ABSTRACT: Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a kind of mature B-cell neoplasms with significantly poor prognosis and is usually misdiagnosed. With the development of flow cytometry and cytogenetic technique, most patients were at leukemic phase when diagnosed. This study was purposed to investigate the immunophenotypes of MCL, the immunophenotype information of 22 leukemic MCL patients was analyzed retrospectively. All the patients were conformed t(11;14) translocation by fluorescence in situ hybridization. Immunophenotypes were detected by a four-color flow cytometry including CD3, CD4, CD5, CD8, CD10, CD19, CD20, CD22, CD23, CD25, CD38, CD103, CD148, CD200, FMC7, ZAP-70, κ, λ. The results showed that CD19, CD5, CD20 and monoclonal sIg expressed in all 22 patients with CD20 high expression; CD22 expressed weakly in 17 patients; CD23 expressed in 6 patients including 2 cases highly expressed; FMC7 expressed in 12 patients. 5 patients were 4-point score and 17 patients had a score less than 4 according to CLL scoring system. CD148 and CD200 were detected in 18 patients, in which CD200 expressed negatively in 11 patients, CD200 expressed weakly in 7 patients with median fluorescence intensity (MFI) 25.8 (6.6 - 254.26); CD148 expressed positively in all 18 patients with median MFI: 337 (73.4 - 1341.9). It is concluded that the atypical immunophenotype is common in leukemia MCL, thereby the diagnosis of MCL needs comprehensively analyze with morphocytology, immunophenotype and cytogenetic, CD200 and CD148 as new bio-markers can differentiate MCL from chronic B cell lymphoproliferative disease.Zhongguo shi yan xue ye xue za zhi / Zhongguo bing li sheng li xue hui = Journal of experimental hematology / Chinese Association of Pathophysiology 03/2013; 21(2):371-6.

ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the nucleophosmin (NPM1) gene exon 12 mutation in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and its clinical characteristics. Genomic DNAs from 33 AML patients were amplified by PCR and sequencing for NPM1 mutations. The results showed that the NPM1 exon 12 mutations were found is 8 patients from 33 AML patients (24.2%) including 1 of M(1), 3 of M(2), 1 of M(4) and 3 of M(5). The NPM1 gene mutations were found in 7 out of 19 patients with normal karyotype and their incidence was significantly higher than that in patients with karyotype abnormalities (1/14, 7.1%, p < 0.005). The proportion of bone marrow blast cells and the count of peripheral white blood cells in patients with NPMI exon 12 mutation were higher than that in patients with wild type NPMI gene. It is concluded that the occurrence of NPM1 exon 12 mutations is observed more in AML patients with normal karyotype. NPM1 mutant cases are associated with more high amount of boon marrow blast cells and peripheral white blood cell count.Zhongguo shi yan xue ye xue za zhi / Zhongguo bing li sheng li xue hui = Journal of experimental hematology / Chinese Association of Pathophysiology 05/2009; 17(2):294-7.
