Hello all.

I'm probably looking in the wrong place, but maybe somebody here
can't point me in the right direction.

My father has a type of lymphoma which has never been seen 
before, according to his doctors.  He has been to the mayo clinic 
but was denied any special research attention at NIH.

I find it hard to believe that he's the only one with this thing.  
Incidentally,  it looks like Lupus, but it isn't.   His problem is that
he has tremendous difficulty breathing.  He's on prednazone
and according to the doctors, its a catch 22.  Either the continued
use of prednazone will take him, or if he quits it, he'll probably get
pneumonia.

I'm looking for looking for a listing of research projects in progress
(anywhere in the world) that might come close to addressing his
problem

- or -

the right newsgroup to be posting questions about this.

Thanks in advance for any responses.
