Follicular lymphoma is the most common type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in the United States. Up to 90% of follicular lymphomas carry bcl-2/JH t(14;18)(q32;q21) chromosome translocation. The presence of the bcl-2 translocation has been associated with poor prognosis in one group of diffuse large-cell and follicular lymphoma patients. Analysis of bcl-2 translocations provides an important marker for detection and monitoring of malignancy during patient treatment and follow up.

Collect whole blood or bone marrow in an EDTA (lavender-top) tube
