Understanding the intrinsic biology of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma: recent advances and future prospects.

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of lymphoid tumor, and accounts for approximately 30-40% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Although the prognosis has significantly improved with the advent of rituximab combination chemotherapy in the early 2000s, recurrence still occurs in about 40% of cases. Even though chemotherapy with increased dose-intensity is used in recurrent cases, the prognosis of such patients remains poor. Thus, the development of personalized medicine, including molecular-targeted drugs, is required to improve the prognosis of DLBCL patients, and further understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of DLBCL is essential for this purpose. With recent advances in genetic analysis technology, unknown genetic abnormalities and gene expression patterns have been discovered, and based on these discoveries, progress is being made in elucidating and subdividing molecular pathologies. This article summarizes recent findings regarding molecular pathogenesis in DLBCL using transcriptome and genomics technologies, and outlines the path to personalized medicine.
