Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) is a targeted therapy combining radiobiological and immunological characteristics. RIT has been considered effective in terms of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) treatment and it can be used as the main therapy or as the element of the combined RIT and chemotherapy. Despite RIT’s effectiveness in NHL therapy, it is still rarely used.
