Clonal chromosome abnormalities were found in 89 (97%) of 92 patients with non-Hodgkin's malignant lymphoma including immunologically determined 34 B- and 25 T-lymphomas; only 3 of 19 T-lymphoma patients examined had serum adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma-associated antigen antibody. Association of 8q24 translocations with small non-cleaved cell (P less than 0.01) and that of t(14;18) (q32;q21) with follicular histology (P = 0.03) were significant. Several other abnormalities were also found to… CONTINUE READING
