B-CELL REARRANGEMENT DETECTION

A reactive, benign B-cell proliferation is characterized by polyclonal expansion of B-cells whereas a malignant process is often characterized by a clonal expansion of a predominant B-cell population. In conjunction with histopathology study of lymph nodes, bone marrow and other tissue types, the detection of a clonal immunoglobulin heavy chain gene rearrangement by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of malignant B-cell lymphoma.
