About this book


This volume aims to bring together efforts with a patient-oriented focus from physicians to diagnostics and clinical implications of the disease as mostly seen in the equatorial African setting. However, the chapters cover the breadth of studies on Burkitt’s lymphoma with some clues for the potential future of Burkitt’s lymphoma research that can have therapeutic benefits for patients.   

This text explore a range of topics associated with Burkitt’s lymphoma, including molecular biology, diagnosis, its association with AIDS and Malaria, immune responses, therapeutic approaches and a unique view from the bedside. This volume is comprehensive and unique and represents the most up-to-date clinical and research activities on Burkitt’s lymphoma.
