|Title:||Canine lymphomas: a morphological and immunohistochemical study of 55 cases, with observations on p53 immunoexpression|
|Abstract:||The purpose was to determine the immunophenotype of canine lymphomas (CLs) classified according to the WHO nomenclature for domestic animals, and to relate these findings to the immunoexpression of p53 protein. Lymphomas were immunophenotyped with antibodies to CD79a, CD3, and p53 protein, suitable for paraffin wax-embedded tissue sections. Of 55 cases, 40 (72.7%) were of the B-cell phenotype, 12 (21.8%) of the T-cell phenotype, and three (5.4%) were non-B-non-T lymphomas. Of the 40 B-cell lymphomas, 31 were of the large B-cell type, six were lymphoplasmacytic, one lymphocytic, one follicular (grade 11) and one unclassified low-grade. One of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas was morphologically consistent with anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Immunolabelling for p53 occurred in 24, B-cell and seven T-cell lymphomas. Lymphomas with high grade histology showed a significantly increased frequency of p53 positivity (P = 0.01). Positivity for p53 (more than 10% positive cells) tended to be associated with the T-cell phenotype (P = 0.06). Mean patient age was significantly higher in p53-positive cases (P = 0.02). These data are comparable with findings in human lymphomas. (C) 2004 Published by Elsevier Ltd.|
