Phenotypic changes in peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients with chronic lymphoma and B-cell leukemia after treatment



Phenotypic changes in peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients with chronic lymphoma and B-cell leukemia after treatment



Acta Haematologica Polonica 21(2): 192-206



The purpose of the study was evaluation of the effect of treatment on the immunological phenotype of peripheral blood lymphocytes in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or in leukaemic forms of non-Hodgkin lymphomas, with low or medium grade malignancy. The study was carried out in 13 patient. In those responding to treatment a tendency was observed for normalization of the immunological phenotype of peripheral blood lymphocytes (increased proportion of cells forming rosettes with sheep erythrocytes, reduced proportion of cells forming rosettes with murine erythrocytes), and a tendency for polyclonal pattern of B-cells with immunoglobulins on their surface (although this feature was not a rule). In non-responders these tendencies were much less pronounced or absent. Similarly, in non-responders the tendency for polyclonal B-cell pattern may be only apparent, and may be connected with proliferation of a new lymphocyte population with another type of light chain.
