Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

Malignant lymphomas represent transformations within the lymphoid system. Various subtypes with divergent biology, morphology, clinical presentation, and prognosis can be distinguished. Despite substantial recent progress in the understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of these malignancies, as well as their treatment, still a substantial fraction of affected patients cannot be cured with current therapy. Especially, patients affected by lymphomas that are refractory to conventional immunochemotherapy represent a major clinical problem. Thus, a significantly better understanding of the biology of lymphomagenesis is urgently warranted. This will enable us to incorporate novel molecular targeted therapies into the treatment of affected patients and improve their outcome. This special issue focuses on novel advances in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms leading to lymphoma development, as well as on the development of novel therapeutic regimens to improve prognosis of affected patients.
