Mayo Clinic Research Team Completes Genome-Wide Analysis of Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma


A  genome-wide sequence of peripheral T-cell lymphomas has been completed by researchers at Mayo Clinic. Scientists elsewhere have done the same with other cancers, but Mayo focused on this relatively uncommon one because the clinic has expertise in it and an archive of tumor samples for research studies. "More and more, as these sequencing studies are being done, we're getting a new insight into really how these diseases work on a molecular basis — so not just how they look under the microscope, but really, genetically, what's going on," said Mayo pathologist Dr. Andrew Feldman.
