Non-Therapeutic Protocol

BRIGHT: Brain Integrity in Survivors of Hodgkin Lymphoma Treated with Thoracic Radiation

Type of Protocol/Clinical Study

Supportive Studies: Long Term Effects : Hodgkin lymphoma survivors


In this study we are trying to understand how chest radiation to treat Hodgkin lymphoma affects heart and lung function and how that may also effect brain health. Hodgkin lymphoma survivors within the St. Jude Life study who were treated with chest radiation will be recruited to undergo evaluations of their heart, lungs and brain. We will also recruit a comparison sample of healthy people matching on age, sex and race. The comparison group will also complete evaluations of their heart, lung and brain.
