Tsongas in hospital for cancer treatment

January 07, 1993|By New York Times News Service

Former Sen. Paul E. Tsongas of Massachusetts was admitted to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston yesterday for further treatment of lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system, officials of the hospital said.

Mr. Tsongas, a Democratic Party presidential candidate last year, was reported in good condition. He entered the hospital for monitoring of the chemotherapy he is receiving in his latest battle against lymphoma.

Mr. Tsongas, 51, said in a statement that he had asked Dana-Farber officials not to issue further statements about his condition until the treatment is completed. At that time, the statement said, he will issue a summary of his progress and respond to inquiries from reporters.

Mr. Tsongas left Dana-Farber on Dec. 25 after a two-week stay to treat an infection that was a complication of chemotherapy.
