Research from University of California Provides New Data about ImmunohistochemistryImmunohistochemistryNewsRx.com
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Hematology Week -- Current study results on Immunohistochemistry have been published. According to news reporting out of Los Angeles, California, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Primary lymphomas of the breast are uncommon, and mostly of B-cell type. In the late 1990s, reports began to appear, primarily in the Pathology literature, of an apparently new category of breast lymphoma of T-cell type, having a particular association with silicone breast implants."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of California, "This condition came to be recognized as implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Appearing initially as individual case reports, the pathologic features were somewhat variable and the diagnosis was difficult. This review describes the pathologic and immunohistochemical features of implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma of the breast drawn from a series of 103 cases."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Recommendations are given for the management of removed implants, for the approach to differential diagnosis and the choice of initial immunohistochemical panels."
