Gastric Lymphoma

Common Name(s)

Gastric Lymphoma

The concept of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas was introduced by {3:Isaacson and Wright (1983)}. MALT lymphomas are now recognized as a distinct subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma ({605027}). B-cell lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT lymphomas) are the most common form of lymphoma arising in extranodal sites, in most cases arising in the gastric mucosa ({2:Isaacson and Spencer, 1995}).

Journal: Ann Epidemiol. 2015 Aug;25(8):626-636.e4.

 

Despite evidence from experimental studies indicating that the herbicide, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), is not carcinogenic, several epidemiology studies have evaluated links between 2,4-D and cancer. Some suggest that 2,4-D is associated with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), ...
