Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Tumor microenvironment is involved in the pathogenesis and progression of human lymphomas. The lymphoma microenvironment is composed by stromal cells, immune cells (macrophages, plasma cells, mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, T- and B-cells), blood vessels and extracellular matrix proteins. This article is focused on the role of mast cells in lymphoma progression and angiogenesis. Mast cells might be regarded in a future perspective as a new target for the adjuvant treatment of tumors, including lymphomas.
