We studied the expression of CD200, an immunoglobulin superfamily membrane glycoprotein, in a wide range of B cell-derived neoplasms by immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded tissue sections. In addition to chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), CD200 is expressed in other B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders, including hairy cell leukemia. In addition, neoplastic cells in classical Hodgkin lymphoma are immunoreactive for CD200. CD200 was previously reported to be expressed in acute myeloid leukemia, and we find that it is also expressed in B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma. We conclude that CD200 may be a useful immunophenotypic marker in the evaluation of B cell-derived neoplasms. Furthermore, since an anti-CD200 immunotherapeutic agent is in clinical trials, a number of B cell-derived neoplasms in addition to CLL/SLL may be suitable therapeutic targets.
