To evaluate molecular clonality, three slices of 10p FFPE tissue were used for extraction of DNA according to the protocol previously described by Maria et al [13].
However, additional sampling would seem unlikely to alter our basic conclusions, particularly with regard to the level of MLG diversity across the continental range and the extent of clonality within and among localities.
Polymerase chain reaction-based clonality testing in tissue samples with reactive lymphoproliferations: usefulness and pitfalls.
These results underscore the fact that the existence of intratumoral heterogeneity requires that inferences of clonality require that whole genomes of tumors must be sequenced at a much greater depth than that used to identify base-level mutations present in the majority of subclones (Fig.
They cover basic principles of electrophoresis, protein constituents of serum, determining immunoglobulin clonality and quantifying specific serum proteins, monoclonal gammopathies, urine protein electrophoresis, and a clinical approach.
At the end, an open lung biopsy with thoracotomy for interstitial lung disease and thymectomy were performed, and the pathologic diagnosis was as micronoduler type thymoma, surrounded by monoclonal B cell proliferation approved by molecular clonality studies and also amyloid accumulation in the lung, which was shown to be AL type of amyloid by mass spectrometry (Figure 2).
Both the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) identify tiny regions of DNA of interest to establish clonality for confirmation of malignancy in a lymphoid population, or to look for characteristic translocations, deletions and gene amplifications in the DNA which are specific for certain subtypes of lymphomas.
Safety will be determined by clinical and laboratory observation and grading of adverse events, analysis of T cell repertoire clonality, and evaluation of HIV isolates for evidence of vector recombination.
B-cell clonality studies for the presence of clonal IgH or Ig Kappa gene rearrangement would be useful in differentiating it from a plasmacytoma.
