Interleukin-9 (IL-9) is initially described as a growth factor secreted by helper T cells. It acts on a variety of immune cells via its receptor (IL-9R). Recently, the oncogenic activities of IL-9 and IL-9R were reported in some lymphomas but not diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The purpose of the present study is to investigate the expression of IL-9R in pathological tissues from patients with DLBCL and to evaluate its correlation with clinical characteristics. Tissue samples from… CONTINUE READING
