REDLAMP 9: Prognostic Factors for Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Plasmablastic Lymphoma

Plasmablastic lymphoma is an aggressive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma commonly associated with HIV infection, and an unfavorable diagnosis. Though it’s also often found in immunocompetent patients. The Journal of Hematology & Oncology recently published a clinicopathologic analysis of patients with plasmablastic lymphoma, and measured their outcomes. In this video, Dr. John Allan explains the results of this study, and offers takeaways for patients with this aggressive lymphoma.
