abstract

  • The clinical characteristics of patients with EBV(+) versus EBV(-) DLBCL are similar and EBV infection does not predict a worse outcome. EBV(+) DLBCL, however, has a unique genetic signature. CD30 expression is more common in EBV(+) DLBCL and, consistent CD30 and EBV is associated with an adverse outcome. Clin Cancer Res; 20(9); 2338-49. ©2014 AACR.
