This study evaluates prognostic markers as predictors of clonal evolution (CE) and assesses the impact of CE on overall survival (OS) in a population-based cohort of 159 consecutive eligible patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) obtained from the British Columbia Provincial CLL Database. CE was detected by interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in 34/159 patients (21%) with 65% of CE patients acquiring deletion 17p or 11q. CD38 positive status (≥30%) on flow cytometry predicted 2...

A 60-year-old woman presented with acute eyelid swelling and a subcutaneous hemorrhage in the right eye. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a spherical tumor of the lacrimal gland. The tumor was removed by the Kroenlein method. We diagnosed as a B-cell lymphoma that is unclassifiable, and intermediate between diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and Burkitt lymphoma (BL) (intermediate DLBCL/BL) based on its immunohistopathological examination and c-MYC/IgH rearrangement. We administered six cycles of dose-adjusted-EPOCH-R (etoposide, prednisone, vincristine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride, and rituximab) therapy, and remission of the lymphoma was obtained...

Activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) is a B-cell-specific enzyme that targets immunoglobulin genes to initiate class switch recombination and somatic hypermutation. In addition, through off-target activity, AID has a much broader effect on genomic instability by initiating oncogenic chromosomal translocations and mutations involved in the development and progression of lymphoma. AID expression is tightly regulated in B cells and its overexpression leads to enhanced genomic instability and lymphoma formation...

Composite lymphomas (CLs) are defined as two unrelated lymphomas occurring at the same time within the same tissue. The incidence of these tumors is low. Of all possible combinations between lymphomas, the least frequent are the ones combining peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) and Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). We recently identified five cases of CL composed of PTCL and classical HL, mixed cellularity type. We investigated histological and clinical features of these cases. Immunostaining was performed on paraffin sections...

Composite lymphoma is an extremely rare clinical entity and is characterized by the presence of two different subtypes of lymphoma in the same lymph node. We report a case of composite lymphoma in a 57-year-old male presenting with leg and groin pain. The right inguinal lymph node biopsy showed large and small cells. Immunohistochemistry was consistent with large cells staining for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and small cells positive for mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of immunoglobulin heavy (IGH) chain and immunoglobulin kappa (IGK) light chain gene rearrangements confirmed that the two were clonally unrelated neoplasms...

IgH class switch recombination (CSR) occurs through the deliberate introduction of activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID)-instigated DNA double-strand breaks into the IgH loci. Because double-strand breaks are generally highly toxic, mechanisms that regulate AID expression are of much relevance to CSR and genomic integrity; however, effectors of such regulatory processes are still poorly understood. In this article, we show that the transcription factor sex determining region Y-box 2 (Sox2) is expressed in activated B cells, but almost exclusively in those that have undergone CSR...

A 5-year-old male neutered Bernese Mountain Dog was presented for cutaneous plasmacytoma, which was treated by surgical excision. Four months later, the dog developed multiple skin masses, hyphema, pericardial and mild bicavitary effusions, myocardial masses, and marked plasmacytosis in the peripheral blood. Circulating plasma cells expressed CD34 and MHC class II by flow cytometry. Immunocytochemistry demonstrated that these cells were strongly positive for multiple myeloma oncogene 1/interferon regulatory factor 4 (MUM-1) and weakly to moderately positive for Pax5...

Antibody class-switch DNA recombination (CSR) is initiated by AID-introduced DSBs in the switch (S) regions targeted for recombination, as effected by Ku70/Ku86-mediated NHEJ. Ku-deficient B cells, however, undergo (reduced) CSR through an alternative(A)-NHEJ pathway, which introduces microhomologies in S-S junctions. As microhomology-mediated end-joining requires annealing of single-strand DNA ends, we addressed the contribution of single-strand annealing factors HR Rad52 and translesion DNA polymerase θ to CSR...

Amyloidomas are rare amyloid-containing lesions, which may also occur in the central nervous system. Etiology, pathogenesis and clinical course are poorly understood. To gain more insight into the biology of cerebral amyloidoma, we aimed to characterize its histopathological, molecular and clinical features in a retrospective series of seven patients. FFPE tissue specimens were examined using immunohistochemistry, chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH) for light chains kappa and lambda as well as an IgH gene clonality analysis...

In B lymphocytes, Ig class switch recombination (CSR) is induced by activation-induced cytidine deaminase, which initiates a cascade of events leading to DNA double-strand break formation in switch (S) regions. Resolution of DNA double-strand breaks proceeds through formation of S-S synaptic complexes. S-S synapsis is mediated by a chromatin loop that spans the C region domain of the Igh locus. S-S junctions are joined via a nonhomologous end joining DNA repair process. CSR occurs via an intrachromosomal looping out and deletion mechanism that is 53BP1 dependent...

Blastoid variant (BV) is one of the aggressive variants of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). BV-MCL is defined by its blastic cytomorphology. Previous studies using sequential biopsies in cases with MCL have demonstrated that classical type MCL (C-MCL) often transforms or relapses as an aggressive variant, but a histopathological transition from C-MCL to an aggressive MCL variant in the same pathological specimen has been shown in only a limited number of the cases. We present a case of MCL in which a histological transition between C-MCL and BV-MCL was observed in the same lymph node...

A major challenge for HIV-1 vaccine research is developing a successful immunization approach for inducing broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs). A key shortcoming in meeting this challenge has been the lack of animal models capable of identifying impediments limiting bnAb induction and ranking vaccine strategies for their ability to promote bnAb development. Since 2010, immunoglobulin knockin (KI) technology, involving inserting functional rearranged human variable exons into the mouse IgH and IgL loci has been used to express bnAbs in mice...

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is typically characterized by t(11;14) which places the IGH@ enhancer elements upstream of CCND1. This fusion results in upregulation of CCND1 and consequently its protein product cyclin D1. Recent studies have shown that in MCL, mutations or translocations occurring within the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of the CCND1 gene can result in a truncated mRNA transcript that is more stable and associated with more aggressive disease. We identified a case of MCL showing cyclin D1 overexpression by immunohistochemistry and a t(11;12)(q13;p11...

Manatees are a vulnerable, charismatic sentinel species from the evolutionarily divergent Afrotheria. Manatee health and resistance to infectious disease is of great concern to conservation groups, but little is known about their immune system. To develop manatee-specific tools for monitoring health, we first must have a general knowledge of how the immunoglobulin heavy (IgH) chain locus is organized and transcriptionally expressed. Using the genomic scaffolds of the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris), we characterized the potential IgH segmental diversity and constant region isotypic diversity and performed the first Afrotherian repertoire analysis...

IGH gene rearrangement and IGK-Kde gene deletion can be used as molecular markers for the assessment of B lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). Minimal residual disease detected based on those markers is currently the most reliable prognosis factor in B-ALL. The aim of this study was to use clonal IGH/IGK-Kde gene rearrangements to confirm B-ALL diagnosis and to evaluate the treatment outcome of Tunisian leukemic patients by monitoring the minimal residual disease (MRD) after induction chemotherapy...

Immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) alleles have ambivalent relationships: they feature both allelic exclusion, ensuring monoallelic expression of a single immunoglobulin (Ig) allele, and frequent inter-allelic class-switch recombination (CSR) reassembling genes from both alleles. The IgH locus 3' regulatory region (3'RR) includes several transcriptional cis-enhancers promoting activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID)-dependent somatic hypermutation (SHM) and CSR, and altogether behaves as a strong super-enhancer...

The current mammalian paradigm states that 1) rearrangements in the IgH locus precede those in IgL loci, 2) IgLλ genes rearrange only when IgLκ genes are consumed, and 3) the surrogate L chain is necessary for selection of productive IgH gene rearrangements. We show in swine that IgL rearrangements precede IgH gene rearrangements, resulting in the expression of naked IgL on a surface of precursor B cells. Findings also suggest that there is no dependency on the surrogate L chain, and thus the authentic IgL proteins may be used for selection of the IgH repertoire...

BACKGROUND: Fluorescence in situ hybridization and immunoglobulin (Ig) heavy-chain variable-region (IgHV) mutational status are used to predict outcome in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Although DNA aberrations change over time, IgHV sequences and mutational status are considered stable. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a retrospective review, 409 CLL patients, between 2008 and 2015, had IgHV analysis: 56 patients had multiple analyses performed. Seven patients' IgHV results changed: 2 from unmutated to mutated and 5 from mutated to unmutated IgHV sequence...

The main objectives of the present study were to monitor minimal residual disease (MRD) in the bone marrow of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) to predict clinical relapse and guide preemptive treatment with rituximab. Among the patients enrolled in 2 prospective trials by the Nordic Lymphoma Group, 183 who had completed autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) and in whom an MRD marker had been obtained were included in our analysis. Fresh samples of bone marrow were analyzed for MRD by a combined standard nested and quantitative real-time PCR assay for Bcl-1/immunoglobulin heavy chain gene (IgH) and clonal IgH rearrangements...

Small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL/SLL) and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) usually are distinctly different in regard to clinical presentation, morphology, immunophenotype and molecular/genetic findings. In spite of this, select cases may show overlapping characteristics and represent a diagnostic challenge. Recently LEF1 staining was identified as a fairly characteristic finding in CLL/SLL, with positivity identified in up to 95% of cases. LEF1 staining has not been reported as being present in cases of MCL, making this stain a useful tool in distinguishing these diagnoses...
