies in hopes of impacting these poor outcomes. These include more intensive combination chemotherapy regimens, monoclonal antibody therapy in conjunction with other treatments or conjugated to radioactive isotopes, high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous or allogeneic stem cell transplantation, and newer targeted therapies based on increasing understanding of the molecular pathways of this malignancy.
