Datamonitor Healthcare Oncology Disease Analysis: NHL: Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)

September 17, 2021

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is an aggressive subtype of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), which originates in the lymphatic system when B lymphocytes become enlarged and proliferate uncontrollably to form a tumor mass. DLBCL can arise de novo or as a progression or transformation from more indolent disease such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (in which case it is also known as Richter’s transformation) or follicular lymphoma.

Aggressive lymphomas such as DLBCL are more susceptible to chemotherapy than indolent, slowly dividing lymphomas due to the rapidly dividing nature of the malignant cells. For this reason, complete cure is possible in about half of all patients. DLBCL is the most common form of NHL, accounting for 31% of adult cases in Western countries.
