6Q DELETION IN WALDENSTRÖM MACROGLOBULINAEMIA NEGATIVELY AFFECTS TIME TO TRANSFORMATION AND SURVIVAL

Deletion of the long arm of chromosome 6 (del6q) is the most frequent cytogenetic abnormality in Waldenström macroglobulinaemia (WM), occurring in approximately 50% of patients. Its effect on patient outcome has not been completely established. In this study, they used fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) to analyse the prevalence of del6q in selected CD19+ bone …
