O článku:

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) consists of at least two biologically and pathogenetically different subtypes, the germinal centre B-cell (GCB) and the activated B cell type (ABC). It has been suggested that immunohistochemistry can discriminate these subtypes as well. The aim of this study was to verify the validity of the most commonly used Hans algorithm in patients with DLBCL treated with anthracycline- based chemotherapy with rituximab. Immunohistochemical staining using standard protocols was performed on formalin fixed paraffin-embedded tissues. CD20, CD5, CD23, BCL2, CD10, BCL6, MUM1 and Ki67 antibodies were applied. Out of 120 examined cases 52 patients were evaluated as GCB type and 68 patients as having non-GCB, out of a set of 99 patients treated with immunochemotherapy 45 patients with GCB and 54 patients with non-GCB DLBCL were identified. In this set of patients, there was no statistically significant difference neither in overall survival (OS) (HR 1.47 95% CI 0.51-2.63; p=0.45) nor in progression free survival (PFS) (HR 1.57, 95 % CI 0.76-3.22; p=0.731) between both groups.
