Expression and Clinical Significance of CD30 and CD56 in Lymphoblastic Lymphoma: A Retrospective Analysis on Paraffin-Embedded Tissues by Immunohistochemistry.

Background: We evaluated CD30 and CD56 expression in lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) and correlated the results with clinicopathological features and prognosis. Methods: Immunohistochemical (IHC) staining was performed on 85 formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded LBL specimens using two CD30 clones and one CD56 antibody clone. Results: Weak and diffuse expression of CD30 was expressed in 4.7% (clone Ber-H2) or 14.1% (clone EPR4102) in LBL, while CD56 was expressed in 24.7%. CD30 and CD56 expression correlated with lactate dehydrogenase levels. CD56-positive expression was closely associated with an unfavorable prognosis. Although CD30 expression exhibited a trend toward poorer overall survival, it did not reach statistical significance. Conclusion: CD56 is a potential negative prognostic marker. These findings suggest that CD30 and CD56 targeted therapies could be potential therapeutic targets for LBL patients.
