Answer

Patients with lymphoma who are being managed at peripheral health care facilities may require their care to be transferred to a tertiary care or research institute for access to clinical trials and investigational agents.

Patients who are profoundly ill or are experiencing significant complications from either the disease or its therapy also warrant transfer to a facility that is better equipped to handle such emergencies.
