The tumor microenvironment of classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) is clearly responsible for the maintenance of the malignant Hodgkin-Reed-Sternberg (HRS) cells, and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been shown to play a role in this immune evasion. EBV can increase the migration of CD4(+)CD25(+)FOXP3(+) lymphocytes, named regulatory T cells (Tregs). In this study,(More)
BACKGROUND Classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) is a malignant lymphoma that most commonly affects young adults. The lymphomagenesis of cHL depends largely on immune alterations that contribute to proliferation and maintenance of the Hodgkin-Reed-Sternberg (HRS) neoplastic cells. A combination of different immune processes is responsible for the escape of HRS(More)
