Mutations in cytosolic isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) or its mitochondrial homolog IDH2 can lead to R(-)-2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG) production. To date, mutations in three active site arginine residues, IDH1 R132, IDH2 R172 and IDH2 R140, have been shown to result in the neomorphic production of 2HG. Here we report on three additional 2HG-producing IDH1(More)
Salvage therapy for patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) remains a challenge. The clinical course is characterised by increasing resistance to conventional chemotherapy and a dismal long-term outcome. On the basis of studies demonstrating synergy in vitro, eight heavily pretreated patients (median age 65 years) with advanced stage MCL were individually(More)
BCL2 suppresses apoptosis by binding the BH3 domain of proapoptotic factors and thereby regulating outer mitochondrial membrane permeabilization. Many tumor types, including B-cell lymphomas and chronic lymphocytic leukemia, are dependent on BCL2 for survival but become resistant to apoptosis after treatment. Here, we identified a direct interaction between(More)
Traditionally, anti-platelet autoantibodies accelerating platelet clearance from the peripheral circulation have been recognized as the primary pathopysiological mechanism in chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Recently, increasing evidence supports the co-existence of insufficient megakaryopoiesis. Inadequate low thrombopoietin (TPO) levels are(More)
BACKGROUND Follicular lymphoma is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disease, but the prognostic value of somatic mutations has not been systematically assessed. We aimed to improve risk stratification of patients receiving first-line immunochemotherapy by integrating gene mutations into a prognostic model. METHODS We did DNA deep sequencing to(More)
The genetics of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) are very poorly understood. We defined the mutational landscape of AITL across 219 genes in 85 cases from the United States and Europe. We identified ≥2 mutations in 34 genes, nearly all of which were not previously implicated in AITL. These included loss-of-function mutations in TP53 (n = 4), ETV6(More)
Enzymatic inhibitors of Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) are in clinical development for the treatment of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) with rearrangements of the cytokine receptor subunit cytokine receptor-like factor 2 (CRLF2), and other tumors with constitutive JAK2 signaling. In this study, we identify G935R,(More)
Mantle cell lymphoma is a rare yet well defined subtype of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The correct histological diagnosis of this lymphoma subtype is of the utmost importance; however, it is also a very difficult diagnosis. Clinical management is often complex, and despite the successful introduction of monoclonal antibodies and dose-intensified(More)
After decades of stagnation, the prognosis of patients with follicular lymphomas (FL) has changed substantially within the last few years due to new and effective therapeutic modalities. These include myeloablative therapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in younger patients in first remission, which showed a significant prolongation(More)
Fixed, paraffin-embedded (FPE) tissues are a potentially rich resource for studying the role of NOTCH1 in cancer and other pathologies, but tests that reliably detect activated NOTCH1 (NICD1) in FPE samples have been lacking. Here, we bridge this gap by developing an immunohistochemical (IHC) stain that detects a neoepitope created by the proteolytic(More)
