  • Patients must have available medical records for the date of diagnosis of cHL and available medical records documenting any prior treatment and treatment dates for the Hodgkin lymphoma, including chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and other anti-cancer therapy received.
  • Patients must consent for use of their FFPE tissue blocks for exploratory analyses
