    Background. Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma was described for the first time in 1983 by Isaacson and Wright. It was classified into extranodal non-Hodkin's lymphomas of B-cell lymphocytes of the marginal zone of reactive lymphe follicles. It is characterized by both hyperplasia...

    The article focuses on anticancer activity in small-molecule inhibitors of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1). It has poor pharmacological properties. It mediates activated B cell like diffuse large B cell lymphomas (ABC-DLBCLs). After several validation...

    Extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT lymphoma) can arise at any anatomic site, but involvement of the kidney is rare. We describe 10 cases of kidney MALT lymphoma, including 6 localized cases. No predisposing inflammatory conditions were identified,...

    Elegant animal models of lymphocyte traffic have uncovered routes of lymphocyte movement between and within tissues. Routes of human lymphocyte migration cannot always be extrapolated from animal studies and investigating this in vivo is particularly challenging. In this commentary, we consider...

    Background: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is frequently associated with B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. We investigated the prevalence of HCV infection in nongastric marginal zone lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) in order to define the relationship between the viral...

    Purpose: The t(11;18)(q21;q21) chromosome translocation is frequent in gastric MALT lymphoma, but the t(11;18)(q21;q21) chromosome translocation is very rare in other sites of MALT lymphomas. We investigated the possibility that MALT lymphoma occurred in the right buccal mucosa of a 66-year-old...
