As an immune escape mechanism tumor cells may downregulate expression of Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA). Loss of HLA class I and class II has been described in various subtypes of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), including the not otherwise specified (NOS) subgroup. 1,2 We analyzed HLA class I and class II expression in DLBCL not otherwise specified (NOS) to investigate whether there is an association between HLA expression, cell of origin (COO) and the recently reported FOXP1 expression in non-GCB DLBCL. 3 This article is protected by copyright.
