Immunologic cell markers of peripheral blood and lymph node lymphocytes in chronic lymphocytic leukemia



Immunologic cell markers of peripheral blood and lymph node lymphocytes in chronic lymphocytic leukemia



Leukemia Research 11(9): 789-796



The immunologic phenotype of the lymphocytes of 100 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) was investigated. Peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) were examined in all cases; in 46 patients with lymphadenopathy, a lymph node was biopsied and the histologic and immunologic patterns were assessed; 24 had a lymphocytic-lymphoplasmocytoid histology and 22 the follicular variant of lymphocytic lymphoma (mantle zone lymphoma, MZL). For comparison, lymph node suspensions from 19 patients with non-leukemic centrocytic lymphoma (CCL) were also studied. Significant differences in the PBL immunologic features were found between stage 0 and stage 1 patients. The phenotype of the lymphocytes of patients with lymphocytic histology was similar to that of stage 0 CLL patients, whereas major differences were found between these patients and those with mantle zone histology. This enables these patients to be recognized easily on immunologic grounds.
