45% of all patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma have a follicular lymphoma. More than 85% of follicular lymphomas and approximately 20% of diffuse large cell lymphomas carry at (14;18)(q32;Q21) gene translocation that causes deregulation of the expression of the bcl-2 gene, bcl-2 deregulation is associated with a poor prognosis. Detection of bcl-2 is useful in detecting and monitoring disease.
