    Functional analysis of acquired CD28 mutations identified in cutaneous T cell lymphoma.
    Cell Immunol 2017 Jul 10. Epub 2017 Jul 10.
    Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO 63110, USA. Electronic address:
    CD28 is the major costimulatory receptor on T cells regulating proliferation, survival and effector function. Acquired mutations in the extracellular domain of CD28 have been identified in patients with cutaneous T cell lymphoma, angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma and other T cell neoplasms, suggesting it may contribute to disease pathogenesis. We used a heterologous system in which mutant human CD28 was expressed on primary murine T cells deficient in CD28 to ascertain how specific mutations identified in a genetic screen of patients with cutaneous T cell lymphoma affected normal T cell function.

    Mutations in 5-methylcytosine oxidase TET2 and RhoA cooperatively disrupt T cell homeostasis.
    J Clin Invest 2017 Jul 10. Epub 2017 Jul 10.
    Center for Epigenetics and Disease Prevention, Institute of Biosciences and Technology and.
    Angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma (AITL) represents a distinct, aggressive form of peripheral T cell lymphoma with a dismal prognosis. Recent exome sequencing in patients with AITL has revealed the frequent coexistence of somatic mutations in the Rho GTPase RhoA (RhoAG17V) and loss-of-function mutations in the 5-methylcytosine oxidase TET2. Here, we have demonstrated that TET2 loss and RhoAG17V expression in mature murine T cells cooperatively cause abnormal CD4+ T cell proliferation and differentiation by perturbing FoxO1 gene expression, phosphorylation, and subcellular localization, an abnormality that is also detected in human primary AITL tumor samples.

    Detection of the circulating tumor DNAs in angioimmunoblastic T- cell lymphoma.
    Ann Hematol 2017 Jun 20. Epub 2017 Jun 20.
    Department of Hematology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba, 1-1-1 Tennodai, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, 305-8575, Japan.
    Recent genetic studies identified that the disease-specific G17V RHOA mutation, together with mutations in TET2, DNMT3A, and IDH2, is a hallmark of angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphomas (AITL). The diagnostic value of these mutations is now being investigated. Circulating tumor DNAs (ctDNAs) may offer a non-invasive testing for diagnosis and disease monitoring of cancers. Read More

    aDepartment of Dermatology, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.
    Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITCL) is a rare, aggressive lymphoma which derives from follicular helper T cells, commonly affecting the elderly population. It accounts for 2% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas, with a reported 5-year overall survival rate of less than 30%. Very often, the clinical picture of AITCL encompasses systemic symptoms such as generalized lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, skin rash, anemia, and polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia. Read More

    Epstein-Barr Virus-Associated Lymphoproliferative Disorders: Review and Update on 2016 WHO Classification.
    J Pathol Transl Med 2017 Jun 5. Epub 2017 Jun 5.
    Asan Medical Center, Ulsan University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.
    Epstein-Barr virus (human herpesvirus-4) is very common virus that can be detected in more than 95% of the human population. Most people are asymptomatic and live their entire lives in a chronically infected state (IgG positive). However, in some populations, the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been involved in the occurrence of a wide range of B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs), including Burkitt lymphoma, classic Hodgkin's lymphoma, and immune-deficiency associated LPDs (post-transplant and human immunodeficiency virus-associated LPDs).

    Using Murine Models to Investigate Tumor-Lymphoid Interactions: Spotlight on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma.
    Front Oncol 2017 2;7:86. Epub 2017 May 2.
    Department of Biology, University of Nebraska at Omaha, Omaha, NE, USA.
    The role of the tumor microenvironment in leukemias and lymphomas is well established, yet the intricacies of how the malignant cells regulate and influence their non-malignant counterparts remain elusive. For example, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is an expansion of malignant CD5(+)CD19(+) B cells, yet the non-malignant T cells play just as large of a role in disease presentation and etiology. Herein, we review the dynamic tumor cell to lymphoid repertoire interactions found in two non-Hodgkin's lymphoma subtypes: CLL and angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma. Read More

    Hematol Oncol Clin North Am 2017 Apr;31(2):285-295
    Department of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Weill-Cornell Medical College, 1233 York Avenue, New York, NY 10022, USA. Electronic address:
    Peripheral T-cell lymphomas represent 10% to 15% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas and comprise more than 20 different entities. Treatment of very rare T-cell lymphomas can be challenging because there are no large or randomized studies to guide clinical decision making, and treatment paradigms are often based on small series or imperfect data. Although a strict algorithm cannot be written with certainty, through the literature that exists and clinical experience, themes and principles of approaches do emerge that when coupled with clinical judgment allow reasonable and logical decisions.

    TET2 mutations in B cells of patients affected by angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma.
    J Pathol 2017 Jun 3;242(2):129-133. Epub 2017 May 3.
    Institute of Cell Biology (Cancer Research), University of Duisburg-Essen, Medical School, Essen, Germany.
    Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphomas (AITLs) frequently carry mutations in the TET2 and IDH2 genes. TET2 mutations represent early genetic lesions as they had already been detected in haematopoietic precursor cells of AITL patients. We show by analysis of whole-tissue sections and microdissected PD1(+) cells that the frequency of TET2-mutated AITL is presumably even higher than reported (12/13 cases in our collection; 92%).

    Survival outcome of patients with peripheral T-cell lymphoma-not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS) and angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) who experience disease progression/relapse remains very poor. A total of 321 patients, newly diagnosed with PTCL-NOS (n = 180) or AITL (n = 141) between 1999 and 2015, were analysed. Failure-free survival (FFS) and overall survival (OS) were calculated from the time of first disease progression (FFS1, OS1), from second disease progression (FFS2, OS2) and from third progression (FFS3, OS3).

    Peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL), not otherwise specified (NOS) and angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) are the most frequent of more than 20 mature PTCL entities featuring a broad spectrum of morphological, immunophenotypic, molecular and clinical characteristics. Unfortunately, recent progress in understanding the (epi)genetic background of PTCL has not been met with similar advances in treatment. Thus, CHO(E)P [cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (plus etoposide)] remains standard first-line therapy. Read More

    The IDH2 R172K mutation associated with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma produces 2HG in T cells and impacts lymphoid development.

    Oncogenic isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)1 and IDH2 mutations at three hotspot arginine residues cause an enzymatic gain of function that leads to the production and accumulation of the metabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG), which contributes to the development of a number of malignancies. In the hematopoietic system, mutations in IDH1 at arginine (R) 132 and in IDH2 at R140 and R172 are commonly observed in acute myeloid leukemia, and elevated 2HG is observed in cells and serum. However, in angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), mutations are almost exclusively restricted to IDH2 R172, and levels of 2HG have not been comprehensively measured. Read More

    BCL6 locus is hypermethylated in angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma.

    BCL6, a master transcription factor for differentiation of follicular helper T (TFH) cells, is highly expressed in angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) and peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL) containing tumor cells with TFH features. TET2, encoding an epigenetic regulator, is frequently mutated in AITL/PTCL. We previously reported that Tet2 knockdown mice developed T-cell lymphomas with TFH features. Read More

    T cell-rich lymphoid infiltrates with large B cells: a review of key entities and diagnostic approach.

    Accurate diagnostic interpretation of a lymphoid population composed predominantly of small T cells, together with smaller numbers of large B cells, with or without a nodular architecture, is a common problem faced by the histopathologist. The differential diagnosis of this histological pattern is wide, ranging from reactive conditions such as drug reactions and viral infections, through borderline entities such as immunodeficiency-related lymphoproliferative disorders to lymphomas. The latter includes entities where the large B cells are primarily neoplastic (classical and nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphomas and T cell/histiocyte-rich large B cell lymphoma) as well as T cell lymphomas such as angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma where the large B cells represent an epiphenomenon and may or may not be neoplastic.
