11) It has been postulated that antigenic B-cell stimulation in the context of relatively preserved immune function, typical of the HAART era, could disproportionately promote germinal center pathways of lymphomagenesis.
Three gene expression subgroups are recognized: germinal center B-cell-like (Figure 1), activated B-cell-like, and type 3 or unclassfied.
