An estimated 8,490 Americans were diagnosed as having Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in 2010 [1]. HL is a B-cell lymphoma that arises from germinal center or post-germinal center B cells. Two types of classic HL (cHL) make up 95 % of HL diagnoses; in contrast, nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) is rare and has distinct pathologic features. cHL is unique in that the CD30-positive Reed-Sternberg (RS) cells often make up less than 1 % of the tumor and are surrounded by a rich microenvironment, including CD20-positive reactive B cells that are believed to provide survival signals to the RS cells.
