A comparative study of the quality of DNA obtained from fresh frozen and formalin-fixed decalcified paraffin-embedded bone marrow trephine biopsy specimens using two different methods
BACKGROUND Given its prognostic value, there is renewed interest in molecular staging in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) using immunoglobulin heavy and light chain (IgH, IgL) gene rearrangements. AIMS To compare the efficiency of DNA amplification from fresh frozen and formalin-fixed decalcified paraffin-embedded (FFDPE) bone marrow trephines for use in molecular staging using two methods. METHODS After manually extracting DNA from 13 FFDPE and 14 fresh frozen trephine biopsy specimens, two...[Show more]
