The article reports that the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR ) inhibitor TORISEL (R) (temsirolimus) has been approved by the European Commission for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed and/or refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Torisel is said to be used for the first-line treatment of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma. It looks at TORISEL as an important option for the allegedly difficult-to-treat disease, relapsed and refractory mantle cell lymphoma.
