Primary central nervous system lymphoma: Novel precision therapies

Critical Reviews in Oncology/hematology
Patrizia MondelloFrancesco Bertoni


Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare and aggressive form of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The frontline treatment with high-dose methotrexate based immunochemotherapy is not curative for the majority of patients. Gene expression profiling and next-generation sequencing have recently provided plethora of data shedding light on pathogenic mechanisms sustain PCNSL and identifying potential vulnerable mechanisms to be explored therapeutically. Here, we review established molecular drivers of PCNSL and targeted drugs that may change the current therapeutic paradigm.

CNS Lymphoma

In CNS lymphoma, cancerous cells from lymph tissues or other parts of the body form tumors in the brain and/or spinal cord. Here is the latest research on this rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
