Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 Expression by Hodgkin-Reed-Sternberg Cells Is Associated with Reduced Overall Survival in Young Adult Patients with Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma
Plos One. Public Library Science, v. 8, n. 9, 2013.
Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP)Previous studies have investigated the prognostic relevance of MMP9 in classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL), with negative results. However, we have found that MMP9 immunoistochemical expression by Hodgkin-Reed-Sternberg cells is associated with reduced overall survival in a subset of young adult Brazilian patients diagnosed with cHL. Additionally, we have observed that MMP9 expression by neoplastic cells in cHL is associated with EBV positivity. These results may support a rational basis for additional studies on the role of this metalloproteinase as a target for therapy in classical Hodgkin lymphoma.89Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP)Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP)FAPESP [06/02183-1]
