Diagnostic value of bone marrow biopsy in patients with lymphoplasmacytic B lymphoma
The article “Diagnostic value of Bone marrow core biopsy patterns in Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma / Waldeström Macroglobulinemia and description of its mutational profiles by targeted NGS” has recently been published in the international Journal of Clinical Pathology (FI 2,346, JCR).
This original manuscript describes the clinical relevance of the evaluation by multiparameter methods (morphology and histopathology, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry and mutational study) of bone marrow biopsy for the accurate diagnosis of patients with lymphoplasmacytic B lymphoma / Waldestrom Macroglobulinemia and its distinction from the precursor phase of the disease called Monoclonal Gammopathy of IgM Uncertain Meaning.
In a novel way, the latest generation technology of directed sequencing of the exome is applied by Next Generation Sequencing to characterize the mutational profile of this lymphoid neoplasm using clinical samples.
The work has been developed in the IDIVAL Translational Hematopathology Laboratory, in collaboration with the HUMV Pathology and Hematology Department, the Valdecilla Biobank and the Center for Genomic Regulation of Barcelona.
