Webinar: Lymphomas and Leukemias


 

 Abstract

Leukemia and lymphoma are hematologic neoplasms that affect members of all age groups. Each year, over 140,000 people in the US are diagnosed with a hematologic malignancy of some kind. With constant advancement of treatment options, the importance of accurate diagnosis and detection of lymphomas and leukemias becomes more and more relevant to the survival of the patient, and immunohistochemistry has served as a key auxiliary test in determining these diagnoses. This presentation covers many of the basic science, facts, and statistics of hematologic malignancies, as well as the utility of immunohistochemical testing with markers such as CD20, PAX-5, CD61, CD71, Cyclin D1, and SOX-11 in the accurate diagnosis and survival rates of lymphoma and leukemia.
