Biology of Hodgkin Cell Lines
Studies to characterize Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg cells in histological sections have yielded many conflicting data over the years. Even with progress in immunohistological technology, the histogenetic derivation of these cells remains unclear. Functional and genetic investigations are hampered by the scarcity of tumor cells in Hodgkin’s disease biopsy samples and the admixture of a variety of nonmalignant cells.
