Mast cells in lymphomas

Domenico Ribatti

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
