Abstract Mature B- and T-cell lymphomas are diverse in their biology, etiology, genetics, clinical behavior, and response to specific therapies. Here, we review the principles of diagnostic classification for non-Hodgkin lymphomas, summarize the characteristic features of major entities, and place recent biological and molecular findings in the context of principles that are applicable across the spectrum of mature lymphoid cancers.

Cadherins switching is a hallmark of neoplasic processes. The E-cadherin (E-cad) subtype is one of the surface molecules regulating cell-to-cell adhesion. After its cleavage by sheddases, a soluble fragment (sE-cad) is released that has been identified as a pro-carcinogenic inflammatory signal in several bacteria-induced cancers. Recently we reported that Q fever, a disease due to Coxiella burnetii infection, can be complicated by occurrence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Therefore, we studied E-cad switching in Q fever. The sE-cad levels were found increased in the sera of acute and persistent Q fever patients, whereas th...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMantle cell lymphoma is a CD5+ non-Hodgkin lymphoma associated with suboptimal outcome. Young, fit patients are generally offered intensive induction followed by autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (AHCT) in first remission. Some patients may not benefit from this strategy.Recent FindingsRecent studies have investigated the role of AHCT in the modern era. First, an analysis of the National Cancer Database demonstrated improved progression-free survival (PFS) for consolidative AHCT. Second, a multi-center study associated consolidative AHCT with improved PFS even after propensity-weighted ...

Lymphomas are the heterogeneous group of malignant diseases characterized by proliferation of malignant lymphoid cells or their precursors. Lymphomas are the ninth most common cancer worldwide and constitute 3.2% of malignant tumor. Lymphomas are generally classified to two main categories: Hodgkin's lymphomas (HL) and the non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL), and about 90% are NHL. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma represents 4.3% of all new cancer cases in the U.S. and the ninth most common cancer in male patient of Taiwan.

A gardener in Australia has sued Bayer over its Monsanto Roundup weedkiller, the first such lawsuit against the German pharmaceutical giant in that country. Michael Ogalirolo, 54, a self-employed gardener from Melbourne, said he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of leukemia, after using Monsanto’s Roundup for more than 20 years, Reuters reported. “We have great sympathy for any individual with cancer, but the extensive body of scie nce on glyphosate-based herbicides over four…

Targeting IL-6 receptor reduces IgM levels and tumor growth in Waldenström macroglobulinemia. Oncotarget. 2019 May 21;10(36):3400-3407 Authors: Han W, Matissek SJ, Jackson DA, Sklavanitis B, Elsawa SF Abstract The tumor microenvironment (TME) plays an important role in cancer cell biology and is implicated in resistance to therapy. In Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM), a subtype of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the TME modulates WM biology by secreting cytokines that promote the malignant phenotype. In previous work, we have shown that TME-IL-6 promotes WM cell growth and IgM secretion in WM. Tocili...

Conclusion: We report for the first time a case of a patient with Muir-Torre syndrome who developed an orbital recurrent SC with an incidental finding of a lacrimal gland B non-Hodgkin lymphoma consistent with SLL. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of this coexistence of multiple cancer types in patients with sebaceous carcinoma and Muir-Torre syndrome.Ocul Oncol Pathol
