It has long been assumed that malignant T-cell lymphoma is a monoclonal disease. i.e. the tumour grows and expands from a single cell. In contrast to this traditional view, our ongoing investigations show for the first time evidence of bi- or oligo-clonal T-cell populations in angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma and its related entities. It is imperative to investigate whether each of these different clonal T-cell populations in a T-cell lymphoma is neoplastic, derived from a common progenitor cell population, and how they impact on disease presentation and treatment responses.
