  • Purpose of reviewBurkitt's lymphoma is a unique hematological malignancy remarkable for its biological characteristics, including aberrant expression of the MYC oncogene, and its requirement for intensive treatment regimens. This review will focus on those features, and discuss recent advances in the molecular biology and advancing treatment options for the disease. Recent findingsAdvances in molecular biology have provided many new insights into the biology and treatment options for Burkitt's… CONTINUE READING
