Mantle Cell lymphoma (Previous terms centrocytic lymphoma, lymphocyticlymphoma of intermediate differentiation, mantle zone lymphoma 13).
Mantle Cell Lymphoma
(Previous terms: centrocytic lymphoma, lymphocytic lymphoma of
intermediate differentiation, mantle zone lymphoma [1-3]) Introduction: Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare type of lymphoma (5-10% of all malignant lymphomas [1, 2]). The normal cellular counterpart is a B cell found in small numbers in the mantle zone of lymphoid follicles (see diagram below) [1, 4]. MCL was originally classified as a low-grade lymphoma, but recent reports of outcome indicate that most cases behave as an intermediate-grade lymphoma. It has neither the long survival of low-grade tumors nor the response to aggressive chemotherapy of high-grade tumors. One exception is the infrequent "mantle zone" variant, which may have a more indolent course [1, 2]. Clinical features: Histologic changes: This tumor is difficult to diagnose histologically. Furthermore, four types have been described (see figure). Cells are small- to medium-sized lymphocytes with irregularly-shaped nuclei, small nucleoli, and scant cytoplasm. The frequency of each type varies somewhat with the series [2]. Immunologic and molecular features distinguish this lymphoma from others. Cells express the pan-T-cell antigen CD5, surface IgM and IgD, and pan-B-cell antigens CD 19, CD 20, and CD 22. Figure: Each of the circles below illustrates a subtype of MCL.

AIDS-Related Lymphoma
By Mark Bowers Lymphoma is a type of cancer in which the cells of the lymphoid tissue multiply unchecked. Lymphomas are divided into 2 categories: Hodgkin's lymphoma, if a type of cells called Reed-Steinberg cells are present, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The rate of NHL rose steadily among people with AIDS from 1989 to 1995. Research increasingly points to cooperation between or among viruses to produce this kind of cancer. However, clinical research on AIDS-related lymphoma in the brain is sadly lacking.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (previously called lymphosarcoma) is a type of cancer that affects cells found mainly in the lymph nodes and the spleen. Leukemia and lymphoma are the common names for cancer of the white blood cells. Cancer can transform any white blood cell at any stage in the progression from bone marrow stem cells to mature T-cells and B-cells. NHL can arise at any stage of HIV disease. The rate at which people with AIDS develop NHL continued to rise until 1995, when highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART therapy combining more than one class of anti-HIV drugs) began to become widespread. The increased number of people with HIV and NHL apparently was proportional to the extent and duration of suppression of their immune systems.

Lymphoma Program
The University of Nebraska Medical Center is world renowned for the diagnosis, therapy, and research of lymphoma. Lymphomas are malignancies of the lymphatic system. Lymphomas are broadly classified into Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Each year more than 65,000 Americans are diagnosed with lymphomas. Lymphomas are caused by growth of malignant lymphocytes in the lymph nodes and other tissues in the body. Patients with lymphoma who come to UNMC may live locally or may be referred to us from all across the country and other continents. Patients come for consultation, initial diagnosis, standard chemotherapy, participation in clinical research trials, or bone marrow/stem cell transplant (autologous or allogeneic).

Scientists at Bath Cancer Research undertake ex vivo drug sensitivity studies using the Differential Staining Cytotoxicity (DiSC) assay [Ref 10 of Selected Publications ]. With this we assess the cytotoxic drug sensitivity of fresh human cells from patients with leukaemia, lymphoma and cancer. Our greatest expertise is with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), acute myeloid leukaemia (AML or ANLL) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Service
Bath Cancer Research also provides an international service for consultant haematologists/ oncologists, testing cells from their patients for ex vivo drug response to a panel of cytotoxic drugs (up to 35 drugs). A report is sent to the physician to aid choice of optimum therapy. This information helps maximise the likelihood of response (and therefore survival) and reduces the risk of causing patient toxicity with no clinical benefit. Some assays are chargeable New Drug Screening

Treatment of lymphoma in Dogs A Comparison of Three Chemotherapy Protocols. MatusRE. Chemotherapy of lymphoma and leukemia. In Kirk RW, Bonagura JD, eds.
Treatment of Lymphoma in Dogs: A Comparison of Three Chemotherapy Protocols Lymphoma is a common malignancy of dogs, and is the neoplastic disease most commonly treated with chemotherapy in veterinary medicine. A wide variety of single agent and combination chemotherapy protocols have been evaluated for the treatment of lymphoma in dogs. There is, however, no consensus among veterinary oncologists as to whether an "ideal" protocol has yet been developed. Single Agent Therapy Prednisone, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, epirubicin, cytosine arabinoside, and actinomycin-D are among the drugs that have been evaluated as single agents for the treatment of lymphoma in dogs. Of these, doxorubicin seems to be the most effective single agent. The overall response rate (partial and complete response) has been reported to be 81% with median remission and survival times of 131 and 230 days, respectively. Doxorubicin has also been reported to be effective in inducing a second remission in dogs previously treated with combination chemotherapy. Combination Chemotherapy Resistance of cancer cells to chemotherapuetic agents is a major obstacle to the effective treatment of cancer in both veterinary and human medicine. While we have yet to overcome all the problems of drug resistance in the treatment of lymphoma, the use of a combination of chemotherapuetic agents is an important step in addressing this problem. Within a population of cancer cells, the probability of the development of resistant clones is directly related to cell number. At the time of diagnosis, it is probable that the population of lymphoma cells in a canine patient contains several cell lines that are resistant to one or more chemotherapuetic agents. Combination chemotherapy accomplishes three goals that are not possible with single agent therapy: First, because each drug is given at it

Diagnosed with nodular (follicular) and diffuse lymphoma in July 1988, I'm currently well and fully active. For more information please see About me Follicular lymphoma is a confusing disorder...often in the initial stages a benign-like tumor, much different than other forms of cancer, where the person has no symptoms and "watchful waiting" is suggested. On the other hand, the individual may be counseled to try for a cure and be subjected to some of the most potent chemotherapy drugs on the shelf. In the end, no treatment yet devised has proven to be curative. As prominent lymphoma specialist Dr. Alexandra Levine has noted, "Ask 5 hematologists how to treat newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma and, chances are, at least 2 or 3 different and equally viable regimens will be mentioned”.

New Mexico AIDS InfoNet - Revised May 4, 2001
Print this Fact Sheet on a single page using: Microsoft Word Adobe Acrobat
Lymphoma refers to cancers that involve a type of white blood cell. Cells called B-lymphocytes multiply rapidly and form tumors. These can occur in the lymph nodes, bone marrow, intestines, or spinal cord. Lymphoma of the brain or spinal cord is called central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma. The longer you live with a suppressed immune system, the more likely you are to develop NHL. It is serious and fatal, often within a year. NHL is usually associated with long-term HIV disease and low CD4 counts. Combination antiviral therapy has significantly reduced the rates of most opportunistic infections. This is not true for NHL.
The first signs of NHL are swollen lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, and weight loss of more than 10%. These symptoms occur with several AIDS-related illnesses. If doctors cannot find another cause for these symptoms, they will test for NHL. NHL is usually diagnosed based on imaging techniques or biopsies. The imaging techniques can include various scans (CAT, PET, gallium and thallium.) Biopsies involve microscopic examination of cells from lymph nodes or other affected tissues.

The most common symptom is a painless lump under the arms, in the neck or in the groin that persists for several weeks. Other symptoms may include fevers, night sweats, tiredness, weight loss, itching and reddened patches on the skin. Of course, these signs may also point to other, less serious problems. If you should develop any of them you should get a check-up, because only a doctor can tell for sure. Return to the top of the page What is the treatment?
