To assess the prognostic value of DNA ploidy patterns, the DNA ploidy patterns of 37 primary gastrointestinal lymphomas were determined by DNA flow cytometry, using paraffin-embedded archival specimens. The DNA ploidy patterns were diploid in 21 tumors and nondiploid in 16 tumors. Advanced clinical stage, as determined by the Ann Arbor Staging Classification, and nondiploid DNA ploidy patterns were associated with significantly reduced survival of the patients, whereas tumor size, tumor grade… CONTINUE READING
