A group of heterogeneous lymphoid tumors generally expressing one or more B-cell antigens or representing malignant transformations of B-lymphocytes.
Any of a group of malignant tumors of lymphoid tissue that differ from HODGKIN DISEASE, being more heterogeneous with respect to malignant cell lineage, clinical course, prognosis, and therapy. The only common feature among these tumors is the absence of giant REED-STERNBERG CELLS, a characteristic of Hodgkin's disease.
A group of heterogeneous lymphoid tumors representing malignant transformations of T-lymphocytes.
Malignant lymphoma composed of large B lymphoid cells whose nuclear size can exceed normal macrophage nuclei, or more than twice the size of a normal lymphocyte. The pattern is predominantly diffuse. Most of these lymphomas represent the malignant counterpart of B-lymphocytes at midstage in the process of differentiation.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
Extranodal lymphoma of lymphoid tissue associated with mucosa that is in contact with exogenous antigens. Many of the sites of these lymphomas, such as the stomach, salivary gland, and thyroid, are normally devoid of lymphoid tissue. They acquire mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type as a result of an immunologically mediated disorder.
A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe.

A group of malignant lymphomas thought to derive from peripheral T-lymphocytes in lymph nodes and other nonlymphoid sites. They include a broad spectrum of lymphocyte morphology, but in all instances express T-cell markers admixed with epithelioid histiocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils. Although markedly similar to large-cell immunoblastic lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, LARGE-CELL, IMMUNOBLASTIC), this group's unique features warrant separate treatment.

Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
A systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.

Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
One of the mechanisms by which CELL DEATH occurs (compare with NECROSIS and AUTOPHAGOCYTOSIS). Apoptosis is the mechanism responsible for the physiological deletion of cells and appears to be intrinsically programmed. It is characterized by distinctive morphologic changes in the nucleus and cytoplasm, chromatin cleavage at regularly spaced sites, and the endonucleolytic cleavage of genomic DNA; (DNA FRAGMENTATION); at internucleosomal sites. This mode of cell death serves as a balance to mitosis in regulating the size of animal tissues and in mediating pathologic processes associated with tumor growth.

RNA present in neoplastic tissue.
Proteins associated with the inner surface of the lipid bilayer of the viral envelope. These proteins have been implicated in control of viral transcription and may possibly serve as the "glue" that binds the nucleocapsid to the appropriate membrane site during viral budding from the host cell.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

Carcinogenicity of triethanolamine in mice and its mutagenicity after reaction with sodium nitrite in bacteria. (1/6021)

Mice fed a diet containing 0.3 or 0.03% triethanolamine developed malignant tumors. Females showed a high incidence of tumors in lymphoid tissues, while this type was absent in males. Tumors in other tissues were produced at a considerable rate in both sexes, but no hepatoma was found. Triethanolamine was not mutagenic to Bacillus subtilis by itself, but it became mutagenic after reacting with sodium nitrite under acidic conditions or when the mixture was heated. Although N-nitrosodiethanolamine, a known carcinogen and mutagen, was detected in the reaction mixture by thin-layer chromatography, it may not be the main mutagenic product, because the product was a stable and direct mutagen and its mutagenic activity was destroyed by liver enzymes, unlike N-nitrosodiethanolamine. The lethal and mutagenic DNA damages produced by this unidentified product were susceptible to some extent to the repair functions of the bacteria.  (+info)

Immune responses to all ErbB family receptors detectable in serum of cancer patients. (2/6021)

Employing NIH3T3 transfectants with individual human ErbB receptor coding sequences as recombinant antigen sources, we detected by immunoblot analysis specific immunoreactivity against all four ErbB receptors among 13 of 41 sera obtained from patients with different types of epithelial malignancies. Overall, serum positivity was most frequently directed against ErbB2 followed by EGFR, ErbB3 and ErbB4. Specificity patterns comprised tumor patients with unique serum reactivity against ErbB2 or ErbB4. Moreover, approximately half of the positive sera exhibited concomitant reactivity with multiple ErbB receptors including EGFR and ErbB2, EGFR and ErbB4, ErbB2 and ErbB3 or EGFR, ErbB2 and ErbB3. Serum reactivity was confirmed for the respective ErbB receptors expressed by human tumor cells and corroborated on receptor-specific immunoprecipitates. Positive sera contained ErbB-specific antibodies of the IgG isotype. Representative immunohistochemical analysis of tumor tissues suggested overexpression of ErbB receptors for which serum antibodies were detectable in five of six patients. These findings implicate multiple ErbB receptors including ErbB3 and ErbB4 in addition to EGFR and ErbB2 in primary human cancer. Heterogeneity of natural ErbB-specific responses in cancer patients warrants their evaluation in light of immunotherapeutic approaches targeting these receptors.  (+info)

ATF-2-binding regulatory element is responsible for the Ly49A expression in murine T lymphoid line, EL-4. (3/6021)

To understand the mechanism of Ly49A-expression and its significance in T-cell differentiation, we analyzed the 5'-flanking region of the Ly49A gene in a search for the Ly49A-regulatory element. Since very few known regulatory elements have been found in this region, presumably a novel regulatory sequence(s) could exist. Accordingly, we defined the 13-bp regulatory element, 5'-ATGACGAGGAGGA-3', restricted to Ly49A-expression in EL-4 cells in comparison with two other representative cell lines tested. This element, designated as EL13, proved to be previously undiscovered by homology search and is highly homologous with several virus DNAs. Using EL13 as a probe we have cloned a cDNA encoding a binding protein to EL13. Its deduced nucleotide sequence revealed that EL13-binding protein is almost identical with rat ATF-2. Although ATF-2 is known to bind to cyclic AMP responsive element (CRE), EL13 shares five out of eight nucleotides with this consensus sequence. Our results suggested that ATF-2 may play an important role via binding to EL13 for the expression of Ly49A. These data will provide useful information for understanding T-cell and NK-cell differentiation in murine immune system.  (+info)

Incidence and occupational pattern of leukaemias, lymphomas, and testicular tumours in western Ireland over an 11 year period. (4/6021)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine incidence of the following malignancies, testicular tumours, all leukaemias and all lymphomas in the West of Ireland in an 11 year period. Secondly, to examine the relation between disease patterns and available occupational data in male subjects of working age. DESIGN: A census survey of all cases occurring in the three counties in the Western Health Board (WHB) area, Galway, Mayo and Roscommon, for the 11 year period 1980 to 1990 inclusive. Average annual age standardised incidence rates for the period were calculated using the 1986 census data. Rates for the area are compared with rates from the southern region of Ireland, which had a tumour registry. Trends over the time period are evaluated. All male subjects for whom occupational data were available were categorised using the Irish socioeconomic group classification and incidence rates by occupation were compared using the standardised incidence ratio method. In one of the counties, Galway, a detailed occupational history of selected cases and an age matched control group was also elicited through patients' general practitioners. SETTING: All available case records in the West of Ireland. RESULTS: There are no national incidence records for the period. Compared with data from the Southern Tumour Registry, the number of cases of women with myeloid leukaemias was significantly lower. Male leukaemia rates were significantly lower as a group (SIR 84 (95% CI 74, 95) but not when considered as individual categories. Regression analysis revealed an increasing trend in the number of new cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among both men (r = 0.47, p = 0.02) and women (r = 0.90, p = 0.0001) and of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia in men (r = 0.77, p = 0.005) and women (r = 0.68 p = 0.02) in the WHB region over the last decade. Four hundred and fifty six male cases over the age of 15 years were identified and adequate occupational information was available for 74% of these. Standardised incidence ratios of testicular tumours 100, 938) and agriworkers other than farmers (SIR 377, 95% CI 103, 967). There were also significantly increased incidence ratios for both non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (SIR 169, 95% CI 124, 266) and three categories of leukaemias among farmers. Hodgkin's disease and acute myeloid leukaemias were significantly increased among semi-skilled people. Interview data with 90 cases and 54 controls of both sexes revealed that among farmers, cases (n = 31) were significantly less likely than controls (n = 20) to use tractor mounted spraying techniques (OR = 0.19 (95% CI 0.04, 0.80)) and less likely to wear protective masks (OR 0.22 (95% CI 0.05, 0.84)). CONCLUSIONS: Trends of increase in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and some leukaemias are consistent with studies elsewhere. The study provides further evidence of the relation between agricultural work and certain lymphoproliferative cancers. The possible carcinogenic role of chemicals used in agricultural industries must be considered as an explanation.  (+info)

Ovine MHC class II DRB1 alleles associated with resistance or susceptibility to development of bovine leukemia virus-induced ovine lymphoma. (6/6021)

For the further characterization of bovine leukemia virus (BLV)-induced leukemogenesis, we investigated the association between polymorphism of ovine leukocyte antigen (OLA)-DRB1 gene and tumor development after infection of sheep with BLV. We infected 28 sheep with BLV and cloned exon 2 of the OLA-DRB1 gene from asymptomatic animals and from animals with lymphoma Sequence analysis revealed that, among 12 healthy sheep without any evidence of tumor, ten (83.3%) carried DRB1 alleles encoding Arg-Lys (RK) at positions beta70/71 as compared with only 6 (37.5%) of the 16 sheep with lymphoma, which suggested that alleles encoding the RK motif might protect against development of tumors after infection by BLV. By contrast, alleles encoding Ser-Arg (SR) at positions beta70/71 were present at a significantly elevated frequency in sheep with lymphoma as compared with the healthy carriers, which indicated that OLA-DRB1 alleles encoding the SR motif might be positively related to susceptibility to tumor development. The two amino acids in these motifs line a pocket that accommodates the side chain of a bound peptide according to a model of the crystal structure of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR1. To analyze immunoreactions of sheep with alleles that encoded RK or SR at beta70/71, we selected sheep with either the RK/SR genotypes or the SR/SR genotypes and immunized them with a mixture of multiple synthetic antigenic peptides that corresponded to T-helper, T-cytotoxic, and B-cell epitopes of the BLV envelope glycoprotein gp51. Two weeks after the last immunization, all of the sheep were challenged with BLV. Sheep with the RK/SR genotype produced neutralizing antibodies against BLV; they eliminated BLV completely within 28 weeks of the BLV challenge, and they gave strong lymphocyte-proliferative responses to the peptides used for immunization. Moreover, such animals did not develop lymphoma. By contrast, sheep with the SR/SR genotype continued to produce BLV throughout the experimental period and developed terminal disease. Our results indicate that the differences in immunoresponse were due to differences in major histocompatibility complex class II alleles and reflected the risk of BLV-induced leukemogenesis. In addition, it appears that susceptibility to tumor development may be determined to some extent by polymorphic residues binding to antigenic peptides directly within the binding cleft of the OLA-DR molecule.  (+info)

Cytochrome P450 CYP1B1 determines susceptibility to 7, 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced lymphomas. (7/6021)

CYP1B1-null mice, created by targeted gene disruption in embryonic stem cells, were born at the expected frequency from heterozygous matings with no observable phenotype, thus establishing that CYP1B1 is not required for mouse development. CYP1B1 was not detectable in cultured embryonic fibroblast (EF) or in different tissues, such as lung, of the CYP1B1-null mouse treated with the aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonist 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin whereas the equivalent wild-type EF cells express basal and substantial inducible CYP1B1 and lung expresses inducible CYP1B1. CYP1A1 is induced to far higher levels than CYP1B1 in liver, kidney, and lung in wild-type mice and is induced to a similar extent in CYP1B1-null mice. 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) was toxic in wild-type EFs that express CYP1B1 but not CYP1A1. These cells effectively metabolized DMBA, consistent with CYP1B1 involvement in producing the procarcinogenic 3,4-dihydrodiol as a major metabolite, whereas CYP1B1-null EF showed no significant metabolism and were resistant to DMBA-mediated toxicity. When wild-type mice were administered high levels of DMBA intragastrically, 70% developed highly malignant lymphomas whereas only 7.5% of CYP1B1-null mice had lymphomas. Skin hyperplasia and tumors were also more frequent in wild-type mice. These results establish that CYP1B1, located exclusively at extrahepatic sites, mediates the carcinogenicity of DMBA. Surprisingly, CYP1A1, which has a high rate of DMBA metabolism in vitro, is not sufficient for this carcinogenesis, which demonstrates the importance of extrahepatic P450s in determining susceptibility to chemical carcinogens and validates the search for associations between P450 expression and cancer risk in humans.  (+info)

Can we cure indolent lymphomas? (8/6021)

The current consensus is that indolent lymphomas are incurable disorders. There are some indications that these malignancies are potentially curable. Indeed, not all indolent lymphomas are currently incurable. For example, patients with Ann Arbor stage I-II indolent lymphomas can experience long-term disease-free survival and probable cure. Also, from the available literature data, it seems that the achievement of a molecular complete remission is a desirable objective. Patients who achieve a persistently negative PCR state seldom relapse, whereas the opposite is true for persistently positive cases. In view of its excellent correlation with disease-free survival when examined serially in multiple blood or marrow samples, the PCR technique has the potential of providing a tumor marker that can be used as an early end point for clinical trials. By serving as an early surrogate end point, PCR could play an important role in expediting the development of new treatment strategies. Whether IFN is capable of increasing the molecular complete remission rate as measured by PCR is not known. However, it is clear that from the clinical standpoint, IFN has been able to increase 2-fold the length of remission in patients with advanced indolent lymphomas. In at least two studies, this has been associated with prolongation of survival. More intensive regimens such as alternating triple therapy, when used in combination with IFN, seem to have improved the quality of remissions as judged by the PCR assay. Finally, the site where the bcl-2 breakpoint occurs seems to have clinical significance. Those follicular lymphomas with germ-line bcl-2, in our experience, have behaved more aggressively than the others, and their failure-free survival seems different from the usual indolent lymphomas and more closely resembles the large cell lymphomas. Although the biological significance of this observation is not yet understood, this group might actually constitute a prognostically different subset with a more aggressive and perhaps more curable lymphoma. Whether the plateau observed in their failure-free survival curve will be maintained with more follow-up and whether they might be a curable subset remain to be determined.  (+info)

Lymphomas are any cancers of the lymphatic tissues. They are distinguished/classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) system, using the latest information on the appearance and growth pattern of the lymphoma cells and genetic features, including whether or not it is a Hodgkin lymphoma, a T-cell or B-cell lymphoma, and the site from which the lymphoma arises.. Hodgkin lymphoma is marked by the presence of a type of cell called the Reed-Sternberg cell.. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas, which are defined as being all lymphomas except Hodgkin lymphoma, are more common than Hodgkin lymphoma. A wide variety of lymphomas are in this class, and the causes, the types of cells involved, and the prognosis vary by type. The incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma increases with age. It is further divided into several subtypes ...

Central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma is a condition in which malignant cells are present in the lymph tissue of the brain and/or spinal cord. Treatment for CNS lymphoma generally does not include surgery. Instead, nonsurgical treatments, namely corticosteroids, chemotherapy and/or whole-brain radiation therapy, are used to treat CNS lymphoma.. Lymphoma designates a group of cancers that arise from white blood cells called lymphocytes. Because lymphocytes travel in the blood and lymph tissue and pass in and out of the CNS, lymphoma too can develop in various places in the body, including the CNS. CNS lymphoma is an aggressive type of lymphoma.. CNS lymphoma comes in two forms, depending on the origin of the tumor, and can produce single or multiple growths. ...
Lymphoma is typically a solid tumor of mature white blood cells in lymphoid tissue. The major clinical and pathological subtypes of adulthood lymphoma include follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. However, the World Health Organization recognizes 70 different forms of lymphoma. Lymphomas typically affect the lymph nodes, unlike leukemia, which affects the bone marrow. The molecular and biological pathways responsible for cell adhesion, cell cycle, PI-3-Kinase/AKT signaling, and T cell differentiation are dysregulated during lymphoma. Dysregulated gene expression, mutations, and differentially methylated promoters are routinely detected in molecular analyses of lymphoma samples. Analyzing and monitoring these affected pathways may lead to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind lymphoma development, classification, and therapeutic response ...
Treatment varies depending on the exact type of B or T-cell lymphoma you have, where it has spread in your body and how fast it is likely to grow. Your age and your general health are also taken into account. When deciding how to treat your lymphoma it is important to know how fast it is likely to grow and cause problems in your body. This is called the grade of your lymphoma.. Some types of lymphoma grow slowly, cause few symptoms and may not need to be treated urgently. These are known as indolent lymphomas (also called low-grade lymphomas). Others grow more quickly, cause more severe symptoms and generally need to be treated soon after they are diagnosed. These are known as aggressive lymphomas (also called intermediate-grade and high-grade lymphomas).. Low-grade lymphomas (indolent). Many low-grade lymphomas take years to grow, cause few if any symptoms and do not necessarily need to be treated initially. In these cases the doctor may recommend regular checkups to carefully monitor your ...
Serum protein electrophoresis was performed in 63% of 1,069 consecutive patients with lymphoma. No monoclonal peaks of IgM specificity were found in sera from 345 patients with nodular lymphoma or Hodgkins disease. Of the remaining 333 patients with diffuse lymphoma, 1.5% had an IgG peak, suggesting a coincidental relationship of IgG peaks to lymphoma. IgM peaks occurred in 3.6% of patients with diffuse lymphoma, a prevalence about 60 times more frequent than that in normal subjects. Such peaks were more frequent in older patients, suggesting an increased incidence of lymphomas producing monoclonal macroglobulins with advancing age. There was a close correlation between lymphoma mass and the level of the IgM peak in individual patients. Results supported the value of identifying monoclonal components in all patients with lymphoma, particularly those with diffuse lymphocytic infiltration. ...
Lymphomas. Lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in cells of the lymphatic system. There are many types of lymphomas; however, these tumors are commonly divided into two main categories: Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins Lymphomas.. Lymphomas are curable if detected early and treatments are well tolerated. Historically, Non-Hodgkins Lymphomas were one of the first cancers cured with Radiation Therapy alone due to its radiation sensitivity.. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas can be further divided into cancers that have an indolent (slow-growing) course and those that have an aggressive (fast-growing) course. These sub-types behave and respond to treatment differently. Both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas can occur in children and adults, and prognosis and treatment depend on the stage and the type of cancer.. Lymphomas Treatment. The management of lymphoma requires a multidisciplinary team as the efforts of the surgeon, the hematologist, and the radiation oncologist must interact in the management of ...

High grade aggressive lymphomas have high mortality. By their nature, more than 40% of patients die from these diseases even with the improved treatment strategies currently available for oncology patients. The characteristic feature is that they are functionally heterogeneous and therefore have different biological and molecular signatures which make it difficult for all groups to respond to same line of treatment. Based on the above, I set out to look at the impact of viral and cellular gene products on these groups of diseases: In chapter 3 I developed monoclonal antibodies against HERV‐K10. I subsequently investigated their expressions in aggressive lymphomas including Diffuse Large B‐cell lymphoma, Hodgkins lymphoma and Primary CNS lymphomas. I showed HERV‐K10 is expressed in cell lines of aggressive lymphomas, but not in paraffin‐embedded tissues. In chapter 4 I showed that the expression of ATM using immune‐histochemistry techniques in aggressive lymphomas does offer a guide to ...
Lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell in the vertebrate immune system). There are many types of lymphoma. Lymphomas are part of the broad group of diseases called hematological neoplasms. It was discovered by Thomas Hodgkin in 1832 and was called Hodgkins Disease throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Colloquially, lymphoma is broadly categorized as Hodgkins lymphoma or non-Hodgkin lymphoma (all other types of lymphoma). Scientific classification of the types of lymphoma is more detailed. Although older classifications referred to histiocytic lymphomas, these are recognized in newer classifications as of B, T or NK cell lineage. Histiocytic malignancies are rare and are classified as sarcomas.[1] ...
Certain autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions, such as Sjögrens syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), have consistently been associated with an increased risk of malignant lymphomas, but it is unclear whether elevated lymphoma risk is a phenomenon that accompanies inflammatory conditions in general. Likewise, it is debated whether the increased risk identified in association with some disorders pertains equally to all individuals or whether it varies among groups of patients with different phenotypic or treatment-related characteristics. It is similarly unclear to what extent the increased lymphoma occurrence is mediated through specific lymphoma subtypes. This update reviews the many findings on risks, risk levels, and lymphoma characteristics that have been presented recently in relation to a broad range of chronic inflammatory, including autoimmune, conditions. Recent results clearly indicate an association between severity of chronic inflammation and lymphoma risk in RA and ...
OBJECTIVE: Patients with primary Sjögrens syndrome (SS) are at greater risk of developing lymphoma. This study was undertaken to evaluate whether the Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt-3L) might be associated with lymphoma in primary SS. METHODS: Serum levels of Flt-3L were measured in 369 patients with primary SS from the French Assessment of Systemic Signs and Evolution of Sjögrens Syndrome study cohort and in 10 patients with primary SS at the time of lymphoma diagnosis in an Italian cohort. Associations between increased levels of Flt-3L and a history of lymphoma, history of previously diagnosed criteria related to a high risk of lymphoma, and greater extent of disease activity were evaluated. RESULTS: Among patients with primary SS, higher levels of Flt-3L were significantly associated with a history of lymphoma (P = 0.0001). Previous markers for risk of lymphoma development, such as presence of purpura, low levels of C4, presence of lymphocytopenia, low levels of IgM, high levels of β2

Malignant lymphomas are a diverse group of cancers derived from the immune system, which result from neoplastic proliferation of B or T lymphocytes. These tumors may arise anywhere in the physique, most commonly inside lymph nodes but occasionally in other organs in which lymphoid components reside. 1 subtype of lymphomas that are composed of mixtures of cellular kinds having a unique biology is called Hodgkins lymphomas, whereas all other kinds of lymphomas are referred to as non-Hodgkins lymphomas.. Several elements are associated with the improvement of non-Hodgkins lymphoma. These consist of congenital or acquired immunodeficiency states for example AIDS or iatrogenic immunosuppression utilized in organ transplantation. Viruses are related to the pathogenesis of some types. For instance, most instances of Burkitts lymphoma that happen in Africa (endemic kind) are associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), whereas Burkitts lymphoma manifesting in temperate zones is associated with EBV in ...

Immune serums prepared in rabbits with antigens made from normal mouse organs and tissues that were presumably devoid of large numbers of lymphocytic cells (notably kidney, liver, brain, whole embryos, and erythrocytes) proved lethal for the cells of several transplanted mouse lymphomas in vitro in the presence of complement; but these immune serums, when given intraperitoneally in large amounts to susceptible mice that had been implanted subcutaneously with lymphoma cells of one or another of several types, failed entirely to inhibit growth of the lymphoma cells in vivo. In contrast, immune serums made with cells procured from transplanted mouse lymphomas as antigens, and those made with cells from normal mouse thymus or lymph nodes, acted even more powerfully upon the several types of lymphoma cells in vitro than did the immune serums prepared with normal mouse organs, and when given intraperitoneally to implanted mice they brought about death of the lymphoma cells in vivo, the effect being to ...
Low-grade lymphomas are typically made up of small, slow-growing cells. Faster-growing (high-grade) cells can develop. As the proportion of larger, faster-growing lymphoma cells increases, the lymphoma begins to behave more like a faster-growing high-grade lymphoma. This process is known as transformation.. Transformation is important because you need a different type of treatment if your lymphoma becomes faster growing..

Hodgkins disease was the primary lymphoma to be defined as early as 1832 by Prof. Hodgkins. Over the years, non-Hodgkins lymphoma has become quite common. In the United States, it is estimated that 69,000 new cases and 19,000 deaths from non-Hodgkins lymphoma will occur yearly. It has not been pursued in detail as of now, and there are many points still in the dark.. Many doctors adopt a waiting policy where they inspect the patient patiently before coming to a practical conclusion. It is diagnosed (Understanding a Lymphoma Diagnosis) by biopsy through needle insertion. In severe manifestations, the whole part containing affected lymph nodes needs to be taken out. A combination treats it of radiation and chemotherapy. The logic is to retain the white blood cells to grow and multiply. Since it is an immune system-specific disease, immunotherapy or boosting the immune system is deemed the best antidote.. Stem cell transplant that has its precepts on DNA strands is also quite active but highly ...
OBJECTIVE: To describe cases of lymphoma associated with anti-TNF therapy, identify risk factors, estimate the incidence and compare the risks for different anti-TNF agents. METHODS: A national prospective registry was designed (Research Axed on Tolerance of bIOtherapies; RATIO) to collect all cases of lymphoma in French patients receiving anti-TNF therapy from 2004 to 2006, whatever the indication. A case-control analysis was conducted including two controls treated with anti-TNF per case and an incidence study of lymphoma with the French population was used as the reference. RESULTS: 38 cases of lymphoma, 31 non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) (26 B cell and five T cell), five Hodgkins lymphoma (HL) and two Hodgkins-like lymphoma were collected. Epstein-Barr virus was detected in both of two Hodgkins-like lymphoma, three of five HL and one NHL. Patients receiving adalimumab or infliximab had a higher risk than those treated with etanercept: standardised incidence ratio (SIR) 4.1 (2.3-7.1) and 3.6 (2.3-5.6

What is lymphoma?. Lymphoma is a cancer of the cells of the immune system called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are present throughout the body, so dogs can develop lymphoma in multiple organs. Lymphoma most often affects lymph nodes, but can also affect the liver, spleen, bone marrow, and other sites.. Lymphoma is typically diagnosed using aspirates collected from enlarged lymph nodes. In some cases, diagnosis may require sampling of bone marrow or other organs, tissue biopsy, or molecular testing (flow cytometry, PARR). Once a diagnosis is made, staging tests are recommended to assess the extent of disease. Complete staging includes blood and urine testing, non-invasive imaging (chest X-rays, abdominal ultrasound), and additional aspirates. This evaluation provides prognostic information, a baseline for monitoring, and information regarding organ function and involvement. Results may influence treatment recommendations or help anticipate potential complications.. Lymphoma is categorized into five ...
Background Several studies have suggested an association between occupational exposure to solvents and lymphoma risk. However, findings are inconsistent and the role of specific chemicals is not known.. Objective To investigate the role of occupational exposure to organic solvents in the aetiology of B-cell non-Hodgkins lymphoma (B-NHL) and its major subtypes, as well as Hodgkins lymphoma and T-cell lymphoma.. Methods 2348 lymphoma cases and 2462 controls participated in a case-control study in six European countries. A subset of cases were reviewed by a panel of pathologists to ensure diagnostic consistency. Exposure to solvents was assessed by industrial hygienists and occupational experts based on a detailed occupational questionnaire.. Results Risk of follicular lymphoma significantly increased with three independent metrics of exposure to benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) (combined p=4×10−7) and to styrene (p=1×10−5), and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) risk increased with ...
Introduction:. Lymphoma of the stomach is an uncommon tumor. However, it is the most common extra-nodal manifestation of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Over the last few decades, preferred treatment for gastric lymphoma has shifted from surgical resection to non-surgical methods involving chemotherapy and RT. The current standard treatment is chemo-immunotherapy. The role of RT and surgery, if any, is unclear.. Methods:. We reviewed data which was obtained from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) data registry for patients with gastric lymphoma from 1973 until 2011. The data was analyzed using Microsoft Excel and statistical analysis was performed using SPSS statistical software. The SEER registry does not provide information about chemotherapy (CT) administered.. Results:. We analyzed 13,659 patients with the diagnosis of gastric lymphoma in the SEER database. The three most prevalent subtypes were diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) with 6,134 (44.9%) cases, extranodal marginal zone ...
The Gray-Zone Lymphomas represent histological entities that are interposed between Hodgkins lymphoma and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. We report the case of a man diagnosed with a Lymphoma B unclassifiable with intermediate characteristics between Hodgkins lymphoma and a large cell lymphoma B, with a rare spinal localization. We decided to treat him with Adriamycin, Bleomycin, Vinblastine, Dacarbazine and anti-CD20 antibody, achieving a complete response. We here discuss histopathologic patterns, and work-up of this pathological entity, and we demonstrated that more intensive therapy do not always correlate with better therapeutic goals, inviting to analyze each case.. ...

Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system. Generally, lymphoma cells grow in lymph glands (nodes). This causes the glands to get bigger or swell. There are two types of lymphoma. One is called Hodgkin and the other is non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The difference between the two types depends on the appearance of the lymphoma cells under the microscope. Most lymphomas are non-Hodgkin lymphomas. ...
Note: its common for lymphomas to show up (present) in the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic organs. The bone marrow is a nursery for blood cells. Thus, the existence of lymphoma cells in the marrow is generally expected, but often reversible.. Some types of lymphoma first present in the skin (Cutaneous), the stomach (Gastric), the lung (Pulmonary), bone (Osteo), eye (Orbital) and other regions. Gastric MALT, a marginal zone lymphoma, tends to stay localized in the gastric mucosal tissue, but it can spread to other areas. That said, scientists and radiologists may use the term metastasis or metastatic behavior when describing changes in the location of lymphomas (as shown in the abstracts below).. The important question seems to be: does the metastatic behavior of a lymphoma have the same clinical connotation as for solid cancers? Fortunately, the answer is often that the spread to a new location does not necessarily predict sensitivity of the lymphoma cells to treatment or the potential for a ...

Central nervous system lymphoma is a rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma in which malignant (cancer) cells from lymph tissue form in the brain and/or spinal cord (primary CNS) or spread from other parts of the body to the brain and/or spinal cord (secondary CNS). Because the eye is so close to the brain, primary CNS lymphoma can also start in the eye (called ocular lymphoma). The cancer can also involve the spinal fluid that bathes the spinal cord and brain. This is called leptomeningeal lymphoma. See Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma for signs, symptoms and treatments.. ...

The overall incidence of PCNSL is rising, particularly in the elderly population. Immunosuppression is a strong risk factor, but most patients with this tumor are apparently immunocompetent. Diagnosis of PCNSL can be challenging. Non-invasive or minimally invasive tests such as ophthalmological evaluation and spinal fluid analysis may be useful, but the majority of patients require tumor biopsy for definitive diagnosis. Our knowledge concerning optimum treatment of PCNSL is fragmentary due to paucity of adequately sized trials. Most patients are now initially treated with high-dose-methotrexate-based chemotherapy alone, as the ...
Primary central nervous system lymphoma(PCNSL) is a rare kind of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Rituximab combined with high-dose methotrexate, cytarabine and dexamethasone (R-MAD regimen) were reported effective for PCNSL patients. Rituximab can cause several side effects, including fever, chills and rigors. In this case report, we demonstrate rituximab-induced interstitial pneumonitis in a PCNSL patient who has been treated with R-MAD regimen. The patient recovered after treatment and she remains complete remission after following consolidation chemotherapy. Here is no report of potential fatal complications of Rituximab like interstitial pneumonitis nowadays in PCNSL patients. As Rituximab is widely used, physicians should raise their awareness of this rare complication and detect RTX-ILD in early stage.
The initial intent of this study was to examine the origins of Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma (PCNSL), a neoplasm whose oncogenesisin immunocompetentpatients is incompletely understood. With growing information regarding the remarkable plasticity of neural stem cells, and establishment of relationships between hematopoietic and neural stem cells, we hypothesized that PCNSL arises from neural stem/progenitor cells rather than lymphocyte precursors from elsewhere in the body. Markers of neural stem cells were chosen for immunohistochemical(IHC) staining of 5 PCNSL cases and all cases contained Sox2 positive cells, whereas 8 of 9 non-CNS B cell lymphomas so stained had no positive cells. Double-staining with Sox2 and CD20, a B-cell marker, showed no co-localization of Sox2 and CD20, and no CD20-positive tumor cells had Sox2 immunopositivity. Staining of 5 metastatic carcinomas and 1 metastatic melanoma revealed a similar pattern of immunopositivityboth regarding sox2 expression and ...
Paraffin sections of surgical and autopsy material from 24 cases of primary CNS lymphoma were examined for the presence of cytoplasmic immunoglobulin by an immunoperoxidase technique. Definite staining for cytoplasmic immunoglobulin was observed in 13 cases, and in eight of these the pattern of staining was consistent with current concepts of monoclonality. In every case the histological diagnosis of malignant lymphoma was confirmed, and cases were subclassified by both the Lukes-Collins and the Rappaport classifications. Morphologically 12 of the 24 cases resembled immunoblastic sarcoma occurring outside the CNS. Other cases showed features of follicular center cell lymphoma or plasmacytoid lymphocytic lymphoma. Of those cases with positive immunoglobulin staining of tumor cells, the majority showed some plasmacytoid features. It was concluded that the primary CNS lymphomas resemble their counterparts occurring outside the CNS, and that at least a proportion are derived from the B lymphocyte. ...

Each cell in HIV-associated primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) harbors latent EBV. Notably, the triggering of TLR9, a key event in HIV pathogenesis, also promotes EBV latency and transformation. We hypothesized that because only a minority of HIV-infected patients develops PCNSL, their B cells exhibit aberrant signaling responses to TLR9 triggering. We found higher levels of IL-6, CD80, and CD86 expression at baseline in B cells of those patients than in B cells of matched controls, whereas TNF-a expression was lower. Notably, on TLR9 triggering with CpG 2006, CD80 and TNF- were up-regulated to a lesser extent in B cells of the former than in those of matched controls. The reduced up-regulation of CD80 might be explained by its higher baseline expression resulting in a more blunted response rather than a specific deficit of the signaling response to TLR9 triggering. However, this cannot explain the blunted TNF- response, which warrants further investigation. Finally, since increased ...

Our study, which is the first large scale population based assessment of lymphoma characteristics in coeliac disease, has demonstrated that the association between coeliac disease and malignant lymphomas is not confined to ETTL but includes other types of T cell NHLs and, more importantly, B cell NHLs that constitute the vast majority of malignant lymphomas in the general population. Indeed, ETTL cases comprised only one third of NHL cases and half of all T cell lymphomas in our study, values markedly lower than previously reported.4-8,24 Furthermore, with respect to location, our study indicated that the association was not confined to primary gastrointestinal lymphomas but also included malignant lymphomas outside of the gastrointestinal tract of both the B and T cell phenotype. Few previous studies have classified coeliac disease associated malignant lymphomas using modern immunostaining methods.7,8,11 In one of these, 23 of 24 reviewed cases were ETTL.8 In another, 11 of 13 lymphomas were of ...
The cell of origin of lymphomas arising in the CNS, a site devoid of normal resident lymphoid tissue, has not been determined. Morphological (4) , immunophenotypic (4) , and molecular genetic (5) studies of PCNSL suggest that the cell of origin is related to the GC. Expression of BCL-6 is one feature that suggests a relationship to the GC. The BCL-6 protein is a zinc-finger transcriptional repressor encoded by the BCL-6 gene (12) . It is required for the formation of the GC (13) . In normal lymphoid tissue, there is nuclear expression of the BCL-6 protein almost exclusively by GC B cells. Lymphomas thought to be derived from GC cells, such as follicular lymphoma, also express BCL-6, whereas lymphomas derived from naïve (chronic lymphocytic leukemia and mantle cell lymphoma) or post-GC (marginal zone lymphomas, myeloma) B cells do not (14 , 15) ..

In non-Hodgkins lymphoma, tumors develop from lymphocytes - a type of white blood cell.. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is more common than the other general type of lymphoma - Hodgkins lymphoma. Many different sub-types of non-Hodgkins lymphoma exist. The most common non-Hodgkins lymphoma sub-types include diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and follicular lymphoma.. ...
AIDS-related lymphoma describes lymphomas occurring in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). A lymphoma is a type of cancer arising from lymphoid cells. In AIDS, the incidences of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, primary cerebral lymphoma and Hodgkins disease are all increased. There are three different varieties of AIDS-related lymphoma: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, B-cell immunoblastic lymphoma, and Burkitts lymphoma (small non-cleaved cell lymphoma). The symptoms of AIDS-related lymphoma can include: weight loss, fever, and night sweats. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) is present in about 1%-3% of HIV seropositive people at the time of the initial diagnosis of HIV. However, it is believed that such patients have been seropositive for a prolonged period, but have simply not had their infections recognized previously. This is so because immunodysregulation must exist for an extended interval of time, in order for a lymphoproliferative process to evolve in that context. Primary ...
Both Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma are lymphomas - a type of cancer that begins in a subset of white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are an integral part of your immune system, which protects you from germs.. The main difference between Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma is in the specific lymphocyte each involves.. A doctor can tell the difference between Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma by examining the cancer cells under a microscope. If in examining the cells, the doctor detects the presence of a specific type of abnormal cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell, the lymphoma is classified as Hodgkins. If the Reed-Sternberg cell is not present, the lymphoma is classified as non-Hodgkins.. Many subtypes of lymphoma exist, and your doctor will use laboratory tests to examine a sample of your lymphoma cells to determine your specific subtype. Expect to wait a few days to receive results from these specialized tests.. Your type of lymphoma helps ...
Follicular lymphoma is the most common form of low-grade NHL and the second most common type of lymphoma overall diagnosed in the United States. Most follicular lymphoma diagnoses occur in adults over the age of 60, with equal rates of occurrence in male and female individuals; this specific lymphoma is rare in young people.. Follicular lymphoma affects B-cell lymphocytes and is indolent, which means it grows very slowly. Like most lymphomas, follicular lymphoma usually begins in the lymph nodes. The cells can spread into the blood and bone marrow. Other internal organs, including the liver and spleen, may also be affected.. Because follicular lymphoma grows so slowly, doctors may not treat it right away and instead adopt a watchful waiting approach. Over time, some follicular lymphomas transform into an aggressive (fast-growing) diffuse B-cell type of lymphoma, so its important for people with follicular lymphoma to be monitored closely. Learn more about the several treatment options that ...
Looking for online definition of histiocytic lymphoma in the Medical Dictionary? histiocytic lymphoma explanation free. What is histiocytic lymphoma? Meaning of histiocytic lymphoma medical term. What does histiocytic lymphoma mean?
Response:. Our group published a microarray study of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) in Blood in March 2008.1 We reported a comprehensive CNS signature of PCNSL, identifying single-gene differential expression as well as a pathway signature. Most notably, our pathway signature for PCNSL is characterized by differential expression of extracellular matrix (ECM)- and adhesion-related pathways. The most up-regulated gene is the ECM- and adhesion-related osteopontin (SPP1). Our study is unique in that we compared PCNSL to a broad spectrum of non-CNS diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), consisting of nodal and extranodal samples; and in-depth bioinformatics analysis was performed. This is in contrast to 2 other microarray studies in PCNSL2,3 in which the comparisons were made to nodal DLBCL and no pathway analysis was performed.. We are pleased that Rubenstein et al have confirmed our single-gene expression findings by retrospective analysis of their data and come up with concordant ...
Lymphomas account for 5% of all cancers in the United States, with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma being far more prevalent than Hodgkins lymphoma. It is estimated that in 2012, 70,130 will be diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma and 9,060 will be diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma. Further, it is estimated that 18,940 people will die from Non-Hodgkins lymphoma and 1,190 people will die from Hodgkins lymphoma this year. One out of every 47 people will be diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma and one out of every 436 people will be diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma in their lifetimes. In the US, we spend approximately $10.2 billion annually treating lymphoma.. NCI allocated 2.7% of its annual budget (or $137.0 million) in 2010 for lymphoma research.. The information in this section was also provided to the public courtesy of the NCI. You can find more information about lymphoma in their What You Need to Know About Hodgkins Lymphoma and What You Need to Know About Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma booklets, here and ...
The B-cell lymphomas are types of lymphoma affecting B cells. Lymphomas are blood cancers in the lymph nodes. They develop more frequently in older adults and in immunocompromised individuals. B-cell lymphomas include both Hodgkins lymphomas and most non-Hodgkin lymphomas. They are typically divided into low and high grade, typically corresponding to indolent (slow-growing) lymphomas and aggressive lymphomas, respectively. As a generalisation, indolent lymphomas respond to treatment and are kept under control (in remission) with long-term survival of many years, but are not cured. Aggressive lymphomas usually require intensive treatments, with some having a good prospect for a permanent cure. Prognosis and treatment depends on the specific type of lymphoma as well as the stage and grade. Treatment includes radiation and chemotherapy. Early-stage indolent B-cell lymphomas can often be treated with radiation alone, with long-term non-recurrence. Early-stage aggressive disease is treated with ...

What is Burkitt Lymphoma?. Burkitt lymphoma is a form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma which is a type of cancer that starts in the b-cells. Burkitt lymphoma is one of the fastest growing tumors. Burkitt lymphoma attacks the immune system and is fatal if not treated in a timely manner. There are three types of Burkitts lymphoma endemic, sporadic, and immunodeficiency- associated.. What causes Burkitt lymphoma? Who is affected?. The exact cause of Burkitt lymphoma is unknown, but there are factors associated with the disease such as Epstein-Barr. Individuals who are immunosuppressed have a higher risk factor for Burkitt lymphoma. Burkitt lymphoma primarily affects African children, and malaria may make children more vulnerable.. What are the symptoms of Burkitt lymphoma?. There are many symptoms associated with Burkitt lymphoma, including:. ...
Treatment for primary CNS lymphoma includes chemotherapy and often radiation therapy. Steroid therapy (e.g. dexamethasone) is often given before chemotherapy, as this helps reduce the swelling around the tumour, and may even shrink the tumour, reducing the raised intracranial pressure. Chemotherapy is given into a vein, and often also into the fluid surrounding the brain (intrathecally). Methotrexate is the drug most commonly given this way, and is also given in high doses intravenously- either on its own or in combination with other chemotherapy drugs and/or steroids. Radiotherapy uses high-energy rays to destroy the cancerous cells and can be an effective treatment for primary CNS lymphoma in younger people. It is used in combination with chemotherapy and steroid treatment. Surgery is only used to provide diagnostic tissue, and is never curative alone. Anticonvulsants may be given if seizures occur as a result of a tumour. If treatment is insufficient or if the disease recurs, some people are ...
The proportion of black or Hispanic patients with HIV-associated NHL increased from 41% in 2004 to 55% in 2012 (P < .0001). Chemotherapy was received by 81% of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, 90% of those with Burkitt lymphoma, 61% of those with primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), and 35% of those with primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSL). Between 2004 and 2012, this proportion increased only for patients with PCNSL (P < .00001). Chemotherapy was less likely to be received by patients who were older, black, or without private insurance. It was delivered more frequently in hospitals designated as academic (OR for nonreceipt, 0.68; 95% CI, 0.51-0.92) or in hospitals that had ≥3 HIV-positive cases per year (OR, 0.71; 95% CI, 0.58-0.86). Survival improved in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (P = .007), Burkitt lymphoma (P = .0002), and PCNSL (P = .019), but not in those with PEL (P = .94). Receipt of chemotherapy in patients with PEL was not associated with better ...
Lymphoma is the most common haematopoietic malignancy in dogs, and is the most responsive to chemotherapy. Affected dogs are typically middle-aged. Neither gender nor neutering is a predisposing factor for developing lymphoma. In studies of canine lymphoma epidemiology; boxers, Scottish terriers, German shepherds and poodles were more often affected, and recent evidence suggests a high incidence in golden retrievers. The most common physical finding in dogs with lymphoma is peripheral lymphadenopathy, which is usually generalized but may be localized to a single lymph node or a region of the body. Involvement of other organs, such as spleen, liver, or bone marrow is an indication of advanced disease. Involvement of other (extranodal) sites is rare in dogs. Untreated lymphoma progresses rapidly (1-2 months) from presentation to terminal stages. With chemotherapy, however, considerable improvement in the duration and quality of the patients life can be expected.. Staging and Diagnosis. Lymphoma ...

Double-hit lymphomas and double-expressor lymphomas are some of the most difficult non-Hodgkin lymphomas to treat. Patients with these types of lymphomas, which are subtypes of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, dont respond as well to chemotherapy treatment as other lymphoma patients do.. An estimated 22,000 patients nationwide are diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma each year. About 5 to 10 percent have double-hit lymphoma (or cancer cells that contain chromosomal rearrangements of the MYC, BCL2 and/or BCL6 genes) and about 20 to 30 percent have double-expressor lymphoma (containing the MYC and BCL2 genes).. Which is why Alex F. Herrera, M.D., an assistant professor in City of Hopes Department of Hematology and Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation, and a team of doctors at City of Hope and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute examined how well patients whose double-hit and/or double-expressor lymphoma had recurred, or was resistant to initial treatment, fared after they had received high-dose ...

This information is about non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer that starts in the immune system. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is also called NHL.. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma begins when a lymphocyte (usually a B cell) becomes abnormal. The abnormal cell divides to make copies of itself. The new cells divide again and again, making more and more abnormal cells. The abnormal cells dont die when they should. They dont protect the body from infections or other diseases. The buildup of extra cells often forms a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor.. Because lymphatic tissue is in many parts of the body, Hodgkin lymphoma can start almost anywhere. Usually, its first found in a lymph node.. When lymphoma is found, the pathologist reports the type. There are many types of lymphoma. The most common types are diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and follicular lymphoma.. Lymphomas may be grouped by how quickly they are likely to grow:. ...
Overview. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is the seventh most common cancer in men and women in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, 74000 new cases of non-Hodgkins lymphoma are diagnosed each year in the US. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma originates in the lymphatic system of the body. The lymphatic system fights diseases throughout the body. In non-Hodgkins lymphoma, tumors develop from white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymph tissue is found in many places throughout the body, so lymphomas can start almost anywhere. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is more common than the other type of general lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma. The major sites of lymph tissue are:. ...
Natural killer T (NKT) cells are a unique subset of CD1d-restricted T lymphocytes that express characteristics of both T cells and natural killer cells. NKT cells mediate tumor immune-surveillance; however, NKT cells are numerically reduced and functionally impaired in lymphoma patients. Many hematologic malignancies express CD1d molecules and co-stimulatory proteins needed to induce anti-tumor immunity by NKT cells, yet most tumors are poorly immunogenic. In this study, we sought to investigate NKT cell responses to B cell lymphoma. In the presence of exogenous antigen, both mouse and human NKT cell lines produce cytokines following stimulation by B cell lymphoma lines. NKT cell populations were examined ex vivo in mouse models of spontaneous B cell lymphoma, and it was found that during early stages, NKT cell responses were enhanced in lymphoma-bearing animals compared to disease-free animals. In contrast, in lymphoma-bearing animals with splenomegaly and lymphadenopathy, NKT cells were functionally
This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows:. The main objective of this Cochrane review is to evaluate the role of additional chemotherapy to HD-MTX in the treatment of immunocompetent PCNSL patients with respect to overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), response rate, adverse events (AE), treatment-related mortality (TRM) and quality of life (QoL). ...

The NCLs present with progressive loss of visual function and neurodevelopmental decline, seizure, myoclonic jerks and premature death. The CTSD gene is one of the identified eight genes the deficiency of which is responsible for NCLs.[10] It has been reported that a homozygous single nucleotide duplication in exon 6 could alter the reading frame and causes a premature stop codon at position 255. Over-expression of cathepsin D stimulates tumorigenicity and metastasis as well as initiation of tumor apoptosis. This protease has been regarded an independent marker of poor prognosis in breast cancer being correlated with the incidence of clinical metastasis.[21][22] Knock-out of CTSD gene would cause intestinal necrosis and hemorrhage and increase apoptosis in thymus, indicating that cathepsin D is required in certain epithelial cells for tissue remodeling and renewal.[9] It is also reported that there might be a strong effect for CTSD genotype on Alzheimer disease risk in male.[23] Cathepsin D ...

... was first described in 1976,[16] first purified in 1977,[17] the gene was cloned in 1989,[6] and the first knockout mouse was created in 1996.[18] The function of desmin has been deduced through studies in knockout mice. Desmin is one of the earliest protein markers for muscle tissue in embryogenesis as it is detected in the somites.[12] Although it is present early in the development of muscle cells, it is only expressed at low levels, and increases as the cell nears terminal differentiation. A similar protein, vimentin, is present in higher amounts during embryogenesis while desmin is present in higher amounts after differentiation. This suggests that there may be some interaction between the two in determining muscle cell differentiation. However desmin knockout mice develop normally and only experience defects later in life.[13] Since desmin is expressed at a low level during differentiation another protein may be able to compensate for desmin's function early in development but not ...
