Anergy: The CLL cell limbo

Federico Caligaris-Cappio

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this issue of Blood, Duckworth et al find that in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), malignant cell anergy is associated with failure of inducing PRDM1 (BLIMP1), a critical regulator of differentiation into plasma cells, and that epigenetic modifications account for such failure. These findings link two major problems of CLL cells, the anergic response to B-cell receptor (BCR) stimulation and the incapacity to differentiate.
