Absence of cyclin-D2 and Bcl-2 expression within the germinal centre type of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma identifies a very good prognostic subgroup of patients.
AIMS: To validate and improve the existing algorithm (proposed by Hans et al.) to classify diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). METHODS AND RESULTS: Tissue microarrays constructed from 81 patients with DLBCL were studied by immunohistochemistry for expression of CD10, Bcl-6, MUM1, Bcl-2, cyclin-D2, FOXP1 and PKC-gamma proteins. Cases were classified as either germinal centre B-like (GCB) or non-GC according to Hans et al. An alternative classification was also employed, in which cases posi...Expand abstract
